lately color seems so bright
and the stars light up the night
my feet they feel so light
This summer has been much like last, as I fall into a routine of life. While this summer has been free of the stress of buying, renovating, and moving into a house, it has been full of vacations, sunny beach days, and beautiful brunches. Another tradition I’m growing fond of is visiting the Fashion Camp at Capitol Hill Arts Workshop . Similar to last year, I chatted about the fashion industry and blogosphere to impressionable young budding bloggers. This year’s group have their own blog, Lucy The Mannequin, where they are chronicling the curation and design of their own 6 piece collections, daily field trips, and daily outfit musings. After discussing my personal history with fashion and my blog we “market meandered” to Capitol Hill’s famed Eastern Market for lemonade and a lesson in posing.
The girls coincidentally wore pink florals to the tastes of their own style and adhering to current trends. I loved J’s high-waisted applique shorts and E’s printed kimono top. They amped up the looks with the details; J playing in to her hipster gypsy with layered rings and bracelets and E going a little southern with cropped cowboy boots.
As for me I embraced a “glam professional” persona; silky lightweight culottes with a crisp button down and costumed pearls.
I was so inspired by these girls and so honored to be able to chat with them about my experiences! To see more of E and J’s looks, be sure to check out their blog Lucy the Mannequin.
