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,

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,
