Today Brenna and I headed to the Hope Artiste’s Village in Pawtucket to model some clothes for a little boutique in downtown Providence called Shoppe Pioneer.  We were pretty nervous for our first ever modeling gig (unless you count the RISD fashion critique?), but today’s photoshoot pleasantly surprised us;  We both left smiling and feeling like we’d conquered a real fear.  Three cheers for moving out of your comfort zone!  Woo!

Soooo, these pictures are just a little sneak peek., but stay tuned for more awkward, hand-on-hip poses.  And try your best not to laugh at me, or we’re not friends anymore!  Just kidding we will always be friends.  But seriously, don’t laugh, kay?!  Happy Sunday, all. x

I hope you are all having a lovely 4th of July weekend…I know I am!  Around here it’s been all beach days, pool dips, raspberry picking, movie-going and attempting to stay cool in this massive heat wave that’s sweating its humidity allllll over New England.

On the 4th, Tegan and I braved the crowds at India Point Park to hear the Rhode Island Philharmonic outdoor concert and see a pretty impressive firework display over the water.  It was my first time attending the annual event, and I loved the experience!  Next year I’m going to bring a bigger blanket, a picnic, and some wine- Parisian style!

Tomorrow a few of the dancers and I are participating in a little photoshoot for a clothing boutique in downtown Providence called Shoppe Pioneer.  All week I’ve been ignoring my strawberry/frozen cool whip cravings (I blame the soaring temps!) and attempting to shed some of those pesky Paris pounds!  I’ve never modeled before, and must admit I’m slightly freaked about posing for the camera without making a goofy face or flashing a cheesy smile…any pointers?!  Wish me bon chance!
