Hey there! I'm gonna go ahead and attribute this look to Shell B Cheri, the fantastic stylist I had the pleasure of working with a few months ago. As for the pictures, I'll go right ahead and say thanks again to Stephanie, who took these for me when she was in town last weekend. I absolutely freaked having a profesh photog to myself and we took as many sets of photos as we could muster in one day (here's the first set on the blog.)
| lipstick: MAC in St. Germain | necklace: H&M | tank: Gap | kimono: F21 via Carina | pants: Old Navy | shoes: Payless |
My goal for my session with Shell B was to style pieces I love and wanted to wear, but had trouble with. Namely, these cargo pants and this kimono top (I've worn them on the blog here and here.)
And when in doubt on how to style things...pair them together! Ok that probably works out like, 1% of the time, and here's an example of that. I like the contrast of the rougher cargo pants with the flowy florals of the top.
Shell B and I put together probably a dozen ideas for looks. The nice thing is, I hung them back in my closet as full ensembles, and since I've been house-sitting and running back and forth, they've made for pretty easy grab & go outfits! Normally when I'm rushing to pick out clothes, I end up with things that are really weird or really simple, either way nothing I'm excited about.
I need to "pre-style" more often!
Forever my Beyonce shoes! I can't wear them without thinking about her.
Speaking of (I mean...I'm really always speaking of Beyonce), WHO watched the VMA's last night?? I actually watched the whole thing, super enjoyed it, and live-tweeted throughout. Plus Beyonce did a medley of her entire new album, nbd. And then Jay and Blue presented her with an award and she was crying, I was crying, it was a magic moment.
We took these right outside of a laundromat, where there were totally people doing their laundry, and I didn't even break pose! I think these are serious strides as a fashion blogger.
Oh and then there was a motorcycle there. I mean...providence! I can't take myself too seriously with these pictures of me posing in front of a motorcyle, but it made for a fun prop.
I hope your week is off to a great start! Yesterday I was thinking, "A Sunday well spent brings a week of content." (- not sure who to credit for that) I had a well spent Sunday so I'm ready for a week of content. Thanks for reading!!
