Back to the Basics, With a Twist

back to the basics

Last week my wonderfully talented friend, Victoria, and I took a little day trip to the Arts District in Downtown LA for a fun day shoot. 

I opted for a fairly casual look, keeping it monochrome and minimal with my all-black ensemble. To keep it interesting, though, I played around quite a bit with shape and texture. 

From the loose-fitting, pleated, backless jumpsuit to croc-embossed leather and chain detailing throughout, there was quite a bit to keep the monochrome palette interesting!

The jumpsuit itself I purchased while in Oslo from a secondhand boutique during a shopping trip through Grünerløkka. My belt is from a Scandinavian brand called Monki (purchased on Asos), and my purse and booties are ZARA.

Overall, this is a pretty affordable ensemble that I like to think looks more luxe than the price tag. Dig it? Scroll through for more details  + + +
