Our family has enjoyed getting to know Brian + Carla since we have moved to the Seattle area. They have been our go to people for where to go, how to get there, where to eat, + what sights to see. So basically our own personal google or yelp, not to mention house/dog/babysitter!
By the way they treat each other and those around them this child will be born into a home of great love + respect. I have no doubt they will be incredible parents and I can’t wait for it to be my turn to help them out!
We were thrilled to hear the response on our last Runway to Reality post + decided to go for it again after this recent runway season. Never ones to turn down an opportunity to shop, we’ve spent the last few weeks watching the racks for some of this years runway trends. Inspired both by Fall/Winter 2015 + Spring/Summer 2016, here are a few I thought I’d visit this season.
The Crop Top with a little Print Blocking thrown in: The crop top had its moment in the sun…or so you thought. With this genius trend you can transition it to fall/winter. Keep it in your closet for some extra shelf life by pulling it over tunics, button ups + dresses. To be honest I wasn’t much of a crop top girl this summer but now I wish I had a few more to play with!
I also experimented with Print Blocking. Thanks to inspiration from We, the Timeless, I have had a little foray into print on print with my husbands dress shirts + ties. Now I’m ready to accept the challenge and pull more looks together with already-there pieces in my closet!
Victorian Blousing: Crisp lace, high collars + bows as seen from Monique Lhuillier, Alberta Ferretti + Philosophy di Lorenzo. Not much of a frilly or romantic girl, my first thought is ‘Pass!’. So because I favor more of an edgy look, I paired the blousing with suiting. To further this trend imma gonna hit the racks again in search of a blouse with a big floppy bow.
Poncho/Cape: So. Many. Ponchos. The selection out there is endless right now. Fur, fringe, belted, printed, take your pick! The tricky part is proportion. Being the height of an ant, I tend to drown in them so when I found this one at Anthro it had to come home with me. Oh, + how cute would it be with a big bowed Victorian blouse as seen below?!
When you move to a new area there are just some people who make the transition a lot easier. Meet one of the families that has been a saving grace since I stepped foot in the PNW. I enjoyed having these sweet dimpled faces + their parents in front of my lens the other morning. With her little girl creeping up on the one year mark, this mom is very well aware of how quickly time is passing. Here we are at the Snoqualmie River to document their family at this very busy stage!
There was no way this little guy was gonna let his mama get thrown into the water!
Here’s a peek into my Oregon trip iPhone style. #alsosorrynotsorry
I’d like to take this time to thank my siblings for moving new places every couple of years so I can get my traveling in. You da real MVP.
Also, quick interjection here, there are some SLR photos in the mix. I double doggy dare you to see if you can even spot the difference!
