Most of the time the labourous workweek seems everlasting and the supposedly fun and relaxing weekend fleeting. Three nights and two days isn't always sufficient to accomplish everything that needs to get done and still have ample time to both have fun and relax. I'm not even going to attempt it this weekend. Starting tonight, and all the way through until I have to get up Monday morning, I'm going to forgo chores, to do lists, appointments and dates. This weekend is all about relaxing.
The last couple of weeks have been a little exhuasting—for a very good reason—but tiring none the less. When I sat down and closed my eyes to relax this image popped into my head. I captured this amazing shot of a Hauhine sunset (I also visited the islands of Moorea & Bora Bora) during a trip to Tahiti. I can already feel the warm sun working its magic.
WEAR: Pair Bottega Veneta's antique rose leather pencil skirt with Topshop's gold lace sweetheart top with peplum hem and L.A.M.B.'s black leather Jaco platform. Accessorize with Marciano's Briani bib necklace for a bit of old hollywood glamour. And for when it gets cool, drape Givenchy's tiered degrade fur vest over your shoulders a la Anna Wintour. Your look wouldn't be complete without a pair of black shades, go with Burberry's Lacing square sunglasses for a modern touch and in case you were wondering...cropped bob is optional. WHY: She is virtually American fashion's mascot in chief so it makes sense to pay homage; Anna is practically synonomus with dark sunglasses and pelts.
