Shooting these photos at Coney Island with Zhi and being at the beach again really helped to relieve some of my homesickness for California. Even though the weather and water temperatures of the beaches here are much different, Coney Island itself actually reminds me a lot of the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. All the bright colors and fun atmosphere of the theme park make it the perfect location to shoot this playful look, while the beach also compliments the aqua tone of this wrap dress from LOVE and my aqua socks from 2020AVE! And having shot these photos a few weeks ago when I had just recently moved to New York, my airplane necklace, also from 2020AVE, was a particularly meaningful accessory to remind me of home.
