Mexico

It’s incredible to me that it has already been a full year since Fred and I went to Mexico to celebrate the marriage of two longtime friends of ours. On a recent flight, bored amid a lack of wifi, I unearthed some unused shots on my phone from our final day there. So, consider this a “throwback Thursday” post, if you will.

Mexico Vacation

A trip to Central Mexico is the perfect time to wear colorful, patterned and vintage pieces. In the springtime the weather will be warm but temperate during the day and chilly at night, so bring a mix of warm and cool weather items. Bright red and pink lipsticks and wide-brimmed hats make the perfect accessories. Silver bracelets make a good touch too — but you might want to buy them there!

Read on for my packing list and photos of what I wore.

When the Mexico trip to celebrate Oscar and Andrew’s wedding was still a few weeks away, we got an email from them with plans for the week. On one day it said “Fiesta at the Hacienda! Mariachis, tequila burro, etc.”

Tequila burro?

Obviously I had no idea what amazingness was in store for us. Come see!

Our final daytrip in Mexico was one of the loveliest we had all week: nearly a full day at the Cuna de Tierra winery followed by a few hours strolling the streets of colonial Dolores Hidalgo, a town of much historical importance for the Mexican Revolution.

The winery is certainly a gem of the state of Guanajuato. I had only been to a few laid-back wineries in Fredericksburg, Texas and expected something similar. I was so unprepared for how lovely this winery makes the experience for its guests!

The huge city of Guanajuato, the rural town of Trancas we stayed in and the colonial city of San Miguel de Allende are all so vastly different from each other that it’s hard to fathom that they all exist within the same Mexican state of Guanajuato. It really goes to show how many kinds of experiences Central Mexico has to offer, all within an hour’s drive from where we stayed.

Read on for our experiences in the bright and colorful city of Guanajuato.

Relaxing all day at our gorgeous hacienda was certainly lovely, but my favorite part of our Mexico vacation was all the day trips we took. When I travel I want to see everything there is to see and experience all the things.

And out of all our trips, the one to San Miguel de Allende was my favorite. The colonial beauty of this town with its architecture stuck in time really made its way into my heart.

Fred and I just got back from a full week in Mexico, experiencing what was arguably the fanciest, most relaxing vacation of my adult life. Usually on trips we’re in a big city, going all over the place and seeing all the things, so it was about time that we took it a little easy.

We still took a few daytrips while we were there, but the hacienda that we stayed at is easily the star of this trip. Read on for how amazing this place was!
