okay so maybe it’s not a city street and more of a jungle road…
and maybe these aren’t city blocks filled with skyscrapers but wondering paths of sand and driftwood…
but this is art and street art is art…
and this art comes to you from the in the tropical town of Tulum.
Pattern Pattern everywhere…I couldn’t help but be inspired by all of this amazingness that surrounded me on vacay. From the stenciled path to the architectural elements to the bold colorful moments in the textiles..it was EVERYWHERE!
Whenever I return from a trip I always bring back an idea, a food or a new practice that I can incorporate into my world. The idea I need to re-create is the brilliant, beautiful bohemian stenciled cement path…LOVE!
a friendly mid-week reminder to go for it!
Doesn’t get much better than this…wake up in the magical Mayan town of Tulum, have a wonderful breakfast on the beach, take a leisurely morning bike ride and come upon a shop tucked into the jungle in a shipping container called La Troupe that has some amazings MuuMuus…Life is good! Correction Life is Amazing!!!
I quickly realize not only am I in one of the most magical places on the planet I am also in the muumuu mecca of North America. Truly everywhere I look there are muumuus…I thought at first maybe they were all a mirage but in fact they were the real deal.
I fell hard for this beautiful cotton gauzy number. I know neutral in color and no print…what??? But the material,the cut and the subtle details sold me!
This sweet shop La Troupe was started by 3 friends from Argentina who were up for a new adventure in Mexico. They have a healthy respect for the planet in all they do and believe in keeping things very local with all pieces being made in and by local Mayan communities.
If you find yourself in Tulum or Playa Del Carmen this is a must stop for a quick shop. Until then check them out on http://www.latroupe.com.mx
The photos were all taken at Casa Malca which was also an amazing place to reisde during out time in Tulum.
The last photo is my personal protest of not wanting the leave…
MuuMuu in Mexico with Love,
