I am so excited to finally be sharing these photos that I shot with the talented ladies of LC Photography late in the Fall.  If you are local to Utah, you should definitely check them out.  Not only are they amazing at what they do, but they are really fun to work with.  And if you are ever in need of a floral crown (and rest assured, EVERY girl should own one-trust me), also be sure to check out my friend Stevi’s Etsy store.  She truly makes the most incredible things and is equally as wonderful to work with!

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

You guys!  I have been dying to share these photos with you since the day we got them back from LC Photography.  J and I send out a Christmas card every year, and this year I wanted to do a Christmas inspired shoot up in our beloved mountains of Utah. We had never done anything holiday themed before so it was a pretty fun project to work on.  Plus, it’s always a bonus to be photographed by the incredibly talented duo that makes up LC Photography AND get some photos with my handsome hubby (who is always such a good sport and incredibly supportive of all of my creative endeavors)!

And so, from our family to yours, Merry, Merry, Christmas….

Merry Christmas to you and yours!!!!!

Mellow Yellow

As promised, I wanted to show you all my fave JCrew dress without the vest (see the post of it with the vest here), for a little more dressed up version of this look.  Also, it should be noted that I am really loving neon yellow right now.  In fact, it’s kind of to the point where I feel like I just might need an intervention. To me, neon yellow is just like sunshine, only kicked up a notch.  But I want to know what you guys think!  Are you loving this color as much as I am this summer?  And which look do you prefer?  With or without the vest?

Denim on Denim

I’m always a little hesitant to wear two denim pieces together. It probably stems from growing up in Montana and not wanting to be caught in the dreaded “Canadian Tuxedo” (or as I am sure they call it, the “Montana Tuxedo”).  But I have found that if your two denims differ enough, then wearing denim on denim is perfectly acceptable, and even quite stylish given the current trend!  So take it from me and don’t be afraid to rock your denim pieces together-just make sure you have some contrast!

Lemon Lime

YOU GUYS!  I am back!  My apologies for the radio silence on the blog last week!  I was traveling for work and on vacation and between our crazy adventures and some unexpected technical issues with my memory card (I lost all of the outfit posts I had planned!), I just couldn’t get any content up.  But boy did I miss you all and couldn’t be happier to be back and sharing today’s post!

If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t, you can follow me here), then you know I had the opportunity to do a photo shoot with the incredibly talented LC Photography a couple of weeks ago.  I had such an amazing time working with them and was so happy to finally have the perfect opportunity to shoot my beloved neon tulle skirt from The Girl That Loves.  Tulle is all the rage right now and The Girl That Loves has an assortment of incredible colors and styles that are also extremely comfortable.  So if you are looking to indulge your girly, flirty side, then be sure to check them out!  And if you are in Utah, the be sure to check out LC Photography-they are the best!IMG_4231 IMG_3782 IMG_3791 IMG_3867 IMG_4164

I hope you all had a WONDERFUL 4th of July weekend!  We spent our holiday in the cute little town of Red Lodge, Montana and had such a fantastic time.  My only wish is that it could have lasted just a little bit longer. But isn’t that how it usually goes???

Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by, and happy Monday!
