I just returned from Guatemala, where I was producing photo and video content for an artisan tour of Antigua and Lake Atitlan. The streets of Antigua are layered with stories! Days are filled with coffee in cobblestone cafes, visits to textile markets, wanders through galleries. Nights are filled with music, mezcal, and magic.
This ombre skirt from MAJE allowed me to dress comfortably on the job while still showing some color. It’s best to wear layers in Guatemala, because temperatures can shift quickly and sometimes there are afternoon showers. When traveling I love to layer neutral base layers with a brightly colored scarf. I don’t like to attract a lot of attention to myself, especially when traveling solo, so a scarf adds a bit of flair and can also help you to look a little bit more like a local.
I’m super happy that fanny packs (I mean, ‘belt bags’) have made a come back, because they really are the best travel accessory. You can toss your phone, wallet, and keys in there and walk around all day hands free and without worrying about theft.
And of course, I never leave the house without my Pared sunglasses. When I lived in Australia I became friends with the designers behind Pared, so I love to support them and watch their business grow! They always have such fun and unique eyewear styles and they’re very well made.
