Once upon a time, I was a little kid who only ate burgers if they came with an Orange Crush. My dad was the biggest fan of orange sodas and, let's face it, Orange Crush is the best out there (I don't care if people tell me I'm drinking colorant), I love it. Guess I appreciate it even more since it reminds me of the happier days of my childhood.

I was at the supermarket recently and saw this imported OC bottle, it's so pretty and cool and not expensive at all. It was a no brainer, I had to have it; and that inspired me to create a look based around it. When I was a kid, I always dressed in matching t-shirts and shorts with little boot sneakers. This look is loosely based on that, I don't dress like that anymore (or do I? Hmm...).

Anyhow, it's a way to say that I embrace my inner kid everyday and, also, pay tribute to the little Henry I was back in the day since he is a huge part of who I am today. Please, readers, take a little time to think about what were you like a few years ago and compare it to who you are right now, it's a cool mental exercise. 

// Hace mucho, mucho tiempo, yo era un niño que sólo comía hamburguesas si estaban acompañadas por un Orange Crush. Mi papá era el aficionado más grande de los refrescos de naranja y, seamos honestos, Orange Crush es el mejor que hay (no me importa si la gente dice que estoy tomando colorante), lo amo. Supongo que lo aprecio mucho más porque me recuerda los días felices de mi infancia. 

Recientemente estuve en el supermercado y vi esta botella importada de OC, tan bonita y buena onda y nada cara. No pude resistirme, tenía que tenerla. Eso me inspiró a crear un atuendo basado a su alrededor. Cuando era niño, siempre me vestía en conjuntitos de short y playera con tennis de bota. Este look está ligeramente basado en eso, ya no me visto así (¿o lo hago? Mmm...).

En fin, es una forma de decir que abrazo a mi niño interno todos los días y, también, le rindo tributo al pequeño Henry que existió allá en el día, porque él es gran parte de quien soy ahora. Por favor, lectores, tomen un poquito de su tiempo para pensar en cómo eran hace un par de años y comparen eso con quiénes son ahora, es un ejercicio mental buena onda.
