it’s finally friday! the weather in kansas city has included everything from snow to sunshine to rain this week. i can’t quite pack up my fall/winter clothes yet but i’m dying to bust out my spring wardrobe and this shoot for the april issue of her life magazine didn’t help. seeing everything lavish boutique has for spring and summer just made me long for warmer weather even more.
i’m loving all the bright colors and i’m so happy to see that the neon craze isn’t over yet.
i’m slightly obsessed with this darling cream dress and the way we accessorized it. i can’t get enough of bright colors paired with animal prints. and the high curly ponytail…such a fresh look for spring.
and can we just talk about this stunning statement necklace for a minute? i was at lavish working with angel to pull wardrobe for the shoot when i spotted it from across the store. it stopped me in my tracks. (you know me…easily distracted by all things shiny.) i told angel we simply HAD to photograph this necklace and that she might as well tell me the price because once i photographed it i had no intention of returning it. i’ve already worn it a few times and gotten some great compliments on it. when it comes to jewelry, my motto has always been go big or go home.
i’m also loving the unexpected pairing of pearls with camo. what a fun way to dress up a casual pair of pants!
thanks to the great crew we had for this shoot! be sure to grab a copy of the april issue (click here for a list of locations that carry the magazine) and stop by lavish to see what’s new!
