Branching out...

Wednesday, July 20, 2016

Ladies and gentlemen, hold the phone... I finally crossed something off of my blogger bucket list that's been there since I started blogging!  I took outfit photos in an underpass.  I don't know for sure what it is about underpasses (but it's probably the graffiti) that has always made me want to shoot in one, but I could never find a place that was safe enough.  

All of that changed today!  I was on my way to work and was focused on trying to notice new things. I pulled into a parking lot, intending to photoshoot there, but then it hit me: there is a publicly sanctioned walking trail that just so happens to go directly under a busy road.  Boom.  I was off like a shot!  

I love that I found this photo location while wearing this particular outfit since the colour scheme of both outfit and location are a rather epic match!  Since I've been so huge lately on colour and embroidery and all sorts of bohemian-ness, this look was a bit of a change from the norm and it had me feeling both like I should head back to Sweden and like I may need to consider a move back to Manhattan.  It's just got that minimalist/city-slicker vibe that I don't often pull off.  Of course, I had to get fancy with ombrĆ©, add some eclectic handmade accessories, and show off my henna, but hey... at least I branched out a little bit, right? 

What's sustainable about this outfit? 
: the tunic was purchased second hand
: the necklace is fair trade/handmade from a piece of lava rock that was literally found on the ground near a volcano in Honduras
: the bracelets are all handmade
