Teddy Bear

Turning into a teddy bear seems to be the trend this season and I’m sooo not mad about that. I’m all about a fuzzy piece of clothing and always have been so when this trend started to come about I was extremely excited. It’s also the best trend ever for those of us that don’t like to get out of bed because I’m always soooo cozy in my outfit. I got this sweater at H&M in the Divided section quite recently and I really loved it because it’s the same style as a Patagonia sweater but half the price. I’ve yet to get a good teddy coat but I think that’s my next purchase while this trend is happening.

 Most days you’ll find me in some variation of a jeans and t-shirt combo. I’m all about being comfortable. I remember I used to dress in ways that I thought was on trend, and it may have been, but I just never felt comfortable. I remember putting outfits together that I knew I wouldn’t wear but would photograph for my blog because it was spread across magazines and was the “trend at the time”. Meanwhile after shooting pictures I would change back into jeans and t-shirt. That has become such a go-to for me that it’s comical when I put a dress on I feel extremely over-done. 

Jeans and a t-shirt is how I feel my most comfortable and I like to spice it up with accessories. A statement jacket, interesting shoes, dramatic sunglasses, unique bag and the list does on.

I’m starting a New Series called #OOTD featuring the daily outfits I capture on my iPhone6. I don’t get to meet with my photographer Josh as often as I would love to to capture my current outfits; thus I want to switch things up for a little bit. I want MORE content on here MORE often and I imagine those of you that visit here do too. When I see Josh I’m going to change things up-explore more of the “trends” that have been forecasted by editors and influencers, and really get more creative with the shoots like the glossy pages you see in magazines and explore the art of styling.

To be honest the iPhone takes better quality photos than professional cameras half the time and just because Josh isn’t around to take my photos doesn’t mean I turn off my style. I certainly put effort in usually everyday. Yes I’m human and have lazier, sick , offish days etc but I almost never leave the house without thinking about what I’m putting on my body; even if I’m just popping over to the grocery store.

This series will showcase the what were lost photos on my iPhone6. The pictures I normally snap for Instagram purposes and I have saved for a #tbt or #latergram. I no longer want to save them as a distant style memory for future purposes so you’ll be seeing a lot more from my iPhone6 archives.
