Well, I still haven’t completely moved out of my studio. And by “haven’t completely moved out,” I mean that I haven’t moved a single thing since my mom and stepdad were visiting. I’m procrastinating because it’s depressing, but I think my being in limbo is the worst part. There’s not much left to move; most of the big stuff has been moved and I’ve kept my lighting there so I can still shoot while I have the space. But it’s just figuring out what to do with the small stuff — and selling or donating what’s left of the furniture. Anyone in need of a large, pink industrial cart or a shabby chic desk?
Anyway, life goes on. Call me basic, but I love Fall, so I’m looking forward to focusing on all of its offerings. I’m not much of a pumpkin spice latte person, but I love apple cider donuts, pumpkin pie, changing leaves, and Halloween! You’d better believe I already started my Halloween looks (although I’m not sure how I’ll top last year’s Haunted Mansion stretching portraits), and I jumped at the opportunity to wear some layers. You know I love that jacket/sweater with bare legs kind of weather! Bobby and I went uptown and got some lunch/took some photos before my appointment at KUR (for a PCA chemical peel — read more about them here). Since I was going for a slightly more aggressive retinol peel, I wanted to make sure I got in some social time (and some photos for upcoming projects!) before my skin started peeling. I’m currently on day 2 and am only peeling minimally, so it doesn’t look like I’ll need any downtime at all. I still see great results — I swear by peels — but is it weird that sometimes I miss the satisfaction of seeing my skin shed like a snake?
How did I go from moving out, to Fall, to chemical peels? Just a real talent for having absolutely no direction, I suppose. But let’s bring it back to this outfit: will I ever get over my love of vintage inspired dressing? I think not. It seems to be a lifelong commitment.
