Dia de los Muertos


My first Day of the Dead here. I have always wanted to travel to Mexico to enjoy this time but it never happened. Instead I just started living here. No avoiding local taditions like that. To tell the truth here the holiday more honored is not call Dia de los Muertos but instead Hanal Pixan. It has so slight differences but that's what Maya celebrate and in the Yucatan peninsula it's  all about honoring maya traditions. 
We had a display of many ofrendas around as well as some food stalls, concerts, places to show off you interpretations of Catrina, sing traditional songs (for some reaason La Llorona was sang the most), dances and surely some shopping (yes I ate pan de muertos again, I can not explain why I loove it so much). We had SO much fun immersing in the traditions, I am sure we will do more when Ada Maria is a little older.
October 31th we also had some Halloween celebrations here with kids trick-or-treating which was super adorable. I have never had October-November time that fun! How did you celebrated the holidays?






My outfit is casual again, I wore jeans with a simple crop top (it's so cold lately, I miss lighter clothess). A belt was last minute addition as well as my big spooky pendant (it's a ram with 8 eyes), I do think it elevated my simplistic look.



I was wearing:
Befree jeans
Forever 21 top
Cuidado con el Perro shoes
Burberry belt

 

Have a nice day,

    1. It really was in my list and I think it is absolutely amazing. I totally advice to visit capital or other bigger cities or on contrary small rural villages for it. I heard it is absolutely spectacular in Oaxaca region

    1. never knew it wasn't a thing in Australia. When I think of it none of my Australian pals ever mentioned it but I didn't pay much attention. So your kids didn't get to trick-or-treat? that's a little sad

  7. Your outfit is cute. We kind of don't celebrate Halloween anymore. We used to when the kids were younger and would trick or treat.
