Mexico City is the dreamiest city you didn't know you were dying to visit.
What We're Packing
Given the city's high altitude, it's all about packing for cool mornings and warm days; other than that, few guidelines apply. Like Brooklyn or Los Angeles, CDMX style varies and shifts from neighborhood to neighborhood.
You'll want to roam Roma Norte in funky prints and vintage finds, but you'll want a chic ensemble and luxurious fabrics for cafe hopping in Polanco.
(Regardless of where you're ending up, comfortable shoes are a must for long days exploring the different neighborhoods, parks, and museums!)
"For Mexico City, I live in the tried and true combination of feminine dresses with edgy jackets and Chucks." - Nicole

When We Think of Mexico City Style, We Think...
Bold, eclectic, sensual, and always ready for business.
Where We're Staying
Casa Luciana Condesa in La Condesa- An oasis in the verdant green of La Condesa with a dreamy rooftop and immaculately designed rooms.

The First Place We're Going
...is to Frëims Cafe in Hipódromo. We'll grab a cappuccino "para llevar" and sip it while strolling through the lush jungle of Parque México.
Then, we're heading to Roma Norte for vintage shopping and cocktails or towards Polanco for some museum time before collapsing at one of the many outdoor cafes off of Parque Lincoln.
The Bar(s) We're Grabbing Drinks At
La Ladina, a neon pink haven reminiscent of cocktail bars in Manhattan's LES.
The rooftop at Supra (at sunset, before it gets rowdy).
La Clandestina, a hipster mezcal paradise with amazing people watching.
The rooftop at Aleli.
La Ladina is a vibe.
Our Favorite CDMX Vintage Store(s)
"Roma Norte has some of the best vintage stores I've ever been in; better than Melrose, better than the East Side, better than that Haight." - Nicole
Goodbye Folk (there are several locations of this absolute gem, each with troves of vintage treasures)

Our Advice for First Time Visitors
Be ready to walk everywhere!
Eat the street tacos, get lost in the parks, and even if you're not a "museum person," carve out an hour to visit the anthropology museum and succumb to the amazing artifacts.
