Slow it Down & Then We Go Wild

I'm wearing:

1. Cardigan, from H&M.
2. Striped t-shirt, from H&M.
3. Studded super skinny beige jeans, also from H&M.
4. American flag sneakers, from Urban Outfitters.
5. Aztec necklace, from Asos.
6. Anchor rings, from Asos.
Once upon a time, way before I started this blog and when I was on Lookbook full time, jumping was my favourite thing to do on photos. Guess I fell in love with those Lacoste ads where several models jump and look amazing and stuff. So, homaging my old ways, I tried to shoot jumping outfit photos for this one. Going wild here.

Truth be told, I was a bit rusty and forgot how hard it is too look nice while being in mid-air. You need to control the muscles on your face, especially your eyes and mouth, the position of your head, think about what you're doing with arms and legs. Oh boy, it's complex. Word of advice? Watch out for necklaces bouncing, I always hurt myself, haha. 

Most of my outfit comes from H&M. If I haven't said that before, H&M is such a great fast fashion brand. I always, ALWAYS, find something I like on the store and, usually, it's fairly priced. I was craving beige skinny jeans for ages and this ones with the studs look pretty cool. Also, it has been a long time since the last time I wore a cardigan and I personally think that cardigans are really great. They're light and nice and warm. 

// Hubo un tiempo, mucho antes de que iniciara este blog y cuando estaba en Lookbook tiempo completo, donde brincar era mi cosa favorita para las fotos. Supongo que me enamoré de esa publicidad de Lacoste donde muchos modelos brincan y se ven increíbles y así. Homenajeando mis antiguos hábitos, traté de hacer fotos brincando con este atuendo. Fui un loco, un salvaje.

Siendo honestos, estaba un poquito oxidado y olvidé lo difícil que es verse bien cuando estás suspendido en el aire. Necesitas controlar los músculos en tu cara, especialmente ojos y boca, la posición de tu cabeza, pensar en lo que harás con piernas y brazos. Oh sí, es complejo. ¿Un tip? Cuidado con los collares que rebotan, yo siempre me lastimo, jaja.

Casi todo mi atuendo es de H&M. Si no lo he dicho antes, H&M es una gran marca de moda rápida (fast-fashion). Siempre, SIEMPRE, encuentro algo que me gusta y, generalmente, el precio es razonable. Deseaba jeans entubados en beige desde hace mucho y estos, con las tachuelas, se ven bien padres. Además, hacía mucho que no usaba un sweater de abuelito/cardigan y, personalmente, creo que ese tipo de sweater es bastante buena onda. Son ligeros, bonitos y abrigadores. 
Love always,
Hen.
