For the love of Frida

I've always admired Frida Kahlo's art. I love the colours and the passion in every piece. Although i know some of them are pretty graphic! I watched the movie Frida a few years ago (starring Salma Hayek, who was amazing) and was fascinated by her complex character. However, i was most impressed with the stunning home and studio she lived in. It's open to the public in Mexico, so i think it's one of those places i'll have to visit at some point (in the hopefully more wealthy future!). The deep vivid blue paint on the courtyard walls and then gorgeous pots of geraniums in front, is a garden to just be enchanted by.



So you can imagine my excitement when i stepped into Zara and found this:

£17.99 - what a bargain! I couldn't wait to bring it home and put it on. Happy sunny summer days!
