My grandfather is from Mexico City and I’ve always dreamt of finally visiting and being in touch with my father’s culture. This is a large city with so much history and of course, so many people! I have never walked so much in my entire life. Flat leather sandals were my best friend this trip. Traveling a city by foot is truly special. I stopped at just about every candy colored wall and snacked at just about every single taco stand when I had the chance. My tastebuds were going wild for everything sweet and spicy. A friend did recommend taking a quick break for a cool drink at Hotel Condesa DF. This adorable boutique hotel felt a lot more like a sunny hot spot off Sunset Blvd in Hollywood more than anywhere else. Think teal green walls and cow-printed seats. My love for spaces and architecture and interior design is growing the more I travel. I’m currently craving the hotel’s green lush covered walls complete with a beautiful sun roof. A girl can dream. La Condesa is one of the most fashionable and beautiful neighborhoods of the city. I went with dramatically bold colors and silhouettes. Even with the heat, it’s possible. Voluminous sleeves and a skirt with loads of movement is always the way to go. I think Mexico City doesn’t get the credit it deserves. It’s history and culture and love for food and music transcends so many places I’ve been to.
