La Antigua, Guatemala + J. Crew

"La Antigua Guatemala is a city in which each fountain and wall could tell us a story but instead, is limited to give out the explosive happiness of a beautiful bougainvillea or the nostalgia of a lilac jacaranda."

La Antigua Guatemala I always felt it was my little secret... it was that gem that I found that I could go back time and time again and always find what I was looking for...me! That is La Antigua for me the most charming city full of a loving energy... that every time I visited I was mesmerized by it!

So I was not surprise when J.Crew choose La Antigua for their July Catalog editorial!! It was nice to find out that some of the things used to style the editorial was bought at the local market (like the woven straw hat or the sepia toned belt from the last picture). A great collection in super charming hues with lots of inspiration (I am totally trying tying a bandanna with the belt on top).

If you ever visit La Antigua you can stay at Casa Santo Domingo... it's an 18th century restored convent (I always say I want to renew my wedding vows there)...!

What is your little treasure town or city you love visiting?

By the way, stop by later as there is a giveaway on it's way...and don't forget tomorrow we have the I love your style series!

I have actually been to Antigua, I loved it so much and always swore I would go back to this quaint little language school there and go full force with learning the language.

J. Crew has picked some lovely place for ad campaigns.

It sounds truly lovely! Very old and mysterious, yet charming and beautiful. I will put in on my list of must visit travel spots.

Please feel free to stop by my blog today for a surprise!

Thanks love for sharing this catalog editorial. It is lovely. The hat was the first thing that caught my eye next to natural beauty of the model and what an awesome idea of the bandana and belt, I love the look as well.

Happy Thursday hun.
