Fashionistas, I used last weekend for some much needed “me” time and my oh my, was it productive! I suggest that everyone take a mini-break, even if it just for a day of self-care. 
During my break, I went to the beach, hit a few concerts, experimented with DIY jewelry, and booked a mini photo shoot with one of my favorite photographers, Stefany. Her work is always colorful and vibrant. I can tell we are artistically inspired by similar themes!

I modeled several outfits consisting of poppy Goodwill finds during the photo shoot. For this look, I rocked an” uncharacteristically-Carolyn” outfit that combined cool tones and my retro-remixed aesthetic. My top is actually a fun, patterned bodysuit by Adidas, a brand that I’ve always loved since Run DMC made it cool. To keep it low key on the bottom, I couldn’t help but wear a mint-colored skater skirt. Although I usually pattern mix, I felt that this skirt matched the blues in the bodysuit, while still being playful and eye-catching.

Naturally, my beloved vintage gold earrings were the perfect accessories to bring this look together. They harken back to 80’s style – so easy, yet so stylin’!
