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,

d
