I am currently Out Of Office

I know I am supposed to say that I’ll have limited access to the internet and won’t be able to respond until I return, but let’s be real I’ll be Instagramming and posting every moment I have a chance. I promised myself I will try to disconnect, get away and enjoy my vacation as much as I can, but naturally, I just had to post on Instagram and Stories to keep you guys in the know of what I’m doing, where I’m relaxing, and what I’m relaxing in. I packed a lot of swim briefs and swim shorts by Vilebrequin . Needless to say, I went for bold prints and colorful solids. Summer is all about that punch of pattern and more.   I have a very special piece to show you (which is possibly my favorite): the Charles, a retro-inspired swimsuit from the 20’s that you all have seen me sport on my Stories. This, by far is one of my favorite pieces this season—I know it is a little bit different from regular swimsuits, and …

The Ritz-Carlton Cancun

Cancun is definitely a place to love. I recently got back from a four-day escapade with The Ritz-Carlton Cancun. The city is way bigger than I imagined and has a whole lot to offer besides from the beautiful turquoise waters and the friendly and polite people of the city. This isn’t my first time to Mexico, however, it is my first time visiting la Riviera Maya, and it was the perfect way to top off the summer season. Every experience that The Ritz-Carlton offers is always the best of the best: From the food and location to the staff and entertainment. On my first night at the hotel, I had the chance to experience the Chef’s Table with Chef Mara Barba, which I highly recommend if you want an intimate dining experience. The menu for the night was Mexican cuisine with a local twist. We were treated to a 6-course meal, which was prepared inches away from us, and in between bites we sipped on local Mexican wines. As she cooks she explains the story …

MIAMI

So… I went to Miami for the #rd Annual Veuve Clicquot Carnival, it was my first time assisting to this event and for sure it won’t be the last one, I had so much fun, I am sure you already know that if you were following my trip on Instagram and insta-stories. I wanted to share with you guys the outfits I wore during my days in Miami, from the iconic Louis Vuitton’s Pink Giraffes polo shirt to the many swim shorts I took to Miami Beach.  If you love any of the pieces I’m wearing just click on the image for more details.

VELORUM SPRING SUMMER 17

We shoot these beautiful pieces in Aruba, we decided to go south, to San Nicolaas, away from the sandy beaches of Noord. It is hard to tell you which one is my favorite piece from the collection but they are all unique and special. The mesh tops, the jumpsuits, the print on the shorts. This is truly a special collection that I had the privilege to shoot with my friend Isaiah. All these pieces are available online and in selected stores around the world, click here to visit Velorum’s website.

BJORN BORG SWIMWEAR

Bjorn Borg swimwear, “designed to make you feel active and attractive”, this is how the iconic brand describes their swimwear and they’re right. The multicolor piece I’m wearing is called Dryland, these vibrant shorts really pops and that’s how I like my swimwear, to really attract attention. They’re 5 inches, so just above the new to get the legs really tanned. The print is really interesting, it is a colored desert that at first, to me, it looked like butterfly wings: I wore it this past weekend to the beach, they’re quick dryers which is one of the most important features on a great pair of swim shorts. They have a classic cut with an elastic waistband and cord to keep them in place. The design is on point, they do not look puffy at al which is another important feature. Whos likes those unflattering puffy shorts? The quality is great like every Bjorn Borg piece and the price is fantastic. They also feature pockets on each side and a dark mesh lining which is very appropriate …

WATCH YOUR BACK | XARIFA

I’ve been wearing Xarifa for over 3 years now, and it is one of the top brands for luxury swimwear. I once blogged about them and called these shorts “the most elegant swimwear” and I still stand by that affirmation. The fabric and cut of these shorts set them apart, even thou they have an elastic waistband these shorts will never look puffy and that’s always a concern when you are buying shorts with elastic. The model I’m wearing for this blog post is called Fatima, it has an optical print in which the eye plays a leading role, that characteristic symbol of the Middle East signifying the ability to “see through different eyes” on a voyage of discovery to unexplored worlds and realities… in my book, this evil eye print keeps you protected at the beach… from sharks and bad tan perhaps? *wink* Here a more detailed description: Superleggero®  Polyester shell Elastic waistband Comfortable mesh net lining Adjustable cotton drawstring Button fastening and fold-in back pocket Nickel free Italian hardware Care: Gentle cycle machine wash [30°C …
