Casual Weekends

The best part of being in public relations is to get to meet amazing-talented people. Although it might seem hard to find true friends in this chaotic industry, once you meet those people you click with, you never let them go. This shoot was a couple of weeks ago with my amazing-talented friends I was talking about. Thanks to Patty Castañeda, blogger of Golden Sparks, for being my tutorial model of the month as well as the fabulous photographer Natalia Feliú for capturing these moments!
I always talk about my job but honestly, nobody understands it. Wanna know more about my life as a PR in Mexico City? Check out my interview for Lovin’ South Texas —> http://lovinsouthtx.com/young-professional-sara-castillo/
I’m always happy to share my experience as a young professional in the fashion field so one day I can help those who are building their paths. 
Love,
S

La mejor parte de estar en relaciones públicas es la gente tan increíblemente talentosa que llegas a conocer. Aunque parece difícil encontrar amigos verdaderos en esta industria caótica, una vez que conoces a las personas con las que haces click, jamas las dejas ir. Estas fotos fueron tomadas hace algunas semanas con mis increíblemente talentosas amigas de las que hablaba hace rato. Gracias Patty Castañeda, blogger de Golden Sparks, por ser mi modelo de tutorial del mes, así como a la fabulosa fotógrafa Natalia Feliú por capturar estos momentos!

In honor of Valentine’s Day which is around the corner, I wanted to write this post. Even though my Valentine’s is a couple miles away from me right now, it doesn’t mean I have to stay home in PJ’s, drinking wine and watching Netflix… well, that sound like a great plan BUT it is also a day to celebrate friendships.  
As I mentioned a blog before, after-college life is when you start meeting people of your own – those who understand how bad you need a glass of wine at 3pm, those who laugh with you even though they don’t get the joke (language barriers,) tell you what shoes to wear with an outfit you thought you would never try, those who would tell you how crappy you look and glam you up in the moment and most importantly, those who are there to listen to your struggles because they might be going through the same. Joel, from Moorehisstyle.com is definitely one of those friends… can’t you tell? I feel so blessed to have people like him in my life and I have a feeling these friendships are going on forever.

To all my fashionable-new-life-lasting friends: I LOVE YOU & Happy Valentine’s Day!

Love,
S

Piperlime & Moments of Chic

I’m so happy to announce my first collaboration with Piperlime – Moments of Chic!
Living in a city like New York is always about being comfortable yet making a statement. Yes, it is the tricky challenge of everyday.
No matter how glamorous or extravagant your life is, you have to make your #ootd comfy for the streets. Trust me, is never as glamorous as it seems. Lucky for me, Piperlime  gave me the perfect outfit for me. I was excited when I got my package, not only because pastels are my favorite colors, but this blush midi skirt is right on time for the season. Enough of skinny jeans for a while – There’s always a way to make that summer-fall transition appropriate in a blush skirt. 
In this case, for a Sunday morning walking around South Street Seaport, I wore my Piperlime long sleeve top and midi skirt accessorized with my studded silver necklace, camel booties and my favorite black fedora hat to give what I call a bohemian-girly-girl vibe.
As the Moments of Chic phrase would say, is all about making every day and every occasion a moment of chicness, a moment to remember – and since I couldn’t agree more, I am very excited to be part of such a beautiful collaboration.
Thank you Piperlime for making me part of your #momentsofchic and for the fabulous outfit! How do you dress for a moment of chic?
Love,

And I’m back! As they say: better late than never. There is no excuse not to write a weekly blog post yet when your vision is to create something good and entertaining to the reader, you rather take time to make it happen and bring something not good but amazing. 
For today’s post, my friends took me to Santa Ana Wildlife Refuge. I heard of it before but never thought it would be a habitat so big and so close to home. Beautiful yet scary to see nature in action; Santa Ana is a place to go hiking, take your family for a picnic or even just go and walk around to disconnect from the world. Sometimes it is good to take a break from everything and everyone.
The fact that I’ve been living here for a couple of year made me think I already knew the Rio Grande Valley but then I realize there’s always something new to see.
Love,
S

A small town girl always needs to take a break – even though that means driving 4 hours to a bigger town like Austin, TX. My weekend there consisted of day-to-night concerts, frozen drinks, lots of walking, floppy hats, leather booties, denim shorts, and amazing food… otherwise known as SXSW.

South by Southwest is a music, film and interactive festival that happens once a year where people from all over the world come together to celebrate and take advantage of the amazing events happening around downtown Austin. Yes, I needed to take a break and sure I did. The best part of it? The careless/casual street style fashion with a mix of bohemian, grunge and rock and roll. Music definitely brings people together.

What was your favorite part of Spring Break?

Love,
S
