COTTON

Saturday, August 10, 2013


DIY Flower Crown, Gold Anchor Necklace c/o Lulu*s,  White Cotton Dress from H&M, Cotton Scarf from Calvin Klein, Nude Ankle Strap Pumps from Nine West

This is a more artistic shoot I recently did for a collaboration with Chictopia and Cotton: The Fabric of Our Lives! When I think of cotton, I think of lightness and purity, which were the themes I used to guide me as I put together this easygoing, summer outfit that you can wear any day. I decided on a clean, white color palette and chose to wear a simple, cotton mini dress paired with my favorite scarf. I love these shots of the scarf flowing in the wind because they help to convey the lightness and airiness of cotton :) To add a pop of color, I wore my blue and white flower crown because they reminded me of the summer sky.

Besides the fact that I thought shooting this look in the fields would add to the natural theme of these photos, it's also a very meaningful location to me, especially because this might be the last look I'm able to post to my blog before I leave for New York in 4 days. I took a lot of my first outfit photos here when I started my blog about 2 years ago, and these fields symbolize both the beginning and end of a chapter of my life as I get ready to make the big move and finally start studying at my dream school, Parsons! Everything feels so surreal!
