Hot Hot Heat

New York is SO hot right now. It’s hot and muggy and it’s actually summer now – full force. The best way to stay cool in this heat? Flowy lightweight dresses.

Sure, dresses are what I wear pretty much year round but the summer is my favorite because it’s the easiest to figure out. I just throw one on, sandals and off we go. Zero need for layering.

Another great thing about the summer…sunflowers! Look at these beauties blooming right in front of our house!

The Club Car

If you know me at all, you know I love food. I think the only person who may love food more than me is my husband, Spencer. So, I luckily can count on him to find the most amazing restaurants in NYC for us to try. Last night we willed ourselves to make the trek to Midtown West and try his new obsession. Before dinner we took a stroll through lovely Washington Mews at the NYU campus. I really enjoy walking through this tiny street because it feels like nothing else in NYC. It’s quiet, it’s never busy and it’s absurdly charming!

Dress: H&M
Shoes: Loeffler Randall (Similar)
Earrings: H&M – found in store (Similar: here & here)
Bag: Cult Gaia


Dinner was at a surf & turf pop up with a simple pre-fix menu at $65 per person – The Club Car. Located inside the McKittrick Hotel you can find this gem of a restaurant that opened on June’s 1st by Lee Hanson and Riad Nasr, who were co-executive chefs of Balthazar and Minetta Tavern.

Prior to dinner we stopped at Gallow Green on the roof of the McKittrick. I love this place in the summer as it’s filled with beautiful greenery and delicious drinks.

After a couple of drinks (WhistlePig on the rocks!) we headed down to the Club Car where we were greeted by a lovely bell boy who showed us to the hostess.

The decor rings true to The Club Car name – there are actual club cars you can sit in and enjoy dinner!

Of course these are reserved for larger parties, so we sat in the main dining room which was also beautiful. Once seated we were able to order off the menu below:

To start, we had the option of a chilled cauliflower soup topped with lobster and pine nuts or a mixed greens salad with fava beans. We got one of each and both were great but the soup was far more interesting. They also served delicious cast iron dinner rolls – very Balthazar! – and a super fresh crudité platter. I liked this touch because before a super heavy meal it’s nice to have some fresh veggies.

Second course consisted of a Grilled Boneless Ribeye which you can top with one of the following:

  • Scallops
  • Soft Shell Crab
  • Lobster (+ $10)
  • Razor Clams
  • Oxtail & Bone Marrow

We went for the Soft Shell Crab and Scallops. I thought both were amazing but the Soft Shell Crab definitely stole the show. It was buttery and lemony and just absurdly delicious. Still thinking of it today!

Dessert was a Lemon Chiffon Cake or Chocolate Caramel Tart. Again, we got one of each and can safely say both were equally delicious. I mean, what dessert isn’t, right?

I would highly recommend a visit to this place before it closes at end of summer!

One of my favorite places in the city is The High Line so I feel pretty lucky to work in a building that opens right into it. When I’m having a stressful workday or just need a little air it’s perfect to walk out and enjoy some time in our version of nature. Yesterday particularly was a long day so when my friend Shenika of came by to invite me out I jumped out of my desk!

A walk you say? Yes, I say!

Belt: Zara (Similar: here)
Shoes: Nine West
Sunglasses: H&M
Earrings: Free People


Yes, I know it’s Tuesday but Monday’s are everyone’s least favorite day of the week, right? I generally can’t wake up because my sleep schedule has been torn apart from the weekend, I was too lazy to cook on Sunday so I don’t have lunch to eat and everyone around me is wishing it was Friday…

The one thing that will get me through a lousy Monday is feeling good about how I look. So, I try to make my Monday outfit the best possible with the knowledge that my efforts will slowly decline throughout the week.

This is what I wore this Monday…

It’s finally summer in NYC and nothing makes me happier than crisp white clothes like this Zara eyelet tank dress. We were invited to our friend Marrisa’s for a rooftop BBQ where her husband, Alex, made the most amazing meal!

We walked through South Park Slope on our way there and picked up coffee at DUB Pies. It always shocks me how nice a simple white dress can be in the summer! If you buy this dress  make sure to size down! It runs big.

