While in Mexico, as a tourist does, we visited quite a few museums. Nestled in between La Reforma and Mahatma Gandhi Street, within Chapultepec Park is the National Museum of Anthropology, or Museo Nacional de Antropología for all my Spanish speakers. This grand location showcases an impressive collection of anthropological and archaeological artifacts from Mexico's pre-Coloumbian heritage. While this location held top-notch salons, art and articfacts, one of the peices that struck me most were the replicas of the pyramids you see behind me here. I sadly did not have an opportunity to visit the real deal over in Teotihuacan a little over an hour away from Mexico City, but envisioning their grandness through the mini replicas I saw took my breath away. One day. 

Now that the history lesson is over, let's chat about this outfit shall we? When packing for Mexico I envisioned a 1960s hipster crowd rocking bell bottoms, well-worn brogues and off-the shoulder silk tops- so I went with it. Luckily, or un-luckily depending on how you look at it, I was the only person dressed like this. Below you can shop some of the exact pieces I rocked above.

  2. Did you visit Templo Mayor museum? It is in down town of the city and it is an amazing archealogical zone. If not, you should not miss it next time you come. Greetings from Mexico!
