Fresh Flowers & Fallen Leaves

I've been trying to save these photos until it's closer to Christmas, since even though they're very Fall-looking, we took them for our Christmas cards. I'm not sharing the actual photos with my cute Hubby quite yet, but I couldn't wait any longer to share what I wore! Let's face it, Lori Romney is incredible. Like, if I could have her take my photos every day, I definitely would. I've been meaning to shoot with her for forever, but girl is busy!! I'm giddy-happy with how our photos came out and I can't wait to share! Also, the girls at Sheer Rose were amazingly generous and made me a fresh floral crown just for this shoot! It was seriously gorgeous! I wanted to wear it all day. There's nothing like wearing fresh flowers in your hair to make you feel pretty and romantic ;)

Dress - Topshop (almost exact & on sale!!)
Boots - H&M (old, similar)

The Walls Have Eyes

So.. the other day I spotted this amazing wall art and thought what I always think.. "this would be an awesome spot for blog pictures!" So yesterday I grabbed the camera and my Hubby on my lunch break and made it happen! Sometimes I wish I lived in the city so I could find more cool spots like this. Oh, and this outfit is kind of the perfect mix of comfy/casual with a fun heel to make it look like I put in some effort ;) I've probably worn this look at least 3 times now... Shhh! I'm definitely feeling a beanie phase coming on with this freezing weather we've been having lately! You guys, I don't know if I can do another Utah winter... Two more weeks and I get a break from it! We're visiting my parents in Alabama for Thanksgiving and making the trip from there to Florida to sit on the beach! Crossing my fingers the weather is good but if it's not I'll still be on that beach in my bikini, dang it! I don't get to be near the ocean near enough. Anyone else have fun Thanksgiving plans? It'll be here before we know it!

You guys!! Over the weekend I got the BEST opportunity EVER. I got to model for my favorite jewelry company, Fifth & Mae with two of my favorite girls!! My bestie Jody and our beautiful, talented friend Stevi! We had WAY too much fun and I'm amazed Roxana got so many good shots between our craziness and laughter! (The last shot shows a tiny glimpse of that). I just love these girls!! My amazing sister also drove to Salt Lake to style my hair for me and even let me borrow her hat for a few shots! Gotta love having a stylish hairstylist for a little sis :) Afterwards we all went to breakfast and laughed some more.. best ever way to start my Saturday! Make sure to check out Fifth & Mae for the lookbook and tons of amazing jewels! Happy Wednesday!!

Berry lips + Braids


Hello, weekend!! Those words can never disappoint. Any fun Friday night plans?? I'm just looking forward to spending some time with my cute Hubby. He's seriously the best. (and he bought me a much-needed new car this week!!) I'm feeling super lazy lately, I think it's this cold! I'm not ready for another Winter. Seriously, I don't think I can do it. I don't care if I'm a wimp. Jeans and a tee has kind of been my (literally) effortless go-to lately. It helps that this is a super pretty tee, and a good berry lip never hurt either! And, yup, I'm not taking these boots off. Ever. Also, I made my first attempt at fishtail braids. You guys, I LOVE braids but I'm hopelessly bad at doing them. Help! If you know of any super easy to follow tutorial(s) I'd love to hear!
Well, have a good weekend! I have a couple fun shoots I'm looking forward too and the rest of my time just might be spent bundled up inside with hot coffee, a certain someone and Netflix. Or maybe we'll break this laziness and do something fun! We'll see.

Boyfriend Jeans - Converse via eBay (similar)

Rocker Chic

Photography: Emmy Lowe Photo
MUA: Hailee Day
Models: Myself & Jess of Golden Swank
Clothing/Shoes/Jewelry: H&M 

So a little while back I got to play dress up with my gorgeous blogger friend Jess in this Edgy editorial shoot. Emma came up with the concept and gathered together an amazing group of people to make it happen! I'm a little obsessed with the braided mohawks she gave us. I felt pretty badass, not gonna lie! Haha. Totally opposite my usual style but I love doing new and different things! And the makeup, I would totally rock in real life. Hailee is magic. We managed to find every piece of clothing we needed at H&M and I ended up keeping about half of it.. oops! I did need a new leather jacket! Oh and besides being an incredible photographer, Emmy is one of the funniest people I've ever met. Definitely a fun day, and I love the images we ended up with! Inspires me to let my edgy side out a little more often ;)

Day of the Dead

 
 
Hello, Monday! Here's our Halloween costumes as promised! :) We didn't go all out like we have in the last few years but we had fun! We ended up going to a pretty awesome party in Salt Lake at The Photo Collective! The building they're in now used to be a bar/hotel/brothel back in the day so they kind of used that as the theme, with a haunted twist of course. The d├ęcor was pretty awesome. They had a whole wall mural made of dead flowers, I wish I had taken a pic! I decided to stick with my sugar skull look I wore to a friend's party the week before except I had a lot more time to perfect it this time! I thought it would be fun to do half & half and I got tons of compliments on it! Ethan wasn't feeling up for having his face painted again so he opted for the "lumberjack" look. Really he just got out of dressing up at all since most of what he wore wasn't out of the norm for him ;)
Hope you all had a fun Halloween!! I can't believe it's November already!
