C'est La Vie

When Christmas and New Years pass and January hits, I start to feel a new light and inside one of those new lights lays the anticpation of summer. There's no denying I'm a summer girl, the feeling of this season makes me glow and makes me feel warm inside. So to help me get through the remains of these winter months I've already started to think about my Summer Dreams.

Ever since I laid my eyes on Mirage magazine a couple of years back, the fantasy of the jet-set 1960's/70's girl has inspired me; Summer, Sun, Skin, Youth, Rebellion and Nostalgia... a girl with a touch of glamour, a girl who isn't afraid to bare her golden frame. This is the girl that's inspiring my summer thoughts.

Stone washed denim, suede, mini skirts, tees, touches of gold and leopard, espadrilles, a bodysuit to wear with her favorite levi's boyfriend jeans and those skin tight hot pants that hug you with so much love you don't want to take them off. Her toned golden stomach and tight booty makes her not ashamed to bare it all, and those statement sunglasses that give her that LA cat-eye glam look - like the Prism ones above... hide the rebellion in her eyes.

Hair will be messy, and wavy and skin super soft. I have been using Rodin body creme and love how silky it makes my skin feel. Around my neck will dangle a delicate gold chain that whispers "more than all the stars" by Laurel Denise on Free People right now.

This summer I'm all about Bohemian Futurism, the girl of your dreams projected straight to your heart.
