I've been wanting to travel out of the country this summer, but work and moving to the Midwest has postponed these plans. A diving trip to the Yucatan is possibly in store for summer 2013. Until then, I can enjoy hidden spaces reminiscent of tropical travels around my neighborhood. A vintage midi skirt with lions peeking out of ferns was my attire for a Saturday spent in downtown San Francisco. The skirt reminds me of a little bit of Miami Vice and a little bit of Reno- the best kind of skirt for the summer.
