San Francisco — Part of a full series titled, “Dapper Woman,” styled by Tushiya Hunter, Azikiwe Aboagye and I were commissioned to photograph her lookbook — making sure to capture San Francisco’s city life in every image. Not only was this photo shoot fun, but a rush, as we traveled to various locations in the city until the sun had long set. More to come!
Truth: I’m a sucker for a matching two piece set. Why? Well, not only is dressing such an ensemble easy (It already matches, for goodness sake!), but sets also have a level of sophistication. When you coordinate, you look good!
This varsity sweater two piece dress set from Pixie Market, is sporty and chic. It’s perfect for the office with blue tights and pumps, or brunch with your girls, wearing tennis shoes for comfort. The cropped knit seater and mini skirt can also be paired with other garments, making this coveted set very versatile. And, just in case you are still unsure of this outfit, the skirt has pockets! Yeah, that sold me too…

San Francisco, CA. — It’s the first weekend of the new year, and all I can think about doing this Sunday is lounging around. Things have been hectic, and the many late nights with friends have caught up with me. So instead of bottomless mimosas, I opted for an afternoon stroll around San Francisco’s Little Italy. With no particular destination in mind to photograph this easy Free People dress, we found this yellow garage door. Mellow, yet exciting. This long-sleeve striped dress, which I actually purchased at a thrift store, is a stretchy jersey material that can be worn on the beach and on the street. I layered a mesh collared shirt over to give a little edge to a sporty look. The tennis shoes were an obvious choice to keep the black and white color aesthetic, and they’re just comfortable, which is ideal for city walking. With a new year of experiences to look forward to in 2015, I am hoping things are similar to this look: Mellow, yet exciting.
In addition to sharing more of my closet this year on STYLEpaige, I will continue to showcase more of my personal street photography and styled photo shoots! Happy New Year!
One thing is true for women living in the Bay Area (Oakland, Berkeley, San Francisco): We walk a lot. We walk — or run — to catch our BART trains; we walk to work; or even walk to the grocery store.These New Balance running shoes will not only give your feet pleasant support, but make a fashion statement as well. Shimmery synthetic leather accent the grey shoes, allowing you to dress up this sneaker with a dress or tailored pants. I have worn a similar pair with calf-length athletic socks and a plain cotton dress. Even though you may have that fancy job in the Financial District, you are going to need some comfy shoes. Don’t worry, you can change into your Louboutins at your desk.
