What's the Fun in Playing it Safe? I Think I'd Rather Misbehave.


I've always wanted to do a shoot in a laundromat, but never quite got around to it...well that is, until now. A couple Saturdays ago, DJ and I spent the day shooting around my neighborhood. We must have looked like crazy fools to everyone around us, especially since there were multiple outfit changes, but there was something so liberating about just not caring what anyone around was thinking. Thus, it only seemed natural that we end our day with a shoot in a laundromat. While everyone else was busy washing and drying, we were busy letting our creativity flourish. It was such a fun shoot, that I'm already thinking about the next unconventional place to snap some pictures. Any ideas?

I'd also like to give a special thank you to JewelMint for allowing me to pick a couple pieces to style and feature on my blog! I am a huge necklace junkie, so after I saw the Astoria Necklace, there was no way I couldn't pick it. There's no doubt I was excited while picking out my necklace on the JewelMint site, butI was even more thrilled when I received my beautiful necklace in person. If there's one thing you should know about me, it's that I love statement pieces. The Astoria Necklace is the perfect accessory to give any outfit that extra oomph. Make sure you guys all check out JewelMint if you're in need of some fabulous accessories! This post is part one of a two part series, so be sure to come back soon for a second serving! Also, big thanks to dj.lan for her amazing photog skills!

Sorry things have been a bit slow paced on the blog. I'm definitely trying to keep up, but there have been a lot of changes going on! For now, I hope you'll all remain patient, but I do promise that I will be updating more frequently as soon as things slow down a bit.

Pretty strong pics you've (and he) taken. Like the shoulder pads, for some reason, haha. Great look, as always, and good-looking necklace as well~
