As summer sets in, we’ve have a little Latin love on our minds and can’t help but daydream of getaways to blue water beaches of Mexico; Machu Picchu, Peru, for some epic hikes and colorful textiles; and Buenos Aires for sexy summer tangos.  And of course, what would Latin love mean without Frida Kahlo?  Naturally, the crown of flowers that she so beautifully wore in her hair as well as the vivid, breathtaking colors and cultural influences she used in her work were the starting point of inspiration for this Journal Entry titled The Summer of Love (or El Verano de Amor) by Joanna & Simone.  Below is the completed entry and we invite you to take part in our process by visiting Simone’s blog here.
