The title of this post first came to my mind because this outfit was inspired by Keira Knightley’s style in the film Begin Again, but it’s fitting in more ways than that. Post-grad life is full of new beginnings and opportunities in ways I never anticipated, and everyday has been an adventure since I left my university. I’m excited to have registered a few piano students for the fall season, and can’t wait to get started teaching and sharing my love of music. I’m also loving having the opportunity to blog so consistently, work on photo shoots, and spend time with the people I’ve missed so much for the past few years. The summer was been so sweet and beautiful, and I’m relishing in this season of life. There are of course doubts and fears as I move forward, but I have confidence in who holds my future.
I mentioned that this outfit was inspired by Begin Again, which is a wonderful movie, especially if you’re a musician! It’s quiet, unique, and quirky, and I really enjoyed it, but I especially loved it for Keira Knightley’s outfits through the whole film. She plays a singer/songwriter, and always wears these great trousers and interesting tops along with the occasional vintage style dress. She also rides a bike throughout the film, so of course I shot these photos on a bike ride! My sister Keeley and I went biking and realized just how out of shape we are. 😉 You may recognize these pieces from my capsule wardrobe video! I love wearing these breezy rayon trousers in the summer heat, and they pair perfectly with this little denim shirt.
