Today was our last day in our homeland — writing from the boarding gate — and it’s always a sancocho of emotions. On our ride here, my 9-year-old grabbed my hand and ran it over his wet cheeks. I hugged him while I let my tears fall.
It’s the story of our lives — feeling like we’re leaving a big piece of our hearts behind. So we cry our tears, take a deep breath, and carry that invisible suitcase full of all the memories we made.
What I Wore In Bogotá, Colombia: 7 Practical Yet Cute Outfits
I originally planned to share these looks in our newsletter, but the TME team thought this one would be even better on the blog. This post is full of love, weather changes, family, and clothing that gives so much life to my closet.
1. Hugged By My Ancestors: A Pretty Poncho, Denim Joggers + A Sheer Top
My mission for this trip was to buy a poncho made by people in the Muysca community, and I fell in love with this one. I wore it over my Cinq à Sept denim joggers and AllSaints’ sheer long-sleeve top.
P.S. If I decided to work directly with artisans, would you buy pieces like this? This one is by @somosmhuyscas
2. A Day In The Mountains & Falls: Cargo Pants + A 1-Piece Swimsuit
These BP. cargo pants have proven to be incredibly useful and stylish. This time, I wore them over my one-piece swimsuit to hike to the falls and visit family after. They dry quickly and keep their shape.
3. Back In Bogotà For A Tia’s Birthday: Trouser Jeans
These Joe’s trouser jeans have become a favorite. I love that they have no rips or major distressing, and the fit is so good. (I had to get them hemmed.)
4. Last Visit To Paternal Abuelita In A Nearby Pueblo: Trouser Jeans (Again — They’re That Good)
Yes, they’re the same Joe’s jeans from the day before. I love them so much, and they’re perfect for the warmer temperatures.
5. Last Visit To Maternal Abuelita: Cargo Pants, A Bodysuit + A Cropped Button-Up
6. Early Market Run & Last Visit To Nieces: A Crewneck Sweatshirt + Leggings
Some of you may remember my niece Valeria. She’s now 14 — FOURTEEN! — and wanted to be in my post. Her outfit wins, but this Nike sweatshirt is the best one I’ve ever owned. And the Vuori leggings? So comfy.
7. Salsa Dancing Night For My Husband’s 40th Birthday: A Floral Dress
This Floret Studios cutout dress looks way more expensive than it is. I paired it with boots for Bogotá’s night weather, but I can’t wait to wear it with sandals in NY.
