I absolutely love looking at personal style blogs (M Loves M, The Effortless Chic, and A House in the Hills are three of my faves!) and have been planning on amping up this blog – so I’m introducing regular style posts of my own along with more regular Style Spotlights! While I hardly consider myself any sort of fashion guru, I love the way clothes and accessories can say so much about a person. Plus (I know I’ve said this before) I think it’s super important as a photographer to make yourself the subject every now and again. I’m going to try not to overload you with floral dresses and braided updos, but I make no guarantees!
This past weekend was my friend Aaron’s 30th birthday, and he celebrated by hosting an awesome arcade tournament at the EightyTwo, DTLA’s latest barcade! Oh man, this place is SO FUN. Delicious drinks (if you like sweet cocktails go get the Princess Peach right now) and a bounty of fun vintage games! I knew I’d want to wear something comfortable so I could play pinball to my fullest potential. Not that I was eliminated in the tournament’s first round or anything…! No matter, I loved how this H&M dress was a bit of a 90s throwback!
So much for holding off on those braided updos! Mike and I went hiking earlier this day and I just didn’t have time to do a full blowout after showering. My hair very high maintenance if I want to wear it down (as you can probably tell from all of that frizz), so this is always a quick solution. A high bun is one of my favorite go-to styles in the summer!
Flats are necessary for a night spent on your feet playing arcade games.
How fun is this bunny ring?! My dear friend Alyssa gave it to me for Christmas a couple of years ago since she knows bunnies are my spirit animal. It was too big so I made it into a necklace – problem solved! I couldn’t find an exact replica anywhere, but this is close.
