As a current extrovert / someone who is inspired being in new environments / low key people watcher, we prefer to be out and about more days than not. Given the current climate [aka global pandemic] it has been critically important to stay home, limit social engagements and practice thoughtful social distancing. How is one to cope?
From one fashionista to another, whether you are an evening Reddit user or social butterfly to the stars, we wanted to share a few things to encourage our extroverted, introverted, bbs out there working it day by day!
Here are 3 strategies that help us, and we hope they can inspire you! Read on below:
Oh hello, my fave fashionistas! What a crazy COVID world we are living in. Today we want to share a bit of color from our world to yours, messy hair don’t care, outdoorsy chill vibes style, magic hour lighting we can’t resist. Here are a few looks for you. Much love, fashion fam! 💚🤗
For some style inspiration, I’m happy to share with you this shoot from the lovely @bridalandbraids & @amylimaphotos 🤗
This look is boho inspired with a denim influence, infused with elements of pale pink. It started with the pink top and adding other layers to that. The “messy” bun enhances the style and complements the feel of “effortlessly boho chic”, thanks to Ryann’s uber talented hair styling and vision. (Spoiler alert: “messy buns” are not so easy!)
This look of a more structured jean on jeans + sheer flowy pink dress + pink chunky boots is a fun way to show how to incorporate different kinds of material into one look, mixing structure with a feminine feel. Hopefully this gives you some style inspiration. What other pieces do you like mixing together?
As I get cozy at one of our fave local places to dream, write, create and connect, coffee fills my bones while rain dusts off the city this fall Sunday morning. A calm energy floats through the air, with a focused mood from others working, and families with no agenda gather to enjoy the day together.
A lot has happened since the fashion show and what.a.ride it has been. In a recent conversation with someone amazing, I shared how I felt stuck and depressed. Among other things, she shared I take a look at the 30,000 foot view of e v e r ything that has happened this year. <listen more on this and why we should note the celebrations on this fab podcast here> That prompted a fun visual. She suggested I post it, which of course I took literally and fashion fam, you are welcome. I’d love to share with you this view if you’d like to experience this multicolor lens with me.
