Flower Bomb

When in doubt, it is best to keep things neutral. This goes for everyone, boys and girls. In case you've been living under a rock, neutral palettes have been the theme for several seasons now--and the minimalist in me is dancing in celebration.

Here is a pre-fall look I styled for Forever 21 (and a few more on the way)! Hate it or love it, but it is a common truth that Forever 21 capitalizes on impromptu, out-on-the-own ensembles. 

Bomber jackets can do no wrong (wear them with dresses, skirts or everything), and sheer high-neck bodysuits deserve their own spotlight. Street luxe exudes an air of confidence that is both refined and badass--my favorite way to be. Shop my pre-fall selects in the links below:

Schoolgirl Feelings

Top: Tildon (also worn here), Skirt: H&M (also worn here), Necklace: Xevana, Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell  |  Photos by Carl Mahoney

My skater skirt strikes again! I love the scuba-suit neoprene and the way it flounces as I move. It's probably my favorite H&M purchase to date! Naturally, I paired it with this sheer button-up and stockings for the classic schoolgirl look. If you have been following my blog, you would know that I literally live in my Xevana necklace--it goes with everything! Or perhaps I just wear it with everything? Embrace who you are and do as you please: That's the beauty of personal style!

I'm not sure why I'm drawn to juxtaposing a pretty outfit against a run-down place. Yet here I am once again exploring dark and desolate areas. I thought it would be interesting to switch it up and do a nighttime shoot. The darkness adds a cinematic touch, wouldn't you agree?

It's that time to reload on my caffeine. I hope you all are having a fantastic week! Thanks so much for stopping by!
