Photo Shoot in the Park

My theme for Summer has been trying to find alternatives to denim shorts, but then I found these…

Usually all of the denim cutoffs I try on are too tight around my thighs and fall too low on my waist! These are different.

These Levi’s are loose and comfortable. They scream Summertime! And unlike most pairs of jean shorts, I can dress them up a bit with a nice wedge, patterned shirt, and red lip.

Joel and I had been searching high and low for the best photoshoot location. We had actually given up by the time we pulled into the neighborhood park.

I ended up gravitating towards this green bench. The next thing I knew we were in full on photoshoot mode.

There is something so calm and peaceful about spending an afternoon in the park. The grass is green, the sun sets, and time begins to slow down just for a moment…

Once we got there I had wished we packed a picnic and a couple novels to unwind with.

Instead, we sat in silence on the cool green bench, watching the day turn to night.

It may sound funny, but every time I wear these shorts I will always remember the feeling I had in the park that day.

Summer was eternal that afternoon, and I love those few pieces of clothing that transcend through time the way a memory can.

This patterned shirt could have been worn in the 20s or 60s, it can be dressed up or down, and it breathes with the wind.

Whether it be a pair of Levi’s, irreplaceable shoes, or a timeless blouse, clothing is a connection we have with each other, the past, and the future.
