In My Mind I'm On A Picnic & Why You Should Mix Prints More Often
Today's look I wanted to incorporate Gingham with Herringbone prints together. My inspiration behind this look instead of pornstars this time is a picnic. Gingham as a print is not only widely used for fashion. It is used a lot in restaurants, especially Italian but also corner shop pizza joints to name a few. Usually in red and white to make you hungry for food. I'm not big into color so my kind of picnic is black and white. Now that I've styled this look I'm dying to take myself on an actual picnic not just be inspired by one. I find the highest form of romance is to romance one's self. Get dressed up and take yourself on an adventure.

My entire look today was all found here in Tijuana, Baja California. All from street shops and flea markets. I'm personally starting to outgrow Tijuana. I've been here for a bit over a year now. I'm looking forward to soon discovering a new part of Mexico that is further away from the direct impact of the U.S.A and more authentic to Mexican culture.
Style hack. The one thing I can say though is that this town is where I really got my looks together. I was able to find great quality clothes here for less than a quarter of the retail price. The one good thing I can say about TJ is that if your into vintage clothing and off sales this is your wet dream. It's worth the trip just to go shopping if your close to the border or passing through this area. Don't go to the tourist area's. Skip off the beaten path and pop into street shops in residential neighborhoods. Look for the clothes hanging on gates of homes. That is where you will find gold if your there before the good stuff is gone.
