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.
