Well hot damn, Pennsylvania sure is muggy. (Also, I moved to Pennsylvania.)
You don’t even want to get me started on how much I’m not acclimating to the humidity.
In addition to about half of our windows being unable to open, we didn’t have air conditioning in our very old, very poorly insulated apartment until just recently. So, for the past few months I’ve essentially just been a big, lazy puddle – scantily clad and complaining about how hot it is every five minutes.
Cue the bodysuit.
When I die, bury me in bell bottoms.
Bury me in these ones. Continue reading
Nope. Not the delicious salad dressing, ya silly. More what I was feeling like in this long sleeved maxi from Knot Sisters.
Alas, if only I could have this dress in a million variations.
It’s long and it’s flowy in the best of ways. It also has as a great plunging neckline (perfect for my fellow IBTC members), and is basically the comfiest thing I’ve had draped across my bod.
Before I get into how magical this shoot was, let me tell you that this guy right here, Mark, my other half, reeeeeally isn’t the biggest fan of being photographed. He’s a cinematographer and spends most of his time around cameras or reading about cameras or looking at pictures of cameras or talking about cameras, but I assure you he will never be the first person to volunteer to be in front of one. That being said, he was a bonafide gangster for this shoot with Voz Collective x Yellow Wallpaper HM.
A few months ago I was a part of a photography workshop. It was held in this incredible Victorian home, tucked away innocently in a really urban neighborhood. I walk in the door and there’s this rack of killer wardrobe curated by LA based Recycle 2 Riches. It’s got some mod, some modern, and a smattering of other really cute pieces from the eras in between. Alright, I’m feelin’ this.
Well. It’s been like a year since I’ve paid attention to this. I really regret that.
So much has happened over the past several months. A handful of films, some great trips, and the little baby plunge into my fledgling, part-time modeling career. I’ve been so fortunate to have been a part of oodles of really great shoots with super talented creatives and some very cool brands. I don’t often share more than one or two shots from any given shoot on social media, and that’s a shame. A damn shame, I tell you! So, in efforts to bring myself up to speed, I’ll be sharing a lot of my past images along with more recent ones. This is the first set from a lookbook shot a week or two ago for Livin’ Freely | Rica Boutique, and is part of a larger Glamping inspired lookbook by the cool kids over at B.Rose. I truly loved shooting this.
So without further ado, here are some words about it all.
It’s that time of the week. Here’s a little flashback from Haylie’s Thanksgiving.
And I’m home.
It took a minute, but I’m finally settling back in. I can’t even begin to describe how amazing it is to be back in some mother lovin’ heat. All I want to do is wear tiny, little flowy things and lie in the sun. And it’s that exact notion that inspired this most recent number.
While gone, I had a hole in my heart the size of these thrifted boots, so as soon as I was back I could barely wait to slip my feet into these little guys. A floral maxi and a deconstructed vintage tee play on the rad, retro party that these beautiful platforms are, while a wide brim fedora makes me feel super cool and mysterious.
Between our line of work and a mutual chronic wanderlust, Mark and I do a LOT of driving. It’s such a great thing that Kanye, our sweet little puppy child, is so good in the car, because we try to take him with us as much as possible. Here are some of my must-have picks on my doggie travel list. Continue reading
