Well said, a nice reminder for us all. xo

As a fashion illustrator in the 60's and 70's, Antonio Lopez was famous for his caught moment, journalistic approach to his art. I came across this particular image and it was love at first sight. From the colors, to the tights and the tan lines, I can't get enough. I then went down what they call a "rabbit hole" within the internet and discovered some of his earlier works, which have been praised by the likes of Andy Warhol and Karl Lagerfeld.

Check out more of his beautiful work here (as well as an intimate self-portrait).

Summertime. I mean how sweet is that word? I always feel so nostalgic at the start of summer and suppose it’s beauce I think of last summers events and wonder how this year will compare.

This year I’m stripping it down to the science of summer, Solstice. The word derives from those smart Roman's and their native Latin language. Sol (sun) and Sistere (to stand still). Often when juggling work, finding what’s for dinner and summer events, I forget to slow down and take in how sweet summer can be.

Stand still and soak up that vitamin D!
