Part of my favorite things about this little blog is styling photos when it comes to shooting new content. I also take a lot of time to source pretty styling props, because let’s be honest, they make the photos! Remember when I shared my most used props in my styling closet? A TON of these are still in my back pocket most days. Along the same line, today I thought I’d share my favorite shops to look for styling props for photographers and bloggers alike.
Has anyone else’s Facebook newsfeed turned into just all memes? Most of the time I’ll just scroll past them all, but the other day I stumbled across one that really got me. It stated:
It’s okay guac, I’m extra too.
And I am! This outfit could have simply just been black top, plain black jeans, and this amazing Moon River duster sweater… But nope! I had to go and put on a floppy hat, ripped denim, oh and let’s not forget the fringe booties. What can I say? I like to be a little extra.
After Harrison and my photographer Kelsey got all the laughs out about this outfit, I realized it’s okay to be a little extra. As long as you’re confident and you’re doin’ you, it’s all okay! Confidence is key. Putting all of these pieces together into this look really made me happy, and when I’m happy in an outfit then I’m going to exude that confidence that I’m talking about.
This Moon River duster sweater was a Christmas present that I can’t get enough of. I used to always think that dusters only worked on the tall population, but I’m 5′ 2″ and it actually makes me look a little taller! (I’m wearing a size L. I comfortably wear it open, but it does additionally come with a tie around the waist. I pulled the tie out.)
Who’s ready for another edition of our Beauty Encounters?! I’ve really come to love these posts. Beauty Encounters is where I share with you all the latest and greatest products I’ve recently tried.
Just like every other girl on the planet, I can’t go buy Christmas presents for other people and not treat myself to a little somthin’ somthin’ 😉 I picked up this NARS Orgasm Blush, Daisy Eau So Fresh Perfume, and Anastasia Sun Dipped Glow Kit while shopping for my mom. It was a bit of a splurge for me to just go out and buy three new products that I’ve never tried before, but I was feeling adventurous I guess.
I’m not even going to try to hide the fact that these photos were shot back in November for a special Thanksgiving post. Welp, fast forward to January and these photos just re-appeared in my life. It’s a real problem y’all, photos disappear! I decided to go ahead and share them with you because, let’s be honest, there’s never a bad time for some apple pie… especially when it’s the best damn apple pie you will ever have. 😉
