Keep Lookbook by a Nephew & Auntie

I am sooooo excited to kick off the week with some photos for a Lookbook (it was really just a photo shoot but I’ve always wanted to use this word, haha, and no, we weren’t paid/hired for this) that my sister-in-law photographed of me and my nephew in our new Keep shoes.  I had never heard of Keep shoes before my last trip to Los Angeles, but found out about it through a friend who works at the company (a friend that I happened to meet about 7 years ago at an Asian American conference, hi Jon)!  So on one Friday afternoon, my sister-in-law and I ventured down to the Hollywood area store location and spent an hour or so looking through all the shoes.  The style is very urban, hipster and trendy.  Cool thing is, all the shoes are unisex too!  So you and your man can have matching shoes!  πŸ˜‰  We left the stores with a pair of shoes for my sister-in-law and me to share, a pair for Marvin and two little pairs for my nephew.  A few days later we headed to the middle of nowhere in Corona and had a little fun!

Here’s Evan’s first pair of shoes, the Guerra.  They were a size too big for him but we made it work.

Look at his little smile, makes my heart melt! <3

He’s quite the curious little boy, taking me in and under random structures!

And here are my shoes, The Benten, the style and colors match with Evan’s! πŸ™‚

How perfect we found a random elephant on the ground, if you didn’t  know, Evan’s first birthday party was elephant (and other safari animals) themed!

My Outfit – Cardigan: Target, Tunic: Boutique in LA, Scarf: Burberry, Jeans: Express, Shoes: Keep

Loving the perspective of this shot!!

I just love the time we spend together bonding, nephew and auntie style.

Another sweet shot by my sis-in-law, you should follow her blog foreals, she always posts cute pictures of Evan!

Evan was really drawn to the elephant and we had fun jumping around!!

And here’s kid shoe #2, Benten style.  And if you didn’t notice, we had an outfit change. πŸ™‚ I just swapped the Target cardigan for a Target button down, if you can’t tell, I love Target.

And my fur-niece, Bella, decided to make an appearance too, *woof*

And quite possibly my FAVORITE PICTURE EVER… that’s my brother (sporting the Solis), Evan (with his belly showing and adorable smile) and me!

Thanks for being our awesome photographer, sis!  Thanks for introducing us to these awesome shoes, Jon!  And I’m so excited because I’m going to see my little Evan Bear next week again!! πŸ™‚  Now everyone, go get yourself a pair of Keep shoes!
