Style + Travel Guide: Santiago, Chile Travel Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

Our final stop on our adventure in Chile was Santiago. Santiago is a very modern city with a large population and is completely surrounded by the Andes mountains. From almost every point in the city you can see the snowcapped Andes, which made us excited to get up to the snow! We walked around the city exploring the many sites, restaurants, and one of the largest malls in the world. My favorite outfit during my urban adventures consisted of skinny black jeans, my fringe sweater, and a fedora. This was a casual, yet stylish outfit that was comfortable to walk in and perfect for the cool nights. I love the boho vibe of this sweater and felt it went great with all the brightly colored buildings of Chile.
After a couple days in the city we decided to venture up the mountain and end our trip with snowboarding. We actually managed to drive up the mountain, snowboard until dark, and then hop on our flight home all in one day!
Keep reading for tips on where to sleep in Santiago, shop in the city, and where to snowboard in the Andes! (more…)
