I decided to mix it up a little bit this week with this post. I had a little photographic playdate with my dear friend Cadence Meeks, and we walked around the beautiful neighborhoods near my home and fell in love with the one that you see behind me. We weren’t sure if anybody lived there (I have a tendency to invade abandoned spaces), but the outside was beautiful, with the paint peeling all over and vines swallowing the entire side of the house. It was the perfect way to spend a brisk Arizona December afternoon.
The outfit that I am wearing is a staple favorite of mine, and a very meaningful one. I have worn this combination since I was in early high school, and I find that it consistently reflects who I am, no matter what type of style I have an affinity for at the time: the pairing of vintage floral dresses with a cool jacket layered on top. This particular vintage dress is my favorite; I bought it at a little shop called Meat Market Vintage a couple of years ago. I bought it during a period of my life where I was feeling extremely depressed and struggling to understand who I am as a human being, and I think of it every time I put it on. It serves as a little materialistic reminder that, even in the strangest of times, the person you really are is always in the back of your mind.
I paired this little number with my TOPSHOP leather bomber jacket, and DOLCE VITA platforms (still not over them!). My black onyx ring is by NIKDREAMER. If I could wear and shoot this again, I would have worn nylons.
Stay in touch for tomorrow – I have another outfit waiting for you! xoxo
