A Beauitful December

5 Dec

I love living in San Francisco, especially during this time of year. Trees are up, ice skating rinks are all around and lights keep the city bright all day long. We had a storm here a few days ago with crazy winds and rain, my dog was not a huge fan but it officially made it feel like winter to me. The tree lighting ceremony on Pier 39 was beautiful as always this year, and of course I couldn’t resist buying some Mini Donuts and eating them all, they are too delicious!

With school Finals only a couple of weeks away, I decided to head to Union Square and attempt to get some Christmas shopping done early. As usual, I got sidetracked and took a seat next to the tree with my favorite Caramel Brulee Latte from Starbucks. You have to hand it to Macy’s, they know how to get in the holiday spirit. Their building is decorated beautifully with large wreaths and lights, while their tree is picture perfect.

After a day of shopping and coffee, my dog was waiting anxiously for a walk in his new red jacket. When I got him home after some fun at the park, the sunset was unreal I could hardly believe my eyes. The sky was pink as far as the eye could see and the clouds created a blanket over the city. December definitely is a beautiful month, what’s your favorite part of this time of year?

Street Style, Preppy Chic

7 Nov

 

Hot days in November are very rare here in San Francisco, so a group of us took advantage of the weather and went wine tasting the other day. There were a lot of fashionable people at the winery and I loved seeing everyone’s cute and comfy outfits perfect for the heat. This is Christine, whose picture I took at the winery in San Carlos, Ca. Christine is 24 years old and is currently in school to become an elementary school teacher. I absolutely loved the look that she put together and believe it is a great example of street style. When describing her personal style, she said that it could often be classified as preppy as well as adventurous. She looks to fashion magazines, style blogs and her friends for inspiration while also maintaining her own style identity. Christine defined fashion as trends that are popular at the time as well as a means for people to express themselves.

Street Style, Fashion Forward

7 Nov

 

This is a picture of a friend of mine named Austin, who was visiting me in the city today. I have always loved her style and she is a great example of street wear trends. Street wear is about people creating their own looks and trends, which is why I chose to photograph Austin. She is 25 years old who just became a Doctor of Physical Therapy. Austin defined her style as one that is ever-changing and that can not be defined. Fashion blogs are a huge inspiration to her and she looks to her favorite bloggers, such as Emily Schuman, for new trends and inspirations to try. She considers her fashion sense a mix of preppy and feminine, which I agree with. When asked what she would define fashion as, she said “Whatever styles are currently popular or up and coming, including apparel, accessories and so on.”

 

Street Style, Hippie Chic

7 Nov

 

Street Style is a huge inspiration for me, from friends to strangers, street fashion is a huge part of the industry. This is Heidi, she is 21 years old and lives in Santa Cruz, California. Heidi is a nursing student, as well as a fashionista. I took this photo of her in Golden Gate Park in the city. What attracted me to her look was the youthfulness and uniqueness that came across in her ensemble. When I asked her how she would define her own style she said that she would consider herself a “modern, feminine, fashionable hippy,” a description I loved! She said that she loves creating her own looks and playing with accessories, as seen from her hip headband and bracelets. She said that in her opinion fashion means being able to express yourself through clothes and creating looks that make you feel confident.
