Before I let a ridiculous amount of time pass by and it seems absurd to post my senior photos, I decided to piece together different posts with each outfit. Below is where we started the shoot, at my apartment. I wanted to capture different parts of Long Beach that I love, starting with where I call home. I've slowly crafted my apartment to reflect my design style and I'm very proud of it.
In a separate blog post I'll give you more details about my apartment, but in this post you'll see glimpses of the space in these photos. I've lived in this apartment since the summer of 2015. The tall ceilings, plaster walls and original wood floors are just touching the surface of what I love about it. Plus the light in the space is amazing at all times of day.
Occasionally you'll hear the "tamale lady' yelling tamaleesssss at the top of her lungs, or the "opera lady" casually belting out opera as she walks the neighborhood. And this is why I say I can never go back to the suburbs.
So this is me. In my space. Sharing a piece of my little haven with you all. Enjoy!
I wanted to match my apartment while still keeping the outfit pretty neutral. My top is from H&M and my jeans are the same Levi's as the last post (told you a wear them a ton). My pink velvet block heels are from Matisse and my pink half moon earrings are from Madewell. Just a quick tip, If I'm buttoning up a top all the way, I balance it out by bringing in a feminine touch on bottom with heels. A lot of my outfits can come across as little boy or prairie vibes, so I try to break it up and add a heel.
Thanks Jessie for the rad photos! check out her and her husbands website here. Definitely recommend them if you're in need of any type of photos.
