Baby, Pull Me Closer

A personal photoshoot inspired by The Chainsmokers’ hit, Closer

If you haven’t been able to tell from past blog posts, I don’t focus on my personal style and outfitting.

Why?

Because I don’t have a dream budget to hire a team or a live-in photographer boyfriend with a DSLR to take all sorts of stylish pictures necessary for running a proper style blog.

Most of my blog content relies on a set of core topics, more compelling copy and basic flat-lays or travel pictures, edited so perfectly with my iPhone 6 plus—but it is finally time to embrace the occasional photoshoot for the blog.

Inspired by the pop anthem of 2016, these photos are part-fashion diary, part-love letter and part-portfolio update (in that order).

I had the pleasure of working with Maaike Bernstrom for this shoot in Newport, Rhode Island—we’ve worked together on projects for Laura Jean and The Newport Blast and I couldn’t trust anyone else to help bring this vision to life. After Maaike and I booked the date, I made sure to schedule my hair salon at JF3 Salon for earlier the same day.

So yes. This is it. This is me. Trying to be casual. Yet also trying not to be too casual.

But definitely trying to have nice pictures for my inevitable blog revamp.

Please be kind. I know I’m not a model. I’m barely five feet tall, sell clothing as my day job and write as my passion and side-hustle…

Closer by The Chainsmokers feat. Halsey

Hey

I was doing just fine before I met you

I drink too much and that’s an issue
But I’m okay

Hey
You tell your friends it was nice to meet them
But I hope I never see them again
I know it breaks your heart
Moved to the city in a broke-down car
And four years, no calls
Now you’re looking pretty in a hotel bar
And I can’t stop

No I can’t stop
So, baby, pull me closer
In the back seat of your Rover
That I know you can’t afford
Bite that tattoo on your shoulder
Pull the sheets right off the corner
Of that mattress that you stole
From your roommate back in Boulder
We ain’t ever getting older
We ain’t ever getting older
We ain’t ever getting older

You look as good as the day I met you

I forget just why I left you,
I was insane

Stay 
And play that Blink-182 song
That we beat to death in Tucson,
Okay

I know it breaks your heart
Moved to the city in a broke-down car

And four years, no call
Now I’m looking pretty in a hotel bar
And I can’t stop
No, I can’t stop
So, baby, pull me closer
In the back seat of your Rover
That I know you can’t afford
Bite that tattoo on your shoulder
Pull the sheets right off the corner
Of that mattress that you stole
From your roommate back in Boulder
We ain’t ever getting older
We ain’t ever getting older

No, we ain’t ever getting older
