Hello darlings, Mildred here! Did you miss me?
If you’re new to the blog, allow me to re-introduce myself! I’m Krystle’s #RetroAlterEgo and ice cream companion! I am to Krystle as Sasha Fierce is to Beyoncé. I pop into town quite often to visit and whenever she takes a trip I’m sure to accompany her to get some sweet treat! It’s a tradition of ours to get ice cream every time we go on vacation and her recent trip to Panama was no exception.Read More
It's been a month since I travelled to Panama City, Panama and I'm still thinking about the fun and relaxing time we had there. As usual, after I visit a new country I like to share a bit about my trip with you in case you consider visiting. I wrote about my trip to Aruba here as well as Cartgena, Colombia here and here but today, I'm extremely excited to share my experience of Panama City with you not only through photos but via video as well!Read More
Can you believe It took me over a year to finally wear this swimsuit?!! I got it for my Cartagena trip but the day I planned to wear this white crochet beauty, mother nature had other plans for me so back into the suitcase it went.
Now I know you're wondering why I never wore it to the beach back in NYC but I have a very good reason!

A few weeks have passed since my Aruba trip and it's now starting to heat up in NYC! When we got back from Aruba, we were welcomed by hot summer-like weather which made me very happy. It felt as though I had brought the good weather back with me, however, a day later NYC reminded me of who she was. It got chilly again!
Yes folks, my space heater, furry bedroom slippers and coat were in full effect again and I was bummed. Now, a couple weeks later, we're starting to feel the heat and all I can do is think about the sun, sand and all the fun Mildred had getting ice-cream.Read More
Two weeks ago, Stef whisked me away to Aruba to celebrate my 30th birthday, tropical-style! Yes, #KrystlesVintageThirty was in January but we're celebrating all year long (Beyonce diva-style) and it was time for #KrystlesTropicalThirty!
If you can't tell by now, I LOVE Flamingos! F to the L to the A to the... okay we might be here for a while if I continue. Seriously guys these beautiful pink birds have a special place in my heart, yet I'd never seen them in person until now!
I've linked to some cute Flamingo beach wear so continue reading to get your Flamingo Friday on!Read More
It's been about two weeks since my trip to Aruba and I'm currently sitting in the restaurant of a super cold Upstate NY hotel writing this post and day-dreaming of sunshine, beaches and flamingos! I met my darling pink babies in person for the first time but before I start gushing about them (I'll do that in a separate post) let's stay on track with the happy island.

While traveling back from Cartagena, we stopped in Miami for a couple of nights because there was a terrible snow storm in NYC. I checked the weather for this weekend and it's suppose to snow (insert crying emoji face). I'm not sure if the snow will turn into rain this weekend but it was very cold all week to the point where we had to whip out our puffy coats and boots again. It's April and all I can say is "Winter to be gone!" I'm ready for sunshine, crisp air and fragrant flowers.
If you're feeling the chill and want to warm up, reminisce with me and take a stroll with Mildred along South Beach wearing some of her wardrobe essentials. I've linked to a few options for you because they're not your typical "essentials" lineup ;)Read More
It's been three months since my Cartagena vacation but I'm still reminiscing about those beautiful sunny days strolling through the city. I wrote about my trip in two parts (1 & 2) , covering many of our activities as well as the delicious food we ate. Today, you're in for a treat because I'm sharing a vintage meets modern look, how you can re-create this look and images of a very sweet gelato shop we visited.

While on our vacation in Cartagena, we took a day trip to the beautiful Islas del Rosario. The boat ride to the islands was about 35 mins and we even saw Dolphins out in the water. When we arrived to the islands, the view was breath-taking and I had to take a moment to thank God for creating such beauty. Today I'm sharing photos from our trip to the islands along with a red retro-inspired swimsuit I'm obsessed with!Read More
