Chill Vibes

This shoot was around one of my favorite artsy coffee shops in Richmond, Lamplighter. It’s right at the end of the preppy part of the fan and the beginning of the artsy, VCU type area. I highly recommend checking it out if you’ve never been, it’s chillllllin and the coffee is amazing. Beware though the average customer has a few tattoos and piercings so be prepared to feel like a noob a little bit if you are not the most hipster individual.

In regards to the clothes, how cool does my littlest look in this shoot?? The perfectly wavy hair, a nice mazy skirt and an ear cuff, what more could you want? Also make sure to like Double Take on Facebook! There’s a link on the right side of the page so you can stay updated with posts!

This afternoon I got to take a stroll through Cary Town with the newest addition to my Tri Delta fam, Katie! She’s one of the chillest and most genuine girls to walk this campus so I’m pretty fortunate to have have met her in my last year. We decided to embrace the hipster-vibe of lower Cary Town and pop into a record shop to check out some of the old tunes. Cary Town and Richmond in general is an amazing place because it offers a little something for everyone. There are flowers and French restaurants for the classy, tons of amazing restaurants for the foodies, and record stores like this for the artsy peeps. In my last few weeks of school I’ve tried to keep this in mind and enjoy all that Richmond has to offer with amazing company like
Katie P.

Also make sure to check out LF Stores where the shirt and necklace are from in this shoot! I had never heard of it, but their look-book reminds me of a more specialized Urban.

Sorry for the winter hiatus, but we’re back! Stay turned for more coming soon!

Meet one of my littles in my sorority, Morgan! This shoot was great for many reasons. What I love most about spending time with Morgan is I feel we learn from each other in different ways. Morgan is probably the smartest and most motivated person I know, so getting to goof around with her a bit was a great way to spend my Sunday afternoon. Not only does she keep me on track, but she has introduced me to some new brands today! I linked entire product lines instead of just one article of clothing so that you can discover how awesome they are just as I did.

This shoot in particular was taken literally in the middle of Monument Avenue in Richmond. For those of you who are unfamiliar, Monument Avenue takes you from the suburbs to downtown while lining the street with gorgeous brick homes on one side, and famous monuments on the other. This street also is where the Monument 10k takes place every spring in Richmond. It’s an amazing event and apparently the biggest 10k in the country. Check back soon for some pictures from my trip to New York City!

This past weekend my sorority threw a perfectly fall themed get together called Fall Fest. What more would you want to do on a fall night besides sit on hay bails, bob for apples, roast marshmallows, and chow down with your sisters? This night was such a great event I obviously had to document it and share!

It’s also convient that my sisters come from so many different backgrounds and locations, reflecting their individual style reflected here. Hopefully you enjoy the variety in these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them and sharing the night with my sisters and photoshoot models. Im guessing you recognize some of the faces as seen in Endless Summer and Something Like Olivia. If you haven’t seen them check em out!!

This weekend RVA decided to grace us with a gift of amazing weather. Feeling in the mood for a fun way to spend a fall afternoon, my family, my brother’s adorable girlfriend, Katie, and her dog, Avery took a trip to Maymont Park to throw a football around and take a walk. Although the sun was shining and the temperature was completely comfortable, the wind was on its highest level, coincidentally creating some excellent glamour shots of Avery.

It’s so nice to be around family even if it’s just for one weekend. School is so busy and sometimes you forget the point of being in so many activities, so having your sounding board and people who care about you most come in is truly something special.

This weekend, Olive and I ventured to the Richmond Street Art Festival to take in some of Richmond’s artiser attractions. Of course it ended up raining. But never-the-less we ended up enjoying the experience even more, and in a few photos, got to play with using our umbrella as the rain poured just like the paint on the walls.

I love being able to take a hour or two out of my day to spend with these girls. Olive in particular is one person I could say is 100% confident in her own skin and I admire her immensely for that. Not only is she basically the epitome of “cool, calm, and collected,” she’s also entrepreneurial! What are the odds. She started her own line of fabulous and unique leather accessories called Olive Eli. Coming from Houston, you can’t beat the high quality leather and Mexican influence. So check it out!!

As a side note, unfortunately school is ridiculously busy compared to the summertime for me, but I am trying to get my photos and outfits out as frequent as possible. Please keep following because I will update Double Take as much as possible! xx

This was probably one of the most enjoyable shoots I’ve done so far. Liv and I decided to explore Deep Run Park which is only a 5 minute drive from campus. Upon exiting the car, we quickly realized we were stepping into a sun-seeping tree canopy oasis. It was the exact retreat we needed from our hectic week of classes. I definitely recommend taking a run here or just visiting on a pretty day to enjoy the outdoors a bit. Hope you enjoy the shoot as much as we did!

Meet my adorable Tri Delta family member, Liv! We traveled down to the fan, thinking we would catch the last ends of the sun, but instead ended up counting down the minutes until we got pummeled by a thunderstorm. The blazer for this shoot, provided by my lovely friend Claire, pretty much foreshadows the weather to come by its electric color contrasting, yet soft splashes on the ends.

Another thing to highlight about this shoot is the featured bracelet! It’s by another one of our sorority sisters, Olive! So make sure to check out her line on Etsy, it’s fabulous just like her.

Anatomy of a Toga

At my University we have a Senior Toga Social. All the men and women of the senior class go out and buy their favorite colored fabric and make a toga to spend the night at the Greek Theatre. (How suiting, right?) It was so much fun to try to design different ways of tying the fabric, with twists and turns to make each one unique. I thought I would share these because they are a great idea for a theme party, as well as a fun way to exercise your fashion muscles.
