Today we wanted to journey to Peru, it’s been on both of our bucket lists for such a while. There’s interesting and beautiful scenery there, as well as a rich history of textiles and weaving.
When I think of Peru I think of bright colored textiles and patterns. Since I don’t usually like patterns, I picked pieces, that were solid but contained patterns through their textures and weaves. It’s all about chunkiness and layering!
For this trip, I’m drawing inspiration from Peruvian textile traditions (you might have picked up on the fact that we are kind of textile nerds by now I think.) I LOVE pattern and you can bet you would find some in my suitcase. To keep the looks clean though, I would pair pattern heavy pieces with modern shapes that have a bit of that lady-archaeologist flair.
What do you think of our choices? And what would you wear on this trip? Let us know in the comments!
