By the time you all read this blog post, I will be well on my way home, to Michigan! I always love a good excuse to go back, and a friend’s wedding is one of the best :) Before we left the hot and humid Boston, we headed down to Mixx for some frozen yogurt. I used to hate fro-yo (I swear it is colder than ice-cream and hurts my teeth!) until I got it endlessly in Mexico with Gracia. Well, I don’t think it is quite as good here (it’s like the Coke difference between countries I guess?!) but I now like it more… especially when I load Oreo crumbs on top of the fruit (hey, that’s still healthy, right?).

Anyways, here’s a casual look for walking around over the weekend. I like to use items I can’t easily wear at work, like ripped jeans, during my free days. I definitely don’t want a wardrobe that consists of only “work-appropriate” attire, and while I have a lot of clothing that can be used for work or “play” I still have some items solely dedicated to one of the two. These jeans are a prime example- never would or could I wear these to work, but I still love the look. So I do my best to get good use out of them over the weekends, while traveling, and at night. Do you all do the same?

Hope you’re having a great day.. good luck with the giveaway :)


Al momento en que vean esta entrada, estaré en Michigan ya con mi hermano y Mateo. Siempre busco razones de regresar a mi ciudad, y este fin de semana estaremos en el Mitón porque nuestros buenos amigos se van a casar. También vamos a finalizar unos detalles para nuestra boda para el año que viene. 

Antes de salir, fuimos a comer yogur congelado en Mixx. A Mateo le fascina el fro-yo pero yo prefiero el helado. No sé si estoy loca, pero me parezco que el fro-yo está más frío que el helado y me duelen los dientes muchos mientras que lo como. Pero, después de comerlo tantas veces en México con mi amiga Gracia, ahora tengo antojos de comerlo casi diario. Siempre pongo muchas galletas Oreo arriba de mi fruta.. mmm :) 

Bueno, llevé este look para caminar por la ciudad el fin de semana pasada. Hago un esfuerzo de utilizar piezas durante el fin de semana que no puedo llevar al trabajo, como estos jeans destruidos. Nunca podría llevar un look así a trabajar (no sé quién pueda de hecho…) pero, tampoco quiero un armario llenado de ropa designado para el trabajo. Por eso, trato de utilizar todo que tengo… incluyendo estos jeans. 

Espero que tengan un buen día…. suerte con el giveaway!
