Haven’t done one of these posts in a while so I thought I’d share the muted tones that have been on my mind lately. I’ve been trying to live more simply these days (which basically means less clutter, less need of more stuff) and perhaps that’s why I’ve been drawn to monochromatic schemes. Though I can’t deny that pop of color which always seems to complete things!
I finally got to visit my beautiful kindred spirit Diane in Chicago last week, and I was so happy to be reunited with her! We share many loves, one of being taking photos of each other. Haha! But really. I love taking photos of this girl because she just looks so great! Especially her style. For example:
I miss her already! Also, isn’t her bag so wonderful?! The color is gorgeous.
From the first outfit:
Shirt – Urban Outfitters
Pants – F21
Bag- Royal Republiq
And some shots of what I wore whilst in Chicago:
1. Skirt from Steven Alan, Frye boots
2. Madewell Shirt, J.Crew pants, and Marc by Marc Jacob bag.
Got a chance to take some headshots of my absolutely lovely friend, Sarah. I like to call this series “Future President of Everything.” Still very much learning on how to use my camera, but it’s been such a fun process! Thanks, Sarah, for letting me photograph you!!
I’m beginning to love Cinco de Mayo more and more. Birthdays are sometimes tough, because they’re ridden with high expectations to have a bomb-diggity day, and most often those expectations are entwined with a bit/in my case, alot of sneaky entitlement. But this year I have had such a blessed time celebrating. I celebrated with the beautiful friends that I am undeservedly blessed with, I celebrated with gusto because I am thrilled to be alive and well, I celebrated because I have been fortunate enough to see, hear, smell and know the beginnings of twenty-two. I felt free to celebrate because I’m realizing more and more that all that I have has been graciously given by a Father that loves so, so well.
Even though this picture is unflattering and my chin protrudes with a tad too much enthusiasm, I hope this is the posture I can take in many of the different transitions that will come this year. In unrelenting joy, in unabashed freedom, in true gratefulness. Thank you all, and all thanks to You!
