It’s funny that I’ve lived in the bay area for years now but it seems like I’ve explored so little. There have been several landmarks on my list to visit, and this past weekend I was finally able to cross off one – The San Jose Rose Garden. This place is absolutely breathtaking especially right now since the flowers are in bloom. Every corner you turn is a surprise filled with radiant beautiful colors. The feeling I get here is utter happiness which somehow makes me think of my mom. Roses are her favorite flowers. She always fusses when we buy her roses for Mother’s Day because she thinks it is a waste of money, but her eyes and smile can’t hide the fact that they make her happy.

Keeping it chic and casual, I’m wearing a pair of cobalt blue shorts, soft white blouse, my trusty white heels and a super cute chartreuse satchel. Besides my skater dress, I own very few yellow pieces so this bag is definitely a standout in my wardrobe right now.

I promised Luis I would smile more often, and here it is. =D

Luis and I were playing hide and seek in the garden. We are forever kids at heart.
