Amara's Notes: I'm always on the go, whether it's going to work or hanging with friends and exploring new parts of the city. Summer is a time of minimal rest, a lot of work and even more play. For a day with friends I always like to be comfortable and still well presented. By now you all know that I love wearing basics with a certain pop piece included in the outfit. Detail for me, is key, since my outfits are generally black and white based. Something as small as the chain in front of my boots and the print on my shorts or even the zips in my bag and hat make all the difference in my outfit. The days are starting to get hotter but i couldn't resist bringing my Steve Madden boots out to play. the cut out on the side of my boot makes it a lot more neutral and doable in the Summer.
I got to visit a few cool locations in D.C this day. every year in D.C it feels like the city is evolving more and more. New buildings and businesses are swarming to D.C as it becomes a more commercial and attractive area. I went to Metro Center where i interned this summer at Sunoco Oil on K St and took some shots at the cool new buildings around the area. The architecture in downtown D.C is very futuristic and modern. it excites me to see the world evolve and see how much life is changing every day. Anyways, I Hope all of you are growing and learning more about yourself each day this summer & don't forget guys, DETAILS MATTER!
Lots of Love,
