COWGIRL

_MG_9932_MG_9972_MG_9951_MG_9959_MG_9962wearing: lizzy hat from capital iron, thrifted & shorts shirt, necklace from decade, dad’s belt, roots backpack, born boots from the cobbler

I love how these cowboy boots look when paired with shorts or a skirt. Somehow they manage not to shorten my legs and the light leather matches most of my brown belts and beloved Roots backpack. Today I’m going to try and make some Canadian themed shorts for Canada Day this Monday. Spray paint and glitter are involved. Stay tuned.

Lots of love,

THE FARM

_MG_9803 _MG_9901_MG_9840 _MG_9850 _MG_9893wearing: Lizzy Hat from Capital Iron, thrifted shirt, Forever 21 Skirt, necklace from Decade, assorted bangles, Born Boots from the Cobbler, Roots Backpack

I got this skirt in December and everything about it screams winter, so to challenge myself I decided to make a summer ensemble starring it and its majestic pleats. Enjoy.

These pictures were taken on my Nana’s farm, or simply “the farm” as my family calls it. The place is magical – some of my best childhood memories took place there. There were always epic soccer matches that only ended when it was twilight and croquet games that somehow managed to be interesting, but ping pong was by far the fiercest sport played. All sports aside, the best part was always seeing my aunts, uncles and cousins. Catching up with their lives over a box of chocolates, acting out funny stories, playing Skip-Bo, feeding the horses – everything seemed to happen over at “the farm.”

Most of the time I’m just as interested in the background of personal style blogs as much as the clothes. The location of the shoot tells the story of the clothes. I’m always somewhat disappointed when I pick up a fashion magazine and their editorial was just done in a studio. Where’s the sense of adventure? I would rather see that same model on the streets of New York or in front of a majestic waterfall in Brazil or on the cobblestone streets of a European village. I think this is why I love blogs, because every day I get to visit a different place in pictures and the background is always interesting.

Lots of love,
