Tomorrow my husband and I are flying off to Mexico City for two days and needless to say, I am thrilled! We haven’t been anywhere by ourselves in a few years so my mother and sister said they would take care of the kids for my birthday, which is next week.
Best. Birthday. Gift. Ever.
I thought I would celebrate early by getting inspired by one of Mexico’s most famous artists: Frida Kahlo. I have always had a streak of bohemian in me and as a California girl I have been very influenced by the Mexican culture. When I was pregnant with Ella, most of my maternity clothing consisted of long skirts and embroidered peasant tops because I thought they were so chic and still incredibly comfortable. Even though it is still pretty early in the season, I put together a round-up of clothing I found that is inspired by Frida. Hope you enjoy!
One. Two. Three. Four.
Five. Six. Seven. Eight.
Nine. Ten. Eleven. Twelve.
Thirteen. Fourteen. Fifteen. Sixteen.
Seventeen. Eighteen. Nineteen. Twenty.
As you can see, Frida was partial to bright colors, lots of embroidery and lace, stacks of jewelry, and is often seen with piles of flowers in her hair. Though I don’t suggest wearing all of this at the same time, adding a bit of bohemia to your wardrobe will add a brightness to the long winter most of us are still in.
So tell me, have you heard of Frida before? What do you think of her style? Do you have a bit of bohemian in you as well?
