Jenn’s Runway to Reality {Second Edition}

I will admit…I kinda groaned when I saw the orange walking down the runways (Michael Kors, Prabal Gurung and Narciso Rodriguez to name a few). I mean…the only thing that looks good in orange is a Cheeto! If you are like me and orange is not your most flattering color, try wearing it on the bottom..skirt/shorts/shoes and pair it with a more flattering color on top. Experiment with citrus colors or sherbet, mandarin and apricot for something fresh for the spring.

My inspiration:

I am loving this fresh new neckline for the spring. It is showing skin…without showing too much skin. Baring the shoulders was a huge trend on the runways and they all did it in different ways…cutouts, extended necklines and the use of sheer material. I chose this sweet dress with the extended neckline…pair it with tights for the fall/winter and sweet sandals for the spring. I love a dress I can wear year round!

This fish net fabric was a fun addition to the runways in Europe. Giving your skirt a little peekaboo action without using the cutouts of last season. And…if you checked out the Yeezy show – you know to pair your colors.  Black on black. White on white. and Beige on beige.

We love checking out new trends and sharing them with you. However…whether you choose to wear yoga pants or 5 inch heels…Confidence+kindness are always in style.

Tuesday @ 2, April 29, 2014

It’s time for our Tuesday @ 2 project! This is a fun bi annual post that has turned into an interactive project with our readers. A glimpse into people’s lives on a random Tuesday at 2. Yesterday we had images sent to us from Australia, Japan, Canada and of course, ‘Merica.

If you are interested in participating with our next Tuesday @ 2 project,  please shoot us an email and we would love to see what you come up with.

drinking the fog

It’s been a few very busy months since we have moved to the west coast and while Eugene is very unique and hip…it is not quite New York-as far as fun celebs and events to go photograph! So I’ve been a little slow to find things to post here on the blog.

I went from being surrounded by huge amazing buildings (and didn’t think anything could beat that view) to being surrounded by these huge amazing trees.  When seeing them covered by a misty fog, it takes my breath away. Here are a few snaps from this week.

‘Merica

Not knowing if we were totally crazy or totally lucky,we packed up a Uhaul, left New York….and headed out to Oregon. I had a good laugh at all the random things we came across…the world’s largest coffee pot, a tree growing in a rock, Abraham Lincoln, the world’s largest truck stop…etc. Eleven stunning states of ‘Merica….here are some instagrammers of our trip.
