This summer, Hoot is highlighting a week in outfits as told by stylish CU students at their various jobs and internships. This week, we’re featuring Paloma Raines, Barnard Class of 2020. Follow her on Instagram @palomaraines.
Hello from Hoot’s PR Director, Paloma. I’ve been traveling through Bolivia for the past few weeks, visiting family and touring the cities of Santa Cruz, La Paz, and Uyuni. This summer I’ve visited Mexico and worked as an intern in Levi’s Photo Studio. I am currently undeclared, but exploring different social sciences. I plan on continuing my work at Hoot and Meet Me at the Museum when I return to campus.
Monday: Touring the salt flats of Uyuni today called for a thick Tommy Hilfiger sweater and Levi’s jeans layered over Uniqlo and Lululemon thermals. I’m also wearing a pair of Ray Ban aviators, a red leather crossbody, and a brown suede jacket I borrowed from my grandfather.
Tuesday: To visit altiplano lakes at an altitude of 14,000 ft, I paired an Anthropologie top with Levi’s jeans, and the same brown suede jacket.
Wednesday: We returned to Santa Cruz today, and I decided on a vintage cutoff black denim skirt and white BCBG turtleneck with a pair of silver hoops for a family dinner.
Thursday: For lunch on an especially humid day, I let my hair stay curly and wore a vintage pink blouse with distressed light-wash Levi’s jeans. I also wore a pair of vintage Carrera sunglasses and platform brown leather sandals.
Friday: Today I stopped by one of Santa Cruz’s open air markets to pick up a few gifts and souvenirs. I’m wearing a shirt from Plastered, a Chinese shirt shop, Nike Air Force 1s, and carrying a Brujas sweatshirt. I also brought a tote bag from the Opening Ceremony x Esprit collaboration to hold everything I found.
Saturday: For dinner on a warm night, I decided to wear a AG jeans dress with layered beaded necklaces – some from Bolivian artisanal markets and others that were gifted to me. I left my curls combed out into waves.
Sunday: To visit the Guembe Bioparque Resort I wore a summery blue and white striped dress, platform sandals and carried an African woven bag.
