While Cinco de Mayo has historic meaning, for me, it usually marks the true beginning of summer! In the past, that weekend has always been beautiful and sunny and to celebrate, one of our friends typically throws an all day party complete with tacos, margaritas, cold Mexican beer and even a piñata (how cute are these?).
For last year’s Cinco de Mayo party, I wore this outfit — a cute embroidered top from Madewell and ripped white jeans with a pair of Dolce Vita sandals. This year I really want a beautiful Mexican-inspired dress to wear, so I’m on the hunt!
Some of my favorites are from Mi Golondrina, if you haven’t heard of the brand, you need to check them out. All the dresses and tops are handmade in Mexico and are totally stunning! I need one in my closet asap — I jsut can’t decide whether I’d get more use out of a dress or top. What do you think?
We don’t have plans for Cinco de Mayo just yet, but knowing my friends, someone will volunteer to host a party (maybe us this year?) and I can only cross my fingers that the weather is as good as it was last year! I rounded up twelve dresses that would be ideal for a Cinco de Mayo party. I’m partial to this one and this one, but really, I love them all!
Do you celebrate Cinco de Mayo? Which dresses would you wear?
