relax, we’ll be alone here

One of the biggest challenges in fashion blogging has been finding just the right place to shoot. I do not reside along side a European cobblestone pathway, nor do I have the sandy beaches and palms of CA with crashing salt waves in my backyard (or even remotely nearby). Virginia is home. And blogging doesn’t bring home the bacon (I do love bacon). I work 8:00-6:00+ at my big girl job. So a typical shoot involves me dashing out the door scrambling to find a blank wall before the last light has disappeared (thank you summer sun, you’ve been the best). To discover this solitude place of cold symmetry – I was in stone heaven. Wearing my newest pair of jeggings from Denimocracy paired with a Mango oversized shirt. This was from my first order with Mango, and I must say, I like it a lot. The shoot itself was a multi-tasker. These photos will also be used to promote our new shoe line AXXIOM. Focused on budget friendly comfort presented in a simple way – this brand …

a minimalist somedays

If you follow this blog regularly, you probably already know I’m a huge fan of minimalistic blogs Modern Legacy and Love Aesthetics (to name just a couple). The crisp aesthetics with a stark contrast in monochrome schemes makes my heart skip – and I can’t look away. The minimalist community has always held a part of me captive. From living in micro houses, to a deliberate constriction in wardrobe and lifestyle – it’s really quite beautifully fascinating. And, I’ve given the thought of conversion some serious consideration. I imagine the metamorphose as an enlightening experience, shedding past burdens, and flooding life with new meaning – transcending the old into a more pure version of oneself. Rebirth. Then I realize I’d have to get rid of all of my stuff… I’ll settle with being a minimalist somedays. And few of my favorite stuffs being worked on the blog today. These new Denimocracy skinnies with an insane amount of stretch make these a new staple item (even if I was a minimalist). Made in CA, and probably one of the most comfortable items I own – you’ll …

pumps before utility

Just got back from a short hop in Florida to visit my brother. My flight was delayed on the way… by 6 hours. 6 HOURS. The gate attendants offered all of the stranded would-be-passenger’s pizza for their long-suffering. How kind. Don’t get me wrong, who would be cross at them – they’re not in control of the flight. To the angry people shouting at the poor girls… go to h***. And keep your mouths shut, you’re making the poor girl cry. And learn to relax. However, do remind me to never fly Allegiant again. (enough of my rant) Well the good news is, I had plenty of time to dally, so Instagram became my best friend of the day. Sorry if I over blasted you guys with posts on that front. Just know you were a part of the bigger picture saving of my sanity. (if it’s not already too late for that) OOTD: Sorry had to use the very impossibly cliche acronym. I just learned what it was… at the airport… during my 6 …
