Descansar (Spanish): To Rest

This past week was incredibly full. Foregoing Los Angeles Fashion Week to witness both my sons participate in their activities - A full blown concert one night and football another. Plus, the ongoing work of getting A Place Called Peace finalized (see book description); the Periscope broadcast on Tuesday, and of course, my So What to Twenty posts. Don't get me wrong, I'm absolutely thankful to be able to do what I love. I love it so much it's hard to break-away from it - sometimes forgetting to eat, or realizing my back aches because I've been hunched over my keyboard for the entire day. Si, necesito descansar (Yes, I need to rest).

Monday my husband is going to whisk me away to one of my favorite locations - The Huntington Library, Museum and Botanical Gardens, for a leisurely afternoon stroll around the grounds and lunch. I so need this day. Yes, it is only a day, but I plan on taking full advantage of this quiet retreat. I plan on avoiding my email and social media. Um, maybe I'll post some pics onto Instagram...maybe.

To go along with the theme of descansar (rest), for this post I'm wearing a relaxed look with a distinct Spanish flavor: a pair of easy denims I've had for years, but decided to cut the hem to have a fringed look; simple white tank top; an outer piece with embroidery and fringe, hat and boots.  Enjoy!

Outfit Details - Embroidered Outerwear: SheInPetite Curvy Boot-Cut Jeans: Old Navy (hems removed for fringe); Lou & Grey White Racer back Tank: Ann Taylor Loft; Ralph Lauren Boots via TJ Maxx (I've had these for years, but the Ralph Lauren Michaela Calfskin Boot is very similar); Wide Brim Fedora: Forever 21(check out the wide selection of hats at Forever 21)

I'll be back on Tuesday evening with the second part to Products That Give Me Life. I hope you'll join me on Periscope, Tuesday @ 7:00pm (PST) @SoWhattoTwenty. I'll share my favorite products, websites, etc from N to Z. I'll see you at #TheIntersection {wink}

    1. Thanks Elle. You know I love a good Spanish reference.
