As promised!! New photos, a different look, and of course new clothes!

It's winter in the Midwest and has been for several weeks now! My cousin Emily is a wonderful photographer and I recently got to spend some time with her wandering around Pittsburgh, one of my favorite cities in the Midwest. We were on our way to have lunch with family when we stopped by this lovely park right near the river so snap a few photos. I know it's not a New York City street, but it's still special to me because this is where I grew up. This is where I became inspired by colors, textures, patterns... in nature. 

I have always had an affinity for turquoise/mint (blues) and oranges/reds together. I remember in my AP studio art class my senior year of high school I was ALWAYS picking that general color scheme. I feel it might have something to do with the way the warm sun interacts with the cool sky. Anyway, Winter can be boring and harsh in so many ways which is why I like to play with fun patterns like this fuzzy plaid and poppy-patterned dress. 

Of course the Hunter Boots are practical and necessary in the snowy midwest. Heels may look more polished, but I'm not sure I know anyone who can tackle black ice in 4-inch stilettos. Overall, I just wanted to bring something fun and carefree for my first look back on the blog. 

I hope you like it!
