The grass is always greener where you water it.
Ahhh July. The month where floral patterns reach all-time highs; right along with your electricity bill. With summer having longer days and shorter nights, sometimes it seems like the sun is up forever. And when it’s golden hour, the time where the sun hits the earth just perfectly, it feels like you’re in a timeless dream, taking in its beauty as much as you can before it disappears into the night.
For this shoot, we definitely played around with what we had, and I can honestly say that despite having mosquitos biting at my ankles throughout the whole shoot (17 bites to be exact; currently dousing myself in calamine as we speak) this was such a fun shoot to do; not only because it involved running down a hill in wedges, but because it was so much fun doing things out of my comfort zone and being pleasantly surprised at the outcomes. I never would’ve imagined to do something like this, standing ankle deep in a forest, but I’m really glad I did.
This kimono has been in my closet for ages, but after wearing it almost every other week in high school, let’s just say I got a little tired of it. Fast forward to 3 years later, and it’s back to the front of my closet. Sometimes, you just need a little break from clothing pieces to let you truly appreciate it yknow? I wanted this outfit to have a nice balance between the top and bottom, so with the patterned kimono and the distressed jeans, I liked how the two textures meshed together rather than fighting for the spotlight. Kimonos are always fun to over accessorize with because they give off such a bohemian look, with me being such a sucker for chokers and earring, I just had to add some in too. Unfortunately the grass hides my wedges, but maybe it’s better that way because now you can’t see the mosquito bite constellations either (yikes).
