up, up and away! i am so excited to share this shoot with you all. this is probably the most fun i've had taking style pictures, ever! and that says a lot. leandra asked if i've gotten used to it yet, to which i responded "will i ever?" i always feel pretty awkward during a photoshoot with people staring and i don't think that is ever going to change but shooting this dress and giant balloon was probably the most comfortable i felt.
this gorgeous catalina dress is by kora rae. i am absolutely in love with this print. they also have it in a cute maxi dress and shorts but this dress was just too cute to pass up. i don't normally wear short dresses. only because for me, EVERYTHING looks really really short. but i wanted to step out of my comfort zone and i believe it worked out in my favor. and right now, you can get $50 off at korarae.com (excludes kittenish line) with code HELLOTUESDAY. happy shopping :)
at first, i envisioned this dress with some cute nude strappy heels (which i still wouldn't mind seeing) but when i tried it on with my steve madden pointy pumps i just couldn't help myself. i'm not usually the matchy-matchy type but they just seem to pop without taking too much attention from the dress which i loved!
every now and then there would be a gush of wind and it felt as if i was going to float away with the balloon by balloon bar. maybe if i had a few more, haha!
how great is this combination of my beautiful floral dress and giant purple balloon? i'm obsessed!
me: "i really need a tan!"
leandra: *takes photo and looks down at her fancy camera* "yeah, you do!"
lol, i will hopefully lay out this weekend. i really am too light for summer!
i hope you all have an amazing day today! i really can't say enough how grateful i am for leandra! her work is amazing and i'm really getting to know austin little by little. we always have a lot of fun shooting together and i can't wait to share more. until next time, xo ❥