Wedding Wear

Dress: Lulu*s
Bag: Coach
Shoes: Lulu*s
Stacking Rings : Lulu*s

Wedding season…it always creeps up on me! No matter how far in advance I know about it I’m always left wondering “what should I wear?!?”. This one particularly came out of nowhere because just a few weeks earlier we were in Chile celebrating our own wedding anniversary. Next thing you know, I had a week to figure out what to wear!

I resorted to an old favorite – Lulu*s. I actually have been shopping at Lulu*s for over 10 years now! I went to school in Chico, California, where Lulu*s started as a brick and mortar. So, it only seemed fitting that I would buy from them given I was going to a wedding not too far from Chico. I was able to find a dress, shoes and jewelry!

When my sister called to tell me she was celebrating her birthday in Guadalajara I knew I had to be there to celebrate with her. Guadalajara is one of the most beautiful cities in Mexico and we spent a lot of time there while growing up so I knew going back would be amazing. The last time I was there was eight years ago, just a few weeks before moving to NYC! 

Without hesitation, we bought tickets from Mexican airline, Volaris, who recently started flying direct from JFK to Guadalajara’s Miguel Hidalgo airport. 

One of the most picturesque and adorable towns outside of Guadalajara is Tequila, Jalisco so naturally it was one of our stops. As you can imagine, this is where Tequila, the drink, comes from. The area has the perfect growth conditions for agave plants.

So, we paid a visit to one of the oldest tequilerias in the area, La CofradiaLa Cofradia is an amazing old Hacienda at the entrance of Tequila.  We got a tour of the gorgeous property and were able to do a tasting. Of course we took advantage of the amazing scenery to take some shots…

Cuando mi hermana me llamó para decirme que iba a celebrar su cumpleaños en Guadalajara sabía que tenía que estar allí para celebrar con ella. Guadalajara es una de las ciudades más bellas de México y pasamos mucho tiempo en la adolescencia, así que sabía que la íbamos a pasar increíble.

La última vez que estuve allí fue hace ocho años, tan sólo unas semanas antes de mudarme a Nueva York!  Sin dudarlo, compramos boletos de la aerolínea mexicana, Volaris, que recientemente comenzó a volar directo desde JFK hasta el aeropuerto de Guadalajara Miguel Hidalgo.

Uno de los más pintorescos y adorables pueblos fuera de Guadalajara es Tequila, Jalisco así que naturalmente fue una de nuestras paradas. Como se pueden imaginar, aquí es donde nació el Tequila, la bebida. La zona cuenta con las condiciones climáticas ideales para plantas de agave.

Visitamos  a uno de las tequilerias más antiguas de la zona, La Cofradia.  La Cofradia es una antigua Hacienda increíble en la entrada del Tequila. Nos dieron un tour de la propiedad preciosa y pudimos hacer una cata. Por supuesto que aprovechamos de el increíble paisaje de tomar algunas fotos

With the amount of travel I was doing in early Fall, weddings, work, etc. I have been running around like a crazy person so I haven’t had time to post this super fun photo shoot I did with my uncle.

Now that the weather is cooling off in NYC these pictures make me miss the warm Palm Springs sun. Luckily, in a little over 2 weeks we will be en route to Guadalajara. Another place I hold close to my heart.

Con la cantidad de viajes a principios del otoño , bodas , el trabajo, etc. he andado por ahí como loca. No he tenido tiempo de publicar esta super divertida sesión de fotos que hice con mi tío.

Ahora que el clima se está enfriando en NYC hecho de menos el cálido sol de Palm Springs. Por suerte , en un poco más de 2 semanas vamos a estar en Guadalajara. Otro lugar que guardo cerca de mi corazón .

