Joggers & Johnny Rockets

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

It's a rare occasion when Nick and myself actually get a day off together. We live together, so a lot of people probably assume we see enough of each other. But with crazy opposite schedules, it really makes us appreciate a full day off together. We started our Sunday afternoon at the Burlington Mall, since they had 25% off everything at their Newbury Comics. And we can't pass up discount movies and vinyl!

I kept my outfit super comfy & laid back. I didn't want an uncomfortable outfit to take away from a great day. This skirt is perfect to wear many ways, but with just a basic tee shirt, you look chic effortlessly chic. And of course, I love throwing a chunky necklace on with plain tees!

My Outfit:
Basic Tee: H&M // Lace Skirt: Forever 21

Nick's Joggers: American Eagle // Button-up: J-Crew

Other favorites from "Lolita"

Wednesday, September 3, 2014

And of course, here are some more favorites. So hard to pick just a few photos when they are all so amazing! Couldn't be happier with this look-book.

Senior Collection: Lolita

Here it is! My look-book for my Senior Collection "Lolita." My friend Steph Larsen & myself had talked about planning a look-book for quite some time. Working with Steph is such a dream. We took the time to brainstorm together, making sure the atmosphere was just a whimsical as the garments themselves. It was actually pretty easy since we knew what the other was expecting which really allowed us the opportunity to really feed off of each other. My collection was inspired from vintage laces and from the book "Lolita" by Vladimir Nabokov. Steph even added quotes from the book which help add to the feel of the look-book. After scouting, styling, planning a date, and collaborating with models & a makeup artist, we were able to have a successful day of shooting, despite the ridiculous pouring rain that almost made us cancel. Thank goodness we didn't! Seriously can't wait for the next one with Steph!

Stay tuned for another batch of photos with my favorite shots that didn't make the cut for the look-book but are still absolutely amazing.

Seeking Inspiration.

Monday, September 1, 2014

Here's a quick look into a few things I've been seeking my inspiration from. Some day's you just need a little something to encourage you to work on a project. I've been in some serious need of that encouragement. I've been digging metallics and faux fur, which I'm thinking are going to be huge this season. I cannot wait! I always love a little fur. Burgundy is back, of course. And also, forget about the LBD, the LWD (lace white dress) is still taking over for the rest of the season and definitely here to stay.
