I got the opportunity to do an Instagram meetup with Kandace Banks, who is starting up her website (which will feature fashion, events, etc.) in the upcoming new year. Together, we worked together to help each other with our own projects and portfolio.
We explored Brookland, and I got to capture some shots of her around the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. I always love playing around with light and shadows, so it was fun to have a model being immersed in with the sunlight. Follow Kandace Banks on Instagram, and keep an eye out for the launch of her website.
I’m turning this blog into a whole new direction and becoming a fashion blogger. My OOTD (stands for Outfit of the Day obviously) is this overly warm coat with missing buttons that wasn’t meant to be worn on this spring day is from Anthropologie, baggy work slacks from Zara, and basic beige flats from Gap. Really, I’m the perfect fashion blogger out there. Just kidding, April Fools!
The start of March is making me anticipate the arrival of Spring and warmer weather. Can we also excitedly proclaim that we can whip out those flowy skirts, floral, and gladiator sandals? Okay, maybe too soon? March may not be the warmest month, but it’s right before the month that we call allergy season. Sneezing and runny noses ain’t fun, but at least we’ll look cute in our new spring collection?
O N E || MADEWELL, The Cutoff Tee
As a college student, I want to be able to wake up in the morning for class without looking like a slob. It’s the struggle of finding a balance in being comfortable and looking acceptable. We all want to look great. If you want to pursue that college stereotype of wearing baggy sweatpants and Uggs, go for it. I’m not judging you. Everyone has a preference of what is comfy to them, and I usually find myself throwing on a pair of boyfriend jeans and a cutoff tee. This Madewell top is an ultra-airy blend of cotton and linen, and you will be able to pull off that effortless look.
T W O || FIFTH HARMONY, Camilla Cabello
Camilla Cabello is one/fifth of the American pop group, Fifth Harmony. Not only am I amazed at the immense amount of talent this girl band has, they are radiant with beauty and great taste in clothes. I had to put her on this because she’s my current girl crush.
T H R E E || BRANDY MELVILLE, Wylie Flannel
My friend Uriah introduced me to Brandy Melville last year, which I’m so thankful about. Walking around Soho in New York City with a friend, I found that they opened up a Brandy Melville. The store is a tad overwhelming, but the outfits are so synonymous to warm weather. Also, anything flannel is always comfy and cute. You get the best of both.
F O U R || ANTHROPOLOGIE, Marlow Raffia Booties
Anthropologie never fails when it comes to footwear. I admire their shoe collection and wish I could bring them all back home with me. These booties can go well with a flowy floral skirt or skinny jeans.
