It feels so good to be blogging again! I feel like I’ve just been constantly on the move during this past month and a half. (If you follow me on Instagram, you probably have an idea of what I’m talking about.) I went from camping at Big Sur one weekend to New Orleans the next, followed by a trip to LA for Generation Beauty. I went to a couple concerts and on a nature adventure to Point Bonita. (A photo diary entry coming soon on that!) Living life has been really fun but I’ve missed having time to just sit and write.
I am so excited because I have quite a number of posts coming up (which means, no more false promises)! Recently, I collaborated with fashion and street style photographer, Ryan Chua, who helped me bring my “girl-on-the-go” concept to life. This is just the first set of many from our shoot together.

I think my style, as of late, has been influenced by the busy lifestyle I’ve had these past couple of months. This outfit makes me feel bold and sophisticated. It definitely brings out my more confident side, which is so fitting for my current situation. With my travels came a lot of first-time experiences that really pushed me out of my comfort zone and forced me to be more independent. Before going to New Orleans, I had never been on a flight for more than an hour and I had to fly completely on my own. (I’ve only flown four times!) The South is also quite different from my home in California, so it was such a culture shock!
I loved putting this outfit together because mixing the mohair-like texture with the leopard pattern was really fun. I would wear this look again (or a similar one!) for a night out with my girlfriends. And maybe it’s just me, but these shoes from DailyLook are a lot more comfortable than you may think! I love how it can add a new level of chic to an outfit.
Hope you enjoyed this blog post and my little analysis of how my style was influenced by some changes and crazy adventures lately. It just goes to show you that so many things can influence your personal style and clothing choice. This outfit definitely shows the stronger side of my personality. Before I went off on my travels, I was a lot more lax and had more of a boho style, but I love to mix it up!

And don’t forget to check out Ryan’s blog to see more of his amazing work. I honestly can’t wait to share our other photo sets with you.
