Traveling Light: Mexican Street Style

 Ethical Fashion for Globetrotting

I’m a gypsy at heart. I love traveling far and wide, and as often as I can to parts unknown. Traveling gives me a fresh perspective on life and opens my eyes and heart to new cultures, new experiences and new possibilities. Though exploring different locales can be fun, putting together the right wardrobe suitable for multiple destinations and activities – often in different extreme climates – can present a bit of a challenge. After years of overpacking on trips, these days, I travel light. I pack in simple layers, building my wardrobe from a neutral palette, like black and white, then adding in classic pops of color and fun accessories, like my favorite leopard print and shimmery jewelry. Packing light requires a bit of planning, but when done right, gives me all the freedom I need to indulge my wanderlust comfortably and stylishly.

In this breezy look, I’m wandering the tiny streets of Puerto Morales, a small town on the Mexican Riviera during a healing yoga and pilates retreat at Casa Om. This outfit took me effortlessly from a bikram yoga class to the beach and back out to the street for more exploring. Here’s to traveling light on all of your adventures!
