I had the pleasure of attending yet another meet up, it seems like these events are really starting to become a part of my routine. This one was held by Kendall Hanna of Kensfolk, this lady is such an inspiration. You guys can check out some of her photography and her blog (here). I can't believe I had never met her even though we literally worked right across from each other! She is fairly new to Houston so she held the event so that she could meet more "creatives" in the area. I'm also kind of growing on the term creatives, I never imaged someone let alone a group of people considering me somewhat of an artist. The group had people I would really consider artists like architects and photographers. I like the idea of getting groups of people together whom may never talk to each other in their everyday life's and putting them together and seeing them bond over similar interest. I've met so many sweet people and have found a sense of belonging. Living in Houston has its perks but it's definitely not New York or Los Angeles, the fashion and art community aren't as big. So when there's an opportunity to be part of the small creative community I make sure to be there. I look forward to more meet ups and making new friends. Before I go lets talk about how much I wear this blazer, if you read my post about going to Austin you'll remember seeing this thrifted beauty. I've seen so many casual looks including blazers so I kept it really simple and tied up my shirt underneath for a little midrift action. I'm a fan of showing a little stomach when I'm all covered up, it just adds a little sass. Since the weather is starting to warm up I'm finally going to be able to wear crop tops and dresses again so I can't wait to show y'all what I come up with! Until next time, byeee <3
This was my second day in Austin for SXSW and I had a few photographers ask to take street style pictures of me which was really fun. The photographer who took this is one that I had met during an Instagram Meet back home so I was more than happy to strike a little pose. I kept my outfits really simple and light since I knew I'd be walking around from 12pm-late at night each day. This was one of my favorites mostly because of my chunky cut out shoes I was wearing, I've worked six hours straight in these babies so I knew I would be able to handle them. If you follow my Instagram you've probably already seen these shoes and this picture(but now you can get all the deets!). I think I enjoyed people watching and seeing everyones style more than going to shows, not that I didn't have a good time seeing the bands I like and new ones! I just really had fun posing for pictures and talking about clothes with the fashionable crowd there. It's always a good time when you have music and fashion mixed together so I'm definitely looking forward to going to more festivals and shows this summer. As soon as I develop the pictures from my film camera I'll post a tad bit more about my trip. Until next time, byeeeee <3

Hello beauties! I just got back home from Austin less than two hours ago and wanted to tell you guys about SXSW. This is my second year attending the festival and I had such a great time, everyone was so nice and fun. I met some really cool people and photographers while I explored 6th street with my friend. We were there from Wednesday-Saturday morning so we were able to go to a good amount of shows and explore my favorite city. I went to the pop shop Laura and Jen from Ascot + Hart were having(thanks to Shelby for letting me know that they were going to be in Austin and for introducing me to their blog!). I've been following their blog and Instagram for inspiration and fell in love with both of them. I wasn't sure how lame it would be to fan girl over bloggers but I had a little moment. They were both so sweet and down to earth, and such babes. I also met Amanda whom is friends with Jen. She had taken a street style picture of me Wednesday and it was crazy running into her again, small world right? For obvious reasons I fell in love with her style, she's an LA based blogger and she has her own shop! We ended up showing Amanda how to ride the bus and then headed back to 6th street to find free shows I could get into. If you guys haven't been to SXSW most free shows are 21+ so finding ones I could get into was a little tiring and for most the lines were so long we just ended up watching street performers. I enjoyed just walking around and exploring but I'm sure next year when I'm 21 it'll be so much easier and fun. Hope you all are having a great weekend and I'll talk more about my trip later! Byee <3

Do you all remember me talking about wanting to record OOTD videos? Well I finally was able to! Yesterday my friend helped me shoot it and I stayed up last night editing all the clips and now have the final project. I'm giving myself a little a pat on the back for actually staying focused and getting it done so I hope you guys enjoy it. I definitely want to start having more video style vlogs and OOTD videos so you can see a little bit of what goes on when I'm taking pictures for the blog and get a better idea of how the clothes fit and move. Thanks to all you of beauties for keeping up with me so far and know that I love sharing my day and outfits with y'all!

Also, special thanks to my friend John for recording this video for me!
This morning I shadowed Cary Fagan for one of his shoots. To my surprise I arrived to see the models were familiar faces, the Anderson family consisting of Hannah and Sophia(pictured above) and Joshua whom was also working behind the camera. I see why he chose them, I mean c'mon look at how gorgeous they are! I met Cary at the Instagram Meet Up that took place a few months back and like many others we stayed in touch through Instagram. He shoots with film which I love so I asked if I could come and shadow him and he was kind enough to allow me to. I've been keeping up with his photography since meeting him and I can honestly say he's one of my favorite photographers. I would describe his work as dreamy from the beautiful models to the grain on each picture. You can see him through his art, in person he's a minimalist and very artistic and that translates to the images. Everyone can check out his work and prints (here).
Hello beautiful people! I have a very quick ootd for what I consider an errand day. Yesterday Shelby and I met up, I know it doesn't seem like from the way I post but we actually haven't seen each other in a few weeks. I think its because we are constantly texting and chatting on Instagram so it never really feels like we've missed anything. We got yummy lunch from Pei Wei which we devoured so no pictures of that(oops). Then we headed to Target to look at cameras and things we don't really need of course. Both of us are investing in a new camera, I'm looking for one that records also so I can start making vlgos(YAYYY). So if you guys can recommend any let me know! Back to the outfit though, you all know I love me some basic pieces and this outfit is so comfy and simple. I've literally been living in these rain boots, it was raining the morning of when we took pictures and then suddenly got super bright as soon as we made it to Target. Also, shout out to Shelby for helping with the pictures! She's learning how to use my camera and she did a pretty good job! Happy Saturday y'all <33
