Sometimes the cold weather is actually some sort of blessing in disguise. Wendy and I try to get together once every week to shoot for one another, and this past Saturday was no different. We wanted to find an indoor location this time because the temperatures dropped below zero and the flurries were coming down quickly. We winded up at Ricarda's and the space was perfect for what we needed to accomplish. The atmosphere was very inviting, grand and chic. Instead of just shooting, we decided to actually sit down and enjoy a nice brunch together. We spent the afternoon talking about relationships, weddings, work and so much more. It was quite bittersweet because we used to work together and would laugh at how often we would see one another. This is no longer the case, but I still value moments like these where we can just hang out and catch up.
I wore this elegant lace embroidered top with bell sleeves and it paired nicely with the aesthetics of the restaurant. I'm obsessed with the frayed neck and full-zipper back. We were in awe because the natural light and the reflected surfaces worked so well together. I went with a more laid-back vibe by styling the top with these new Levi's distressed boyfriend jeans that I picked out at NEON Clothing. It was my first pair of Levi's jeans, but it definitely won't be my last because they are just so comfortable!
