Too Bad Your Chances are Slim

I think I've officially mastered the art of taking outfit photos in extremely crowded locations. Living in New York City, it's pretty difficult to find an area completely void of humankind, so I've adjusted to the strange looks from people passing by. My advice for overcoming public locations? Don't give a shit. There's no shame in your game and you'll probably never see the majority of those people again. Strut your stuff and do your thing. Spin in a circle, laugh hysterically about nothing, and look absolutely insane because you have nothing to be embarrassed about. You are awesome.

It also helps to have amazing friends that make you laugh while taking your pictures (Thanks, Haley)!


This past weekend was the DayLife festival in the Lower East Side and I met up with a few co-workers to gorge in all the deliciousness. I couldn't resist trying out some shrimp teriyaki balls which might have been some of the most amazing food I've ever tasted. They're made by Mimi and Coco, a Japanese street cart that is finally opening up their first restaurant in a few weeks - so pumped to visit it once it opens up! And to beat the unbearable heat (seriously, the roads were melting), I treated myself to a Pink Lime popsicle from La Newyorkina. You can never go wrong with their popsicles, especially since they always have the best flavors (i.e. Avacado, Hibiscus).

There were so many other vendors that had my stomach grumbling but I had head back uptown to meet up with an old friend. Some days I just want to sit around for hours and eat. Everything. Who's with me?

  4. Having someone taking your pictures in a crowded locale is so much better than doing it yourself haha. I love this look, so cute and simple. That tee is really wonderful and so are your sandals :)

  7. "don't give a shit" is really good advice, actually. Or "pretend you're a fancy model and that everyone else is a peasant"--that is what I like to do, though I seldom take pictures in crowded places. Maybe a few drive-bys or pedestrians strolling by, but never a bustling city!!

    You're so cute in glasses, you know that? You make such a cute little nerd, Jen. :D

  8. mmm shrimp terriaki balls, that sounds so delish. i can't wait to discover seattle's street fairs, i need to get my summer on! and i love your paragraph about not caring when taking pictures. i think it's actually a lot easier to take them in big cities because everyone just assumes you're a tourist. you should see the incredulous side glances you get in the burbs...haha

    Btw, I'm sorry I've been so MIA in comments lately- I haven't been able to post any comments from my phone on blogs with the drop-down account menu :(

    Big hugs!
