The Colors Of Summer
The temperatures have reached the high 90's the last few days in Northern California, and I couldn't be happier. I've been craving the heat after such a long and wet Winter and Spring.
One of the many reasons I look forward to the hot days of summer is the opportunity to add color to my usually neutral wardrobe. I'm always drawn to colorful prints with a Moroccan and Indian flair.
Being part Indian myself (my mother was from Kashmir), and literally growing up in my mother's clothing design studio, I was surrounded by the most beautiful Indian fabrics in every color imaginable. I remember wrapping myself in pretty pastels and sauntering down the runway my mother had in the middle of her studio and pretending I was a princess on the way to a fancy ball...
My favorite look for summer is always something blousy and airy, maybe with delicate straps on the shoulders or half sleeves...in soft cotton or linen.
Or a flowy, half sleeve dresses or blouse with Indian block printing.
Or something pink...always a big hit with my 8 year old daughter India...
