Cactus Chic

Today in SoCal I felt a surge fo Summer come straight at me. There was a slightly dryer feel in the air today. The wind was blowing a sweet warm breeze and I just couldnt help the urge to drink water and Iced tea. I mean it could have just been the fact that I was drinking last night for ST. Patricks day or that I wore all black today for work. Either way I really liked the feeling that was coming from the warm weather.

I believe that weather can change a persons mood drastically. There is a term called S.A.D. Seasonal Adjustment Disorder: a person who is deeply affected by the weather season to season. Whenever there is a change in weather where I live in Socal everyone notices immediatly and it either makes them happy when its hot, or sad/angry when it is cold or raining.

Living in Oc you see many Cacti in the front yards of homes or in parking lots. I was inspired by the colors of the Cactus garden in my yard and made an outfit based around it.

This is what I would be seen wearing if I were in Santa Fe or just hanging out in Santa Barbara at the missions.
*have you ever been inspired by something you saw in nature? Sometimes that is where you can find the best color combinations that came together naturally.
