SWINGING PINK.








nothing better than a short vacay at my parents' home, my childhood home where no matters in the world are relevant. this swing has been hanging on that lovely tree since I was 10 or so. yeah, we've changed and upgraded it as its been suffered intense weather. but its purpose still serves us all well: peaceful afternoons, swinging back and forth, taking in the sun; a great stage for a family portrait; a romantic coversastion with your beau; or a simple moment with a child from the neighborhood that's fascinated by the rocking.

From a couple of weeks ago while visiting my parents. Dave, my awesome photographer spent an afternoon with me and captured a moment of stillness.

the skirt is one of my all-time favorites. it's silk and drapes beautifully. and it's even better b/c it so easily pairs with a basic tank. I've dressed it up with a cropped jacket and a fancier fedora and still the skirt spoke volumes. <3 it.

Wearing:

Designer silk maxi skirt; Old Navy tank; street fedora purchased in Adams Morgan, D.C.; Donna Karan shades; Mexican and Peruvian silver jewelry; Max Azria amber cuff; vintage belt from childhood

Bren dearest,

You have a fabulous camera, a good photographer, GORGEOUS CLOTHS, a beautiful LATINA look and sass (gotta have it, non?) and a fabulous blog. THANK YOU for visiting me! From looking at the scenery, it looks like you are in the East...my husband is a BRONX-BORN Puerto-Rican and I am L.A. born Mexican-American, French speaking Latina! And I love cloths too my dear. So glad to see you again, and your comments are special to me. Have FUNNNNNNNNNN!!! Hey, you know what I am loving this summer to wear? Dresses with a TULLE underskirt and BOOTS, like Cameron Diaz in the movie, DAY AND KNIGHT! You would look stunning in that too! Carry on and SHINE! Anita
