Snow Style

Jan 29, 2016













Dress, Shein, c/o | Parka, old. See below for lots of options :) | Boots, Ugg | Similar Scarf here & love this one | Toboggan, sold out. Similar here

I love pieces that you can wear basically all year, like this dress. I wore it in the fall (no jacket and minus the tights) and plan to wear it in the spring with sandals :)

About this parka...I have had this thing for like 8 years. Not kidding. I got it on mega clearance at Hollister Co back in the day and just kinda hung on to it. I kept it for two reasons: a) its perfect in the snow & b) everything comes back in style. Well, most things. I don't hold on to everything in my closet, but pieces that I know would cost me significantly more to replace get put in the archives.

xoxo & Happy Fridayyyyyy  <3



Frozen Friends {Photography}

Jan 26, 2016











My sister asked me to take a few pictures of her and her friends while we had some snow on the ground and I love how they turned out! The light was absolutely perfect, it reflected off the snow just enough for perfect skin tones. Sunset was around 5:30 and we took these about an hour to an hour and a half before then. When possible take your photos either really really early or later in the day, closer to sunset, to avoid harsh lighting and get the best results. Harsh lighting (like mid day) can really ruin your colors and make your pictures look washed out.

***I shot these with my Canon 5D Mark iii and used a 50mm f/1.8 lens.

Basic

Jan 22, 2016


These are my current favorite pieces that can be reworked and reworn to create so many different looks. I find myself more and more leaning toward plain, simple pieces. This way you can get more looks for your buck. 

NC is ready for the snow/ice... I hope! Most businesses and schools have already closed and we are just waiting on the weather. I am a little excited to be snowed in for a day or two so I can snuggle up by the fire with some hot cocoa. Cliche, lol.

Craving: Boho Vibes & Sunshine

Jan 20, 2016





A few short weeks ago I was in Florida and it was 90. It snowed in NC today :/ I am so ready for spring it's ridonkulous. Can't wait to live in cut-offs and boho vibes!

Stay warm and stay safe! They are calling for a winter storm here in NC so if you are in parts where that will hit, please be careful!

Thanks for stopping by xoxo

Disney Vacation

Jan 1, 2016


My family vacay is coming to an end but I am so thankful for this trip. The last time we went to Disney my brother (not pictured) and I were kids and my sisters were in strollers! 

We went to Magic Kingdom two days this week and we also went to Epcot, which is one of my favorite spots. One of my top highlights this week was eating at the Be Our Guest restaurant at Magic Kingdom. It's made exactly like the grand ball room/dining hall in Beauty and the Beast, which is my favoriteeee Disney movie. I cried when we walked in Haha!

Happy New Year, I hope we all make 2016 our year and that our goals and dreams are all achieved <3
