Food Fashion and Flow: Dindi   

Monday, March 24, 2014


Happy Monday! How was your weekend?I know you are probably wondering what the blog post title means. Dindi is the name of a Brazilian jazz song that I love. for my fellow jazz aficionados this is a Bossa Nova classic made famous by Astrud Gilberto and has been covered by everyone from Frank Sinatra to El Debarge. It is soothing and relaxing and has such great lyrics which are usually song in Portuguese and in English. I listen to a lot of Bossa Nova and can carry a tune pretty well in Portuguese from listening to it for so many years. I have a quirky habit of listening to beautiful music in other languages:-)
Outside it is a little colder than it has been the past week and it looks gloomy, but my mood is peaceful and relaxed. Spring is a time of newness and I am looking forward to this season. The weather has been so nice lately and I am looking forward to going to a friends clambake that is coming up soon. Those are always a lot of fun! And I am planning a birthday party for my son who turns 7 this weekend. My how time flies!

Today I am wearing a good ensemble for unpredictable weather and a classic staple, which is a white shirt and jeans. Since the weather is starting to get warmer, I may have to put these boots up soon. Do you wear your boots all year round?

White Shirt: Macys, Jeans: Macys, Scarf: LA Fashion District, Bag: c/o Mimi Boutique, Boots: Matisse Footwear

I love this gorgeous croco bag from Mimi Boutique. They have such gorgeous accessories and the color of this bag pairs well with so many items in my wardrobe

I definitely have a scarf obsession to match my shoe and handbag obsession. Do you like scarves?

My friend that I mentioned a couple of weeks ago is continuing to do better and is home recovering from her hospital stay, so she is well on her way to being back to her usual self.  And lots of good things are happening in the lives of some of my other friends, so we have been having fun celebrating. I am just happy that they take me along for the ride:-) 
It is a blessing to have friends that want to be a blessing and want to see you reach your destiny. And there is no competition or jealousy between us only love and support. Those types of friends are very rare, but I am happy that I have them in my life. As you get older your inner circle does seem to get smaller, but it is quality over quantity. You may hear me brag on them from time to time, but they are truly the best!
 I am feeling good about this year. How has it been for you so far?

Have an amazing day!

Your posts are always overflowing with positivity and uplifting. I am happy for you that you're able to surround yourself with such a terrific group of friends. I'm lucky to have those kinds of people in my life. Unfortunately pretty much all of them have moved away but almost every weekend it seems one or the other is back in town.
