Waking up in the morning, I dress for my moods -- I could be feeling romantic or grungy (usually grungy or romantically grungy) -- but I also approach my closet with the day ahead in mind. While I'll certainly be dressing for what the next twelve hours have in store for me (photo shoots at work where I have to bend and twist and sit on the floor often require loose shorts and sandals and general frumpitude), even on my most casual days I'm also looking to translate what I'm feeling.
Naturally, that desire to express all aspects of my personality translates to more than just the clothes I wear, and as much as I hate to admit it, my phone has become an extension of my self (you too?). From the apps I use (I'm a fan of Runkeeper, Spotify, VSCO, and Afterlight), to storing my photos and videos. So, with our phones (like it or not) practically glued to our hands, it's understandable that we'd look for ways to personalize that aspect of ourselves as well.
Lucky for us Zero Gravity and its ridiculous selection of expressive cases exists. When an old friend who works at the company reached out, I was really excited to collaborate - the company is rad, but more than that I was excited to connect with a friend who's doing cool shit. Indecisive as I am, I picked out a dreamy pastel case and one in more earthy tones, so I can switch 'em out when the mood strikes, which is often. I love changing up my look -- we have to clothe ourselves every day for the rest of our lives, why not make it interesting?
These outfits were worn to work on separate days - I tend to start my week more casual and work up to dressier looks. I found these coveralls on a thrifting trip this past weekend, I've been on the search for a mechanic's jumpsuit for awhile, and finally found it in the "uniforms" section. Always look everywhere when you're thrifting, even in the men's uniforms and children's coats.
