I love photography and always enjoy going out with a friend to shoot some photos. The other day, I met up with Stephanie to take some pictures around town, and couldn't help but admire her outfit. It was playful and casual, which was perfect for a hangout session.

Elements of Steph's Outfit
I've been wearing contacts daily for about seven years now and absolutely despised the thought of wearing glasses. However, Steph absolutely rocks her chic Warby Parker glasses. In fact, her stylish frames have motivated me to give glasses another chance!
2. Combat Boots & Flannel Shirt
Steph embodies that "soft grunge" vibe with her flannel shirt from Savers and combat boots from Famous Footwear. I love the look of a flannel shirt tied around the waist, and Steph can also wear it like a jacket once the weather starts to get a bit chillier. This makes it a fashionable and practical pick that's ideal for the summer-to fall-transition.
