black vinyl pants with chunky white sneakers and a bodysuit

vinyl, velvet and volte-faced

If you can’t see your face in my pants, they’re probably not tight enough (and I doubt that’s the case). Feeling sleek with a fierce display of reflective fashion. If I had a spirit animal, it would be a panther, and my wild side certainly materializes with the kind of style that effects your mood. Though, underneath it all, I’m a kitten I suppose, with a soft velvet bodysuit and underlying disposition to match. Split personality you say? Just living life fun I say. [shop: SNEAKERS] [shop: BODYSUITS] [shop:LEGGINGS] Everyone has multifaceted aspects to their core. Some more distinct than others, and some more subtle. Society tells us to be ourselves, as if it’s a singular state of being we need to force ourselves to conform to. I say, be as many versions of yourself as you think you can handle. Consistency and a strong identity have their perks. Diversity and self contradiction is more fun. A Sagittarius to the core, shifting to and from dynamics is practically second nature. Life is fluid, so why …

Parker Smith jeans review

Getting back to the basics, it’s important to remember some of the most essential elements of fashion. When working towards a capsule wardrobe, identifying key repeat-pieces is of the essence. What could be more quintessential than a pair of jeans? In this Parker Smith jeans review, I’m going to cover a personal favorite brand that has now held my loyalty for years in providing the perfect fitting jeans (no, they haven’t paid me to write this). Owning dozens of pairs myself, and also sharing with friends and family, it’s a staple item that I wear in my real life scenarios nearly every day, making them well worth a place in your wardrobe. Managing a minimalist fashion blog, I’m not always able to share some of my everyday basics. But, basics are those capsule wardrobe items that you can wear the most – and the most important investment pieces in your closet. I couldn’t hold this one back any longer. About Parker Smith jeans First, a bit about the brand, Parker Smith. Parker Smith is a …

sweat pants and sneaker fashion

sweatpants and sneakers

Currently 38° in Nashville, TN. Back on the road again shooting a promo real for OTBT shoes and visiting some friends along the way. Filming starts at 9:00am, and the predicted forecast is 22°. Goodbye camera hand, you’re about to get frostbite and die. Crazy makes me seek comfort, so I thought I’d share one of my less stylish vices, sweats and sneakers. (What I wish I was wearing next to my fireplace tomorrow). In my defense, sweats and sneakers are making a comeback on the fashion scene, with nostalgic sportswear brand favorites like Champion, Puma and Adidas thriving in the era of athleisure. But it’s not sportswear that sets this fashion trend apart. Sweats themselves (non-athletic wear) are no longer for lazy days at home, they’re actually in vogue. Don’t believe me? I’ve spent the past 2 weeks collecting hundreds of celeb spottings and outfit ideas in the once frowned upon fashion clichés in chic streetwear galore. Check out my Pinterest board for the deets. In the meantime, here’s the scoop on this hot …

luxury fashion capsule wardrobe tips

this is where I leave you

The past couple of months have been an arduous challenge in time management, making a personal oasis essential for survival. It’s been overwhelming at times, but then I often think that’s what I live for. Moving into a new house, undertaking new challenges, and shifting towards some fresh starts has all but kept me in flight at any moment of the day. But at last, my new home has come together, with a beautiful open studio space for my work and plenty of space designed exquisitely for myself. The transition was difficult, as change often is. New beginnings are also an end, and many aspects of that evolution were bittersweet. But endings should not be sad. Rather, they should be a celebration of something beautiful. The past does not melt into the abyss, part of it stays with us forever. I am forever grateful for the places and experiences that I came from, for each moment in the present time, and the continuation to the imminent future ahead. photography:ME | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | …
