Worth a shot

By dusanabotswana On March 21st, 2011

Hello and welcome to my blog!! First, thanks for stopping by! I’ve kept a private blog for friends and family before, but this is my first attempt at blogging publicly. I’m hoping that keeping a public blog will motivate me to post more often so that I can share my experiences in Mexico (or the last few months at least) with more people and also have a sort of diary from this last bit of time here.

And, since much of the US seems ridiculously cold right now (and I’m secretly jealous of all the adorable winter outfits other bloggers are posting right now) I thought I’d gloat about the fact that it’s WARM here in Mexico City in the afternoons. And I mean shorts weather, as you can see : ).

I definitely got a lot of funny looks while posing on this stump but I loved the sun shining through the trees here. For my look: I originally wanted to try out the sandal-sock combo I’m lovin’ on the blogs lately, but couldn’t find mine and well, it was plenty warm just like this!


Outfit Details: embroidered and woven top: handmade in Oaxaca (in my shop here); shorts: secondhand Lucky jeans unexpectedly made into cut-off by friend’s little sister; wedges: Zara winter sales ($12); purse: thrifted Borgo Giovanni ($1 tag sale!); jacket: secondhand H&M via Ebay ($15), bracelet: hand beaded in Zacatecas, Mexico.

These pictures are from Parque Chapultepec in Mexico City, one of my very favorite places in the city. According to Wikipedia, Chapultepec Park is the biggest park in all of Latin America at 686 hectares (1,695.14 acres). It’s hard to believe it’s so big, but maybe it’s true; there are entire sections I’ve just discovered on recent past visits, which makes me excited to keep exploring it.

No better way to enjoy a beautiful day than bike around this park (one of our favorite weekend activities). Speaking of which, better get out and enjoy my day off for a few hours before it gets dark! Happy Día de la Constitución!

Thanks for stopping by,

    beautiful pics, chica. I like how you put the clothing items that you wear underneath each picture w/the prices. Looks like a Express seasonal catalog. Good luck w/the shop!!

    haha thx! I put the prices to show that I try to be frugal. Maybe I should specify that.
