A couple of looks to kick this year off on a good note.
While I long for Summer days (not as badly as when I was in Canada last year, but still…), the best I can do is dress for it. I once read that you should dress according to where you aspire to go in life. Let’s apply the same idea to as where you aspire to be in the short term, and for me that would be a cute summer destination. I couldn’t think of a colour that screams Summer more than white and a floral print kimono seemed to be the perfect match. So here is my early take on Summer dressing.
There is a certain je-ne-sais-quoi about kimonos. I adore how they look so delicate when they softly fall-off revealing a bare shoulder now and then. They are a perfect piece to play around with, and their versatility makes them ideal for day or night.
There’s a small shed close to my home that I drive by everyday. I hadn’t noticed it before because it’s hiding behind a shrubbery. I caught a glimpse of it through the bushes while I was pretending to exercise by walking, a few weeks ago. I realized then that its barren brick walls could probably make up for a nice set. And so I decided to put my denim shorts on and explore the area a bit further. In this post you can see the result of the shoot. I have to admit, it was a bit creepy to sneak around the old house, and, call me a coward but, I don’t think I will be going near it again any time soon.
PS: With this post I would like to introduce you to one of my new photographers: Gabriela Panameño. I hope you like the pictures (Thanks Gaby!).
