Out in Public – At La Recoleta Cemetery

There’s something about being in a Latin country that makes me dress a little differently than I usually do.  It’s all about being very put together and even a little preppy – my usual baggy choices don’t really translate. There are also some safety concerns in certain cities (especially for tourists like me!) so the aim is to dress well but not flashy, while leaving the valuables at home.  Buenos Aires in particular was really interesting for fashion – I’m always looking for new things and I certainly found a lot I had never heard of/seen before.  There are very few international chain stores in the city and aside from Zara, Levi’s, Nike and Adidas there was little I recognized. The best part of these new finds was that most of them were from right there in Buenos Aires (don’t worry… more on this later).  For now, photos of an outfit I felt great in while walking around the city, taken at one of the most interesting/amazing places I have ever seen.
