How was your Father’s day yesterday!!?  It was our first time celebrating Sam as a daddy, so that was pretty fun!  We barbequed at my dad’s, hung out with family, and laughed pretty hard at all of Rylee’s new antics.  She is developing quite the personality!  It’s still weird to us to be included in Mother’s Day and Father’s Day….because it’s so normal to just honor our own parents on those holidays.  But now I guess we qualify too! haha. Sometimes I feel so much younger than I am (anyone with me!? ha!)  Anyway, I am so thankful for my dad and his unconditional love, support, and encouragement in my life.  All my life he has been a strength I can rely on and I have never doubted his love for me. I am who I am today because of the way he raised me, and I’m so lucky to call him dad.  And now, to see Sam take on the role of father to his own baby girl, melts my heart into a big puddle on the floor!  I am SO incredibly thankful for him….for the husband he is to me, and the father he is to Rylee.  It’s the best thing in the world to watch him love her.  To see his face light up when he see’s her, to watch him rock her to sleep, to hear them laughing uncontrollably together downstairs. Life with these two (and hopefully a few others) will be a pretty darn good one.

I didn’t mean to gush all over the place!  Back to the photos at hand.  Peach and collars….2 of my favorite things.  These photos are the third series in our Spring Inspired shoot with JOIELALA.  It’s no secret i’m a fan of peach.  So this skirt falls into my top ten closet go-to’s (it’s no longer available but this one is kind of like it).  I paired it with a simple ivory blouse, collar necklace, and suede heels. Easy breezy.

Happy Monday.  What are you all working on this week?

    kelli, it’s ok to gush away about the fathers in your life. they’ve earned it! i like your neutral peach animal print effortless while looking chic outfit. :)

    Beautiful as always Kelli! I wish I had the ability to pull off the amazing styles you wear! I live in splendid and alternative apparel tank tops, jeans, and Havaiana’s flip flops. BORING. I have been SO into pale peach lately (which is crazy, because my mom forced me to have a peach bedroom until I was 12 or so, and I swore to her I would spend the rest of my life hating it!). I just bought some custom spun yarn in a lovely sorbet peach to use as hair on one of my upcoming dolls. Can’t wait to get it!

    Sounds like your family had a wonderful fathers day :) this is such a great outfit (and photography), you look like your art!

    Ahh, that is so exciting that you get to be included in the festivities now! It must feel so strange to cross that line in life and become that which you once honored.

    I adore the way that you keep this outfit so light with all the pastels. I’m always adding dark to light – but this makes me want to try keeping it completely light.

    You look gorgeous, and the soft lighting is the perfect compliment to your flowy and feminine outfit.

    Congrats to your husband on his first father’s day!

    That sweater is blowing my mind right now – so perfect.

    Glad Sam’s first Father’s Day was a success!
