Let’s Make a Habit of This

Hey there. Been a while. (Yes, this is totally going to be one of those awkward, self-conscious, finding-my-voice-again posts.)

There’s been plenty going on since the last update…

  • In my hiatus from blogging, worlds collided. My double life was exposed (i.e., I was outed as a blogger at my day job) when this appeared in the Sunday Globe Magazine.
  • I’m continuing work with Zoora (and actually wearing a skirt from their capsule collection here, customized with a waterfall hemline). Gregor is continuing to take pretty pictures.

I think Tumblr is highly responsible for an outfit like this. It’s bright and trendy, almost to the point of irony. Neon high-low skirt! Leopard print denim shirt! Armful of colorful knotted friendship bracelets! I wear all the trends!

…and then I feel silly and cheesy and fall back on my dark, dramatic, monochromatic styles, with a focus on structure and texture (see: this) – until that begins to feel equally unoriginal, and the cycle repeats. It’s the dichotomy within my taste.

an unfortunate angle ...and again. i don't know what happened here. those are not my hips.
[Zoora skirt, H&M shirt, Forever 21 jacket, Jeffrey Campbell shoes from Solestruck, Zara umbrella bag, vinatge necklace from the Haberdash, Bevel ring from Occulter]

i totally curled my hair, but i didn't use any product. humidity is a bitch. now i just look scraggly.

At least I’m never at a loss for inspiration. Let’s hope that means more (and better, I promise) posts to come soon.

      Of course I don’t mind! As soon as I saw this one someone else, I wanted it too. I snagged this one fresh off the model at our lookbook shoot, haha.

  7. I saw the Boston Globe thing on Facebook. So proud of my Holls! :) One things calm down for you a little, I want to see you! It’s been way too long.

  8. I love Zoora, and that hi-low skirt is such a great colour. The outfit looks nice with the printed top. Enjoy your week. Congrats on the feature!
