inspired by: Vanessa Jackman

Hey y'allll. I can't believe that I haven't picked up my camera in an entire week. But alas, my new battery is FINALLY on it's way and set to arrive by Monday. Not that I'm sure I would have time to take pictures since I've managed to bury myself in schoolwork due to my choice of classes...

And the more time I spend indoors attemping studying, the more time I spend endlessly roaming the internet. Shocker.

Besides for contemplating purchasing virtually everything from the Zara sale, (by the way, is it just me or is it particularly affordable this season?) I've also spent a decent chunk of my time on Vanessa Jackman's blog "pinterest-ing" all of the things. The assortment ranges from avant garde, risque, or bold looks that I can't see myself translating in my mere plebeian wardrobe to looks that are more understatedly tasteful or relatable. The collage below tends to skew towards the latter end of that spectrum. Besides for the actual street style stars featured in the photos, I can't help but admire Ms. Jackman's photography. Regardless of the location of her shots, she has a distinct style. I can't help but be envious of her obvious skillz. To be honest, I think after spending so much time on her blog, street style photographer would make the list of dream jobs for an alternate reality. You know, besides the whole social anxiety of interacting with and asking to take pictures of strangers. 

In all seriousness, I really do have to focus on school cause let's just say the ol' GPA can not afford another hit, so I think I'll be posting more of these "inspired by" posts in the upcoming 5 weeks. Hope you don't hate them! Which doesn't really matter cause I don't since collages are fun to make and I'm already spending time looking at said photos and this is my blog and I like run on sentences so suck on that #sorryimnotsorry
