I’m trying to savor the remaining warm-ish weather by throwing on knits over a skirt (with tights if I must) or wearing longer length dresses before I officially have to convert to coats and pants full time. Once winter officially hits my legs likely won’t see the light of day until April or May. (unless I escape to warmer weather.) Tragic but True. And the only saving grace to all of this is at least being able to rock some killer boots throughout the process. Shout out to the stunning blue python boots of my dreams (which appear in my first look) that I just snagged from Free People! I’m in Love.

Shout out #2 goes to this super cute Island wrap midi dress that I picked up from Tobi ! I’ve been looking for a few cut-out pieces to add to my wardrobe since I find that look intriguing but, it can also be a bit too “extra” sometimes. So, I have been very cautious when it comes to selecting those pieces. This dress caught my eye since it seemed subtle yet cool enough for me to effortlessly pull off that style and honestly, I am beyond happy with my decision!

I’ve also been on a bit of a punk kick lately hence, the badass vinyl skirt + Guns N Roses tee outfit as well as the deep red sequin skirt. There’s been a huge surge this fall/winter in super edgy vinyl pieces and all things red. And even I’m surprised . . . but, I am completely obsessed with these looks at the moment. Maybe it’s the change in my hair color (who knows) all that I do know is that, I will fully take advantage of these trends while they last!

If you ever find yourself in Bali’s jungle looking for a quiet place to cool off . . . this may just be the place.

Unfortunately one of the downsides to Bali are it’s crowds. It’s nearly impossible to have a place completely to yourself, even when you wake up at the crack of dawn! So, after spending the morning at another more popular “and very crowded” waterfall, we headed over to this lesser known waterfall only to be greeted with a huge sigh of relief that there were only 2-3 other people there. I really relished my time spent swimming in this little slice of Bali goodness. When it comes to Bali. . .  if you make the effort to seek the road less traveled, you will be rewarded!

There’s something special about Bali’s beaches and their tide pool situations. First off. I have to admit that I am a bit of a tide pool aficionado. And, while we were in Indonesia it sorta felt like Tour de Tide Pool at times, since there were so many, and each one we came across seemed to get dreamier and dreamier.  Suluban Beach was definitely one of the nicest beaches in Bali that we went to. I loved spending a morning here tip toeing amongst all the little rock pools wearing (what has become my favorite bikini) while watching the surfers froth around out there. If you ever find yourself in Bali . . . this experience is something I highly recommend.

I’m excited to share this fun editorial that I shot awhile back with the stunning Lexie Felderman. I got my hands on this super cool lieutenant cap from FallenBROKENstreet and I really wanted a excuse to put star stickers all over Lexie’s face. So, I went with this military ish vibe. . . which sorta went more galactic. I honestly love how it turned out! It’s a bit more themed than my normal work.

The funniest thing about this, is that the green puffy jacket became a part of this shoot because it happened to be super cold when we shot this. I brought it for her to warm up with it in between shots,  but I ended up just taking photos while she had it on since I loved that it matched the hat.

Regardless of all that and the freezing temperatures. . . I think that Lexie completely killed it!!

This happens to be a post that should have been up last summer. . . but it fell victim to my hard drive crashing on me. I felt like it was too foxy to ever go un-posted, and it still fits with the current festival season. So here it is.

Every year Spell & The Gypsy Collective kills it with their festival collection. They just tend to ooze that festival vibe better than anyone. Honestly, I haven’t been to a music festival in a few years . . . but I’m still a sucker for that fun festival style. Heck, It’s been a year and I still adore these pieces so much!

 I feel like that says a lot.

Velvet has been having a “serious moment” since last fall and I couldn’t be more supportive. I love everything from how the light reflects off velvet making you shimmer in the sun . . . to it’s soft fuzzy feel. It manages to balance being cozy + luxurious at the same time.  ( which is a difficult look to achieve )  Basically . . . you can’t blame me for crushing hard on velvet pieces at the moment. And these dreamy items that I picked up will likely make you develop a velvet crush too!

I think it’s time that I finally got around to sharing this lovely editorial that I shot for Sticks and Stones Agency a few months ago.

 Sophia drove all the way down from Wyoming to meet me at this research center in Boulder, Colorado. This was our first shoot together, and just from glancing at this place from the parking lot you would be pretty skeptical about my location choice. So as I “the photographer” was smearing various pink eyeshadows all over her eye lids. . . I just kept telling her to trust me. Once she saw the result of the pink mess I had created in the mirror, she looked me straight in the eye & said. . . I think this is going to be a very fun shoot!

Thats when I knew we were about to create some Magic!
