WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: style diary

18 Oct

In Week 2 for my Fall Style Diary, comfort was key!  I needed things that were quick and easy, plus I was just kind of lazy.  Many people confuse comfortable clothing with sloppy clothing, and that doesn’t have to be the case.  A dress is heck a lot easier for me to put on than a pair jeans, and I instantly look i put in some effort when i really didn’t!  Along with comfort, this week was about a statement piece, which was my new studded leather jacket.  I love it!  It dresses anything up.  The other key piece are my Jeffery Campbell Brit Wrap Strap Boots.  I’ve been eyeing strap boots for minute, and these did exactly what i wanted; they’re a great pair of moto boots to go with my moto jacket.
My favorites fits this week came in the latter portion of it, which were Thursday, Friday and Continue reading

style diary: week 2

11 Jan

In week two of my Style Diary I had to challenge myself to not go against my initial idea, which I always have a habit of doing. Most times I usually should follow my gut, and there are other times, like I think now, that I should have listened to the other voice in my head.

I had this idea of playing with seated positions for this week.  I wanted to change up the scenery, but I quickly learned that I prefer consistency in my backgrounds, it looks cleaner, and from a photographic standpoint, by the end of the week handling the lighting becomes really easy because you become familiar with the setting.  Regardless, I’m suppose to document what I’m wearing, and not how or where I took the picture.

This week I went back home to my small hometown in Florida to visit my family. There is not too much to do when I’m home, and even less when its 30 degrees in the Sunshine state (it was too cold to leave the house Saturday & Sunday).  When I’m home it’s a great time to relax with family & friends, listen to the singing of cicadas, eat good food, and not fuss about clothing.

I have another week here, and I’m pretty sure by the end of it I’ll be screaming for the streets of NYC. But for now I’m just going to chill, it makes no sense to get all decked out to walk up and down the mall or Wal-Mart.

This week, it was a toss-up between Monday and Friday, but my favorite outfit was Friday. The colors made me feel happy and vibrant, plus it was a great day of seeing old friends…just one of those days when you feel great about yourself. Hope you have one of those days; enjoy the week!
