We all know the legendary, inspiring, and beautiful artist Georgia O’Keeffe, but to actually drive hundreds of miles to experience a night at her home, in her spirit, was a once-in-a-lifetime moment. To wake up in the morning to her paintings out the window was a unique, priceless experience. My girl, Ece, was totally in the mood for a walk in her Dries kimono, which, of course, was a flashback to the amazing and stylish photos we had seen of Georgia at the O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe. While I stopped at a gas station on the way, I purchased this great, locally printed jacket so I could be part of the whole experience.
