Spring Ready | Anthropologie


I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Weekend. 
Over the weekend we celebrated Hazel's 10th birthday! It's definitely bittersweet. My little girl is now double digits. See more from her birthday celebration on my Instagram.

Last month I attended an exclusive virtual event hosted by Vogue and Anthropologie
On the hour long call an Anthropology stylist shared some upcoming Spring/Summer trends while introducing the new collection from Anthropologie. We talked color, prints and textures.

 After the event I was lucky enough to select one of the new pieces and this is the one I chose. 
This Solaris Maxi dress with ruffle straps is a super fun print and incredibly comfortable. What makes the dress enjoyable is the flowyness and the elasticity on the upper area. Today I'm styling it with a Bonobos blazer that I stole from Moe's closet. Oversized blazers have always been a favorite trend of mine through all seasons. 

When styling shoes with a pattern dress I like selecting the least noticeable color on the dress. In this case I went with orange and my Flor de Maria shoes paired perfectly to balance the look out. For eye accessories I chose my Miu Miu sunglasses that my best friend Maria gifted me for my birthday. To continue the pop of orange I added an orange clutch and gold accessories.

Espero que todas hayan tenido un maravilloso fin de semana de Pascua.
¡Durante el fin de semana celebramos el cumpleaños de Hazel! Definitivamente es agridulce. Mi niña ahora tiene dos dígitos, 10! Vea más de la celebración de su cumpleaños en mi Instagram.

El mes pasado asistí a un evento virtual exclusivo organizado por Vogue y Anthropologie.
En la llamada de una hora, un estilista de Anthropologie compartió algunas de las próximas tendencias de primavera / verano mientras presentaba la nueva colección de Anthropologie. Hablamos de color, estampados y texturas.

 Después del evento tuve la suerte de seleccionar una de las nuevas piezas y esta es la que elegí.
Este vestido Solaris Maxi con tirantes con volantes es un estampado súper divertido e increíblemente cómodo. Lo que hace que el vestido sea agradable es la fluidez y la elasticidad en la zona superior. Hoy lo voy a estilar con un blazer Bonobos que robé del armario de mi esposo. Los blazers de gran tamaño siempre han sido una de mis tendencias favoritas en todas las temporadas.

Cuando estilo zapatos con un vestido estampado, me gusta seleccionar el color que menos se note en el vestido. En este caso elegí el color naranja y mis zapatos de Flor de Maria combinaron a la perfección para equilibrar el look. Para los accesorios para los ojos elegí mis gafas de sol Miu Miu que mi mejor amiga María me regaló para mi cumpleaños. Para continuar con el toque de naranja, agregué un bolso de mano naranja y accesorios color oro.

Music to Listen to this Week

This week I've been having Camilo's new album called 'Mis Manos' on repeat!
I was on the edge of my seat after watching his performance on Jimmy Fallon a few days ago. 
If you're not familiar, Camilo Echeverry is a Colombian singer, songwriter and record producer. He is signed with Sony Latin records and has been my favorite spanish artist for as long as I can remember. 

Most recently he's been pretty popular here in America.. and to that I say: About time!! 
Yes his music is great but if you get a chance, listen to his songs acoustic. Your heart will 1000x melt.  

Here's his new album ( rated by favorites )

2. Mareado 
6.  Rolex

Here are a few old favorite songs from Camilo.

Visiting the American Museum of Natural History


Upper West Side of Manhattan
200 Central Park West, New York, NY 10024

Wednesday - Sunday 10am - 5:30pm
Monday and Tuesday CLOSED


Every New Yorker is currently celebrating warmer weather and by warmer I mean mid-50's. Can you blame us? It's been the longest Winter in history! At least it feels like it, specially for our kids. Which is why I've been taking full advantage of each warm day we get.

Last week I took my family to the American Museum of Natural History (one of my daughters favorite Museums in the city). We have been supporting the Museum for over 12 years and I wanted James to reach a good age to visit as well. He's in love with dinosaurs! James favorite dinosaur is the Tyrannosaurus better known as T-Rex. Coincidently The American Museum of Natural History has a new T-Rex on display until March 14th. Tickets are still available for today and tomorrow only. Unfortunately, tickets are sold out for this weekend. If you have a dinosaur lover I highly recommend taking them to see this.

This is one of the best Covid-friendly New York City activities for the entire family.

Todos los neoyorquinos celebran actualmente un clima más cálido y por más cálido me refiero a mediados de los 50. ¿Puedes culparnos? ¡Ha sido el invierno más largo de la historia! Al menos se siente así, especialmente para nuestros hijos. Por eso he aprovechado al máximo cada día cálido que tenemos.

La semana pasada llevé a mi familia al American Museum of Natural History (uno de los museos favoritos de mis hijas en la ciudad). Hemos estado apoyando al Museo durante más de 12 años y queríamos que James llegara a una buena edad para visitarlo también. Está enamorado de los dinosaurios. El dinosaurio favorito de James es el Tyrannosaurus, más conocido como T-Rex. Coincidentemente, el Museo Americano de Historia Natural tiene un nuevo T-Rex en exhibición hasta el 14 de Marzo. Los boletos todavía están disponibles para hoy y mañana solamente. Desafortunadamente, las entradas están agotadas para este fin de semana. Si tienes un amante de los dinosaurios, te recomiendo que lo lleves a ver esto.

Esta es una de las mejores actividades de la ciudad de Nueva York amigables con Covid para toda la familia.

New from Van Leeuwen Ice Cream


Van Leeuwen Ice Cream is one of my favorite ice-cream brands (no surprise there). If you follow me on social media you know that my family frequents their Williamsburg store ( 204 Wythe Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11249 ) almost every other week. 

That being the case, I am so excited to share that Van Leeuwen Ice Cream just launched 6 brand new flavors in brand new forms. Each box comes with 4 individually wrapped ice cream bars.


Van Leeuwen makes-from-scratch dairy and vegan ice creams. They opened 23 scoop shops in NYC and LA, has products in grocery stores across the country and is available to order for nationwide shipping from their website. All the while, continuing the ultimate goal of making good ice cream that makes you feel good.
