Campbells and Campbells (Resolutions)

Jeffrey Campbell spiked litas, Nordstrom thigh highs, Campbells soup shirt, forever 21 skirt and purse, Collection B Jacket

2013 didn't start off in the greatest way for me. 
My New Years Eve was disappointing and I let it get to me. Plans fell through, I got ditched (the second time in a row) by someone who is supposed to be a best friend, and I was just in a crappy mood overall. I sometimes put too much pressure on a special day or event and when things don't exactly work out like I imagined, I get cold and loose all interest. I have two great boys in my life who really helped me pull out of it though. I hope they know how much they mean to me and I see all the effort they put in to try to make me happy. Thanks, guys. <3 p="p">
New years day was better though. I began 2013 by doing two bridal shoots for a makeup artist/hairstylist at Hepkat, a local salon in SLO. I will be posting photos from those sessions this weekend!
Carrying on like I do every year, I decided to post my New Years Resolutions. I'm proud that I always manage to finish most of them 6 months in, but this time I wanted to be really specific to push myself even more. 
So here are my 5 goals-

1. Buy a new Zeiss Lens.
2. Be in at least three magazines this year (topping my two last year)
3. Do a short intern for a fashion/portrait photographer in another city.
4. Contact 10 clothing companies about doing fashion lookbooks for them.
5. Be more open.

The fifth might seem like a cop-out but its something I need to work on and though it may be too general that is just the point.

I'm optimistic about this year, and I'm looking forward to working hard on what I love.


  1. Love this outfit! the colours of shirt, skirt and bag look great together! And I really like the rock chic added with the heels and jacket! Fab look!

  2. The pictures are stunning as always, and the outfit is great. I'm sorry to hear about your New Year's, but I'm glad to know you made it through it and that your new year's day was good. I hope you have a wonderful year and you get to see all your resolutions and goals become a reality. Best wishes.

  3. Hey, a very happy new year! I really love your outfit, especially the shirt and the skirt.
    By the way, you look very much like a dutch actress, named Angela Schijf.

  6. Your pics are amazing, and you are too damn cute! Thanks so much for the sweet comment on my blog, I will definitely post more posts like that. I really love the feedback :)
    I too make "goals" for the year rather than a resolution. Although I'm a total overachiever and set like 20 goals lol! Cheers to both of us accomplishing our goals for 2013.
