I was trying my new shoes on and decided to have a photo shoot with them! If you follow this blog you know I live in Oakland, CA. Which is the laid back capitol of my world at least. So naturally I have a lot of sneakers. Most of the events and activities I go to they are allowed and my job doesn’t require me to dress up so I opt for sneakers over heels often. Don’t get me wrong, I love me a heel. I enjoy a sexy, interesting, feminine shoe just as I do a crisp pair of Jordans. However you have to have balance in your closet and mine was not. Every time it was time to dress up, it was a struggle and I was limited on what I could wear because I only had a few pairs of heels and NO essentials or classics. So I saw Zara was having a really good sale, so I copped me a pair. I think I spent a total of $150 on four pairs of shoes (one not pictured because I’m still on the fence about them) Anyway check Zara out during sale time, it’s for sure the come up.
This month I am still obsessed with my Tumblr and it is totally serving me when it comes to giving me motivation for my outfits. Naturally I am into texture, mixing prints, and masculine and feminine styles. I’m what you call an emotional dresser, so depending on my mood, or the music I’m listening to that is the look I go for. I also made a mood board, that I have hung in my room that I look at to motivate me when getting dressed too.
There has been a lot of life events that I have participated in over the past couple of weeks. Bridal Showers, Birthdays, and Wedding celebrations. So I’ve had to actually put on dress clothes and put down the sneakers. I actually enjoy dressing up when I have the opportunity, living in Oakland I feel like I don’t get to much because it’s so laid back( and I have the dressed down look waaaaay covered) I also have a photo shoot Sunday for a blog feature that I’m in. I am SO nervous about this, since I am always behind the scenes and a general goof troop when It comes to be a serious Model. Also having it only be one look, is a challenge because getting a feel for my style in one swoop is going to be hard for me to convey. Stay tuned for the pics from that! Let this mood board motivate you to flourish this weekend! Happy Friday!
