Today, I am fully equipped in Forever21.  I recently picked up this amazing lime top during their end of the season sale and have been getting so much wear out of it. Super light and airy. Pairing it with my favorite pair of boyfriend shorts is so ideal for summer.

This past week, I trekked my way through the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. I have to say it was an awesome experience and definitely a memorable trip for me.  We stay at the Ritz Carlton where we enjoyed breakfast in bed, open hour pool, and the best mojito- no joke. Anyways back to the few highlights of my trip. Food Food Food! Foodie dreams from the fresh seafoods, fruits and local delicacies such as monfongo, carne guisada, and pasteles.  I was pretty blown away from the freshness of the food and kindness of the locals. I rarely review restaurants but Budatai, an asian theme cuisine located in Condado district definitley deserve one. The pork dumplings, tuna tartare and rack of lambs were cooked to perfection.I could literally go through each thing we did but it would probably take up a whole day to read. However I did enjoy heading to Rio Piers Market, Old San Juan, Vieques Island (ferry ride however was not my best friend ), and Luquillo kiosks.

Thank you all for reading and remember life is short take a vacation and trek away!

Finally, theres nice consist warm weather in Richmond and due to the bike race this past weekend, most of the streets were shut down. So of course I took this opportunity to take a stroll downtown hitting up some of my favorite tapas resturants.

 Since the weather is getting warmer Im allowed to show a little more skin.  I decided to pair  my white loose fitting crop top from Topshop with my favorite boyfriend jeans. Lately I have been obsessed with the color white and if you follow me on Instagram , then you might have seen my latest obsession, the Chanel boy bag in white sheep leather. I just think its just so crisp and classic looking. Plus you can never go wrong with Chanel.  To finish off my outfit I threw on my super comfortable nude heels. 

Thank you all for reading, have a good night everyone.

Love,

 Melba

Yesterday's weather was perfect for a short sleeve button down and a flowy skirt. I made a comment the other day about how indecisive the weather is here and to prove my theory, it snowed today.

Personally, I love anything that drapes and adore clothing that is loose but fitting in the right places.  Tucking in one side of my shirt adds an interesting asymmetric change to the look.

Our modern and cozy hotel ( Hudson Hotel ) 
breakfast at Red Cork 
 Finally got the chance to meet Adorable Joan
A few weeks ago I trekked my way to New York City for fashion week. Turtle necks,  two pair of leggings, boots and a few layer of outerwear was what I needed to survive this insanely cold weather. Nonetheless, the energy at fashion week is absolutely amazing.  Having the chance to meet fashion icons, designers and bloggers like myself was an amazing experience.
