A SoCal GetAway Dress
Hey Lovelies! Long time no see! Let's blame school 100%. Juggling school, work, blogging, and wedding planning is a job for two people, although it's just me. I'm stressed! However, the show must carry on darling which brings me to this post. I am OBSESSED with this dress! It is like the perfect Salsa dancing dress! Which brings me to point #2, I truly believe I was Mexican in another lifetime lol. I connect so deeply with the Mexican culture but maybe it's because they have similar values to African culture and are a vibrant people. When I first started college, I hadn't been around many people generally. All of a sudden, I was thrown into this beautiful melting pot of all colors and nationalities. One of the "mother hens" of our group was a beautiful Reina who reigned from Oaxaca. She truly was the first introduction to Mexican culture at a personal level and she taught me so much about life. Most importantly, she taught me how to cook Mexican food and understand flavors. Scroll Down For More...
I am absolutely in love with this dress! Every time I wear it, I feel like regal nobility from some royal line. I love how it dances in the wind as I walk and it's bright and vibrant colors announce their arrival from across a room! This dress was the perfect accessory when I was in SoCal this summer. It was light and airy for the hot weather and it was cute AF! I paired it with some old Zara leather sandals that I've had forever and still religiously wear!
For makeup, I paired this with a natural complete beat face as well as a nude lippie. I feel as if the dress alone was drama enough and I didn't need anything extra. I wore this dress the entire afternoon around Venice Beach. Have you seen my article about California? If not, click here.
