So today is officially the first day of Spring, although it's grey and dreary as can be in Pittsburgh. However, the last couple days have been so temperate and reassuring that the worst is over. I love this time of year because it feels like a new start: the days are longer, flowering plants bloom, icy rivers begin to melt and streams start to swell with the excess water. I also feel more productive and inspired during Spring. I'm looking forward to everything Spring has to offer this next few months and I'm working towards a big change that will happen in the Summer!
These photos were taken last week when it was GORGEOUS outside...I'm talking so sunny that I barely even needed this cardigan. The photographs were taken by my dearest friend Remington Brooks of The Indigo Project. He's also a brilliant designer and actually did the design work for the StockingNoir lookbook in my Lunar Gala Fashion Show Post. I met Remington my freshman year of college when we were both photography majors (right before I changed my major, oops) and we've been amazing friends ever since. As you can see, he's incredibly talented. I had the so much fun posing for him and he knew exactly how to capture what I wanted from this look!
I've been obsessing over this floppy hat lately. I bought it at a cute boutique near my house called Pavement. Anytime there's sunshine I just feel like building an outfit around this gorgeous hat. My hair is also always terrible so throwing a hat over it makes me feel so much better. I bought these beautiful patterned silky pants last summer from Forever 21 and I'm so happy the weather is finally warming up and I can bust them out! The sheer white tank is also from Forever 21 and the cardigan is BCBG that I discovered at a local thrift store. My rings (and heels) are a part of the secondhand collection that I got from my good friend. I got this funky triangular necklace from Burlington Coat Factory. Sometimes the triangles just want to do their own thing...as you can see haha.
Enjoy the first day of Spring! I hope it's warm and sunny wherever you are!
