LOOK OF THE DAY: My Tribute To My Unforgettable "Skippy"





















I know it's been a while since my last outfit post and this time I wanted to do something different than just a fashionable outfit. My friend Skip passed away a month ago and he had a huge passion for horses and was a professional english horseback rider. I remember he wanted me to do a photoshoot with his horses and unfortunately we never got around to do it :(
So today wanted to pay a tribute to him!! the horses featured are his and the photos were taken at his barn. What I'm wearing is the "English Horseback Riding" gear and this is what he would wear for his competitions and this was his specialty.

The last photo of me kissing the Coke Zero is by far my favorite!! this was his favorite and the only thing he would drink. :)  I LOVE N WILL MISS YOU FOREVER SKIPPY. I hope you enjoyed this pictures as they were taken by the Love of your life! With all of our love to you!


P!NK POSITIVE & P!NK BEAUTIFUL!!!!

  69. Wow this is such a memorable shoot and it's so touching you took the time to make this tribute and you'll always remember him with this. I remember sadly reading about your friend passing. I like that you wore traditional riding gear, which I've always thought it so chic anyway. You look really pretty.

Your friend really did sound like such a wonderful person. I believe in heaven and I know he made it up there. Him and his horsey will now be looking over you :)
