A Blush-Hued Project: Dusty Rose

DSC_0172

We took a stroll on a fine Sunday afternoon. Hannah, my muse, and I took a quick pit stop at the East Side Coin laundry, as well as a local dive bar, Y-NOT II. I hand-picked a select few to show just for you. I hope you enjoy.

A Cool Project: Gone Rogue

DSC_0722.jpg

Thrift shopping is a go-to past time of mine. I really enjoy picking out the hidden treasures that may lie hidden beneath piles of all sorts of odds and ends.

I found a Cadet Kelly worthy army jacket (props to those of you who know that Hilary Duff reference, cinematic gold) in a thrift shop the other weekend. This jacket even has the old name written inside and everything, Gulliver. Fitting I think, I don’t know why. I picked it up and decided to shoot it together with a cute ensemble.

Meet my muse, Kelsey Garfoot. She has extensive experience in sweetness and also textile design. She is magic when creating crystal-embroidered items and body jewelry. You may remember her from a shoot I did this past summer with her and some of her friends! Feel free to scroll back a page or two to see that, called A Primitive Project. Enjoy our little collaboration, which I am sure will not be the last.

A Parisienne Project: Beau Fille

I knew Anne a lonngg time ago, from a shoot we were both booked on a few years back, or it may have been a fashion show, yikes, my memory escapes me. None the less, she is an absolute sweetheart and I am so grateful we’ve been able to stay friends for so long. Anne currently works and lives in Madison, W.I., and is employed at ShopBop.

She loves Milwaukee, Madison and Chicago is incredibly sweet, funny, as well as an avid Packer fan, which is always plus in my book. I enjoy her company immensely, and when we collabed for a fun little shoot, magical things happened. She also told me about this awesome company she repped in her first look. I can’t wait share shots with you below.

“All Aspects Apparel is an art and lifestyle brand based out of California. I know Matt, who is part of the design team and he also helps run their Instagram account. We went to school (MATC) together and have been homies ever since. He moved to Cali and has been living his dreams. (Super jealous of him haha! )

I like the All Aspects brand and their overall style. They have some awesome stuff out right now for fall and they have the best dad hats ever!”

Thistle + Hummingbird: Brunch at the Plaza

Brunch At The Plaza

Sundays are meant for sleeping in, stressing less, eating more, and having some fun. Work hard play hard am I right? My friend Kat and I decided to have a mid afternoon breakfast pick me up. We headed to one of our favorite places, Cafe at the Plaza.

I wanted to share some fun and beautiful memories we captured below.

DSC_0271 (1)

Of course, before we left we had to snap some shots in our sundresses. Kat is wearing a vintage chiffon skirt from DKNY and vintage JCrew floral printed slip all from Lela Boutique in the Third Ward of downtown Milwaukee, WI.

Theory booties on me to the right + Sam Edelman kitten heels on Kat to the left (oh the irony).

Because I live a hop, skip and a jump away from said Cafe, I decided it was best we meet at my place and then walk over. We took a stroll down my street and saw some Spring time sights and delights. Below is Kat slinging her Coach cross body while en route to food.

I have been wanting to try this hairstyle for so long and my friend Rachel was kind enough to do my hair. I have never been great with doing my hair, I usually just take a shower and let it dry and that’s that, so this is cool for me.

I paired this hairstyle with one of my favorite looks: sunglasses, shorts, a tee, and another shirt wrapped around my waist. The extra shirt comes in handy while walking in the city. If it ever gets a little too breezy out, you have a sweater.

As you can see, I grabbed my camera and some of my friends, and I walked around the city a bit! Here are some fun little snapshots of the day. Enjoy!
