{Sister Style}: Club Interamericano de Mujeres

My boyfriend and I decided at the last minute that it would be great to spend the weekend at the beach, so I decided to wear this beachy casual outfit to work. I always feel great in this maxi dress, it makes me feel SO tall!

Today we received this lovely painting as a surprise from the Club Interamericano de Mujeres (The American Women's Club). My Aunt Luisa was the founder of the club back in the day, so they gave us this painting to commemorate all of her great accomplishments.

As if that weren't enough, this painting was actually made by my Aunt Vicki who donated it to the Club many years ago. We felt so honoured to receive this beautiful family heirloom!

After work, my boyfriend, his family, and I all went up to Bijao beach for the weekend. We finished the night off with a delicious Italian dinner and wine. It was such a great day!

  11. Aawww, you think so?!? Thank you so much!! My biggest recommendation would be to take pictures with natural lighting (meaning light from the sun and not light from light bulbs and such). It really makes photos show more true colors and glowy skin. Hope that helps!
