Houston Humidity Hehe

Ah yes, part 2 of the H-town series is here! Please appreciate the fine alliteration in the title. I’m really proud of it actually. As you soon will tell, the humidity did its job very well during my time visiting. I am Monica on Friends when her hair is a frizzy mess and she’s yelling, “It’s the humidity!!!” But now it’s October and I don’t have anything to blame my messy hair on rather than my low maintenance attitude towards hair care. Once again, me and Ava went awf! We did this shoot after thrifting at Buffalo Exchange. Which I will proudly state that the Houston location is soooo good. I snagged a silk Rag & Bone cropped blouse, dope silk (we love silk on this blog) wide leg pants, and the bag + sunnies from this shoot.

About the bag… I swear the early 2000’s coming back into fashion is actually lovely. I mostly just love being reminded that I had similar bags when I was 7 years old. I would also like to mention that the 80’s style teaming up with the 00’s is pretty great to see too. It’s a very bold time in fashion right now. Back to the bag story though, there were two I was debating on getting at Buffalo Exchange. It was between a beaded shoulder bag or a clear, translucent purse. I’ve seen them both around before, a.k.a on other style blogger’s Instagram’s. Unsurprisingly, the beaded bag won. Sad news though, it started to fall apart after some serious dancing at Lollapalooza. At least it (and I) were having fun. Onto the cat eye tortoise sunglasses……. nothing really to say, it’s a pure essential. The green floral dress was originally purchased for a vacation last fall, but I had thoughts of styling it with my favorite f*cking shoes. The iconic Nike City Huarache trainers that I actually never take off my feet! Ohp, and I borrowed my brother’s Polo Ralph Lauren socks, ya know, to add a special touch. Okie…. photo time.

Welcome, welcome! This is part 1 of a 2 part Houston series. I traveled down to H-Town to visit my lovely friend and Loon Look photographer, Ava!! As you may guess, yeah, it was f*cking hot! But we sucked it up and made it through the gated community to shoot some photos for the blog. I had to play Versace because of this moment (google the lyrics if you aren't quite sure what I'm referencing to). Yes, the homes provided for a great background too, as you soon will see.

There is something that I have always found so chic about incorporating a white palette for a look. If you don't know my styling go-to of wearing different shades of white/cream/ivory/etc. together, then take a look at my closet man. Firstly, it's color-coordinated and the white color section takes up 1/3 of it!!! Serious. Back in April, when I did coverage for MN Fashion Week, I purchased this button up and linen trouser shorts from The Keep, one of the vintage brands that were being represented in the Circa Now event. Also, I have been putting this coin necklace to good use lately. I love the vintage touch it can instantly bring to any fit. But really, a look like this delivers two of my favorite vibes. First is a 90's Parent Trap vibe. I envision Elizabeth James would wear this. Don't forget that amazing off-white ensemble she stunted while in London. And the other vibe... a summer in Italy. Think of the film, The Talented Mr. Ripley. I've already decided I'm wearing this when I visit. Now, everyone please send Ava a 'Thank You' letter because this is definitely my favorite shoot so far. Ok, photo time now.
