One of the Mexican cultural traditions I love most is the posada, which is probably like any other holiday/Christmas party you have attended. Except in Mexico, you have posadas with everyone you associate yourself with: the office, your work friends, your team at work, your team you play soccer with on Tuesdays, you friends from high school you meet for coffee on Wednesdays, your group of friends you play cards with on Thursdays, the friends you go out with on Fridays and Saturdays, and your friends you go to the movies with on Sundays.

This Saturday, I had my posada with my group of best girlfriends, whom I get together with every Wednesday for coffee, dinner, etc. These girls have grown to be some of my closest friends and are definitely my family here in Mexico. This year we were missing a few, but to celebrate the holidays, we went to our favorite restaurant, La Nacional, for a big feast. Since the Spring season decided to show its face that day, I wore a lace dress I have had for years, and to tone down the sweetness, I added a studded clutch and motorcycle shooties.

Una de las tradiciones mexicanas que me encanta es la posada, que probablemente es como cualquier fiesta navideña que has asistido, pero en Mexico tienes posada con todos los grupos con quien te acosias: la oficna, tus amigos en la oficina, tu equipo del trabajo, tu equipo con quien juegas futbol los martes, tus amigos de la prepa con quien juntas los miercoles, los amigos con quien te juntas para jugar cartas los jueves, los amigos con quien sales los viernes y sabados y los amigos con quien te vas al cine los domingos.

Este sabado, tuve la posada de mis mejores amigas, con quienes me junto todos los miercoles para tomar un cafe o cenar. Estas niñas son de mis mejores amigas de toda la vida y han formado parte de mi familia aqui en Mexico, Aunque nos faltaron algunas, festejamos la temprada navideña con una comida en La Nacional. Ese dia el clima se sintio como la primavera, entonces me puse un vestido de encaje con una bolsa de tachones y unos botines-zapatos motociclistas.
