Charming San Miguel de Allende

San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

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!
