Happy Friday! If you’ve been wondering where to take your next spring/summer getaway – book a ticket to San Miguel de Allende. You will not regret it. I wasn’t familiar with the city at all until this trip with The New York Times, and I am so grateful to have been introduced to this special place. If I had to compare it to a city or town that I’ve been to – I would say it feels like the town of St. Barths or St. Tropez. With a relaxed village vibe, unique markets and luxe hotels this is a great place for any traveler – of any age. The hotel we stayed at was called Hotel Matilda which was gorgeous and super modern. We dined at the dreamy Rosewood hotel which has a wrap around terrace overlooking the entire city. My favorite spot was Doce 18 Concept House (you may remember me freaking out about it on instastory!) It’s a stunning space that has a hotel, shops, restaurants, boutiques, and a florist all under one roof. I literally want my entire house to look like the rooms there. After we had lunch at Doce 18 we wandered to the local market a few blocks away which had vendors offering all sorts of authentic things; hand painted pottery, beaded jewelry, fresh cacti, corn on the cob, fruit, flowers, pewter dishes, and embroidered textiles. I loved picking out two embroidered pieces that I’m going to have framed for my new home. Speaking of home – a few of you have been messaging me about the white trays that I put my perfume on – FYI you can get them here. Have a great weekend!
One of my favorite online shopping destinations; Net-A-Porter is having a secret sale and offering all US customers 10% off their entire site with code SPRING! Net-A-Porter always has the most dreamy, lust worthy clothes, shoes, handbags, and accessories. Not to mention, they never miss a beat when it comes to carrying the latest/greatest beauty products and supplements. Here are a few of my must have items as well as pieces that are on my wish list… This navy off the shoulder dress is perfect for warm spring days, this stripe shirtdress would be great to wear to the office with a blazer or trench, and I couldn’t resist ordering this dress for my trip to Antigua next week. This is the dress I wore in my instastory yesterday (it’s so soft and easy!) paired with these sandals. These are the most comfortable heels I own – I can literally wear them all day long. I’ve talked about my love for these sunnies before – and with the 10% off they are a screaming deal! These Chanel coffee table books would look so pretty on any desk and this tote is ideal for an upcoming spring getaway. You can’t go wrong with a neutral clutch like this (for weddings and cocktail parties!) and this is my favorite bucket bag.
Happy Monday! I’m excited to share photos from Day 3 of my trip to Mexico with The New York Times. We started our morning at the cutest coffee shop; Carajillo Cafe, which reminded me of a cafe you would easily find in the West Village or Nolita. The turquoise blue tile floors, high ceilings with exposed beams, and colorful artwork lining the walls made me feel right at home. Each table had fresh bunches of flowers and their breakfast was absolutely delish. I tried mole + eggs for the first time and ordered a matcha latte. The rest of our crew got espressos which I had a sip of too – so good! Overall, San Cristobal de las Casas exceeded my expectations. The town was the perfect mix of old and new – with colorful homes and storefronts lining cobblestone streets. I loved how you could always find a juice shop and fresh produce spilling out of old Fords on the side of the road. I layered this easy white button down over my new favorite dress for spring from Saylor. A few of you were asking where the blue + white dress I wore on my instastory was from and it’s also from Saylor. FYI it runs true to size and you can buy it here!
TGIF! Here are a few things I’m loving this week! I’m really starting to feel at home here in Venice and discovering new places everyday. It’s been so fun sharing life updates with you guys through my instastories – more to come! Have a wonderful weekend. xx
