Cinco de Mayo

May 5, 2015

Today Mexicans celebrate the anniversary of the battle of Puebla and in my house my boyfriend and I celebrate our 5th year together. You better believe we will be celebrating both ocassions around town, eating some tacos al Pastor and maybe later in the week we'll stop by a couple wineries.
Yesterday, for our Monday brunch tradition, I decided to wear not quite a Mexican top, but a Honduran one (also seen here). However, it has a similar type of embroidery as the popular Mexican kaftans. I wore my red mini-skirt (also worn here) and simple sandals in order to add an urban touch and, last but not least, I decorated my left arm with a stack of vintage lucite bangles. I know that I've worn them a lot in this blog lately--but I really can't get enough of them.

Hoy los mexicanos celebran el aniversario de la batalla de Puebla y en mi casa mi novio y yo celebramos nuestro quinto año juntos. Créanme que estaremos celebrando ambas ocasiones por la ciudad, comiendo un poco de tacos al pastor y tal vez más adelante en la semana vamos a pasar por un par de viñeros.
Ayer, para nuestro desayuno tradicional de los Lunes,  envés de ponerme un atuendo mexicano, me decidí poner uno Hondureño. Sin embargo, tiene un bordado similar a los que le hacen a los caftanes Mexicanos. Me puse mi mini-falda de cuero rojo y sandalias simples con el fin de añadir a este conjunto un toque urbano y, por último pero no menos importante, decoré mi brazo izquierdo con una pila de brazaletes vintage de lucite. Sé que últimamente me los he puesto mucho - la verdad es que todavía no me aburro de ellos.

  1. Happy Anniversary to you both! I love your playful embroidered top with the matching bangles, Carelia! xxx

  2. You look beautiful and happy. You always come up with original and joyful looks - I enjoy seeing them come across my feed. Thanks for the fun style inspiration. Two observations (intended to be complimentary) - your face and bone structure are so lovely, it would be great to see you with your hair pulled back more frequently. Also, you have great stems, maybe fewer boyfriend jeans and rock more fabulous skirts/leggings :) Happy anniversary!

    1. Thanks so much for compliment and wishes! As the weather turns warmer I'll be wearing more of skirts and shorts and btw, my boyfriend agreed with you about the hair. He loves to see me with my hair pulled back.
