Breaking the Fog

Zara faux leather jacket | H&M blouse | Forever 21 maxi skirt

Yesterday's fog and rain were prime examples of the strange weather we've been having here. From arctic temperature drops to humid rain showers, the tri-state area has been experiencing it all. These photos were part of a spontaneous shoot during the calm of the storm. While the weather created difficulties for driving, it actually turned out quite perfect for this quick shoot. The fog allowed for a bold contrast with my red maxi skirt, and the wind created some lovely movement in my outfit. It was actually a quite lovely break before the storm, though also short-lived.

Since it was unusually warm and humid, I decided to wear this bold chiffon maxi skirt. Especially in the summer, its lightness is perfect for easy movement. The faux leather jacket juxtaposes the skirt's loud color to make it more suitable for winter. The blend of edgy and feminine pieces creates an effect that perfectly exhibits of my style. This may be my last post before my trip (wink wink), so expect some travel diaries coming up, hopefully! Thanks for stopping by, and I'll talk to you from a new location soon!
