RED TARGET

Hi friends! How's your 3-day weekend going? lol. I'm getting a bit more motivated now since I've been busy and a day of online shopping therapy. Seriously, shopping does wonders to my mood, haha. No wonder why I'm a blogger, huh?

A few weeks back I had a chance to collaborate with my old friend Ivan, who happens to do photography on the side. It was definitely a new experience for me, but a cool way to branch out and get comfortable shooting with different photographers besides my boyfriend. I'm not going to lie, I was pretty awkward and unnatural when it came to poses as you can probably tell below, haha. A lot of people, were complimenting both Ivan and I a lot which definitely gave me more confidence. Have you guys started taking photos for blog with various people yet? Was it awkward? lol. ♡

Wide Brim Hat c/o Calico  
Fringe Necklace: Forever 21 (Similar)
Basic Tee: Image
Knitted Sweater: Wet Seal (Similar)

Yes, I know you guys are probably tired of me wearing the same trend, but I can't help it! It's honestly the easiest way to dress during the winter. A basic tee with openings on the side, layered with a color-pop oversized sweater from Wet Seal, some "too-lazy-to-put-on-some-pants" leggings, and my signature wide brim hat and Night Watch Cutout Booties from Calico (which was originally $68.00 but is on sale now for $27.20!). I also bought this awesome staple necklace from Forever 21 just for $10 on sale! Seriously, I've been bargain shopping like crazy! lol.

  2. love this look! I know what you mean, I feel awkward as hell when ANYONE takes my photo for my blog. I feel more comfortable taking them myself, lol.

    1. Thanks Sheila! It's sooo easier taking pictures by yourself because you know exactly what you want lol. The struggle comes when you want different angles lol ♡

  5. First off, that sweater is perfection! :) My boyfriend goes to school in a different state, so I always have to rely on people I hang out with for photos during the semester. It's awkward and I feel bad for asking- I don't want them to think I'm only using them for my blog :(

    1. Ohhh, I totally understand where you're coming from about feeling like you're using them. I felt the same way about my boyfriend and stuff for awhile and then I kinda just got over it lol. I'm pretty sure they understand though and don't take it to the hearts. Thanks for stopping by the blog! ♡

  6. Retail therapy is the best! I found the cutest $5 jeans last week and I'm still happy about it. Love the color of the sweater, such a nice deep red!

  7. ahhh I love this outfit! & whenever I try to get other people to take photos for me besides my best friend they always end up turning out awkward too, but it's good to know that I'm not the only one that struggles with that haha!

  9. What is this three day weekend you speak of? O_O
    Damn you and your perfect style and hair!!! *_* Seriously, I'm not at all tired of seeing you wear amazing clothes and styling them in such a cool manner! ^_^ I freaking love this ensemble, the red sweater is spectacular! And the last photo is magazine worthy!!! Great job on the photo shoot, both for you and Ivan!
    I always feel awkward, I can't help it, but I violate myself into striking poses and making sexy faces no matter what!!! I push myself out of the comfort zone and that's that!

  17. Hi Alexis,

    My weekend was great, I hope you too! yeah that's right shopping is self-therapy, no matter how bad your days you just need to be shopping and everything will be fine except your pocket :p. I feel that too, at first very awkward I can't act or smile natural but second and third times you will enjoy it :)
