City Meets Country

Southern bell from college, city girl at heart, it's always fun to mix it all up. This tweed blazer and cowboy ankle booties go hand in hand for a sophisticated, yet playful look.

The Wedding Way

June 24, 2013

What time of year do you like better, Christmas or Wedding Season? Um, Wedding season. Get ready brides and guests, it's time to get geared up. I've spent the last 3 years photographing some of the most amazing weddings on the east coast. Yes, I may be reminiscing about what my wedding may be like one day, but I've also learned a thing or two about how to dress for them, as well as how to prep for them. I was currently approached by a bride to be. She was in need of some help for the perfect bridesmaid gift with a budget of $100-150. Here's what I came up with.
These options make every gift unique to each individual bridesmaid. They are perfect for wedding day usage, as well as every other day after!
1. Tory Burch make up bag (on sale here) fill it with some of these favorites: Estee Lauder Nail Polish, Bobbi Brown Shadow, Bite Lipstick, and Nars Orgasm Blush
2. Kiel James Patrick Cape Codder bag. More options also available.
3. Gigi New York More options also available.
4. Floral Robe. Similar here.

Choosing the perfect dress to attend a wedding can be hard. Below are some of my summertime favorites so far. Light, breezy, and perfectly appropriate.

70's and Sunny

June 13, 2013

Happy Thursday everyone! (So much for 70's and Sunny, we're about to get hit by a serious monsoon.) Anyway, this week has been a busy one but I'm excited to be leaving for Vail tomorrow for a well-deserved vacation. Hopefully I'll have some great photos to show you all when I get back! Anyway, this dress is one of my favorites. I bought it at this boutique called Finch in Charlottesville VA. My bf was in grad school at UVA at the time, so I got to go visit and re-live my college years, spending lots of time enjoying the area. Here are a few styles below that are similar to this one. Make sure to get your too.

Egyptian Gold

June 5, 2013

The glitz and the glam don't need to be contained to winter time around New Years Eve, but shared in the glow of the summertime sun. When I paired these gold accessories with a sheer white dress, it gave off some kind of mythological, egyptian feel. Bag: Jacono, Necklace: Stella & Dot, Dress: Urban Outfitters
