WHAT TO PACK: SAN MIGUEL DE ALLENDE

If you love beautiful dresses and special memories, pack an empty suitcase! Bring sunblock and flat sandals because the sun is strong and the streets are cobblestone. Don't pack any clothes because you will want to buy an entire new wardrobe in town. We left with hand-embroidered shirts, dresses, scarves, table runners, and a hammock... AND WE DON'T EVEN HAVE A TREE!! 

 Pack a  Kiini swimsuit  for the pool,  Fendi sunglasses , the most fun  pom-pom sandals , a bright  passport cover ,  beaded fringe earrings ,  Supergoop! sunblock , a  Leica  to capture the memories, a stack of  bangles , a big  straw tote ,  gold strappy sandals , and an empty  suitcase  to fill with all your new finds!
