There’s 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 it’s 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.
I jumped on it a few weeks ago while visiting Mami and Papi and had too much fun without any intention of making it a moment. 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 because it so easily pairs with a basic tank. I’ve dressed it up with a cropped jean jacket and a fancier fedora and still the skirt spoke volumes. Love it. This is how I do boho chic on a hot summer afternoon.
Eat well, love unapologetically, pray with true intention, and take care of yourself.
