I'm on a boat! Just kidding. I'm on a parklet, but it looks like the interior of a boat, no? Non-sequiturs, aside, these are the rest of the shots from my day with Melissa. On this day, we shot some hair shots (you saw them, here), had brunch at one of my favorite neighborhood spots, Marengo on Union, and caught up with some girl talk and coffee in the sun. Going back to Marengo - they've got mean chicken and waffle sliders, legit biscuits and bomb Bloody Marys. We got there early and were able to sneak a seat in the back patio - talk about your perfect morning. Even better? It was 90 degrees out! In hindsight, wearing all black probabbbbbly wasn't the best idea. Was I hot? Yes. But, I was really excited to wear some of my new finds from my event the weekend before with Teen Vogue at Stoneridge Mall. I came out like a bandit that day - a couple new pairs of jeans, some fall staples (jacket, poncho, hat) and a rocking new pair of flats. You'll undoubtedly see many of these pieces on rotation coming up on the blog (or on my Instagram), but the first full outfit feature is this ole post right here.

I'd been wanting to invest in some new denim for a while, especially a nice black pair. I walked into Nordstrom and walked out with this amazing pair of Paige denim cropped jeans. They're absurdly soft and amazingly comfortable. I'm already planning to get another pair. I love that they're easy to take from day to night - from casual to dressy with just a swap of the shoes! Coming out of the day, I also walked away with this lace top from Macy's. I wore it here with a cami under, but we'll see the other ways in which I can wear it.
My day at Simon of Stoneridge was amazing - but more so because I got to meet some sweet readers and felt so incredibly humbled to hear that y'all enjoy my blog as much as I love working on it. Nothing is more gratifying than knowing that there are people out there who look forward to my updates. For that, I thank you. Here's to more posts and hopefully more events to come!
