Alviso Adventures

I’ve been absent from the blogging universe for quite sometime now, (approximately 6 months) but I’m excited to finally update my creative platform after what seems like an eternity. Although I’m on summer vacation, my internship has taken a lot out of my day. I’ve come to realize, however, that I really need to make time for things I love doing (blogging, styling outfits, biking, and running) even if these activities are time consuming.

Being back home has been nothing short of amazing. I’ve been on a couple of adventures with old friends, one of which includes my first time exploring Alviso, CA. Alviso is one of the oldest towns in Santa Clara County.

As you enter the town towards the infamous Alviso Marina Park (check out #Alvisomarina on Instagram for pictures) you’re greeted by olden day houses and the once busy, but now abandoned, Bayside Cannery.

Staying comfy and warm was one of my main objectives when picking out an outfit for our biking endeavor. I opted for my black jogger pants from Cotton On, an Aritzia tank top, and a varsity jacket from Urban Outfitters. My black joggers are my favorite go to pant. The only downside is the quality. I’m a few washes a way from creating a hole in these pants.

For shoes, I slipped into my new Nike Internationalists. You’ll definitely see me rewear these comfy shoes in future blog posts. They are incredibly comfortable and way easier to put on then my Vans Sk8-Hi shoes. These shoes are the perfect mix between Van’s high tops and New Balance sneakers. The small bit of height these shoes give you is a huge plus (especially for someone 5’1 like me).

I’ll definitely be back to explore more of Alviso and hopefully bike the entire trail to Downtown San Jose.
