This happens every time.Â I go away, find things I love, come back, and kick myself for not bringing back more.Â These are a few of my favourites from this trip.
Alpargatas.Â Before Toms there were alpargatas.Â They are everywhere in Argentina and Uruguay, but I like these ones in particular because they have the jute soles and thick cotton stitches along the bottom.Â And I like the faded candy colours.Â And I like the one pink stitch on the green one.Â Really should have got a pair in every colour . . .
Dresses.Â Okay, so you can find dresses just about anywhere, and I don’t usually love dresses, but I love this one.Â The fabric is a cotton silk blend so it’s super airy and light.Â Found it at Ayres in Buenos Aires.
Cachafaz alfajores. I could eat these all day, every day!Â A thick layer of dulce de leche sandwiched between 2 soft shortbread-like cookies, edges sprinkled with coconut.Â Yum!Â These ones just caught my eye because the packaging was so subtle and quiet compared to the other loud chocolate bar style wrappers.Â I think it’s the frosted matte cellophane.Â Gets me every time, but who knew they would be so unbelievably amazing?Â I wish I had brought back 3 boxes rather than just one.
