Tapping into the 70s style renaissance with one of my favorite brands; Zara and Banana Republic. I don’t usually wear black (which to some people is odd). But the moment I saw this top I knew this one’s coming home with me. The top has intricate lace detailing on the sleeves which makes it completely versatile. That’s the best clothing characteristic one can ask for. I paired it with these banana republic red culottes, and you’ve got the perfect, comfortable combination to take in the beautiful sites of Ybor city.
Ybor city is the historical Latin quarter and former center of cigar manufacturing. There are two faces to it, a creamy Panama for daytime lunching, shopping, cigar smoking and coffee sipping, and a black fedora for the high-spirited playground it becomes at night. While you’re there you must try the Columbia restaurant which is the oldest and largest Spanish restaurant in America. The architecture of this place is beautiful.
