It should be so fitting that I have a bit of a professor vibe in these photos since they were shot at a very particular location on the NYU campus called the Washington Mews. It's a really unique part of the city -- a cobblestone row -- that actually used to be old stables. How cool is that? New York is filled with these types of little secret gems.
Anyway, while I stole my husband's t-shirt (which happens more than I care to admit) and am wearing loose distressed jeans with a schoolboy blazer, it's always a good call to add a pair of heels to the mix so that people don't confuse you with an actual member of the opposite sex, know what I mean?
We're no stranger to nighttime shoots here on FOR. In fact, I quite like them because the flash is a complexion's best friend. And while this look is far from being evening wear, I have a penchant for going a bit against the grain and dressing down when the sun does the same. Nothing screams more effortless than looking like you don't really care, amiright?
