Photo Shoot

NYFW Outfit 1

IMG_0047

Hi everyone! These past few days have been a whirlwind. Everything happened so quickly from me flying out to New York City for fashion week to collaborating with Chictopia on a couple videos to flying back for a friend’s wedding within the span of 2 days. I’m also helping plan and wrap up the details for another friend’s upcoming bachelorette! Of course it doesn’t stop there as I am working on other videos and collaborations as well. My brain has been running a bajillion miles a second but I wouldn’t have it any other way :) Typing out this post is actually bringing me a lot of peace at the moment.

Luckily we were able to do a quick shoot of the first outfit I wore in New York. I actually carried my black faux leather backpack which carried my cameras, Madden Girl flats (a must!), and other essentials in turn explaining the absence of a clutch or small handbag. I found this dress last week and fell in love with its mix of patterns, cut outs, and how I didn’t have to worry about piecing together separates as I quickly packed for this trip. I feel like this dress makes more of a subtle statement in the faded print and it in a way symbolizes where I am at this point in my life. I definitely am at a crossroad of being a girl and a woman (cue the Britney song!) and I am just feeling all sorts of feels. Descriptive, I know. The shoes were needed to liven up the look and because i’ve worn them so many times I knew they wouldn’t be killer on my feet :) Wow, I was rather chatty today so we’ll sign off here! Stay tuned for more outfit posts!

Beach Day

Xteeener - Nassau Beach Shoot - 01Life is so not a beach when you’re at this kind of beach!  When I stepped onto the smooth white sand and caught sight of the clear blue water up ahead I literally gasped.  Just breathtaking.  There were also very few people on this beach at Nassau which only elevated the perfection of it all.  In some ways this was like the calm before the storm as I prepare myself, physically and mentally, for my first New York Fashion Week experience.  Pinch me, i’m dreaming.  More posts regarding what i’m doing in New York to come!

I thought it would be fun to do a throwback for throwback Thursday. Realizing that I never shared these pictures shot by my talented friend, Hannah Gweun, it seemed appropriate. This was a fun impromptu shoot after grabbing a bite from Urthe Caffe in downtown LA last Fall. I look back and reminisce on how amazing my experience of temporarily moving to a different city was. For me it’s a great reminder to never stop dreaming and that life is too short. :)

Actively Living

Hey everyone! We last left off with exploring and further experiencing life in L.A. and as you may know Matt and I decided to plant ourselves back in Atlanta. There is still much to discover in our hometown and I truly love it here. Really the only point I’m making is that life is what you make of it regardless of where you are. Too deep too soon? Well you know..haha :) 20140123-190602.jpg
One of our goals, or I guess in lieu of the new year, “resolutions” for 2014 is to set time to be more active and continue exploring.

Which brings us to the new Pumas. It’s like a nice little reminder of “get away from that computer every now and then!”.

Red Rock Canyon

IMG_8786

Hi everyone! I just got back from a trip to Las Vegas with my family. Oddly enough the only times i’ve been out here is with my family. This was my first time visiting this beautiful scenic route out at Red Rock Canyon. Despite the temperature reaching record highs we managed to get some shots. It was hard to choose which ones as my sister Sadie did such a great job with this impromptu shoot. :) Hope you enjoy the images!

Moss Meets Neon

I have to admit this outfit didn’t come “naturally” to me even though it kind of exudes a nature-like and earthy vibe doesn’t it? Ok sorry but if we are going to be friends you’re going to have to put up with my lame jokes 😛

Many days I question and struggle with what I want to wear. This one was a result of dumping another outfit that I felt was too try-hard for the mood I was in that day.

Christine_04-16-2013_023

I told myself to dial it down and go with something casual; more effortless. The last missing component was of course: SHOES! Why else do we girls always feel like we need a billion shoes?

Even if in your mind you may think “nope that is just a strange pairing”, try it anyways! Many pairs of shoes later, I slipped on the neon sandals and smiled with content :)
