Mexico, here I come!

8:00 AMDollie DeVille

Adios muchachas! I am leaving today for the sunny Riviera Maya! I will be gone until next year, so pardon me if it's a little quiet around here and on my social media. I did manage to squeeze in a few scheduled posts though! I will return to my regular schedule when I return. Now, with the formalities out of the way we can get on to the fun stuff- clothing! 


I just finished packing and boy was it hard! It has been quite cold here this winter, especially for California. So I am having a hard time packing for 85 degree weather. I mostly packed printed cotton separates like Mexican circle skirts, shorts and tops. I didn't want to bring too much expensive vintage clothing in case my suitcase got lost or stolen. So I am mostly bringing cheap vintage and repro. I did bring one nice vintage dress for dinner though. You know I had to bring my new shoes from Lucky Lou Shoes, my new set from Pinup Revival and my new top from Heartbreaker Fashion. I also had to buy a few new pairs of modern shoes. I didn't own flip flops, can you believe that? 

Where am I going you ask? I am going to be spending most of my time in Playa Del Carmen, but I am also going to see Cancun, Cozumel and other surrounding areas. My Sister is living there so I am going to visit her. She is going to show me a great time while I am there! 

I hope to come back with lots of pretty pictures to show you all......and possibly a tan...... even though I will be wearing a lot of sunblock. 

Until next year!

  1. Yay! Super excited for you - I love Mexico!

  2. Dollie, please don't overlook the interior! After 15 months of criss-crossing Mexico, my new book looks at Americans and Canadians who’ve chosen to avoid the big expat colonies in San Miguel de Allende and Lake Chapala. What they’ve found is both diverse and surprising. If you’re wondering what the expat experience is like, whether on the beach or in the colonial cities of the interior, you need to listen to this conversation. The book is called Into the Heart of Mexico: Expatriates Find Themselves Off the Beaten Path, and there is no other book like it. There’s a sample on my website:
