Two-Toned

Happy Sunday everyone! It's not my style to complain, but boy, am I glad it's the weekend. I caught a cold (surprisingly during this heat wave) for the first time in over a year, which made running around the city all the more exhausting. Thank goodness I recovered with some home cooking and hugs! Now that I'm home, I'm happily spending more time with my parents, grandparents, and brotherwhether we're all getting glammed up for a wedding, or whether I'm simply spending 10 minutes before bed to snuggle with grandma and enjoy music with grandpa. With them, life is perfect. 

Last weekend, my dad and I spent a few hours in our backyard taking photos of each other with my new Nikon D3100 (graduation gift!). Coming from an artistic family that loves fashion, this was a fun and creative way to spend Father's Day. Here's the first look of our father-daughter photo shoot.


Dress: Express  
Earrings: Givenchy, here
Sunglasses: Versace
Clutch: H&M 
Shoes: Zara, here

This is definitely a casual, straightforward look with minimal color play and accessories. My favorite part of it is probably the matching silver hardware in the buttons, earrings, and sunglasses. What about you? The photo of the shoes was taken by Khiem Tran, and the last photo features my pops. Thanks for stopping by for this brief post! More to come once I'm feeling better :)

  18. Aww... Jess this is such a sweet post. I can't wait to go home next week to snuggle with mommy next week (never too old...). Your dad is too cute! My dad is probably the opposite of yours... he is so strict and critical but luckily he approves of my style (but not so much my little sister's).

    Love your hair! It makes me wish my hair would grow out faster I had a bad experience attempting to get a lob aka long bob and it's still growing out. I also need to be patient and grow out my bangs.

    Can't wait for part 2.

    xo,

    Jess

    2. Not usually, though I feel this year has been colder than average. I guess we're just not used to cold weather in general, and I didn't feel I had a proper summer since it was a bit rainy and not sunny throughout :p
