Struggle #ootd

The nightly struggle of trying to get Internet....my gma doesn't have internet or even quite knows what it is. I'm currently living in the 50s (but ill get into that later). I have to sit strategically in the perfect spot on my bed to use my neighbor's Internet, which I even got permission for! When all else fails there's a blogger app. Anyways! Sorry for the lack of posts! I have some great pics to post at some point from last Friday when my mom and I bopped all over the city and then laid like lizards on the beach for the days following. Until then, here are some outfits of the day or as Instagram likes to say #ootd

New Updates!!

As requested by one of my readers, I've added a new and easy feature to the blog! On the right hand column titled "All Fashion Dilemmas!", feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, concerns you might have! (You can always comment at the bottom of each post if you don't mind the rest of the readers to see, too!) I would LOVE to hear any and all things fashion related, or heck, anything life related! My aunt does tell me I could be a therapist in another life ;)

Also, be looking for new photoshoot pics soon!! Thank god Jamie (my Knoxville photographer) has a best friend photographer, Danielle, who lives in the city. I love that the photoshoots can be beneficial for building my styling portfolio and my blog, while building her photography portfolio at the same time. Danielle and I met up this past Sunday to do a shoot in Central Park along with her boyfriend Alex to help out! What we thought would be a fairly straight-forward afternoon turned into quite the adventure. We didn't quite realize that Sunday also happened to be the National Puerto Rico Parade. Of course, all the areas we had planned on shooting were blocked off for "crowd control". However, I think we were able to get some great shots and got to explore a bit more of the park. By exploring, I also mean shimmying illegally across a ledge into a swampy area and attempting to bribe a "park ranger" to let us into a blocked area. After a very eventful afternoon, we were determined to get a frozen margarita and ventured another 17 blocks to find one. Thank god, it was worth it! Can't wait to see how the pictures come out. Until then, here's a few instagrams of the days events.

Hamptons Photoshoot

The true title: Lost on a roadtrip to the Hamptons. It wasn't until I had the whole outfit on I realized how "Hamptons Inspired" it looked. Even more so, you never would've guessed I was a neutrals person. I swear working at J.Crew pushed me to move out of my neutral hippie zone into experimenting with a preppier style. When I look at this background, my first thought would probably be all white outfit. BUT, I love the contrast of the colors in this look with the dull and somewhat desolate background. Who doesn't love a good juxtaposition? The best part: the majority of these poses I did while being my awkwardly goofy self, and yet, they came out looking great. Jamie King, I cannot say it enough, you're a genius.


P.S. For all you online shoppers, each item in my outfit is labeled at the bottom. Click and it will link you to the exact item or something similar. The sweater and shorts are on sale, and if you click on the necklace link, welcome to one of my favorite jewelry sites, baublebar.com!
