Crazy for Cuixmala

BLOUSE, HAT: Zara (Check out Ulla Johnson, Petersyn and Equipment for similar styles)/SHORTS: Nice Martin (sold out, more options from the brand here)/BELT, SANDALS: Maje (sandals are sold out, but Sam Edelman has a similar pair here)

What do remote locations in Mexico, exotic wildlife and Vogue all have in common? Cuixmala (my dream birthday destination this year)!

Not only has it been featured in Vogue (twice), most recently in the May 2018 issue (and many other notable publications), but it’s been a property – hotel – I’ve been dreaming of visiting ever since!

Mérida, Mérida!

(scroll down to the end of the post for outfit details!)

Let’s jump right in, shall we?

Q: Where’s Mérida located?

Mérida is the vibrant capital of the Mexican state of Yucatan. It’s rich in history and colonial heritage and has year-round sunshine. It’s a three-hour drive west from Cancun, is charming and authentic, with a growing artistic bohemian community. There you’ll find streets lined with huge, colonial villas. Colorful buildings with ornate, wrought-iron railings, big windows and grand doorways!

Q: How did you hear about this city?

Don’t laugh but…

The Pink Hotel

TOP (here too), PANTS (here too): Red Carter/SCARF: vintage Saint Laurent via eBay/SANDALS: Express/BAG: Cult Gaia/EARRINGS: Oscar de la Renta

This morning’s visit to Rosas y Xocolate (the famed Pink Hotel in Mérida) was so fun – a must-see if you’re in the city. The food was delicious (so much that we’ll most likely come back for dinner!) and the service was outstanding. Our waiter let us talk for hours while we sipped on coffee and laughed at funny stories about ex-boyfriends and bad dates. It was a great change of pace considering we’ve been nonstop the entire time here!
