Aesthel and I went out on the hottest day of summer to shoot our products we received from her and had a blast. These items were totally up my alley fashion wise, and I already was a fan of her art. 

We wanted a really effortless streetwear/ street fashion vibe for the shoot. I styled her monotone daydreaming shirt in a Large for an oversized T-shirt dress look. The fabric of the shirt is beautiful and soft. I paired the shirt with thigh high boots and a black bomber to keep the attention on the main piece. 

To accent the shirt, I rocked the white stay hydrated cap  with an adorable enamel pin for a bit of flair. The pin was a nappy the banana enamel pin  

Aesthel wore the mint milky cone shirt in a more fitted style with an adorable print. She loved the color and was excited to add the piece to her wardrobe as well! 

Here are some of the images from our editorial featured in the issue this month.