Greetings From Palm Springs









Wearing/Usando || ZARA Sleeveless Blouse | ZARA Kelly Green Trousers | ZARA Metallic Block Heel


Way before Spencer and I started taking pictures together my trusted photographer was my uncle, Jose Becerra. He is one of the most creative, talented, kind and good looking men I know 🙂

Most of my family, including my uncle, live in Palm Springs. I’m lucky enough to have such a wonderful place to call home. It’s the perfect place to decompress when I visit California. This weekend I was fortunate enough to spend some time with my uncle. He, of course, offered to help with the blog. Here are are a few of the shots we took…

Mucho antes de que Spencer y yo comenzamos a tomar fotos juntos mi fotógrafo de confianza era mi tío, José Becerra. Él es uno de los hombres más creativos , talentosos, amable y bien parecido que conozco 🙂

La mayor parte de mi familia, incluyendo a mi tío, vive en Palm Springs. Tengo la suerte de tener un lugar tan maravilloso para llamar casa . Es el lugar perfecto para descomprimir cuando visito California. Este fin de semana tuve la suerte de pasar algún tiempo con mi tío. Él, por supuesto , se ofreció a ayudar con el blog . Aquí están algunas de las fotos que tomo …

Paris, as we know, is always a good idea.

I was fortunate enough to spend the last week in the beautiful city of lights. The last time I was in Paris was 2 years ago with Spencer and we had the best time. This was no different. The weather was a lot cooler than I thought it would be so I made pit stop at ZARA and found the incredible pieces you can see in these pictures.

These shots were taken at Colonnes de Buren at The Palais-Royal – amazing place to visit if you have a moment.

During my time I ate and visited incredible places. See below for some of my favorite spots:

Le Petit Casimir – The highlight of my trip was this amazing aunthetic restaurant. Owned by my friend Kathelen’s father. Le Petit Casimir brings aunthetic home cooked food you cannot find anywhere else in Paris. If you’re looking for an entertaining host and the most amazing creme brulee (made with an iron not a torch) then visit LPC.

Bus Palladium – Want to dance until the sun comes up? This is the place for you. I was lucky enough to come here with my friend Kathelen and her amazing family…didn’t disappoint

Les Chouettes – Possibly the most adorable place I have ever been. The place is 3 stories of impecably docorated amazingness. Once you get past the dining area you can look up and see two more floors of velvet and leather chairs placed next to gorgeous fire places. There is even a library on the 3rd floor so you can read while you sip on their delicious cockails.

The Beef Club – Self explanatory….all beef everything!

Cafe Marly – Want to have a perfect view of the Louvre AND the Eiffel Tower? Then come to Marly. They have an amazing selection of wine and best service in Paris.

París, como sabemos, es siempre una buena idea.

Tuve la suerte de pasar la última semana en la hermosa ciudad de las luces. La última vez que estuve en París fue hace 2 años con Spencer y nos lo pasamos de maravilla. El clima estuvo mucho más fresco de lo que pensé así que hice una parada en ZARA y encontré las piezas increíbles que pueden ver en estas fotos.

Estas fotos fueron tomadas en Colonnes de Buren en el Palais-Royal. Les recomiendo una visita.

Durante mi tiempo ahi comí y visité lugares increíbles. Vean a continuación algunos de mis lugares favoritos:

Le Petit Casimir – Lo más destacado de mi viaje fue este increíble restaurante. Perteneciendo al padre de mi amiga, Kathelen, Le Petit Casimir trae comida casera que no pueden encontrar en ningún otro lugar en París. Si están buscando un anfitrion entretenido y el más increíble creme brulee (hecho con un planchar no una antorcha), entonces visiten LPC.

Bus Palladium – El mejor lugar para bailar hasta que salga el sol…Tuve la suerte de venir aquí con mi amiga Kathelen y sus hermanos… no decepcionó

Les Chouettes -Posiblemente el lugar más adorable en el que he estado . Les Chouettes es de 3 pizos impecablemente decorados . Una vez pasado el comedor se puede mirar hacia arriba y ver dos plantas más llenas de sillas de terciopelo y cuero colocadas junto a chimeneas. Hay incluso una biblioteca en la 3ª planta para leer mientras se disfruta de sus deliciosos cockails .

The Beef Club – se explica por sí mismo…

Cafe Marly – ¿Quieres tener una vista perfecta del Louvre y la Torre Eiffel? Entonces ven a Marly. Tienen una increíble selección de vinos y el mejor servicio
