My Look: Tulum

The last two weeks I travelled through Yucatán and I have so many impressions to share with you. My final destination was the luxe-hippie beach town of Tulum on Mexico’s Yucatán peninsula, a place I fell in love with. Beautiful white-sand beaches, active social life, and the laidback lifestyle of a beach town, it is somehow cosmic and natural at once. So the print of the dress and the color of the shoes were a perfect fit. As I am very particular about my clothes, I had promised myself not to bring anything expensive or too fancy. This is the most fashionable I got on this trip and between us it is definitely not Tulum style. As one told me: «Tulum is hippie, golden sandals». There is not one place you can wear high heels and funnily enough, I loved it!

My look: Printed midi dress and green heels, both by Zarabeaded Mexican-style clip earrings by Etro, Possession 18-karat rose gold diamond ring by Piaget, Tonda Métropolitaine watch by Parmigiani Fleurier and quilted bag by Chanel.

Mexican Makeover for Ancient Greek Sandals


Right now, I am so much dreaming about a sunshine getaway. Honestly, I cannot wait for the holidays to start. Great news is that Ancient Greek Sandals has the right footwear made for us. The gorgeous shoe brand has collaborated with Caravana – the brand founded by Francesca Bonato, owner of famous Tulum resort Coqui Coqui – meaning that for the first time the sandals will be made in Mexico rather than in Greece.


The collection is sold in the Coqui Coqui boutique in Tulum and atà-porter.comicon.Sandals_3
