7. Mexico City

It's too late for Cinco de Mayo but this set is number 7 in the 60 City Challenge. I loved the colorful images of Mexico City and decided to use a subtle color palette for the outfit. The hand-knit poncho from Calypso St. Barth has 3/4 sleeves and knot details in the front. Straight leg indigo denim jeans are from Paul by Paul Smith. The lace-up boots with crochet panels on the side plays off the texture of the poncho. The leatherette trimmed handbag from Forever21 extends the natural color palette. Western-style horseshoe earrings brings more ethnic/exotic feel to the look. The bracelets by H&M add a little surprise to the look.

If you wonder why there is a Nivea tin in the picture, I can explain. There was a contest by Nivea going on at the time, so I tried to save time by doing the set for both the 60 City Challenge and the Nivea contest. :P Later on, I submit the set to a Dream Destination contest and won 2nd place. Hooray!
