some days can be classic

So this wardrobe combo isn’t particularly in my preferred choice of adorning myself. Though nothing is inherently wrong with it. In fact, I find it to be a quite pleasant combo – it’s just not very “me”. The shoot was for a corporate project for one of our brands, Nicole Shoes. Classy, sophisticated, homey. I tend to lean towards modern, minimal, and even a bit cold. So needless to say this left me feeling a bit froo-froo by the time we wrapped the day up. Many times in the fashion industry, one has to become flexible with adopting a unique persona for the brands or items they will be representing. And to be quite good, one must actually put themselves aside and “become” that person. After all, if you want to convince someone else, you’re going to have to be convinced yourself! Which can leave one feeling a bit like a disorientated chameleon. Blogging, I’m refreshed to find to be the complete opposite. Here, one has the freedom to express yourself fully, completely, and unconditionally. The clearer version of yourself you become, …

fall in florida

Finally got around to sorting through the photos from my recent trip to Florida to visit Nick (my big brother). Allow me to be mushy for a moment – my family is so important to me, and I love them to pieces! I have two brothers, and I am so happy to share that we are truly best friends. Moving on (as you roll your eyes) it’s wonderful to get away to a place that’s still warm and able to bake your skin at this time of the year. And it was a great excuse to get one more wear out of some summer favorites (though let’s not lie, these slides are going to be worn until my toes freeze off). Things I wore that I didn’t photo – shorts, boring tank tops, and more slides. Don’t judge me, it’s the beach. I was on vacation. And if you’re in the Tampa area, allow me to recommend Miguel’s Cafe if you’re in the mood for some hearty Mexican brunch. What is Mexican brunch… think Mimosas, …

bad siding

I know, I know – the location for these photos is terrible. But that’s just where I happened to be, and had to post because I’m in love with this new sweater. It continues to be a rainy and dark week (daylight savings, usually I despise you – but I’m ready for you to show up any day now). Weather may be most universally wardrobe defining influences – sweaters and baggy jeans here we all come. And do pardon my lazy hair day. photography: KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | sweater:SIONI | jeans:LEVI’S | boots:BACIO61

apparently jogging

Happy Friday followers. I don’t know about you but I was ready to make a dash out of the office no sooner than I had arrived. And apparently this ootd is just perfect to do so. I got asked twice at work if I was on my way out for a quick run. Which means I take sports influence way too seriously, or maybe it just really hasn’t caught on in this tiny town in Virginia yet. Either way, jog or not (let’s be honest, I prefer not) I’m feeling pretty content and ready to take on the weekend in my Nike track jacket and Dimmi trainers. – Sooner rather than later. photography: KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | dress:SILENCE+NOISE | track jacket:NIKE | sneakers:DIMMI
