With black, it seems like anything really goes. Dress over jeans? No problem. My California diaries continues. Living out of a suitcase sometimes when I’m on the go for work forces you to experiment. Sometimes I’m away from my home in NYC for over 2 weeks! I had this silk dress hanging in my closet, but for hiking through the back streets of my home town, a good pair of western flares was just what I needed. Cuffed at the edges with a crazy metallic statement shoe. My hometown is a little cowboy town. Cactus everywhere. Ranch style homes. Horses living life up behind the hills. It’s a quiet and mellow place. So hot in the summer you have to crank your aircon so high topped off with a sip of iced lemonade. The left side of your arm super tan from driving in the hot, bright sun. Yet, it’s so cold in the winters you’re literally curling up in your wool sweaters with a hot chocolate. But there’s something I love about being so far out…close to the desert. Let’s just say things are always a lot less complicated.
