all the women who independent

so stoked to show you guys this----a little fourth of july pre-party americana action to get you in the spirit for the weekend! the latest planet blue lookbook. this is exactttly what i want to be doing on on the fourth---chillin' in my bathing suit, drinking some budweiser, lighting up some sparklers, soaking up the sun.....all of the above please! this was a rad day. i did have to spend the day making sure kara had the perfect wedgie, anddd i spent 30 minutes taking a pocket off of a t-shirt with a single pin, but it was par for the course and totally worth it. badass model, clothes that i want to be wearing right now, a perfect day in venice, and of course my girl zoey banging out some beautiful images. another day at the office. 
photography: zoey grossman, styling: me myself and i, model: kara searle w/wilhelmina
