Gypsy Hand

My mind operates in weird ways sometimes. I was trying to get an outfit together last Sunday morning for the San Diego County Fair. Rather than  basing my outfit choices on pratical matters like the weather, how easy it is to function in the outfit, etc., I let other influences dominate. Questions like "What type of energy do I want to emit?" pop in my head and the answers guide me to my ensemble for the day (What can say- I'm undeniably a feeler). Going to a fair always brings out the child in me so I wanted my look to embody the happiness and vibrancy that often comes with being a kid. Plus, I needed all my hamsa jewelry to protect me from the big, scary rides, eek!

Blue Ridge Mountains

We're finally in summer territory folks. Rather than dwelling on my least favorite season, I'm trying to celebrate summery things that I give me joy. Summer vacations up in the moutains literally make me the happiest human on the planet, even though I've only been on a couple of them. A few Julys ago, my fambam and I took a trip up to Lake Tahoe. The mountains stole my heart in those 5 days as we hiked, biked, and stared at them in all their glory. With all this in mind, it's no wonder why I was instantly so captivated by this mountain shirt dress from StyleWe (a wonderful online shop that showcases independent fashion designers). Any dress that reminds me of a heartwarming memory is a dress for me. I also adoooore the constrast between the cool, blue skies and the firey fields in the pattern. If I could bring any print on a piece of clothing to life, it'd be this one. I would just rest ontop of that moutain and never climb down.

The Golden Age

I'm not in my "golden age" by any stretch of the imagination. Dressing for success with lavish gold jewels makes up for not obtaining any real achievements in my life (or so I pretend it does). Playfully self deprecating comments aside, I'd like to turn the attention to the artwork by Gustav Klimt featured on my shirt. His most iconic piece, "The Kiss" came about during his "golden phase," a time in which he used gold leaf in his paintings. The intricate patterns and rich color schemes Klimt uses amazes me endlessly. Wearing this Klimt-inspired ensemble makes me feel very royal, like I'm ruling over millions in my golden, antique throne (but in reality, I'm just alone in the middle of a dried up desert).

Fly

Not a cloud in sight today, except on my sneakers from Mr. Gugu & Miss Go. These kicks are as light as a feather and vibrant as can be. It's as if they fell straight outta cloud 9. Wearing these fly shoes gives me the urge to, well, fly. Whenever I'm next to the window a plane, my eyes fixate on the clouds to the point where I almost feel like I'm outside amongst them. You could say that this ensemble is inspired by that moment and the serenity that comes with it: the moment when life is up in the air yet you feel so grounded.
