I invited Yesenia to have coffee with me on an early Sunday morning. I had been dying to visit Trouble Coffee’s new location in Oakland, so we ventured out to have breakfast in the white and bright space. I’m a sucker for natural lighting and Trouble exceeded my expectations. The space is so beautifully minimal, yet inviting and cozy. I had heard good things about their cinnamon toast so I decided to order it to accompany my iced chai. We also ordered a coconut to share – and my was it delicious!
Hi everybody! My name is Victor and I’m a fashion writer and social media specialist. I was so excited when Yesenia asked me to be a guest blogger on Mexicana Americana. I can’t wait to tell you a bit more about a day we recently spent together.
While enjoying our refreshing treat, Yesenia and I chatted a bit about our goals and dreams. I love talking to Yesenia about these sorts of things because we’re both really ambitious for our age, and I love being able to get our thoughts and plans organized. Yesenia and I have very different career goals, but we give each other ideas as to what should be our next step. It’s great to have a supportive friendship with someone – it really inspires you to keep on working to achieve your ultimate goals.
Yesenia and I also love chatting about the fashion industry. Whether it’s about fashion news or maybe a new exhibit that’s coming to town, we always keep each other updated. This time around we talked a bit about the news of Alexander Wang leaving Balenciaga. We each threw out ideas as to who we think will replace him. I can’t wait to see if one of us was right!
Yesenia wanted me to share a bit about my style with all of you. My style is constantly changing to adapt to my daily life. Right now it’s super relaxed because my work office is pretty casual. I tend to opt for comfortable fabrics and fits that I can wear all day long without feeling stuffy. I’m going to be honest, I did dress specifically for the coffee shop we were visiting. I wanted to keep my look a bit more minimal but I didn’t want to blend in too much. I thought my blue jeans and plaid shirt would be a good pop against the white space. I’m a total aesthete so keeping everything cohesive is always a must for me!
