Hi From Florida & Spring Staples

April 11, 2018

Hi!   We kicked off our wedding season last weekend at Palmetto Bluff (three days) with Easton Events.  It was spectacular, such a beautiful day and beautiful family, all around uplifting and life-affirming.   We brought our little baby, really for the fist time and he was so good — slept through the night even with all of us piled in the same room.    I loved every moment of it and was reminded of how emotionally all-encompassing weddings are when you are photographing and so took Monday off and yesterday (Tuesday) we flew to Pensacola Florida for our first assignment with Garden & Gun.  Here we are in this sweet little inn in a charming town, can’t wait to reveal more in the coming months but here is a quick snippet from our sunset on the white sand, turquoise water beach.

I picked up these white linen pants this week and have been wearing them so much that I actually ordered another pair (in a size down, because they stretch).  It’s like wearing pajamas — really elegant, pulled together, fit-in-anywhere, iconic pajamas.  I know that they will be one of my go-to favorite purchases for this season and I really, whole-heartedly recommend a pair!  I have so many ways to wear them in mind, from over a white bathing suit for lunch, to with an off the shoulder cropped top, to a great button down, to this striped sweater…they are very versatile!   (Here is an on sale very similar red sweater).  I have also taken to being so lazy about make up so do forgive!!! Eye-liner be gone! 🙂

Some other summer essentials, a great hat, pair of neutral wedges and this bag

In the sunset hour, it didn’t feel quite warm enough to swim but the champagne definitely made it feel more tempting.  I know that swimming season is just around the corner and I can’t wait.  I also can’t wait to tell you more about this trip … soon! xx

Isn’t it so beautiful?
