León

Blue dress Charlotte Russe - Red tote bag Victorinox - Straw hat 

Walking around bright white domes, blue skies... it's the colonial city of León in Nicaragua, specifically the roof top of the colonial church of Asunción.

The moment I stepped barefoot (you're asked to remove your shoes) on the white floor and looked up, I was totally in awe. 
The bright whiteness reminded me of a white field of snow, being on a cloud or a sight of Mykonos, although I've never been to Mykonos. 

The sole idea of discovery was a thrill.

Outfit Globalisation

Black and white polka dot pleat skirt and top Liz Claiborne, similar skirt here and here - Black cardigan H&M, similar  
Red velvet heels Melissa similar - Black quilted bucket bag Love Moschino, almost identical here and here 


As mentioned yesterday I packed polka dots and flower brooches for this business trip. Today it was all about this two piece set that actually looks like a dress. Its easy to wear, does not need to be ironed and fits marvellously well. Interestingly, the polka dot top and skirt were hand me downs, the red velvet shoes I bought in Brasil, the flower brooch is from an artisan market in Buenos Aires, the cardigan (made in China) bought at H&M during a NYC trip, the bag, the newest of them all, a Moschino quilted bucket bag was purchased in Panama. Talk about outfit globalisation.

Polka dot travel capsule

Black trousers - Blue polka dot shirt - Black cardigan H&M - Blue flower brooch - Taupe heels Breckelle's -
Quilted bucket bag Love Moschino 


When packing for my trip to Managua I thought I would focus on polka dots and flower brooches as a theme for my travel capsule.  First of all because I love polka dots, second I have not worn them in a while and third they all worked with my black cardigan. As for the flower brooches, I figured they would distract anyone from paying attention to me wearing the same black cardigan day after day. Tricks of the trade ;)
