A few weeks ago my team and I ventured to Atlanta hoping to try our hands at something a little edgier than our previous photo shoots. We connected with a gorgeous model, Jordan and stumbled upon a hauntingly beautiful abandoned mansion. The entire house has been bulldozed and all that remains in the space is the face of what was once a stunning home, held up by decaying wooden beams and industrial chain. The shoot that followed really allowed us stretch our creativity and explore the darker side of beauty...
There's something so magical about setting out on random adventures and exploring the world around you...
There's something so magical about setting out on random adventures and exploring the world around you... Nothing makes me feel quite as alive as getting out of the house, abandoning my routine and stepping into the wild unknown with a good friend by my side. I'm so thankful to have a group of willing adventurers in my life! Ginny and I stumbled upon this ghost-town train depot the other day and just had to look around a little while the wind whipped at my favorite new cape from Boohoo.
Sometimes (for me at least) the outfit you're wearing plays a big role in your desire to explore. When clothes are unfussy and beautiful it sets the tone for your interaction with the world. I definitely feel the urge to have an adventure in some boots made for climbing and something cozy. Don't get me wrong, I love a good party dress as much as the next girl (have you seen these yet?!) but sometimes you just need something with a little more soul.
p.s. I was sent these items for review however, all opinions and words are my own. It is my policy to only select goods and companies that I truly believe in and wish to share with you. Thank you for supporting the brands that make Chelsea & The City possible.
Inspired by my sweet friend Natalie's dream home wishlist and my sister's impending move to Alabama (she'll be sharing a space with us until she's ready to set off for culinary school next year), I've decided to share all of the inspiration I've been squirreling away for our new apartment. Although Ainsworth and I kicked around the idea of renting/buying a home, we're continuing our apartment adventure and adding one more room. I'm planning on doing a total refresh and am making sure that everything that comes along with us is beautiful and completely necessary. No clothes that haven't been worn for years or pots and pans that aren't seeing use in these boxes! A neutral color palette (shocked?!) and a little more natural wood is definitely on my mind these days.
