Playing In the Sun

The other day, my oldest friend from high school and I decided to get together to have a cute little photoshoot. We love photography and I wanted to test my new camera that I got over a year ago and haven’t really used it. So we decided to go to a local park that had a farm and a few cute animals and decided to take rustic pictures.

I suggest if you are trying to catch up with old high school friends, try something that you both enjoy and make a day out of it. No matter how hot it may be outside, you can always end up grabbing some ice cream later to cool down.

Having been home for about 2 months now from South Carolina, I have become a little southern girl with my cowboy boots. I was not expecting to come home with a love for preppy clothes, cowboy boots, and southern hospitality but, apparently, I do. Still not a big fan of Lilly Pulitzer, oops!

Happy Fourth Of July! Stay safe, and enjoy yourself and I will see y’all soon!

Dress: Hollister
Boots: A gift from my roommate

Set the Scene | Loverly*

I remember in computer class one day, my best friend told me about this app, Loverly, all about weddings. It was a few months ago and we were currently girls in 10th grade, so we were far off from planning our actual wedding. But that didn’t stop us. So it comes to a recently when I was emailed by someone who works at the Loverly asking if I can put together a style board based on three different locations and of course I said yes! I was given three locations to choose from: a private beach, upscale city rooftop or a rustic outdoorsy wedding. I did a little digging on each location, as much I would love to swim in my wedding dress or dance underneath the lights of New York City, I went for the rustic scenery. I for one am not an outdoors kind of girl but the rustic weddings literally scream my name and I just fell in love.

Every girl dreams of the perfect wedding dress, a long gown that has a long train that it stretches down the aisle. I would like to be that girl but I am not someone who wants to be tripping to meet the love of her life at the front of the church. I wanted my dress to be different from most so I opted for a shorter one. I do think white plain gowns are beautiful but I don’t want something too boring. I love how it has a simple pattern and the small details matter so much on a dress. The ribbon pulls in at the waist to show off the curves and the V-neck makes the outfit a little sexy but no too much as white represents “innocence” (from what I learned from Sex and the City).
I chose simple white heels to make the illusion that my legs are long. I am not someone to wear flats anywhere (I would like to buy some at least) and I feel like heels make the gown even more beautiful. The heels are not too big that is hard to walk in and not hurt my feet.
I am the hopeless romantic type who loves the whole veil idea but not for my rustic wedding. Having it in the outdoors call for something more fun than traditional. I traded the veil for a hairpiece with floral detailing to give it a more fun look.
I decided to add simple white pearl earrings with a gold lining. Bracelets are too much and no rings because the most important ring will be placed on during the ceremony. I felt like the outfit was not complete until there was a simple piece of jewelry.
