I don’t own sweatpants or anything too comfortable, simply because I never want to get too comfortable…with anything; Clothes, Life, Dreams, People. Though there’s obviously exceptions, I feel like sweats are a perfect metaphor for giving up. Even Karl Lagerfield was quoted “Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life, so you bought some sweatpants.” With that said, this is probably the closest I’ve got to sweats or comfortable clothes to just throw on (aside from jeans and a t-shirt) and they’re absolutely perfect. I love the ribbed detailing and double striped band. It’s easy to dress up or down, depending on footwear and how you style it, it can definitely make you look like the most athletic person, on the go. Just throw on your nikes and toss your hair into a ponytail and you’re ready!
I was 18 going on 19 when I met Captain through a bunch of mutual friends. He was just starting out with photography and we had so many ideas. He was driven and passionate and so easy to work with. We started meeting up just about everywhere; me with clothes and him with his camera. We meshed so well and instantly became best friends, collaborators and artists. It’s so strange to think of our first photoshoot in the basement of his apartment complex, and how much we both have grown since. Now our shoots are few and far between due to busy schedules and growing up, but we still make time here and there, to get together and make our ideas come to life. Here’s what we created one random Tuesday afternoon when he called me up and said “What are you doing? Let’s shoot.”
Nothing says “California” quite like palm tree lined streets and blue skies. I’ve been wandering around the city on my days off, which are few and far between, and discovering hidden gems, new restaurants and soon to be favorite places. Everything this past month has fallen into place quite nicely. I’m certainly the happiest that I’ve ever been and learning more than I ever have. I’ve even been finding the time to wear some of my favorite pieces, like this For Love & Lemons Ethereal Set that’s been sitting in my closet for far too long. It perfectly combines elegance with edge and I can’t tell you how many people compliment this co-ord.
