All a flutter: The migration of the butterfly

One of the less boasted about yet incredibly enchanting experiences had throughout Mexico is the migration of the butterflies. If you’re lucky enough to step outside in the very sunny streets of Tulum, look up, and you will find a swarm of butterflies have filled the air with absolute beauty.

Fluttering about in all shapes and sizes, the long travelled insects have reached their final stretch of a 5,000 mile long journey that began in North America. The final destination of the year long feet is complete with the well deserved mission of hibernation. Thousands of tiny caterpillar eggs will be laid upon selected milkweed leaves for the next generation to complete the life cycle.

Sometimes one simply needs to look up, and the inspiration finds us!. Starting now and throughout the month of July enjoy the beautiful migration of one of Mother Nature's most beautiful creatures.

 

Lars Andersson @ Sanara Tulum

Draped in rich stratum yarns of cashmere, cotton and silk, the Lars Andersson S/S 2015 collection makes its Caribbean debut. Now available for purchase inside the Sanara Tulum hotel, the beautifully un-constructed hand knitted capsule is pulled from the finest spun-yarn mills and produced overseas in Nepal.

Founded by Sweden native Lars Andersson, a pure artisan at heart, the S/S collection was made for the beach chic and city dwelling individual. Dedicated to only the finest in craftsmanship, the insouciant style is not designed for everyone. The basic and ensembly challenged need NOT apply.

Dark colors and breezy cool knits touch softly on the skin. Featuring genderless pieces that are unique in style, as they are to the individual. A sleek wrap hoodie for him or her is adorned with a simple all-over pin. While oversized T-shirt dresses can be worn to and from, any and everywhere. The Lars Andersson collection is the perfect item for traveling, no matter who or where the destination. Just wait until you get your hands on one!
