STYLE / 51

i just have so much fun coming together with my friends and dreaming up new concepts for these style shoots. this month we wanted to do something completely different than the last time i shot with max.

for the month of may there will be 4 very different looks each tuesday. we were lucky enough to team up with beso (an awesome shopping site) to make these funky shoots possible! each week, i will be creating get the look collections that go along with each outfit!

i always put together mood boards for my photographers and stylists so they can get a feeling for the shoot and know how to prepare. i also just really enjoy making them. i thought you might like to see where my ideas came from and a little behind the scenes on the process of these shoots…

…and can we talk about how funny it is that i remembered after the shoot about that child model photo of me right above! wow, i look the same as my 3 year old self!

i knew i wanted to have a tux for one of the looks. i just love the menswear look with little hits of femininity (like those amazing feather trimmed BHLDN shoes!)

luckily my boyfriend arian is making a behind the scenes video of all of these shoots combined! (coming out on the 4th week!) in the video you will see me dancing & posing like a straight up fool for this series. it’s a good thing max knows how to make me look somewhat normal in the photos.

if you know me, you know i love all things jazz. you can find me driving around town in my convertible gettin’ doooown to some soul music. it’s just something that really makes me really happy. so the photos were also inspired from that.

see you back here next tuesday for the next shoot! it’s quite bright!
