~Tangerine~ Wk #26


IMAGINE IF YOU WILL.........................
A busy friday night, trying to get out of town, you sit in a traffic jam for about an hour on one of Southern California's major freeways. Inch by inch the grid lock barely moves, you wonder..is it worth it? Once the bottleneck opens up on the 91, its a clear drive, your destination awaits your arrival. You cant resist pushing that button where your arm is resting, the window glides down allowing a warm, sensual desert breeze to flow over you and that special someone behind the wheel. His hand reaches over to cup your knee, a wink and a grin lets you know, oh yah, its worth it. He gives your knee a gentle squeeze before his fingers leave and find the controls on the stereo. With a few pushes forward on the cd player, at first it is quiet but just the purr of the pony's V8, as you lean back in the black leather seat and close your eyes. Then the bose speakers began to thump a deep base, and the tune begins to play....



These pictures reminded me of a getaway to one of my favorite places..Palm Springs, CA. The hustle of traffic when your driving the 91 freeway to get there. But that warm desert breeze is something you never forget once your there. You wake up to a canopy of palm trees outside your suite door, where the backdrop is a crystal blue sky, hugged by the San Gorgonio mountains. A day spent by the pool, your cabana hunk (that you keep peeking at behind those wayfarers) bringing you drinks. A nap to sleep off Antonio's famous margaritas, and warm evenings in an outside restaurant on Palm Canyon Drive, dining beneath a starlit sky.
I am not sure if tangerine ever looked or felt so good, but this weeks *COLOR CHALLENGE*  has me longing for a weekend getaway. Wanna come with me? =)

I love how tangerine seems to bring in the summer love hippy out in everyone, each in their own style! <3

I adore the way the hat, jewelry and the straps on the dress's middle all work together~
