Inspired By: Mexican Food?



You all know how music, travel and films inspire me to dress, but how about food? I guess that fits into the travel category, but upon spontaneously deciding to go out for excellent Mexican food last night, I knew I had to dress for the occassion. Was the shawl too on the nose?



Perhaps...and that's where a jean jacket always comes in handy.



And though gold jewelry is always my go-to and is indeed exotic, nothing is more Mexican than silver. I thought my newly acquired pure silver ring from Salt Spring Island's bountiful market fit the bill beautifully (more on my trip over the next few days, I promise!), as did the Hurache-esque sandals. Eating ethnic foods can be stylish, as well as delicious.












Shawl: Arden B; Dress + bangles: Forever 21; Ring: Salt Spring market; Bag: Mango MNG; Sandals: GoJane; Jean Jacket: Express (from swap)


Last night I had my favourite soup in the world...Tortilla Soup...though you can't beat the taste when you are actually in Mexico, I always order it without fail when ever I see it on the menu, anywhere. What's your favourite soup?

I love the dress and its vibrant colors! I am coveting your dress wardrobe right now in the summer heat. Plus, where did you get your shoes? They are adorable.

Cute dress! And homemade tomato soup, hands down.

So pretty! As usual :)

I love your hair!! Braids, in all shape and sizes and styles, are the perfect summer hairstyle - quick, easy, cute. I think I shall copy your 'do when I fly to Chicago this Sunday!

You look lovely. Nice posing places. I love the gate in the first photos, and the margarita wall. The silver ring is lovely.

Tomato Bisque.

I agree with you btw re: Wanting jobs too much. Then you put too much pressure on yourself and you totally screw up the interview. (Like I am pretty sure that I did.) But don't worry I didn't read your comment until after the interview :)

Ooh Las Margaritas! I was there just recently...love the mole oaxaqueno.

Hmm my favourite soup is anything with noodles in it--pho, udon, ramen, wonton noodle soup, chicken noodle soup. It's the perfect comfort food for a gloomy day (and lord knows we get enough of those here).
