Outfit Post: Minimalist Vibes With Lo & Sons

Photography By: Anthony Hudson Minimalism has got to be my favorite fashion trend. It’s simple, easy and stands the test of time. I’m not a huge fan of color, so I’m quite happy in my black, whites and neutrals. I recently got a Lo & Sons Waverley cross body bag which practically goes with me everywhere and is so easy to pair with any outfit. Whether its running errands, going out with family or out on a shoot, its the perfect bag for my minimalistic tendencies and essentials.

From one purpose to another. How would you style it?   Disclaimer: This was …

First Outfit Post: Spring Florals, Denim and Red Block Heels

I’ve been blogging here for the past 3 years and I haven’t put up very many outfit/style post. To be honest, I’d much rather be behind the camera than in front of it. But sometimes we have to push past our comfort zones and show up. So I decided to give this a try. I’m not a big print person, but Spring is here and I was inspired by all the pretty flowers in bloom. I picked this really minimal location because I just love the colors.
