New City, New Look

New City, New Look




Moving to Atlanta from New York has been a great decision, but I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t an adjustment.  New home, new job, and the need to build a new community.  All of these things can be exciting, but they can also be daunting especially when you invest time and love to your existing ones.


Well, I’m slowly making new friends and connections – one of which happens to be an AMAZING photographer and blogger by the name of Cat Galletti.  I met Cat through Instagram (of course, haha) and she was kind enough to grace me with her immense talents by shooting this look.  Not only did Cat make me feel comfortable “on set,” but she understood my vision for the types of photos I was hoping to capture in order to help my blog evolve.  And then, the photos turned out gorgeous (btw, if you’re looking for a photographer, I highly recommend her because her talent, infectious spirit and down-to-earth approach really makes a difference)!


I’m really happy Cat was able to shoot this look in particular, because it’s one of my absolute favorites for the Summer.  Yes, I totally wore this red, white and blue ensemble for Fourth of July – but I think I’ll pair this look with my new yellow velvet mules for my upcoming trip to the Hamptons.  The skirt, a gift from my friends at Shein – is an absolute showstopper! It’s flowy, feminine and much to my liking – versatile! For this shoot, I paired the ruffled skirt with an equally feminine wrap top with an oversized bow.  But, I can’t wait to also wear it with a graphic tee and moto jacket for an edgier vibe.  Best thing about this outfit – the price! Can you believe this skirt is ONLY $30!! I’m newly obsessed with Shein, because they have such a variety of stylish clothes that truly don’t break the bank. I find myself checking the site every couple of days for new pieces that I can rotate into my wardrobe that won’t give me buyer’s remorse over the pricetag.


Thanks to Shein for the beautiful skirt and I can’t wait to share my other new, Summer looks with you all.  And of course, thanks to the talented Cat Galleti for the memorable shoot!


And in case you’re wondering… here are some other items I plan on ordering from Shein soon!


Royal Blue Ruffle Blouse


Red Floral A-Line Dress


Blue Striped Deep-V Sleeveless Dress


Cactus Print T-Shirt

    Having recently moved countries, I can relate to getting used to everything new. It’s not easy, it can be challenging but it also pushes us to explore new possibilities. That’s so amazing how you got to connect with Cat, and she sure did capture these images perfectly. You look amazing, Lauren!
