HAZE














 Cynthia wore...
Sunglasses: Zara
Basic Top: Banana Republic
Shorts: Topshop
Sheer Dress: Shape Shiftr


Although Puerto Vallarta has been gracing us with some chilly winter weather in the mornings and at night, it is still sunny and dreamy during the day. One of our favorite spots has become La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, from the town to the marina and the beautiful beaches that surround it, this is the place to be at the moment!  I wore a basic tee with some denim shorts and this amazing sheer dress as a cape for my dreamy look at La Cruz! hope you all had a great weekend as well!

DIY: RIPPED JEANS





Amanda wore...

Camisole: Urban Outfitters
Collar Shirt: Urban Outfitters
Jeans: Mango
Pumps: Zara
Bracelet: Zara


So Puerto Vallarta has been starting to feel a little chilly now, that means its time to pull out the light sweaters and jeans! Yes that is what winter time in Mexico is like and as cold as it will ever get here.
Looking through my closet I found these Mango white jeans that I had gotten some years ago... So I decided I had to transform them. Time for some DIY! As easy as taking a cutter and start ripping them. Its fun in case you want to try it! Now these have turned into a whole different pair of new jeans that I can style in many different ways. Im happy with the outcome! What do you guys think?

PARADISO











Postcards from one of our favorite places in Puerto Vallarta! It's amazing for us to to be able to call this paradise home. As you may know, we write about our favorite venues in each destination that we go to; and at home our very top pick has to be Ocean Grill. We have kept coming back to this amazing restaurant/beach club since the opening! and after being gone for a year, we came back to find the greatest surprise! They do not only serve the best food, and have a little amazing emerald-colored beach right next to it, they also have a little floating island where you can tan and relax! Does it get any better than that? Ocean Grill never disappoints, but this time it really blew us away with its amazing setting and great hospitality. The owner, a good friend, is always providing with the best customer service and making sure you have the best experience. If you are in Puerto Vallarta, this is an absolute must! Come see the place that will exceed all expectations. You can call to make a reservation and they will send a boat to pick you up from Boca de Tomatlan, or if you are adventurous you can take a 1hr 30min hike from Boca! We always do the hike, its not only a great work out but a fantastic opportunity to get in touch with nature and admire the jungle of Puerto Vallarta. 
Also, you must try the Marlin Tostadas!

With love...A+C

MARINA










Cynthia wore...

Hat: Topshop
Sunglasses: Zara
Camisole: Uniqlo
Shorts:Zara
Vest: Elie Tahari
Shoes:Zara
Bag: Zara


This weekend we decided to go to La Cruz de Huanacaxtle for the day! The marina in riviera nayarit is so beautiful and relaxing! On sundays there is a farmer's market at the pier, where you can purchase local goods and souvenirs while listening to some mexican tunes. It is really a place worth seeing if you happen to be in the neighborhood! We had some ice cream by the bay, looked at the artisans shops and tasted mexican delicacies.

The day was so colorful and bright so I opted for a contrasting look and wear an all black outfit.
After La Cruz, we went out for some margaritas at a local restaurant, the perfect way to end the evening.
Can't wait for more beautiful days like this in sunny Mexico!

COURTYARDS & COBBLESTONES









Amanda wore...
Top: Zara
Skirt: Topshop
Bracelets: Zara
Clutch: Mango
Sunglasses: Ray Ban
Sandals: Steve Madden

Still back in our hometown where the summer is practically never ending! It is November already and we are hearing of the first snow in New York, but we are still in spaghetti straps and sandals enjoying the sun-rays. Feeling lucky for this Mexican weather, so we are still going to share our tropical outfits with you in case you want to dream of the summertime or if you happen to be in a tropical destination like us! White attire is my ultimate favorite when it comes to summer! Perfect to stay fresh and to bring out that tan you got earlier on the beach. It can also easily be dressed down with sneakers and flats or made dressier by pairing it with some heels. Very easy and super chic for the warmer days!

COWBOYS AND ALIENS









Amanda wore..
Blouse: Ali & Kris
Shorts: LevisVest: Zara, Clutch: MangoSunglasses: Zara
Cynthia wore..
Blouse: Ali & Kris
Shorts: Topshop, Vest: Zara, Sunglasses: Zara


Today is a double feature with Ali & Kris print blouses! We went for a casual look in the heat of Mexico! The first blouse we paired with destroyed denim to capture the whole boho feeling, love these colors they are perfect for sunny days or can also be paired with a black vest and some skinny jeans for an edgier look. The second galactic blouse is just so much fun to wear! bright colors that make a statement on its own. We paired this one with leather white shorts from topshop and we are loving the whole futuristic theme for a casual day. Cynthia was even bringing out the vivid colors of the mexican markets by strolling with this galactica top.
This was a fun day out being touristy in our own hometown in Puerto Vallarta! We know its probably cold elsewhere in the world but here summery days remain in sight and what best than to stay cool and stylish.
