Exploring Colorful Chiapas
Chiapas, Mexico

Hello from beautiful Mexico!  I am so honored to be here shooting with the New York Times in collaboration with Visit Mexico.  After flying into Mexico City on Monday night, we took a smaller plane a few hours away to a town called Chiapas.  The town is soooo charming and authentic – every house is painted a different color and the local people have been nothing but welcoming.  We’ve had a packed itinerary so far and I’ve been able to explore the Zincatan community and Templo de Santo Domingo which dates back to the 1600s.  One of my favorite parts of the trip was being able to go inside a local woman’s home and watch her hand embroider intricate textiles for pillows and tunics.  I couldn’t leave without picking up a colorful tunic for myself!  The hotel we’re staying at is super modern and new, but has a rustic and bohemian vibe (which I looove.)  A ton of you were messaging me about it on Instagram – FYI it’s called Hotel Bo.  I wore this colorful Spell & The Gypsy dress (they make the prettiest dresses) and this wide brimmed straw Janessa Leone hat that I picked up right before my trip.  My Mansur Gavriel bucket bag has been the best travel companion.  I’ve been able to fit my humongous camera and all of my necessities in there.  This is the camera I shoot with – I can’t recommend it enough!
