Gold + Grey

Up at the crack of dawn for a photo shoot on the west side highway…

T Shirt: StyleMint. Faux leather jeans: H&M (found a good 2nd option). Boots: Vintage mens DIY cut/metal tips added. Hat: ASOS (Similars in jewel colours here, here or here). Mens watch: Seiko (love this one too). Necklace: Jennifer Zeuner. Black blazer: (unseen). 
Just over a week ago I did a shoot for Essence magazine and CoverGirl!  I have come to terms now with picking my jaw off the floor after I got the email about the fantastic opportunity.
Michael and me were at the studio loft space before anyone else arrived and took these pics just before the crew arrived.
I wore a blazer, faux leather jeans, cut off boots and a soft T Shirt from StyleMint – a new site featuring T Shirts designed by Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen. The fact that the T Shirt is grey and drapey made it feel lived in.  Code if you fancy trying one (or any of them):  WHERE15 for 15% off first order till December 31 for new members.

I’ll post a few behind the scene pics later this week!

    This outfit is brilliant and those faux leather skinnies are amazing. I have been wanting to buy a t from Stylemint yet every t I want they are sold out in my size. This one didn’t catch my eye on the website but it looks good on you.
    Hope you had a great time at the shoot.
