Road Trip with Amy Lynn Photos Pt. 3 Modeling for Hello Holiday

@helloholiday
If you are just joining, I might suggest scrolling down a few blog post updates, or you might not know what the hell is going on.  Oh, and welcome to blog de la Maddi! The amazing photographer/cotton candy head extraordinaire, Amy Lynn and I took a little trip the the East coast.  Our last spotlight stop on the long journey home was Navy Pier.  We stayed with model Jaida Bentley.  She is also a part time snap chat comedian, and pro chef.  You can follow her on Instagram @jaida_bentley.  Jaida guided us around the area of Chicago near her apartment.   Mother nature must have heard we were in town, naturally it poured!  We were soaked head to toe running from block to block during a flood watch. We ate at an heavy metal bar with kick ass burgers, and custom mac & cheese.  What can I say, we love food.  After braving the rain one more time, Amy and Jaida loaded up with vaseline to shot a sweaty apartment editorial shoot.  The next day we headed to Navy Pier to shoot for a cute little store, Hello Holiday.  Shop Here.  Hello Holiday asked me to model for their company, and Amy conveniently had the idea for a road trip themed lookbook.  We killed the shoot, but not without upsetting the man.  The security tried to put their foot down on our level of photography, but brats like us never listen.  You can see the Hello Holiday Summer State of Mind blog post Here or by clicking the link at the bottom of this post.  In a haze, we left the pier fully prepared to not leave the car for another few hours. We hadn't even made it out of the parking lot before our misfortune struck yet again. The lady in front of us stopped, got out of her car, walked over to us, and pulled a pair of shorts that decided to take a joy ride on the roof of our car.  Oops! My packing skills are mediocre at best.  Amy and I may have had our problems, but there was nothing we couldn't handle together.  After over 3000 miles in one week, we were running on empty, but we powered through for the love of bed.  Our own specifically. Even though almost nothing went according to plan, I still treasure my memories with Amy.  I wish her all the luck in the world in Chicago, hopefully we used up all of our bad juju in Chi Town the last time. Love you all, and as always thanks for reading (so patiently!)

xox,
Maddi
