TOP c/o Samantha Pleet SKIRT American Apparel SHOES Super old F21

Happy 2016! Like everybody else at the beginning of the year, I have been doing a lot of re-evaluating and planning for the year ahead and feeling a bit overwhelmed, nervous, but also hopeful!

Here is an outfit that I have been wearing almost nonstop: a creamy lilac Samantha Pleet top - with a Peter Pan collar, silver moon on the pocket, and finished with a scalloped hem! I paired it with a tennis skirt, white tights, and my beloved pair of glittery silver boots I got in... I think it was 2012? Ahhh!

In this get up, I couldn't help but feel like a girl scout in training to be an astronaut - and wanted the pictures to reflect that! In my mind I conjured up an image of me "sitting on the moon", but no idea how to make it happen. But after an intense brain storming session, I went to the craft store, and, after several hours making a huge mess and leaving a trail of silver scraps and silver confetti everywhere (... heh?) my moon was created! I named him Marcello. And shout out to my mother and grandmother for helping me figure out the posing and angles, haha!

I'm really happy with how these photos turned out! I always have really grand ideas but never am able to quite achieve what I want - but I think this is the closest I've ever gotten to it and I'm so happy! Even if I *did* fall "out" of the moon four times trying to get these shots...

Here's to 2016!
