I met Ryan Chua last weekend and he is crazy cool! We had so much fun during our shoot, and stopped for different kinds of snacks in between. It was a great day and I love the outcome of the photos. He is definitely a photographer with an incredible amount of talent, the rave is real. I actually pulled “Show and Tell” from his Instagram caption of a post of this outfit …so the clever title credit goes to him in accordance to pic creds! He is so much fun to talk to, so fast and great at taking photos, and really follows his own passions. I am definitely visiting Ryan’s store, Betabrand, the next time I’m at Mission Street in San Francisco What a guy!

For example, in this outfit, I paired a simple white long sleeve shirt with a black pencil skirt. To spice things up, I threw on a deep red longline cardigan, adorable tights, and some jewelry with different tones and amounts of delicacy. This gave a simple outfit a more “put-together” look; I was ready to hit the stores at Santana Row wearing this.

On a side note, I am trying to expand my blog by adding more beauty and lifestyle posts. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or post requests! Let’s begin
