Full Blossom

This was from my last shoot in Boston- it is quite surreal curating these photos in my bed back in California. I think insecurities naturally happen once you leave a place of comfort. I am starting to get picky about the way I look, and criticizing myself when I am not constantly thinking about my future goals.I need to remind myself not to strive for perfectionism, and not to forget to savor the journey it takes to reach my dreams. So stay calm, enjoy the summer months, and know that positivity is the best thing to put out there! I just graduated Boston University School of Theatre with a BFA in Acting. Now that is pretty rad might I say. 
I love this dress. It is a vintage Ralph Lauren floral masterpiece. I scored it at the SOWA market in the South End, during one of my last weekends of in Boston. It is simple linen, pretty for the warmer weather coming ahead. This length is a rarity in my closet as well, transporting me to a time where modesty did heighten sex appeal. I feel beautiful when I wear this dress. So even though this was my last shoot in Boston (for now..) I can always put this dress on to ease my anxiety or my homesickness. It is on to the next chapter in Los Angeles. 
Shout out to my fantastic + super sick photographer Lauren O'Neil. Cant wait for our future shoots whether it be on the East or WEST coast. Cheers to collaboration + friendship. Oddly this hyper-social media culture has its perks. I discovered a longtime artist + friend on instagram.

The Blue Coat

I like to reminisce about my time in London on gloomy days. This jacket instantly makes me feel put-together- it also makes me wish I had it in that beautiful city. While abroad I experimented with mixing men's wear concepts with high feminine details. A well fit trouser, a chunky boot, and a oversized jacket is a must for those cooler days. Now when I think of my personal style there are definitely elements inspired by men's wear. A daring silhouette always takes a look to the next level. I am addicted to this Essie polish Geranium as well. It is that perfect orange-red. I maybe not being going to Europe anytime soon, but its fun to dream (especially with the weather is blue).
