happy friday, all! it finally feels like spring in kc and it’s about time. for sping13 we’re crazy over patterns. after taking much greif (cough, cough, chad.) jordan decided to ask a stylist on set if patterned pants really were too much…. turns out that she confirmed our thoughts about how much they rocked and that confirmation inspired a major pinning spree. there are several ways to pull off patterned pants. we’ve pinned some of our favorites. let’s face it…they rock. and you will too, if you wear them. they scream confidence and cool! we’ve pinned (and fallen head over heels for) florals, polka dot, animal prints, geometrics, tribal prints and more! with so many options you’ll find a pair you can dress up or dress down. now get out and by yourself a pair. halls kansas city has some great options and if you don’t already follow them in instagram, you should! their feed is full spring fashion and loads of pattern right now. oh, and our good friend meg at chasing davies recently posted about a pair of perfect patterned pants. and what’s better than a pair of patterned pants? REVERSIBLE patterned pants! oh, yes! these are a must see. head over to meg’s blog to check them out. […]
i’m so happy that the march issue of her life magazine is finally out and i can share these images. i photographed master gardener wendy clay at family tree nursery on one of the coldest days of the year. shooting inside the temperature controlled greenhouse was amazing! we all decided to pretend it was spring, even if only for a few hours. the light in the greenhouse was phenomenal and the color….don’t even get my started on the color. you can see for yourself how amazing it was, especially after drudging through these last few cold wintery months. we had the usual suspects working together – melissa evans for makeup and amber sexton of double take salon for hair – but we also had someone new this time. we were lucky enough to score the wardrobe styling services of one of my favorite kansas city fashion bloggers, meg davey of chasing davies. be sure to check out meg’s blog for more details on the wardrobe provided by halls kansas city and some behind the scenes photos as well! i loved shooting wendy and learning about her passion for gardening. i find myself in awe of those with a green thumb.
