MONOCHROME

MonochromeOOTD_004

Ever since I saw NotJessFashion kill her version of a Power Suit in a badass head-to-toe red look, I’ve been obsessed with monochromatic outfits. My personal style fluctuates often, but right now I’m loving the easy sophistication of the monochrome trend.  This dusty blue blazer is one of my favorite pieces. It’s the perfect shade of blue to pair with light or dark colors and it’s oversize style makes it east to wear and move around in. Perfect if you want to look good and without sacrificing comfort.

This look was easy to put together, which is great if you struggle to get out the door in the morning like I do. And it feels really polished so I don’t have to worry about looking as frazzled as I feel.

THE NEW ADDAMS FAMILY

In the frigid fall air in rural Oregon a pair of hikers wandered into an abandoned family farm. Hidden among the overgrown weeds and the remains of the family’s tattered belongings the hikers discovered 4 small children living as ghosts. The children, without proper care from an adult developed a survivalist lifestyle, becoming accustomed to the harsh weather and using the piles of broken materials and tools as play toys in their dangerous games.

The hikers were struck by the children right away and immediately started taking photos. The children seemed almost used to their presence, and led the awestruck documentarians  around their home.

 

This was one of my favorite shoots I did this year! I love shooting with my nieces and nephew. They are such great models and always down for whatever crazy idea I want them to try. The love scary stuff and The Walking Dead is one of their favorite shows. For this shoots, I wanted something like The Walking Dead meets Kid Nation, that ill conceived Fox reality show following the lives of 20 children abandoned in the middle of no where and forced to compete to survive.  The final product just screaaaaamed ‘Addams Family’, don’t you think?
