Last year we decided for the first time we’d do Christmas cards. As you can see, we had fun shooting and yes, the pecan pie went straight into the bellies once the clicks were done. And since I had only shared a couple of shots from this 1950′s inspired shoot, I figured, why show more? It’s my favorite anyways!
It’s been a while since I last shared an outfit post here. One of the reasons being lack of time. In Cancun I had enough time to spare and since my husband and I carried the camera everywhere, we managed to capture shots that will help compose just a few outfit posts. On this particular day we lounged at a beautiful park known as xcaret. For the hot and sunny weather, I wore something light and casual enough to walk around as we explored the area. Swimsuit underneath, of course!
Not that I’ll be attending prom anytime soon (2004 is long gone) but this blue cocktail dress brought me back to the old times when the clear-sunglass lens trend had its days of glory and “One More Time” by Daft Punk was my jam. Maybe with the conclusion of summer and all the festivities the next two seasons come along with, my brain skipped ahead, sort of. See this week’s video lookbook above for some awkwardly early inspiration.
And that’s what I wore to a fun afternoon at the Lincoln Park Zoo, where we filmed the new video look book “Jar of Hearts”. It was hot and I was lazy, so comfort took the lead here. Wondering about the bright orange top? Rechillier is the technique, craftmenship that originated in northeast Brazil. It transitioned to mainstream in the past few years and now you can find it pretty much anywhere in the country. Definitely one of my favorite international pieces.
Ever since my husband and I moved to Chicago the Lincoln Park Zoo has become one of our top rated things to do on the weekends. During our last trip, we filmed another video lookbook edited by the sound of “Jar of Hearts”. Push play to watch:
Perfect days like this are what Chicago summers are famous for. If you haven’t visited, you must. Little insider tip: entrance to the zoo is totally free!
