J and I don’t have many days off together. Maybe 10 at most for the year? We wake up in the morning and get this weird sense of anxiety because were so excited to hang out and want to do fun activities together but usually get sucked into house hold activities. On Saturday, we were put a line in the sand and decided to get out our bikes and ride around the city shooting photos and video. We stopped by the state capital and the tower bridge.
I love the small details of the homes in my neighborhood. I made J stop 30 seconds into our ride so I could snap this shot haha.
It was pretty chilly I threw on my favorite army green bomber, layered over a v-neck sweater and striped turtleneck.
I’ve been debating what to wear with this deep V neck sweater. Finally this turtle neck dawned on me. For a more fem look, try a lace bralette or camisole.
He loves these shoes from H&M, even got a light blue pair for Christmas.
I’ve been curious about male fashion lately. Been keeping a closer eye on how J styles things. Layering isn’t just for females. I like how he paired two dark tones with a light colored button up in between.
I shot all these photos with a 50mm, I’ve had this lens for a while it’s pretty trust worthy. I’m thinking of getting the 35mm or 24-105mm next. I want something a big more less close up. Do you guys have any suggestions?
I asked him about what inspired him to start this local brand. Here’s what he said:
If you head to one of the malls in town, nearly everything they sell markets other cities: New York, Los Angeles, etc. I love the spirit of the makers movement, keeping things local and being able to identify with the culture of where you live, and I’m also a bit of a history nerd at heart. I wanted to be able to wear a tee that had some kind of tie to Sacramento instead of Brooklyn or something. After working to help launch and build the brand of the Sacramento Republic FC, I could see a lot of other people in the city were feeling the same way. That success got me thinking about other ways to help add to this Sacramento renaissance.
The goal is not to create a brand for brand’s sake. Nor is it about fetishizing good design, American manufacturing or style, although we like all those things.
Instead, we are building Sutter Supply to illuminate the stories of Sacramento’s past, believing our golden history can tell us something about who we are and where we are going. Instagram: @suttersupply
You might wonder why J is burning a card here. I haven’t mentioned before but J does slight of hand, a few magic tricks include flash paper burns. It’s fun to watch him refine his craft, I would never have the patience for this.
Thanks for checking out our adventure. Hopefully you’ll see J on the blog more often.
