Breaking the rules

I had the privilege of being photographed by Sofia Touassa, an extremely talented and cheery fashion designer who is the brainchild of the brand FPCO Limited. We met on a sunny afternoon at a local park, and explored a Japanese garden that had a dry waterfall. Despite the signs warning us not to enter, I clambered down the rocks and tried my best not to have a serious accident that would make it to the front page of the Houston Chronicle.

Okay, it really wasn’t that difficult, but Sofia snapped photos as I spun and moved around, her instructions and positioning being very new for me, since I shoot my own photos with a tripod, timer and remote. My routine for taking photos is rather methodical, so I am intrigued by the vision of another photographer.

A warm day, a breezy outfit. I am living in t-shirts and skirts this summer, and appreciate the versatility of this accordion skirt. Anything that can take me from the office to drinks with friends and not make me feel like a literal hot mess is a definite win.

Thank you to Sofia for inviting me out in this Houston heat and making me feel like a totally cool blogger.
