Styling Black for Summer

Black Maxi 22

Hola Chicas,

Hope you all had a great week. So black is one of my fav colors and the main reason is cause it makes me look thin. lol. I was so happy I found this maxi. I love how open and airy it is and looks perfect for summer. Before I talk about this look, I had even styled a black jumpsuit for visiting theĀ  Tabacon hot springs in Costa Rica. You can see the look here.

I wore this maxi on my trip to Seville, Spain and it was perfect for the hot weather. All the pictures here are taken either in the Santa Cruz neighborhood or the Alcazar of Seville. You can read my full travel post here. Continue reading

Barcelona, Spain in 3 days

Barcelona 16

A city overflowing with art and beautiful buildings and full of life and energy, it was really hard to say adios and fly back to San Francisco. There is so much to do here, I am at a loss where to start. This is the best I could do in 3 days to scratch the surface of this vibrant city. Continue reading

Hola,

Hope you enjoyed reading my blog post on “Madrid in 2 days” last week. So from Madrid, I headed down south towards the very beautiful city of Seville (pronounced Seviya). Seville was everything Madrid wasn’t. It’s known as the “Frying Pan” of Spain and is located in the Andalusian region. I loved this place as it gave me the actual flavor of Spain that Madrid lacked. The weather was nice and warm (can get really hot in summer), the streets and buildings were beautiful, the sangria strong and the tapas hot. If you want to see a Flamenco show in Spain – I would highly suggest you do so in the South. One of the mistakes I made was not spending enough time in Seville. I would highly suggest you spend at-least 2 days here. But if you were on a time crunch like me, follow my itinerary below: Continue reading
