Show You Off
Happy, happy March, everyone! I don’t know about you, but I am already anxious on how quickly March is going to quickly transcend before our eyes, and we will be in April. I find on my busiest days, I have to remind myself to slow down and to live in the moment, because it is so easy for me to forget when my thoughts are consumed on worrying for my loved ones, work, and what I need to accomplish next. I am still a work in progress and still learning to check in on myself, much more frequently than before. I know for some the action is simple to do, while others like myself, the action can be slightly arduous. At the end of the day, it is your life and help is available in many forms, if you need it. And so before I go into today’s post, I ask for you to check in on your heart and yourself and ask yourself “How am I doing?”
In the last few weeks, the weather in the bay area has been fluctuating between a few days of heavy rain and then one to two days of sunshine. Luckily on the day I shot “Show You Off” with Stephanie, the sun was out to play. Unfortunately, the wind was also out to play, and my bangs did not want to cooperate and stay still for certain shots, but what can you do? The shoot must go on.
I wanted to create a look around one of my favorite moto jacket from H&M that I have not showcased on the Crystal Avenue in a while. Thus, I chose a sweet and flirty dress and suede heels from Lulu’s to pair with my moto jacket, to offset the look from being overly edgy. For my accessories, I wanted to stay within the same color palette, so I went for a pair of gold double hoop earrings and my Daniel Wellington watch.
