Welcome!  I want to start by telling you friends to never stop hunting at second hand stores because you never know what kind of gems you will find. Check out this gem of a messenger’s bag that I found from a thrift store back home. It is a real vintage Dooney & Bourke, I verified! It is in great condition externally as it is internally.

Now, let’s talk about the weather conditions. It is pretty humid here unlike northern Texas but nothing like Miami so I knew exactly what I needed. However, I had to break down and wear something orange because it was the only color this dress came in and I really loved the dress. I picked it because it is loose, airy and has a little bit of the culture’s style. Costing me only fourteen dollars without tax made for an easy decision. I also needed the dress. I made the mistake of not checking the weather before packing.

As I sit here and am thinking about needs, I need to make a souvenir list. Today is our last here in San Antonio and we need a few take home mementos. What are some you all collect when traveling? I would love to hear your suggestions!

Happy Friday everyone!

The Alamo in Black

 

Good evening everyone. I pray that your day was better than ours. Our youngest came down ill and so we have been resting all today. Today is when we had originally planned to visit The Alamo but had to decided to do so last-minute yesterday. In making that decision I had to get dressed quickly.

It is always quick to throw on a maxi so I chose this basic look. I dressed it up a tad with these beaded sandals which made me feel a little more put together for the amount of time I had. I was also quite comfortable walking around while learning a little a more about Texan and Mexican history.

It was very surreal to stand somewhere I have only read and learned about in books. It was even more exciting that we were also educated on the fashion of the men during the battle at The Alamo. If possible and you haven’t already you need to visit!

Is there anything else anyone can suggest for my little family to do or see while we have a few days left?!

Good night,

It’s Monday, yey. I know most are not enthusiastic about this day but I am. I am this week anyway!

We have experienced everything that San Antonio has to offer except the shopping. What kind of vacation would we experience with out a little shopping too, right? So that is what is on the to do list for today.

Lyianna had her own little to do list today and that was to wear this dress, again. It has become one of her favorites! I am grateful we found it for $8 at a second hand store …

Thank you for following along on our little adventures,

Happy Sunday everyone! Thanks for following along this week as my family and I have enjoyed celebrating with San Antonio’s community. Their Fiesta has been fun. I have received a couple emails requesting further information on San Antonio’s festivals and city. I will try my best to write a post on all of that for you, soon!

Today we will be relaxing at a resort to give ourselves a break from all of the sightseeing and walking. This dress is one of my favorites for doing just that. Any maxi dress would be comfortable for lounging but the subtle ruffles on this particular one keeps it from being plain and boring.

I can’t wait to do some more swimming, reading and napping today. I hope ya’ll get to do some of that too.

Enjoy your Sunday,

Happy Pueblita Dress

 Happy weekend ya’ll! While in the midst of San Antonio’s annual Fiesta I am falling more in love with the Mexican culture. Next to their delicious food my favorite part is their fashion.

I specifically love their famous pueblita dress. It is comfortable, modest and breathable. The dress comes in many different colors. As many of you know in following us over the last couple of years my daughter and I love to match. Yes, I do mean WE. She now asks to pick what we wear and chose our yellow dresses. Her reason was because they were bright and happy. 

Once we joined the celebration downtown we found not be the only “tourists” who dressed up. We were even being thanked by many for participating and supporting their festival. I highly recommend that when you are traveling to partake in whatever traditions you can, it is a blessing not only to you but others. 
God bless,

It’s day seven of the famous Fiesta here in San Antonio, Texas and we are enjoying the celebration. It has been a beautifully cultured experience for my little family. Last night we were serenaded by Mariachi bands at dinner. Many of you have experienced this but this was unique because the bands were on boats floating by on the river, known as the Ford Mariachi Festival.

You may least expect it when traveling but fashion is just a huge part of life even on vacation. I packed my bags with my own style but have been so inspired by the cultural fashion on this trip. The Mexican and Spanish sophistication here is so traditional and colorful that I have to endeavor by brightening up my wardrobe.

I have started with this Mariachi sombrero. It literally took me about an hour to decide on a color! To know me is to know that if I truly like something, I want it in every color. Guess what? I want one in every color, lol. This iconic hat is a statement piece in itself but with this shade of fuchsia it just pops that much more.

Have a great day,

Many of you have probably already seen via my Instagram feed that I was blessed to go to an NBA playoff game. Vacationing here in San Antonio I was able to cross off another basketball game bucketlist by cheering on the Spurs. Having also been a cheerleader back in my youth there was no thinking twice about having fashionable team spirit. It made for a night of comfort and fun! Anyone else enjoying the playoffs? I want to see so tag me for fun @sundayinstyle! Thanks for reading and enjoy your week!

I took an awkward spot and transformed it into an open and refreshing space. When we first moved into this home I fell in love with this space because it was right off of the play room. I envisioned myself at a desk doing my work while simultaneously watching our children play. I kept it simple and classic making it timeless. It was also a budget friendly project by purchasing everything from the above stores. Now I am just waiting on the chair’s arrival to say it’s finished! Happy Monday ya’ll!
