A Christmas market in Mexico City. My Par en Par robe dress matches!

Hi readers!

I’m writing this post in Mexico City. So far, we’ve found this town to be super cosmopolitan, full of expats, and art, incredible food, parks, and shops selling whatever you wish. We’re off to the Pacific Coast for a few days next week, then San Miguel de Allende, back here, Oaxaca, and Tulum. If you have any recommendations, please let me know!

Meanwhile, the artist site Wunderkid put me in a short list of the best sustainable fashion blogs, along with some other superstars. There are some new ones in there I hadn’t heard of, but they look excellent!
