So I am really excited to finally be sharing these photos with you today!  I teamed up again with Taryn and Shelby of JOIELALA to create a spring inspired lookbook.  And this is the first of the series! I really can’t get over how good those girls are!  Yeesh!  All the photos are just so dreamy.  Their play on light is what always gets me.  I wish I knew how to use a camera this way! Haha.  I’ve been saying that forever.  But I guess I am just glad I have talented friends to collaborate with! …..more to come!

What I’m wearing:

Crocheted Top by Free People / Re-constructed silk dress (from mom’s closet!) / Ecote T-Strap Wedge from Urban Outfitters / H&M bracelet


Rylee and I leave today to head to Wisconsin to attend my grandfathers funeral and to spend some time in the north woods with my grandma.  For those of you who have sent encouraging notes and emails….thank you so much!  I truly appreciate it.  I hope our time there can be a celebration of his amazing life.  Tears, no doubt, but I am so happy he is home.  As hard as it is to say goodbye, we all know he is in a better place now.  It will be Rylee’s first time on a plane…and away from daddy….so we will see how that goes!  She is a little trooper so I’m sure we will be fine!   I have some wonderful bloggers who will be filling in here while I am away!  So lots of fun stuff coming up!  Enjoy!  I will “see you” soon.

    Beautiful shots, and the light is so dreamy ? Is there some kind of filters or is it Photoshop made ?

    love these photos they are absolutely gorgeous! I’ve always favored airy and whimsical photography as well! Your friend is very talented and I personally love your style. Havih purchased my own dslr a few years ago, all I can stress is practice and online tutorials .. Just as well I’m sure your friend can show you some tricks of the trade as well. Totally a hobby worth learning .. Especially in this day in age :) lovely post!

    Beautiful photos! That crochet top is amazing. I found your blog via Food Coma, and when I saw you’re from San Diego I knew I really had to say hello. :)
