Brooks Brothers Puffer Coat OOTD x FBF

I wish I could say that everyday in New York city feels gloriously warm, truly, but that is simply not the reality and I’d be completely lying to you. This is me, almost everyday, wrapped up in a heavy duty puffer coat that bundles me up like a sleeping bag. This one in particular is from Brooks Brothers, its a knee length dark navy blue puffer coat with a cute black feather trim to keep my face warm lol.

Lets raise a glass to effortless, simple and functional outfits cause life is stressful enough!

Cheers to not being famous enough to draw out paparazzi who want to snap pictures of your every step, unapologetically and ruthlessly, whether you look cute or not!

Thank goodness sake for this amazing lightweight Mountain Buggy stroller and for museums that house ruins and classic paintings from ancient times!

Here is a little recap of my outfit and a vlog of the days events!

This post is a bit of a throwback because it was on January 16th of 2018! This day was extra special because it was my daughters official first birthday. We decided to celebrate it by taking her to the museum and have a little mini photoshoot but she was not having it because she was asleep the whole time! Thank God #amen lol regardless my husband and I really enjoyed it because there was a lot of things, a lot of history to experience once we were inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan. Its so big and beautiful, every corner is instagram worthy and it really takes your breath away once you step inside. I really don’t think there is another museum like it (or maybe one that I’ve yet to visit). So this is a throwback Thursday kind of post, I had completely forgotten about this day, which was buried under all the other pictures of random life shenanigans on my iPhone.

I hope you enjoy and maybe even brings a little smile to your face, like if you like and follow for more content. Let me know what you think of the video or the outfit below in the comments, until next time!

For this weekend adventure and mothers day, I visited the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens where they had a variety of plant species native to different regions of Asia. The colors were so vibrant and exciting to see that they almost felt hypnotizing lol. It was so pleasing to smell the aromatic lilac gardens because some had a great refreshing aroma that was so calming and refreshing. The more we lingered along the variety of species of lilacs the more I realized why many products in the perfume & cosmetics industry use hints of lilac.

There were many times where I was tempted to break a few of the flowers I was photographing and take them home.. but I didn’t, guilt got the best of me.

The outfit I wore was comfortable but the breeze made the weather feel chiller especially the later the day became (the temperature dropped like 20 degrees) and I only wished I had worn something warmer. I went with something casual that emphasized mostly the jacket. I’ve always wanted a jacket with flares towards the hips. I’ve never owned a trench coat before either so when i saw this coat… I knew that baby had to go home with me!

trench: Inc
dress: thrift store gold
shoes: forever 21

November’s just flying by and now its Thanksgiving week. I can recall a time when I was in middle school and believing how slow time went and now I just gasp at how fast I’m going through my calender’s. I was talking to a friend earlier this week about the major time difference between LA and New York City.

My boyfriend and I spend little over a week in the West Coast, going to LA, Catalina Island, Baja California and Mexico (we were on a cruise 😉 lol) But that was my first experience in the West Coast and OH MAN did it feel like a month instead of a week. It just felt a lot longer than what we were used too and I kind of liked the change.

Shirt: bought in a mall during a trip to my home country, El Salvador
