Hello retro garden party! A maxi dress with a full-on floral print is so fun for spring. The best part about flowing maxi or midi dresses is that they look so good on all body types. The silhouette elongates the body, and the cinched waist combined with the floor length skirt makes everyone look stylish.
Welcome Spring! While the spring equinox was nearly a month ago it sure doesn’t feel like spring in most places. In fact, when I took these photos in North Carolina the next few weeks were bitterly cold. Now that I am located in Washington I feel like it’s winter part II. That hasn’t stopped me from thinking all things spring. And just because it doesn’t feel like spring, doesn’t mean it isn’t so let’s embrace is whether it’s 70 or 55 degrees! In this post I am sharing 10 tips to embrace spring to truly get you in the seasonal spirit. I hope they help make your spring brighter.
1. Plant a flower/tree or buy one to leave on your front step
There is nothing that will freshen up your life like some fresh blooms. Even if the grass and trees haven’t caught on that it’s spring, a little pop of color in your front yard or on your front doorstep will brighten up your day. After all, the world laughs in flowers!
The back detail trend is so fun. As they say business in the front – party in the back! I love this white shirt because in the front it looks like a classic button down, but once I turn around it has a beautiful crisscross detail.
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.
