Arimoi 's thoughts:

This shoot was really a test to see if I was comfortable taking pictures in front of people. I chose a busy street in the heart of Old Town Alexandria and went in the height of the afternoon with all sorts of people walking by, commenting, and staring at me. It was nerve racking and I almost didn't keep it together but somehow I managed. So happy to get through that!

As for the outfit I got this lovely red-orange shirt at a local thrift store earlier this week and was looking for things to pair it with. It was a dull, overcast day so I wanted something that would brighten it all up. A purple skirt was just the thing. When picking shoes I grabbed these purple pumps and my immediate reaction was "Whoa, too much purple". But then I thought 'wait... you can't have too much purple!' and voila -an outfit was born.

 

PS: I definitely celebrated with a cupcake from the little shop behind me after :)
