La Ventana

The window.

Nothing beats getting some fresh air and dining casually on a patio. While I can’t wait for summer, I’m thoroughly enjoying the warm, yet breezy temps in Dallas right now. 
Finding good Mexican food has been a struggle for Steven and I since we moved here. Before you Dallasites get crazy, hear me out. We’re used to a different kind of Mexican food. And when you’re from Southern California, born and raised, good street tacos become a sort of comfort food. I mean, Taco Tuesday is practically a state holiday for crying out loud. So finding delicious, no-frills-no-fuss tacos was a challenge – well, other than Fuel City (yes, we’re talking gas station tacos here).
La Ventana has that Southern California laid-back vibe that almost makes you feel like you just stepped into Mexico for a quick bite to eat. I love that – a getaway within a city.

Happy Friday!

    I'm loving this skirt. The print is so cool and bright! The crips white blouse you added was a perfect touch.
