Outfit: Falling with Change

I bought another new wig a few weeks ago in hopes of changing up my look yet again. It seems change is what I revel in lately and I hardly miss the past or feel nostalgic about it. I do look back at the past and wonder about how I made it through or how carefree my life once was, but it seems I am now speeding towards evolving into my own person and I finally feel like an adult. Paying all of your own bills is gratifying, let's just say that. I love my little Chicago studio in Uptown and it's like I have a little piece of paradise. Uptown has been growing on me so much and I really feel the huge potential it holds. There are fun thrift shops all around me and beautiful houses with plenty of places for me to run all my errands. Uptown tends to get a bad name sometimes, but I defend it so much. I am happy to call Uptown my home.... and I'm happy to call Chicago my home, too. I feel like I'm going in the right direction in life and it really feels fresh and new and inspiring. Every day I am a different person from the day before. There are good people in my life in Chicago and I couldn't be more grateful. I will post a studio tour this week so you can see more of my apartment. I'm off to bed. XO

Thank you to Nathan Adhikari who is not only the photographer of this series- but also one of my best friends.

A Portrait of Peyton Stewart

Peyton and I have been friends for a few years now- we met through mutual friends in Urbana Champaign, IL. We both live in Chicago now so this was the perfect opportunity for me to finally have her model for me. Aren't her eyes mesmerizing? I haven't even edited them at all and they are so piercing. She is going to art school here in Chicago and she's so fun to hang out with. She even humored me by holding my stolen hydrangeas and eating this beautiful donut courtesy of Glazed and Infused.... let me tell you- the donut was amazing!
love, polly
