Cartagena Travel Guide

Cartagena is … dreamy.  It’s one of those few places where just about anyone can find something to love. Whether you’re a foodie, history buff (designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site), partier, avid shopper or sun worshipper, this city covers all the bases. Bugsy and I had been talking about traveling to Colombia for years, but like…

Cartagena Outfit Diary: Day 4 – Black Crop Top, Gray Wrap Skirt, Nude Pink Bikini, Panama Hat and Mirrored Sunglasses

After a long (and painfully hot) day of sightseeing the day before, we were ready for  some beach time and were off to another private island in the Islas del Rosario (Rosario Islands) on our fourth day in Cartagena.

Cartagena Outfit Diary: Day 1 – Black Scoop Back Tank, Khaki Pleated Shorts and Layered Statement Necklace

I absolutely love, love, love to travel, but like most, hate the airport lines and flying part of the process, especially because it’s near impossible to be comfy and practical, but still cute. For our travel day to Cartagena, I wore something simple and comfortable for the plane ride, a black scoop back tank and khaki pleated shorts that…
