shorts by Friend of Mine
Today I am....very happy. I am getting back into my yoga routine, shaking off negative energy, and really just feel amazing. I truly feel like it was reflected in this shoot, it is probably my favorite so far. I really love how these photos came out and I hope you do to. This is a typical minimal look of mine. I like simple. The tee and shorts are two of my recent ebay finds. After losing my gray Chuck Taylor's at Bonnaroo (tear), I found my old black ones in a trash bag of shoes my mom was going to give away. I have had these shoes since the 9th grade and have no idea how they ended up in that bag. But, they are back where they rightfully belong, and I sprung them back to life with some new mint and silver shoelaces.
For a college town, State College has its little romantic nooks and crannies. Today we shot at the Tavern, which is a more upscale restaurant right across the street from campus. The Tavern is a beautiful old building seated on a cute brick alley way. I love seeking out these perfect little spots with my boyfriend, Billy, who handles the photography on my blog. I am thinking about investing in a SLR camera and taking up a new hobby because he is unfortunately leaving in a few weeks. He's going to kick off his film career in New York while I finish up my last year of school here. He is teaching me how to use his gorgeous camera (I took the last picture of the flag and window!), and not only do I love taking pictures, but I love learning from him. I can't believe I only have 4 days of work left and then the two of us are off to the beach with his family.
