Let's Get Lost

 Happy Friday everyone! 
Lately, I have been feeling a little uninspired. I think it's common. The way writers can sometimes get writers block, I think that fashion bloggers can get inspiration block. As much as I love blogging and I'm so lucky to be able to have made a career out of it,  there is definitely a shift that happens once it becomes your full-time job. Sometimes, I feel so overwhelmed by deadlines and stressed about clothes piling up that I don't really take as much time as I would like to do things, shoots, that make me happy. This shoot is one where I did just that. Jonny and I wandered off into a magical field of flowers with nothing but a camera and a vision and afterwards we were so happy with the results. I shot these images just because I wanted to. Because they made me smile. I hope you like them too. 

Do you ever get inspiration block? I'd love to hear some of your tips for managing it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It's Tuesday and I'm still kind of recovering from this past weekends Coachella festivities. Fun was had by all as we set off early Friday morning en route to Palm Springs. We checked in to our hotel and then promptly set out to look for a cool spot to shoot. Palm Springs has no shortage of visually interesting locations. We decided to go for a traditional desert vibe complete with mountains and rocky terrain. I let my floral maxi be the star of the show pairing it with a floppy hat, to keep the sun out of my eyes and structured black accessories. My chunky black sandals were perfect for the weekend, believe it or not, and they proved to be as comfy as they are cute. Of course, no trip to the desert would be complete without a little pool time, so I paired my high-waisted denim cut-off shorts with a coral plunging one piece (totally out of my comfort zone but, I kind of loved it!). For day two of fun in the sun, I styled a playful romper with sky high wedges and a pretty pink crossbody. This look was perfect for shooting at the colorful Saguaro Hotel, I just have to go back here one day as a hotel guest, this place made me feel so happy and cheerful. Lastly for a night out, I paired this chic and sexy off-the-shouler lace top with wide leg denim and a tailored black hat. Coachella was too much fun, I'm already planning my attack for next year. A big thank you to Lulu's for sending me on this fun-filled weekend getaway! 

And thank you all so much for reading!

 No matter how many detours I take, full skirts will always be my signature style. I can't even begin to tell you how feminine and put-together they make me feel. When I slip on a full skirt I feel like the woman that I want to be. With that being said, I'm fully aware of the fact that  I can't wear them everyday because, well, that would be boring, but every once in a while I pull out one of these beauties and I twirl the day away. It's a good feeling.

I hope that you are having a great week. Thanks so much for visiting me!

Monochrome Moment

Sometimes when I don't know what to reach for, a monochromatic look is the perfect solution. Today, I paired this grey crop top and matching skirt with a cozy wool coat, studded pumps and a neutral colored bag. What do you reach for when you're stuck in a rut? 

I hope you are having a great week so far!

Happy Easter everyone!
I'm so excited to share this collaboration that I recently did with Lulu's and two of my blogger friends, Stephanie of "Honey & Silk" & Enocha of "Locks & Trinkets". We set out on a mini road trip to find the perfect backdrop for our Coachella Lookbook video. We ended up at Vasquez Rock, a place that seems to only exist in movies. When we got there, we were in awe of the beautiful chiseled rocks and the calming desert lanscape. It was the perfcet place to shoot our festival fashion.

Also, we're heading to Palm Springs with Lulu's this coming weekend and we can't wait to share some fun moments from our trip with you! Be sure to follow along on Twitter & Instagram. I really hope you all enjoy this video! It it one of my absolute favorites! 

Have a lovely Sunday!
