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 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!”

One of my closest friends Christina looking flawless as per usual in her Third Ward Loft. She was gracious enough to let me raid her closet and basically rearrange her apartment for a day to take some photos! The brunette beauty enjoys hanging out in her living room and cuddling with Snuggles, her fluffy pup, and Joseph, her botany expert beau. Scattered around her cool + chic bungalow are many different blooming plants of various shapes and sizes. “Plants are food for the soul. They breathe life indoors and filter out harmful or negative toxins. They make a house a home and fill it with greenery and joy.” In other words, plants + place = good vibes.

Christina has a wonderful eye for selecting the chicest of the chic when it comes to her wardrobe, or pretty much anything else. Christina’s closet pictured below, is dripping with eye-catching textures, like monochromatic prints, furs, leopard pumps, and lots of leather, must haves for any “it” girl.

Thistle + Hummingbird: Brunch at the Plaza

DSC_0339 (1).jpgDSC_0336.jpg

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.
