White Oaxaca.

ALLWHITECOVER

Finally sharing my photos from Oaxaca! Seems so long since I was there, but happy I’m sorta catching up with my photos.

We visited Oaxaca, México last December for the first time and I immediately fell in love. It has so much charm that it was hard not to comeback to visit soon. From the colorful pebbled streets to the beautiful ornate churches and the most amazing food you can ever taste, Oaxaca has definitely become my go-to destination! It’s beauty and culture definitely make it easy for me to love and appreciate my Mexican heritage.

This second time around, we decided to invite our close friends, Amber + Baxter, to join us. We contacted our dear friend and “Oaxaca King”, Omarsito, to help plan our trip. He put together the most fun and adventurous itinerary for us and helped score us brownie points with Amber and Baxter… they were pretty impressed with the itinerary! Yay!

We stayed at this super darling B&B, El Secreto, which is centrally located and walking distance from cool bars, restaurants, shops and the main cathedral. For Day 1 of our trip, we had breakfast at our B&B and headed off to Monte Alban to see the ruins. We spent most of our morning at the archaeological site exploring and taking photos.

We then headed to CASA to check out the art center and recycled paper factory. There were these beautiful jewelry pieces made out of paper (see below in cream sweater + navy blue necklace) and I couldn’t help but try on almost every single piece with admiration. For lunch, we ate at this very home-y place called La Biznaga. We enjoyed yummy micheladas and homemade tlayudas (aka mexican pizza). We stopped by downtown to enjoy ice cream and people watch! Best combo!

We wrapped up our busy, but fun, day back at our B&B for snacks and to freshen up before we headed to dinner. Seriously, the best thing about Oaxaca is the food, so I was happy that we had plans to eat all day long!

Here’s a a small glimpse of what my first day in Oaxaca consisted of! Enjoy!

VIVAcoverSharing one of my favorite looks from Florence! We spent our last day roaming all of Firenze, literally walking every block, alley way and corner. We felt like true Italians.

It was really nice to experience Florence not having any set plans and being able to just wander off. Not knowing where each corner would lead to, we stumbled into a couple of cool stores that carried awesome selections of clothing + accessories. I scored these adorable Marni jeweled sandals on sale! Yes! (love when that happens!)

One of the highlights of this day was visiting the perfumery, Santa Maria Novella. I highly recommend checking out this store if you’re visiting Florence. It was probably one of the prettiest shops I have ever visited… the elaborate ceiling and wall details in each room were just too pretty, the products they carried from perfumes to body care to oral hygiene were all unique, and each room felt like a museum. I bought my mom a night cream- she said it works wonders!

We also visited the Mercato Centrale! I love mercatos; something about walking the narrow aisles of food, fruit, and meats is so fun. There’s always so much to look at and different things to try, that it becomes a nice experience to remember.

This outfit was not only comfy, but it’s composed of basic pieces everyone has in their wardrobe- striped tee, utilitarian jacket and denim cut offs. Makes for easy packing because you can mix & match!

Wrapping up my photos from Florence so stay tuned! xx
