This is my last post from my trip to Mexico. Though the plan for the trip was to relax as much as possible and spend every day at the beach, I could not visit Cancun without visiting the gorgeous archeological sight Chichen Itza some couple of hours away from Cancun. It was the most important capital city of the Maya and still is the sacred center for them. I read and learned a lot about the Maya and Chichen Itza in University while learning Spanish, and could not miss the opportunity to see it with my own eyes. It is absolutely gorgeous and must be visited. You will learn some extremely interesting facts about this intriguing culture. We did not go with the prepackaged tourist groups. I don't like to be on other people's schedule and hate crowds, especially when I am hot. So instead, we rented a car and organized a tour of our own. We arrived there before most of the crowds and stayed as long or as short as we wanted. It's more fun to explore on your own and ended up being quite cheaper as well.
We also visited a huge well nearby where you can also take a swim in it's really cold water. It's actually very refreshing after the hot jungle weather in Chichen Itza. Below are some pictures of the well but they don't do it justice.
After we cooled off, we headed to a charming town of Valladolid. Again, I read about it back in my University days and was beyond happy to be able to visit it in person as well. Valladolid is one of the oldest colonial cities. It is really pretty but the time and lack of maintenance have taken it's toll. I loved its people. They would smile at you genuinely as you walked by. There were many old women, very tiny in statue, wearing their traditional dresses, as you see on this beautiful girl below. I thought them to be gorgeous! I left with a lot of beautiful memories and feeling beyond satisfied.
I loved my brief visit to Mexico and the sincere politeness and kindness of people. My dream would be to visit the whole country with someone who is familiar with it. Maybe one day. This will have to do for now. Generally, I would love to visit all of the Spanish speaking countries, and can't really define why draws me to them but they are on top of my travel list. Love being able to practice my Spanish too so I don't forget it.
I chose a very light outfit for this day. I knew I was going to walk a ot so I wore again my wedges from Aldo. I just love the orange colour. I find that it makes a regular wedge more fun. Denim shorts again are my choise for hot weather because I find that they don't ride up when you walk a lot. And they just always look cool, heheeh. I wore another cotton corpped top to stay cool. Hat and sunglasses are of couse a must to protect from the scorching sun. I added some colour with my bright all-purpose embroidered bag and some jewellery.  Happy long weekend to all of you who are lucky enough to have it! Ciao!

High Waist Ethnic Print Shorts & Cropped Top

Shorts and cropped top Forever 21, wedges Aldo, sunglasses and bracelets unknown

Day three of my outfits I wore on vacation. Did I mention it was really hot? With the sea water and the heat, my hair tends to go little crazy at times. Sometimes it gets so curly that the curls almost start resembling dreads. Other times it just gets crazy frizzy. The day these pictures were shot it was on the crazy frizzy side so I put it in a messy side braid. I don’t like to spend much time on my outfits and hair while on vacation. I don’t like to be fussy. So I just take what nature gave me, polish it up a bit and go with that. Outfits are also very simple but bright, usually. I also wear a few pieces of bright jewellery and I’m done.  Today I am sporting I guess you could say world traveller or ethnic print high waist shorts and a cropped top. Wedges are also a must for me when it comes to travelling to ocean front cities. What are your "must do's" when it comes to travelling? Ciao!

Treci outfit sa mog odmora. Da li sam napomenula slucajno da je bilo jako vruce? A u kombinaciji morske vode I toplote, moja kosa obicno malo poludi. Po nekad se toliko ukovrdza da izgleda kao dreadlocks. A po nekad je samo neuredna I rasprstena na sve strane. Na dan kada sam slikala ove slike, bila je naravno vrlo neuredna pa sam morala da je svezem u opustenu pletenicu. Dok sam na odmoru ne volim da provodim previse vremena u spremanju, sredjivanju kose niti da nosim komplikovane outfite. S kosom se borim zavisno od onoga kakva je tog dana, ali uglavnom prihvatam ono sto mi je priroda dala I to malo doteram u red. Outfiti su uglavnom veselih boja. Nakit je minimalan ali uglavnom takodje veselih boja, I to je to. Danas nosim sorc visokog struka u etno printu i kratku majicu. Oboje iz Forever 21. Kako vam se cini? Cao!

Short Shorts & Cropped Tops

Let me start of by bragging that I only brought 3 pairs of shoes and flip flops with me to my 7 day vacation in Mexico. This is definitely a record for me. And though I had planned 8 outfits to wear and photograph while there, I only took pictures of 4. There were so many gorgeous locations to shoot some amazing pictures, but I could not get myself away from the beach in time to shoot the pictures. And with Mexico being closer to the Equator, sun goes down pretty early (already by 6:30) so I had to choose: stay on the beach and enjoy every minute of my 7 days there, or take pictures for the blog. Well, I guess you know the answer. Even this outfit was not intended to be shot. It’s a (minimal) outfit I wore to go out that night (it gets really hot dancing) but we shot a few pictures on the balcony, as you can see. I was not sure if I was going to use them for the blog, but then decided: why not? I wore Abercrombie & Fitch new favourite cutoff shorts, Zara stripped T-shirt which I tied to give it a cropped look and beautiful and comfortable Brian Atwood sandals. And even though it was only a week ago that I came back home, it already feels like too long ago. But I am slowly getting back to my everyday life. I’m getting there slowlyJ. Ciao!

Zapocinjem ovaj post malim hvalospevom o samoj sebi hehehe. Moram da se pohvalim da sam ponela samo tri para cipela I jedne japanke sa sobom na sedmodnevni odmor u Meksiku. To je definitvno record za mene. Iako sam ponela 8 outfita na odmor da nosim I slikam, uslikala sam na kraju samo 4. Bilo je I previse prelepih lokacija za slikanje koje bi dale divne slike, ali nisam se mogla odovjiti od plaze I vode. S obzirom da je Mexiko blizu Ekvatora, mrak pocinje da pad avec u 6:30. Prema tome morala sam da biram: ostati na plazi do kraja I iskioristiti svaki momenat tih 7 dana ili pak slikati se za blog. Odgovor vec imate, zar ne? Cak ni ovaj outfit nisam planirala da uslikam ali smo pokusali nekoliko slika u poslednjem momentu pre zalaska sunca. Ovaj outfit (minimalni) je bio namenjen za izlazak u grad. Ipak bude previse toplo nositi bilo sta vise od ovoga kada volite da plesete celo vece, kao ja hehe. Nosila sam moj novi omiljeni teksas sorc iz Abercrombie & Fitch, majicu iz Zare koju sam povezala i udobne i prelepe Brian Atwood sandale. I iako ima tek sedam dana od kada sam se vratila sa puta, cini mi se kao da je jedna vecnost prosla vec. Ali polako, vracam se u svakodnevnicu opet. Polako ali sigurno J. Cao!
