Time to Escape

Time to Escape

We fulfilled our craving for a sunny escape with Chicago-based photographer Ali Stone, who packed her Jasmines and headed to Mexico…

“From the time I was young, I loved the concept of capturing moments in time,” says Ali. “I’ve always felt there was something so special about holding onto a memory forever.”

Right now, we’re holding on to Ali’s stunning pics of her Mexican getaway.

“I visited San Miguel de Allende and fell in love,” she says. “The town is spectacular with gorgeous colours, cobblestone streets, the friendliest people and delicious food. Tucked in the middle of it all is Casa Sierra Nevada, a little escape with a stunning courtyard and pool.”

Ali, who describes her style as “elevated casual,” is a big Cougar fan year-round. “I love the sandals but also have THE PILLOW BOOT ®, the Vanetta, the Vanity and the Verity! I live in Chicago so lots of warm boots are a must!”

Whether it’s cold or hot, Cougar is a go-to for Ali. “I’m all about boots with shorts and rain boots when it’s sunny. I’m a big believer in putting on what feels good so I love Cougar for transitioning from season to season.”
