Public Desire - Janine Over the Knee Boots

DSC01834-2.jpg

Two parts class, equal parts sass. Not sure who loves thigh highs more, men or myself? Call it a natural attraction. Thigh high boots are like a PSA alerting the masses that you are not a force to be reckoned with! 

Lately, I've been exhibiting a transitional phase that resonates throughout my expression and style choices. (But if we are always growing, aren't we always transitioning? At least that's the goal). There was a time where I thought I'd live my whole life in a crop top, and now I'm the opposite of Drake's "wearing less and going out more." (Here's another way I styled them, also coincidentally my first shoot with Alex!)

I want to be noticed in different ways than I used to. I don't like the same things I used to. When I'm out with most people, I'd rather be at home writing, editing, scheming with some wine in between.

Living in San Francisco makes it easy to find beauty everywhere. The rolling hills, the skyline, or how about the iconic Painted Ladies behind me. This photo shoot was cut short when I spotted a puppy French bulldog and was somehow lured into a nearby dog park. Nuff said.

Parisian Vibes

I've said it once and I've said it again, hunter green is my favorite color to wear in the fall. Such a rich and regal color, flattering on all skin tones. Magical, right? It's different, it's uncommon. It's also my mom's favorite color--so that might explain my affinity. This dress has a lovely ribbed texture, exposed zipper and oversized O-ring zipper, screaming '90s babes of your dreams'. The dress on it's own is a little too racy, so I paired it with a cute velvet beret--both items from Forever 21. I love the way hats have an ability to top off or subdue any outfit, simply diverting the attention from your outfit to your pretty face. This dress is a size small, but I think a medium might have worked better for me since I am a little busty and the dress ran a little short. No big deal, still love how this look mixes edgy and adorable elements.
