This weekend, Jason and I were fortunate to have been photographed by one of our friends, Catherine Coons. She has also shot one of my previous shoots with my little sister, which turned out so adorable! She is so incredibly talented, and we had so much fun playing around town with her. I will probably be posting more from this shoot in later posts.
I was super excited because had just purchased the most perfect dress from Anthropologie, and I had the opportunity to wear it! As soon as I had this dress on, I knew it had to be mine. It great too, because it’s a wonderful transitional piece. This time of year is always difficult with fashion. Summer isn’t over, but I don’t necessarily want to spend money on a super summery dress that won’t bring me through fall. This dress by Maeve is great because it could really work during any season.
Another beautiful feature of this dress is the coloring. There are so many beautiful colors that show through the pattern within the dress. I paired it with a pair of neutral colored ballet flats by Kimchi Blue, but it would be wonderful with navy, marroon, rust orange, or any of the colors displayed in the pattern. I am on the hunt for cobalt blue suede flats to pull out that beautiful blue.
To accessorize, I thought that my gold glitzy necklace from Anthropologie would be perfect. It was neutral enough to not distract from the dress, but just enough to perfect the look. I fell in love with this necklace because it resembles quartz crystals. If you know me, you’d know how obsessed I am with crystal healing. My house is filled with different kinds of crystals laying around. So, naturally I fell for this necklace. It goes with a lot of different kinds of outfitting too, which is a bonus. I finished off the outfit with my favorite gold rings, Alex and Ani bracelets, and my go-to Michael Kors watch.
I was so excited that I had an occasion to show off this little beauty (I mean the dress, not Jason). But in all seriousness, I am in love with how the photos turned out, and we had so much fun. I think it really showed a glimpse into Jason and I’s romance. We are stupidly happy with one another, and I think Catherine really captured that. If you haven’t seen her photos, I strongly encourage you to take a peek at her website. ( http://www.catherinecoons.com/ ). More photos from her to come for sure.
Its been a long time since my entire family has been on a vacation together. Its been long overdue, that’s for sure. Last weekend, my mom booked a cabin for the whole gang, in the middle of nowhere. My mom, her boyfriend Charles, my sister Jillian, her best friend Kristen, My dad, Jason, and I. It was so nice to see everyone and actually spend some time together. Usually a visit with my family only lasts a day or so, and I am running around trying to see everyone. It was great to have everyone in one place, and having the opportunity to do some really cool activities. It was truly a really fun experience, and we did things I never really get to do ordinarily. We went to a rodeo, rode horses, hung out with buffalo, drank at the saloon, did archery, went on an air-boat ride, and ate barbecue food every night. It was beautiful. So beautiful that I thought I’d share some of the pictures on here for everyone to see.
It felt so nice to breathe in some fresh air, and get away for a little while. It was a wonderful vacation… But now its back to putting the new place together and working super hard. Back to the grind.
