Summer in NY, yes it can be hot, and many times I would rather be at the shore, but the city can also be a magical place in the summer too. People spilling out of sidewalk cafes, the long days and golden sun sets—plus it tends to be a bit less crowded and the perfect time to shoot. This past weekend I met up with a photographer named Marina who I met through Instagram. I had been following her feed and discovered she lived three towns over from me. How cool is that? Definitely one of the upsides of social media. After following Marina for about a year on Instagram we met last winter during NYFW, we were attending the same show and she recognized me from my feed. But this weekend was the first time we met up to shoot.

We headed to Soho were I got my hair braided at Birch Box by the very talented Karina Sanchez. I love their hair and makeup services — you can get an updo or braids done for only $30, how cool is that! With these super dramatic over-sized ruffles I knew having my hair up was a no brainer. And speaking of the top, this top was gifted to me from Shein and I must say I think I knocked it of the park with my choice of this show stopping stunner. I had numerous people stop me in the street to ask me where I got it.

And with the fashion forward braids, Kardashian worthy top, my fringe heels, and Marina following me about with a telephoto lens I kind of felt like Kim Kardashian

And with the fashion forward braids, Kardashian worthy top, my fringe heels, and Marina following me about with a telephoto lens I kind of felt like Kim Kardashian. I paired this top with these high rise flares from H&M but it would look really good with a skirt too, and I just may do this for fashion week. The bag is from BCBG and the sandals are from Zara which I picked up last summer.  The necklace I picked up at Oh La La a few months ago. Remember the video? This gorgeous top retails for $17.85 if you can believe that. So if you want to stop traffic like I did be sure to head to Shein.com. And tell them Allie sent you!

    Beautiful and chic styling! On the budget! It was fun to work with Ali on this project. Delightful to photograph NYC prime lady with fashionable and creative mind. And SoHo streets made a perfect backdrop for this urban fashionista. My Instagram followers can not get enough of this photoshoot

    Hahaha I can definitely imagine feeling overly luxe in that top and feelings of being “papped” around town. I love the drama of the ruffles. So, so gorgeous.

    Allie, these photos and this look are stunning! Seriously gorgeous shoot, I’m in love!

    Love the quilting on your bag! That is a beautiful statement top too, dressed down perfectly with the jeans, and you’re right the braided hairstyle was awesome with it.

    Really liked these photos – how nice you could meet someone you follow and work together on a set of photos as wonderful as this 🙂

    Hope you are having a lovely weekend 🙂

    Get an updo or braids for only $30 seems really reasonable in NYC and you look absolutely FABULOUS, Allie! Love that top from Shein but the real winner is the photography in this post. It’ so editorial like!
