I've always wanted to do a photo shoot in a library, is that weird? I think it's a mix between rebellion and nerdiness which is pretty much epitome of who I am. So when my homegirl Katie owner of Fawn Doe & Bello Foto asked me where I wanted to shoot I said, “A LIBRARY" in a heartbeat, so there we went. Our shoot consisted of way too many laughs and constant paranoia that a librarian would kick us out but luckily to our surprise no one did. We also shot outside and while laying on the ground I saw the moon through the clouds, that's why I named the title of this post, "Katie I Can See The Moon." Mainly because I kept saying it to her through many laughs. Katie is so incredibly talented and I am lucky to call her a close friend of mine. Unfortunately the University of Michigan will be snatching her away from me pretty soon, but we're gonna make the best out of the rest of the summer!

I am wearing a Josephine Collective shirt, Village Collection shorts, black oxfords, and these FLY Betsey Johnson sunglasses I seemed to hide from myself for 2 months. I'm going to have such a hard time giving up shorts when summer is over, but I am in love with these maroon shorts from Village they are so unique. Do you like this nail polish? It's like having macaroni & cheese straight on my nails I am wearing Nails Inc. Neons in Westbourne Grove. I love, love, love these photos that Katie took so much ='( Thanks again love

Last week I had the chance to do another shoot with the fabulous Helen Peng. As usual it was a fun shoot, really chill, and all that good stuff. I sneaked in my new pair of shorts  from my fave store ever Bogatte =) They are from the brand Lovecat and acid washed. I had been eying them for quite some time so I finally decided I would just order them. Usually I am cautious when I buy light washed denim or a light acid wash because I think there is too much of a contrast with my tan skin, but these jeans weren't too light at all. ^_^ I am also wearing a black printed blouse from XXI, a belt from eBay, and ankle boots (which you can't see). I am loving this summer sun. Cannot believe this week is almost over, I am going to a concert on Monday so I'll talk to y'all then!

Life has been full of: busy days, new surprises, and challenges. I have been working hard and shopping even harder. My family's study is getting filled with things for my university dorm like: a Verismo, duvet from Urban Outfitters, pajamas from J-Crew, a chalk painted table, over the door shoe hangers, giant British flag floor pillow, and even more good stuff. Needless to say I would really like to win the "Coolest Dorm Room" award...though I doubt one exists. I've been shopping for all sorts of things like my first LED Gel nail kit which I'm obsessed with- will show y'all soon, and all sorts of clothes and makeup. In other news, I went to my first bridal shower the other day and wore this lovely dress.

This happens to be one of my faves. I got it at a flea market in NY but it is also on Modcloth called the "Pup Rally Dress." It's sort of ironic because my friend whose bridal shower I went to, has two dogs just like on the dress. Personally, I really dislike dogs collectively especially hers, but I couldn't pass up this dress. I am also wearing a flower crown I got from China, Chinaglaze polish in For Audrey, and Kat Von D "Oh My Goth" lipstick. My wonderful friend Helen Peng took these gnarly photos and she is also doing freelance senior photography in KC, seriously. CHECK IT OUT CHECK IT OUT CHECK IT OUT! I will be shooting with Helen again, pretty soon (; keep following!

There's nothing I love more than: Rooney Mara, the YYY's, coffee, leather jackets, makeup, reading, NYC, and black & white. Oh wait, but there is. The Down Town by Calvin Klein perfume ad is perfect. It resembles the elegant life of the classic 21st century woman. Every time I watch this video it just reminds me of how Rooney Mara is a flawless example of a modern day Audrey Hepburn. AMIRITE? Disagree? I'm not the only believer in this theory. Check out this vid, it's perf.

I really appreciate being friends with people who are photographers, artists, models, fashion designers, stylists, and so on. Not only is it nice to have people who you can text in the middle of the afternoon and be like, "Wanna do a photoshoot today" but having creative people in your life enhances your abilities! I have some pretty talented friends, an old dear friend of mine Luke drew a picture of me for JeMappelle and I love it. Luke is a fantastic artist and as long as I can remember he has been drawing. I'm so proud to have it as my main sidebar

As the hot summer weather beckons big musicians to tour, it also brings me to the "great outdoors." There's something about a hot summer day and a great night with friends that makes summer all more than worth it. As I was parading through the sale section of Urban Outfitters I came across these orange floral printed jeans. Made of spandex and cotton, and a premium lightweight skinny jean. Tripp NYC Orange Paradise Flower Jeans (49.99 in case anyone wants to buy me some..) are much cooler than your average coloured jeans. They will definitely have enough stretch for John Mayer and the Killers when I see them. I'll probably dance the whole John Mayer concert. I think a white graphic tank, denim shirt, silk tank, or a blazer would be perfect to make the jeans a little more versatile for summer. Don't forget to protect yourself against the sun, and drink some coconut water!

New York City was too good to me, but it's nice to be safe and sound back home in KC. Bryant Park, Upper East Side, the Hamptons, Coney Island, cool Manhattan days, need I go on? I'm not quite ready to start all my unpacking much less the transition back into reality/my crazy work schedule, but I am excited to be back. I've missed y'all too much!
