It's always nice taking time out of the day to shoot some photos in the city. After much time at the beach and on the coast it was a nice change or scenery. I met up with a friend and drove around finding places to shoot, I had no idea that I would end up being photographed, so now you have an idea of how I dress on my casual days.

The temperature outside was 85 degrees with clear skies and the sun scorching-- your typical late summer day. I threw on my favorite shorts I made myself, seriously one of the easiest art project. I've had this vegan leather top for awhile, probably not the best style choice for the weather, but I went with it anyways. I know I've blogged about this cape sweater before, and it's arguably my favorite item in my closet right now, can't get enough of it. I love how these boots are so functional for the summer with the cutouts, they're like wearing a more closed off sandal, comletely functional for walking all around the city.-
