Outfit of the Day: Atlanta Adventures with Lindsay Thomaston

My fellow anxious babes, you would be so proud of me. I not only shot outfit photos in another city, but I shot with a brand new photographer that I’d never met before! This may seem small, but if you have social anxiety, this is a huge fucking deal.

Five iPhone Photo-Editing Apps to Up Your Instagram Game

I’ve made it my mission to put more effort into my photos. Having a lot of time to myself these past six months since my major break-up (I can’t believe it’s been that long!), I rekindled a variety of my interests–most notably, my love of photography. I’m notorious for going on these Pinterest “sprees” where I fill my boards with beautiful editorial shots and eccentric-but-cute Tokyo street style looks–because let’s be real, there’s no fashion like Japanese fashion–but as much as I like curating my own space where I can cite inspiration for my next creative project, I realized that I wasn’t contributing my own work as much as I’d like to due to time constraints and not having my camera accessible at all times.

Outfit of the Day: Blue Wig

First things first, I’d like to wish all of you a Happy New Year! Jordan and I were both exhausted from moving into our new apartment on New Year’s Eve, but we managed to make it all the way to the midnight champagne toast at our friends’ house party, so I’m pretty proud of us even if we were in bed by 12:15.

Outfit of the Day: Retro Spring Style

I’m so sorry to have been on hiatus for so long! But good things are in store:  I finally bought a DSLR camera + tripod + remote. Which means I’ll no longer be using my shotty iPhone camera for outfit shots, and I won’t have to rely on anyone to take photos for me anymore. (Plus, I’m really awkward when I have pictures taken by other people, kind of like that episode of Friends when Chandler has trouble naturally smiling in photos).

My awkward factor didn’t completely dissapate in these photos, as Jordan and I were on the way to dinner, and I asked Jordan to take a few shots of my outfits. I’d say he did a damn good job for a first timer; he was so into taking pictures that he kept taking them the rest of dinner. He took some pretty unsightly photos of me eating that’ll make their place in a scrapbook one day.

We’ve finally got some Spring weather down in Charleston. I’ve been aching for this moment since I first started buying pastel dresses and sandals in January (I like to plan ahead). I went into Forever 21 after work the other day, and I swooned over this strawberry print blouse. Isn’t it just perfect for Spring? They didn’t have a small (*insert cry-face*), but the oversized fit allowed me to size up to a medium without the blouse looking completely weird. I may ask my friend Marie if she wants to go strawberry-picking again this year; now I’m getting a photo theme in mind (I’m such a dork).
I’m also a big fan of contrast in my outfits. When wearing something loose & flowing up top, I prefer to wear a tighter fit on the bottom. It really brings attention to my figure (yowsas!) and creates a balance to the ensemble.  The airiness of the shirt is a great juxtaposition to the weight of the denim below.

 Outfit Details:
Strawberry Blouse – Forever 21
Super High-Waisted Jean Shorts – eBay
Flower Crown – DIY
Platform Shoes – ModCloth
Fox Ring – Forever 21
Scallop Bag – ASOS

 

 

Every time I wear these shorts, I feel like I should be on the set of Now & Then–not to mention paired with my curly pixie cut. Retro chic, baby!
I hope everyone had a nice holiday. The kids around here are on Spring Break this week, so I have a feeling that I’ll be seeing a lot of action at work in the next few days. I’ll be sure to make time for posts though, honest!
‘Til next time, kittens.
