Last weekend my friend Amy and I got in her car and drove all around Fayetteville in search for some dogwood blooms. Dogwoods are trees and their buds are the state flower of North Carolina. The only bad thing about them is that they only bloom for about a week, and then they die. We did find a few trees like the tall white one pictured below, but we also found some lovely pink bushes with hibiscus-like flowers. I love exploring during a photo shoot. I generally pick a spot and just walk around and explore the entire time with my photographer, capturing my outfit as we go. It’s especially fun to shoot like that while traveling.
While I don’t have any special Easter plans, I couldn’t help but get in the holiday spirit with some pastel shades. This dress by Rebecca Taylor was the perfect dress to style among the North Carolina flora. It’s lovely blue color compliments all the pink around it! You can shop my dress here, and you can also find it in white here. I picked up these Aldo heels for $60 and I could not be more obsessed. I love how they are formal and informal at the same time, they have a small heel, and a light pink color. They will be so easy to style with future shoots and I can even wear them to work. Win-win!
I hope everyone has a fabulous Easter and that everyone is enjoying this beautiful spring weather 🙂
