You know the feeling...every school year you promise yourself you won't procrastinate but within a month that pact has become a lost cause. However, who could resist spending a day wandering the University of Michigan Botanical Gardens in 80 degree, sunny weather with a creative, quirky, and outgoing group of students? This in itself is worth putting that essay, studying for an exam, or pulling an all nighter for. But trust us, this day trip was worth it.
One by one, E-Board members began to enter the garden. Hands were holding on to bags filled with bold pieces, an eclectic array of make-up, and accessories - a lot of accessories. We each indivdually spent the first hour prepping our look. You may be thinking, what was their look? Neutrals and skin tones with hints of denim. If you think that sounds dull you might want to look up Kanye West's latest, Season 2 collection for some inspiration. But paired with the class and sass of NOiR we took this theme to another level.
Each board member used this theme as a foundation for their outfit and image. Those who dressed in neutrals chose to be bold in the cooler areas of the garden, such as, the tropical section. However, members that wore a denim ensemble veered towards the warmer side, posing along side cacti, rocks, and dry plant species.
While members were getting their individual pictures taken by the wonderful Dane Hillard, the rest of the E-Board spent their time roaming around the gardens, snapping pictures with James and being recorded by Jay. As a whole, we collectively left the shoot feeling even more excited about this year. Before we sign off, remember to 1. Bookmark our website (maybe set it as your homepage) 2.
