We just returned home from a week in Medellin, Colombia, its such a beautiful, unique city with beautiful shades of green and delicious coffee. Medellin weather is amazing, its known for its spring-like temperatures year round and with the exception of one cool morning, the entire trip was 75 degrees of perfection.
I learned so much from my trip to Medellin so I am working on a fun travel guide for Americans traveling to the city. A year ago, I never would have thought that I would travel to Colombia because I thought it was a violent, scary place. I was so wrong! It’s such a beautiful country with nice, welcoming individuals who are very proud of their country.
In true Heather fashion, I wanted to pack light. I only took a carry on for my 6-day trip so I had to pack items that were versatile and I could re-wear. Luckily my wardrobe is FULL of black, black pieces are so versatile and mix well with almost every other color.
I really don’t need new summer or spring clothes like, at all! but the day before the trip I made a stop in Target and bought several new things that I excitedly packed for Colombia. All over Instagram, I see women talking about their affinity for Target clothing. (Also, if you aren’t following me on Instagram, why don’t you head that way and follow me?) To be honest, I am traditionally not the biggest fan of Target clothes but they have new lines of clothing that are super cute and actually really nice quality.
Every piece I took on the trip was under $50 because you know this girl loves a deal!
Now let’s talk about some clothes!
Outfit 1: A Day In The Park
Outfit 2: Exploring The Hotel Grounds
We stayed one night in a sprawling hotel in Rionegro, right near the airport. The grounds were beautiful and covered with Peacocks.
Outfit 4: Another Day, A Different Park
I love a graphic tee, I think they are so cute and look great with jeans or skirts. My favorite graphic tee is this old one from Abercrombie years ago. Unfortunately, its no longer available so I put a list together of my favorite graphic tees under $25.
Outfit 5: A Night Out On The Town
I was going through my pictures today and realized that I was so concerned with getting outfit pictures that I only got one picture with my husband in it, oops! I had such a great time in Medellin, I can’t wait to perfect my Spanish so I won’t be so embarrassing next time I visit South America.
