Get the Ethereal Feel

I've really been digging the whole Ethereal feel I've been seeing in some of the photographers shoots that I look at. I think I'm going to try to grab a flower crown and my photographer and go wild with being earthy and gentle in one of our shoots. Until then, I wanted to make a little inspiration post for all of us! I'll get ideas of what I want to wear, all-the-while showing you all how to get the Ethereal vibe.

1. Get clothes that match the color of your skin or lighter.

2. Refuse to Wear Pants.

3. Go with the flow. It's okay.

4. Wear a crown of flowers.

5. Have perfectly tousled hair.


6. Channel your inner nymph.


And there you go! How to look Ethereal. Put all of the above together and you've got the perfect outfit for a stroll in the woods or for a potential photo shoot! What do you all think?

Darkness Can Be Beautiful

 Spring has finally arrived, and, although an abundance of colors has now blossomed, the sky grows darker. Tornadoes, fast winds, devastation, all thrown on full blast this season. Hail fled from the clouds and crushed the newly risen grass and broke the branches who's xylem had finally reached the tips of even it's smallest sprigs. Oh well, with destruction comes restoration; it brings, not only communities, but strangers and outsiders together as well.

ABOUT THE LOOK: I've been so excited about spring, but it's been dark and stormy for days now. Andrea and I were going to do this shoot at the train station again, but we decided to try something new because of the way the weather was working the lighting. It made it a little mysterious, which I liked. It was a different than our normal shoots. I wore Andrea's gorgeous cutout dress that has anchors printed on it (Love it!). It matched the background quite nicely I believed. Plus, if you look closely, you can spot my newly ombred hair! It goes to red because I wanted something different and didn't want to bleach my hair. 

 BEHIND THE SCENES: Just one behind the scenes today. It was incredibly windy out and my hair swung out all around my face nearly the entire time! It's always hard to keep my lion mane under control.

Denim Days #5

Why is she in such a melancholy mood? Sia is singing Kill and Run on repeat in her head, but it gets her creativeness flowing. Being like this gives her inspiration. She's so excited. She's going to write a book and feeling this way is going to help her do it.

ABOUT THE LOOK: Do not, and I repeat, Do Not cry. This is the last of the Denim Days series. My faithful acid wash,, Rue 21 denim shirt has been through many clothing changes and here is the finale. Glam, rocker, punkish, slightly hobbit-esque at times, this look says it all.

BEHIND THE SCENES: Don't judge this face. Or do. I'll never know. Just look at it and bask in it awkwardness.

Denim Days #4

 Is this all the world has to offer her? War, corruption, hatred, loveless-lives, tears, that thumping in her chest caused after she listens to the news. The world is full of life, but seems to be lacking love. She wants to change people's lives. She wants to help people in need. Feed the hungry, give to the poor. If everybody just that, the world could finally be harmonious.

ABOUT THE LOOK: For this denim shirt look, I went all artsy fartsy. Acid wash jeans that I can't if they're purple or an awkward blue, cheetah print shoes, retro glasses and a hat! That's what I'm talking about. Clothes are all about being able to express yourself and, let me tell you, wearing this was the most fun shoot so far because I didn't care if I looked silly or was acting stupid. This outfit let me be me. How revolutionary. I don't care who you are, what you look like, or what your style is; let your inner artist out and put on something extraordinarily crazy and just walk around in it!

 BEHIND THE SCENES: What better to do in the middle of downtown than attempting (And hardcore failing) parcore on a brick wall?! I also claimed a chunk of cement as my own!

Denim Days #3

 Knowledge. Forget you; literally. School is coming to an end and everything she learned, she will most likely forget. Every penny she spend on the facts swimming around in her mind and memory will soon be forgotten as thoughts of sunscreen and freedom creep throughout the cavities of her mind.

ABOUT THE LOOK: It's warm out! Or, at least it was when I took these pictures. Now we have about four inches of snow out here in Missouri. Mother nature and I need to have a serious talk. Anyway, Denim Days part III!! Same shirt, different styling. I went for a boho chic look today. I had a blazer (Hence sophistication), floral shorts, heels and a headband (A La Boho). What do you all think?

 BEHIND THE SCENES: Well, well, well. What do you know? I didn't stay serious for the whole shoot. I'm beginning to see some repetition here.
