A Pop of Red

AstroBandit_JordanRose_RedHeels_PopOfRed_RedAccents_CarrizoPlains_GoJane_ZeroUV_1.jpg

One of my favorite styling tricks is adding a pop of color to an all black, white and grey outfit - and my go-to color is usually ruby red. I just love the flirty vibes red brings to any simple look. Here is a look inspired by this fashion trick, featuring GoJane and ZeroUV. You can find links to everything I am wearing in this shoot at the bottom of the post - enjoy!

Dripping in Gold

1edited.jpg

An outfit for those first days of fall, when the weather isn't quite cold enough for a sweater and summer is still lingering in the air. I brought together pieces from many of my favs to create this look - earrings and a choker by Gorjana, shoes by E8 by Miista, a top by Cotton Candy LA from Blackwater, and pants by Zulu & Zephyr. They paired well with the golden sun as we cruised along our local ridge route!

Hello, everyone~ I am happy to share the second shoot we captured for Madison James. I just love dressing up in their stunning gowns, wandering around and creating with my love! There's something so special about being 'all dressed up with nowhere to go' - the only place we were headed was towards the best light in the Carrizo Plains! I hope you enjoy this shoot featuring a magical gown brought to you by Madison James.

On the Rocks | Joshua Tree

Lena Bernard just released her new collection and I am so in love - her jewelry is a dream, y'all! The craftsmanship in every piece I have been lucky to own by her is just incredible. Each piece is truly a work of art and they add the best vibe to any look. 

I am excited to release this shoot! I have been saving this post until Lena released her new collection. I hope you enjoy the imagery we created in Joshua Tree, while on the rocks, soaking in the best kind of golden light.

We finally did what we absolutely had to do - chase the Death Valley superbloom - and those beautiful, desert wildflowers were exploding with color everywhere I turned! I visited Death Valley during spring of last year and there were tons of flowers, but nothing quite like this. Flowers smothered the surface of the valley and added a whole new essence to the park.

We shot this series of photos when we had first arrived -- when it was raining and the winds were up to 50mph! Oh, and our plan was to camp in our tent -- which ended up being the worst idea (ha!) so we slept in the car! But hey, weather added a sense of mystery to these photos and I love it! Those thick, layered clouds and moody skies created such a nice contrast. Check out what I'm wearing below -- my new favorite outfit for springtime ::)

I couldn't be more excited to start a blog for Astro Bandit so that I can share the stories of my journeys with you all. My first post will be about exploring a secret spot we found off the PCH on our way back to LA from San Francisco just north of Santa Cruz. It is often a place for skateboarders to get into some dirty tricks ~ but this time around the rain got to it first, leaving Darren and I with an optimal spot to shoot some photos. I was pretty stoked about these photos because of how the colorful accents contrast the hazy, grey skies.
