Hola amigos!

September is here! It's a new day, a new month and a beautiful day! As I sip on my morning coffee and ponder (I know it's almost noon :D), I realize I have so much going on in my life right now! For starters, I have so many meetings to attend today! :(

On that note, today I am going to tell you a thing or two about the Aztecs! Since 2013, this print has rocked the fashion world. You can get dresses, skirts, tops, socks and even nail polish in this print! But who are the Aztecs? They were a small group of people in Mexico who spoke the Nahuatl language from the 14th to 16th centuries. They were the rulers of large parts of Mesoamerica.

The word "aztec" was derived from the Nahuatl words aztecatl and aztecah which mean "people from Aztlan". Aztlan is a mythological place for people speaking this language and centuries later this word was used to define folks from Mexico. Basically these prints consists of symbols that could mean anything, names or titles, date and time, events, buildings etc.

Living the high life
Keep believing and never give up.
Right is always right!
I drink to the confusion of our enemies.
Yes. No. Maybe, so.
The most important things are the hardest to say.
Cradled in love
Absolutely stunned!
Because if the music is good, you dance.
Black and yellow
Wind and breeze, gotta love them.
Another brick in the wall
Love yourself.
Don't wait for opportunities. Create it!
You are somebody's reason to smile.
This time I am looking straight ahead!
That just looking away could save you the stress
Don't wake me up
Can't keep my hands to myself
Although today most manufacturers of this print are not the original inventors of the style, it has become popular nevertheless. But it is definitely important to know the history and significance of these cultural artifacts.

I styled this amazing skater dress from Atmosphere with heels and long ear-rings and just some casual flats. Hope you like the pictures!
