What to Wear – Cinco de Mayo

I’ve always loved Cinco de Mayo – according to Wikipedia, the holiday “originated with Mexican-American communities in the American West as a way to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War, and today the date is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride.”  It’s also the perfect excuse to drink margaritas and/or Coronas, wear a sombrero, and hang out at your local Mexican restaurant.  Even though I don’t need a special holiday to do any of those things, it’s a fun reason to have a fiesta anyways. I’ve given you ideas on what to eat on Cinco de Mayo, now here’s an idea of what to wear:
