Apologies for the randomly slow post week this week! I received this amazing tote from Tory Burch and I immediately felt like it could be the perfect bag for my laptop, Nook color, Blackberry, and everything else essential to business and travel. I happened to be in the Princeton area looking at houses with my brother and his wife and I realized that this bag belongs on the Princeton campus. It could be one of the most sophisticated and beautiful campuses I've seen and carrying this bag on my way to Art History class would just feel so scholarly and grown up. It's a perfect fit.
What I absolutely love about the clothing aspect of this outfit is just how affordable everything is! These are all classic pieces that I can reinvent over and over in different outfits and adding this pop of pink brought some color to my face. I must mention these bracelets because they are cheap enough to buy a whole bunch to stack up as opposed to the expensive ones where you can't even buy one without breaking the bank!
I'm switching gears a little and heading out of academia and towards the beaches in San Diego followed by LA and New Orleans so expect some cute Cali cool outfits along the way.

One day last week we took our vespa up to a coffee plantation and checked out the amazing views and rode around looking at coffee plants. I would have never guessed coffee looked like a berry before it was roasted and grounded to what we recognize. I can't explain how fresh the air is up in these mountains! I miss it so much already as I'm laying here on my death bed with a bad flu.
I found this ring at one of the markets and it has a cool Mayan figure etched into it (hard to tell in the picture). It's actually a men's ring and I can just picture someone from a cartel wearing it while doing shady business. Finding jewelry treasures like this is one of my favorite parts about traveling.
I still have so many more pictures to share from the trip! Thankfully I do because I have a feeling I will be down and out for a few more days trying to nurse this flu!

It's not often that you find a hotel that is so cozy and charming that you can't help but want to settle in, make it your own and never want to come home. Panza Verde, in Antigua Guatemala, basically fits every single category on my dream list: recreated Spanish Colonial ambiance, private fireplaces, luxurious bathrooms adorned with medieval candelabras, and endless gardens and terraces topped off with charming cupolas. After surveying the city it is definitely one of the best kept secrets in all of Antigua.
For a few days I was able to experience this boutique hotel firsthand and explore every charming corner and capture as much as I can on film to try to recreate the ambiance here for you. There are a few more pictures that I will put up soon and believe it or not there are even more areas to this hotel that are equally stunning.
Pretty much every corner of Antigua begs for resort clothing and I leap at any chance to wear them especially in a warm city that makes you feel transported back in time. Here, you walk around on cobblestone streets with 3 volcanos looming over you (one which was actually smoking) and you see crumbled Spanish architecture weathered from both time and a devastating earthquake.
I'm just hoping time slows down just a little more so I can delay going back to a grey and snowy New York!
