daytime glamour

One: the city of Richmond gets so ridiculously bright. I don’t even understand why, but I’m blinded whenever I go out without my sunglasses (as you can clearly see in these photos; rookie mistake!) This shoot = squint city.
Two: This is pretty much the closest thing to an all-black ensemble that you’ll see me in. It was really hot piece to wear(temperature-wise), so I’ll stick with my usual colorful ensembles. However, how luxe looking is this H&M dress? Pretty sure I only paid $25ish bucks for it, looks like it could retail for much more!
Three: I’m kind of obsessed with maxi dresses during the summer. Or really any kind of onesie piece in the summer. It’s too hot and humid in RVA to do a crazy amount of layering right now and it’s an effortless way to look stylish.
