A few years ago my friend Geral gifted me a vintage newsboy hat her mom had found in a thrift store. I’ve been wanting to wear it but could not get one image out of my head: J.Lo circa 2002. Not that I have anything against Jenny from the block, but it certainly wouldn’t feel like myself.

Finally got around to wearing it with leopard print and glitter hoping to look more 70s than early 2000s, less country and more disco. Not sure what category this outfit falls into, but I kinda like how it confuses me.

 Went to my mom’s hometown, El Progreso, for an interview about my blog at a local television show and took these pictures on my way back home. We stopped at what seemed like an abandoned stable and as I “posed” for the shots, we were greeted by a guard and his very. sharp. machete. Might’ve been the glitter heels that convinced him I wasn’t a criminal, but he gave us a smile and  let us proceed.

I already have my eye on one of the bf’s flat caps for an outfit inspired by this lovely man (picture from an old post):

    You look lovely! I love newsboy hats, but it definitely takes some skill to keep them updated, I think. And you did a great job! The heels, too, are out of this world!
