You ever felt like you were on the cusp of something new? Something big? Something fun? As we finish up the first half of the year this month, I can’t help but be optimistic for the rest of the 2018. Maybe it’s the slew of vacations I have planned or maybe I’m just manifesting the change I want to see? Whatever it is, it’s definitely coming threw in my wardrobe choices. I seriously can’t tell you the last time I bought an ankle length dress, but this one from Urban Outfitters was so darling I couldn’t pass it up—especially since it was on sale. Actually everything I’m wearing was off the sales rack.

Word of advice: Never sleep on the sale section, especially in between seasons.

Out of all the photos Tatianna took from this shoot I like these the best. We went to at least 4 or 5 different murals around Chicago between Harrison and Roosevelt. Just snapping pictures of each other on our phones and chatting about this and that. Lovely way to start the summer.

Back In Detroit

Went to Detroit again for a quick visit. I was short on time, so I took a few photos outside my parents house. You can see the vacant lot across the street in a few shots. The original owner of the house died and it was rented out to some sketchy individuals. My family thinks it was burned down by the owner for the insurance money. I wouldn’t be surprised.

Easter Sunday With Jaren

DSCF0028edit

I had a marvelous Easter Sunday yesterday, and I owe most of that to The Walking Dead and hanging out with Jaren. I swear good friends are hard to find and great friends are few and far between, but I’m glad I found a great friend in Chicago. I’m happy we got to spend some time together, since our schedules have been ridiculously hectic this year. But you make time for the people you care about, which is why we were downtown on a cloudy afternoon on State Street.

We decided to meet up at Latinicity, a new restaurant in the Block 37 mall, for brunch to celebrate Jaren’s 29th birthday.   If you haven’t been, I highly recommend that you go. It was $25 for two alcoholic beverages and all you can eat Latin inspired food. And everything is made to order, so there’s no food sitting out that’s been breathed over by a bunch of nasty individuals.

After the food and mimosas, we took a bunch of photos. Jaren is a photographer, so it was fun getting her behind the lens for once. She kept saying, “I’m never the model.” And I was like, “Just act natural, girl.” I wish it hadn’t have started raining, or we’d been out longer. But, the photos we took were pretty interesting and captured the mood just right. Two friends enjoying each others company, while taking advantage of the perfect lighting.
