Solsbury (Federal) Hill

I was feeling part of the scenery
I walked right out of the machinery
My heart going boom boom boom
“Hey” he said “Grab your things
I’ve come to take you home.”

Sahra_Final_-5Sahra_Final_-4 Sahra_Final_-6 FBP8These photos were shot right here in Baltimore over the breezy weekend, on Federal Hill overlooking the inner harbor. I worked with a new photographer, who has potential to be the EffortlessCool official photographer; great potential! He brought some great creativity to our shoot and definitely knew what he was doing; which is refreshing and exciting to me. I’m hoping to put in motion plenty of ideas I’ve had for the blog mulling around inside my head.
Anyway, this was definitely a fun set to shoot, despite the bone chilling wind. I loved the cityscape background mixed with the earthy tones, which lent a hand to playing up the similar colors in my outfit. Seeing the skyline and harbor is really making me fall in love with my new home and I’ve been loving seeing more of what it has to offer, even if my Brooklyn Bones are still aching for the streets I formerly called home.

We Know That Our Hearts Are Just Made Out of Strings

A second post from the whirlwind that has been my settling into life in the DMV! It’s been tedious…It’s been work. I’ve been unpacking, working, traveling, trying my best to explore and socialize, et cetera. What I’m craving most? A nice, relaxing evening involving a chill bean bag (remember those!?) and a movie with a bottle of wine, or a champagne cocktail. Alas, there’s much to be explored as I’m on the hunt for the perfect blog photographer, group of friends, brunch restaurant, lunch spot, dinner diggs, quality man; amongst maintaining my life at my new “home” with friends and new job. Confused/overwhelmed? So am I. These photos were shot by an area photographer, Kevin, who’s work can be found on his site here. He’s got a great eye and some great ideas, so I’m hoping you’ll be seeing more of his work up here!

Sporty and Flirty and Thriving

20130414-190104.jpg
Greetings from my new home of Baltimore, Maryland! I’ve officially been here a week and what a whirlwind it has been! I’ve started my new job, unpacked my home, ventured to the nation’s capital city, and so much more! It’s gone by quickly and the warm weather has only added to my “new locale” pleasure and excitement.
Here’s an outfit I wore to work this week, taking advantage of said warm weather and playing with textures, playing it sporty and flirty, for my thriving life (13 going on 30, anyone!?)

Now’s The Time To Be Alive

So stay awake with me awhile.
Rise and Shine.

Greetings from Baltimore! This is a casual and cozy outfit I wore to brunch with my MD/VA friends on a rainy day. The iridescent Narciso Rodriguez for Kohl’s sweater was chic and warm, just what I need for a chilly February morning. Coupled with some rolled jeans and my favorite H&M ankle booties, and I had myself a look that wasn’t too over the top, but still stayed true to my fashionable personality.
For brunch we went to Golden West Cafe, in the Hamden-Canton area of Baltimore. I felt at home in it’s hipster vibe, reminding me of my local Providence haunt of Julian’s. The Tex-Mex brunch was deliciously filling, and the salsa was almost too spicy too handle, even for a spice-queen like me.

Pinky Promises

It’s the end of the semester and I’m behind on about two projects…or four. I’m swamped at work and barely get time to sleep.

Hence my lack of updating. I apologize. I look fairly cute most days, in my opinion, and fashionable too, but there’s never time or anyone to help me with images. If you’d actually like to see my daily looks, feel free to follow me on Tumblr here. I post boobs and tattoos and other inspiring fashion images as well, but there is definitely a daily outfit shot taken with my iPhone, if you’d like to stay updated.

I was also in Baltimore this weekend, so I’ll have a post coming soon about that.

In the meantime, I wanted to pinky promise that, in two weeks when school is finished, you’ll see more posts from me. Thank you for staying loyal, my followers!

I leave you with a preview of Baltimore:

Everything is Wet and Awkward

I took a trp down tIo Baltimore this weekend to visit one of my closest friends. It was a grand ol’┬átime; whiskey and vodka were drank, sushi and many a taco and nacho were consumed, and the weather was nearing 50 degrees! I even wore a skirt, as you can see, and stepped out of my UGG’s and Uniqlo tights for once.

Forever 21 Jacket

JCrew Cable Knit

Foreve 21 Skirt

H&M Floral Tights

Old Navy Boots

These were taken on a particular wet day in which we accidentally locked ourselves out of the house until someone came to rescue us with the spare key. Later that day we helped a clearly drugged/high guy who had gotten into a severe car accident on the highay call the police. And then ate pounds and pounds of mexican food. Needless to say, this was the most exciting day of the trip, and I think I looked damn cute for it!
