Soooo…I totally captured this look last summer while visiting Jason’s family for the 4th of July! The goal was to get them posted last summer, but as you can see, that clearly did not happen. One of the things that can be both great and bad is the backlog of content created that never makes a debut on the blog.
I’ve been a dress lover since my younger years. My mom use to make me all kinds of dresses during my elementary school days. I specifically remember the sunflower dress she made me, as well as the balloon dress. I should try to find photos of those so I can share them with Y’all…you would get a good laugh for sure.
Ever since my young college days, I’ve always been that girl who wears her ankle boots ALLLLL YEAR LONG. There’s one outfit I remember specifically…a tan printed Old Navy dress with tan cowboy ankle boots, also from Old Navy. I thought I was super cool! In fact, a photo of that exact look just popped in my timeline a few weeks ago…maybe I should share it. haha.
It’s no surprise at all, but I LIVE for the bright, citrus-like colors. There’s just something about orange and yellow (especially yellow) that makes me super happy. Insert happy sigh! Back in February, I shot this fun look down in NOLA (on a rather balmy Saturday). We were scooting along and happened upon this burnt orange wall, which made for the perfect backdrop for this bright spring-like look!
Every now and again, I get fixated on a trend…one of those being the slip dress movement. It’s completely feminine, luxe and sexy in my opinion! With all of these adjectives in mind, I do think it can be a little daunting to style the slip dress tho…just in case you haven’t noticed, I’m a pretty conservative gal.
On a random day in May, I got a phone call from Caroline, a dear friend and amazing florist, who asked if Jason and I would be willing to model for a styled wedding shoot in July! Of course, I was in at the utterance of “styled shoot”. However, when she explained the entire vision of the safari themed elopement, I was MOST DEFINITELY IN.
