I go to the park with a group every week. This week, I sort of ..sprang a photo shoot on them. By not warning any of them I would be wielding a camera, I caught them wearing what they felt comfortable in. I find that this is how you can predict the upcoming trends. I had my "models" ( Very cooperative friends, I love them :D) pose up on the "castle" (playgrounds) balcony..then I shouted "Look up! Search for the rain fairy!" (It was a cold, wet, rainy day) if you look closely at their faces, you can see which ones "saw the rain fairy"..
So now I am sure you are wondering, "What trend did she discover?" look at the pictures and see if you can figure it out. If not, just scroll to the bottom, where I spill the proverbial beans.
Geez, I look really tall in this pic...I am only 5'6...
And this last photo they asked me to share with you, because, well, they think it shows my "essence"..Load of rubbish, I think they just think it is a funny picture of me....
This is me before our "photo shoot", telling them NOT to take a picture of me....
Anywho, as you can see in the first two photos, the "look" I found was..comfortable. Hoodies, generic t-shirts, skinny jeans and converse. I am wearing an Aeropostale sweater ($9.99 thrift store find, brand new, still had tags), green layer shirt, Old Navy boot cut jeans, and (the ever-present) sparkly converse.
Funnily enough, when I showed up at at the park, all but two of the girls were wearing some version this "look". I was one of them.. :p I am not a fan of skinny jeans, and it was waaaay to cold for me to not show off my new sweater :)
So go to your local park with some friends, pull out your camera and start snapping...you never know what you might find behind the lens :)
