"Lost in a Daydream" Shoot for Stellar Design

This past weekend, in addition to working with some new clients, I also had the pleasure of working as a stylist for the photoshoot, "Lost in a Daydream" for Stellar Design. I met the designer, Keyonna Butler through PHLbloggers! She was seeking out a stylist for an upcoming photoshoot in Philly, and I jumped at the opportunity! I couldn't be more glad that I did!

I had so much fun working with a wonderful group of talented, creative individuals! We were brought  together by the amazing, Keyonna! Her clothing is up-cycled clothing that incorporates bright colors and so much joy! I think it's Keyonna's energy and love for her designs that created such a synergistic photoshoot!

I love all of the aspects of my job, and as much as I love modeling for my blog, it was nice to not have to worry about what kind of weird and awkward faces I'm making (and then being photographed).  It was fun making sure that all of the clothes and accessories were being showcased perfectly, and the models, Marissa Kowalski and Sam Thomas  were just the sweetest! They are stunning, and were total troopers, especially considering how cold it was, while we were shooting!

Eyelash Extensions by Dani at Wink Lash Studio

Oh my goodness, I am so excited! I got eyelash extensions!! I feel so glamorous now, it's kind of amazing.

 Since we are living in the age of social media and selfies, I recently became much more aware of the fact that my eyelashes do not like to behave! I've always been told that I had long eyelashes. I love to try different kinds of makeup, especially mascara, and I've probably tried them all! Since I have been taking a lot more pictures of myself over the past year, I noticed that my eyelashes do not like to hold a curl, and they are naturally straight! What good are long eyelashes if they don't curl?

#WednesdayWonder - Can you wear plaid without looking like a cowboy or a lumberjack?

Plaid is still going very strong as a trend, especially since winter doesn't seem like it's quite ready to leave just yet! (I'm going to blame the snow for the delay in this post). So, how do you wear plaid without looking like you're about to go line dancing or chop some wood?

#girlboss(es) 25 - Jennyfer Parra

Happy Friday! For those of us in the northeast, it's a snowy Friday! It seemed like we were done with this snow and cold weather, but apparently not! Anyway, our #girlboss this week is Jennyfer Parra, who is also a blogger (among other things!)! I enjoyed reading Jennyfer's responses, because you really get a sense of how she balances her drive with her appreciation for the joys of life! Enjoy! 


#WednesdayWonders - What is the best color of jeans for men and women?

Denim comes in many different shades and colors, and for some, it can be tough to choose the right shade for their outfit! For this post, I'll just talk about the three main shades of regular blue jeans - light, medium, and dark. These are commonly referred to as "washes" (light wash, medium wash, dark wash jeans). (All of the tips provided in this post can be used for men and women!)

Just like when I'm enjoying a flight of beer, I'll start light and then go dark.

#WednesdayWonders - What is the latest trend for shoes?

So many of us look for different options for shoes than the traditional choices - for women, we can usually choose between heels or flats, and for guys, there are oxfords or loafers. Of course, boots are always available too, but they are season specific. That being said, the question that I received is regarding sneakers! Sneakers - they're not just for working out anymore! However, you have to choose the right pair. You can't wear your Brooks with a cute dress and call yourself chic.

Since last week's Wednesday Wonder was for the guys, let's start with the ladies first, and then I'll show off some options for the gentlemen.

adidas sneakers

I have been seen these EVERYWHERE. The Neo Advantage is definitely a more casual option, so think of these more for the weekend. They're sporty without looking too athletic, and they tie right in to the athleisure trend that's so big right now. If you're a fan of these, but you don't want the same pair that everyone has, check them out in white and rose gold!
