Anyone else love ethnic food spots?? I'm always on the hunt for a good place that doesn't require me traveling to a tropical island (although I'd much prefer that). Unfortunately at 30 weeks pregnant you can't do much of anything anymore, including flying, so we took to our neighborhoods to find some great eats and we weren't left disappointed!

Not going to lie, I'm finding it hard to fit into most of my clothes lately and will probably be resorting exclusively to dresses in the next few weeks, but this entire outfit is non-maternity and was still so comfortable! Which means it's also the perfect go-to when you want to binge eat and drink...and not need to unbutton your jeans! I've linked the look below!
BGBGeneration Black/White Utility Shorts - These might be the world's most versatile shorts! I'm wearing a size XS and was easily able to fold them down for comfort, but you can also wear them as a hi-waisted option and they are so cute. They are sold out virtually EVERYWHERE (that's saying something) but I finally found them HERE and for half off!
Forever 21 Knit Off the Shoulder Top - Unfortunately this one is sold out...I'll keep trying to find it because its so lightweight and comfortable (also has a really cute open back). But I'm linking a few other similar styles. Here is one style I LOVE and under $20! And another....this one is so Boho Chic and only $15.99!
Shoes - Obviously my Sole Society GO-TO heels for the summer...being comfortable is such a struggle and I'm always linking these because my feet never hurt and I also don't feel like I'm going to lose my balance carrying around this basketball!
Handbag - Ah I just LOVE this bag and totally forgot I had it...its amazing what cleaning out your closet can do. I got this gem in Athens, Greece on our honeymoon so unfortunately I cannot link it, but I totally love it. In honor of the beloved Kate Spade - here is a great similar option.
Now let's talk about the FOOD!
We found a really great Puerto Rican spot - Sofrito!
What we ordered:
Empanadas - We chose one chicken and one beef..both were DELICIOUS and the dough was so flaky and good. You can tell it is made from scratch and it reminded me of the ones we got on the street in Puerto Rico last time we visited!
Paella - I am a sucker for a good Paella and the Sofrito Paella didn't disappoint. It had LOBSTER, CHICKEN, CHORIZO, CLAMS, MUSSELS, CALAMARI, SHRIMPS AND SAFFRON RICE and we split it because it was huge!
Tres Leches - Oh. My. God. This was SOOOO SOOOO good. It was a perfect balance of the light cake and whipped topping paired with that creamy, delicious cinnamon infused milk. You just need to go try it. Period.
And to top it all off, they have some amazing cocktails....at least from what I could see! They were sweet enough to play along and make me a Virgin Strawberry Mojito but it was actually really delicious and I would totally order again. Mojitos are my favorite drink of the summer!
Thanks Sofrito for another great night out in Westchester!
And thank YOU for stopping by!
