Lookbook: Style to Inspire Link Up

My weekend was spent in Mexico. Since flights can get crazy expensive close to Christmas, I decided to sort of move my holiday up a few weeks. My mom came to visit during the week and we took her all around the San Francisco Bay Area. I think she really liked Muir Woods. Then the hubs and I went to Puebla, Cholula and Mexico City with some friends (seriously, not even yet back depending on when you're reading this). It was a fun trip with beautiful architecture and tortillas that never end. I think I should brush up on my Spanish, because apparently, my accent is pretty good. We explored tunnels, saw cathedrals, walked pyramids, ate, and I even bought a new pair of shoes from Zara. You might have seen some of my exploits on Instagram. I also took a walk on the wild side and ate escamoles cooked in butter. Although they were tasty, I think they gave me a stomach ache. Oh...escamoles are ant eggs.

At one of our many food outings--as there were many--we ate at this quaint restaurant in Puebla. Of course, I had to order horchata because Mexico, duh. And even though I'm not a klutz, I managed to spill said horchata all over my blanket scarf, jeans, boots and new Kate Spade bag. WTF? I'm hoping I can get something to wipe down the leather. Any ideas?

For this look, I'm wearing this lovely Cooper & Ella top (not the outfit that got spilled on). You might remember when I mentioned them in my Holiday Must Haves post because their holiday collection is a great resource for some amazing tops.
