I’ve been debating what I wanted to share for my first post of 2017 for a few days now. I don’t know why I felt like it had to be something special, but it’s a new year, and I wanted to commemorate it somehow! Resolutions aren’t really my thing, although I did make one this year, I don’t really make lists of goals, and I’m not in to telling you guys what to do so no lists of “how to have a great 2017” (even though I actually love reading what people come up with for those, I just chose not to do them myself!)
After much deliberation, I’ve decided that I would just like to share my favorite photoshoot from 2016. I have met, and connected with so many amazing people since I started this blog, and this shoot in particular really represents that to me! I met up with Nellie, of Sincerely Nellie Photography, and the snarky genius behind Satire and Silk, to One; shoot some photos in a spot that both of us had been dying to visit, and Two; actually meet each other in person! We are traveling to Paris in February, along with two other amazing ladies and she and I were the only two that hadn’t met in person yet. Luckily we got along swimmingly, and I can not wait to travel with her next month!
Anyways, since we weren’t necessarily aiming for a typical outfit post, I wanted to do something a little more artsy and fun for it. I picked up this gorgeous orange dress by Free People, and we headed up to the Volunteer Park Conservatory (a greenhouse in Seattle), and went to town! I know this dress isn’t really winter fashion appropriate, but I just couldn’t resist it. It was one of those pieces that just makes you feel so pretty, and glamorous. The conservatory was perfect for it, and a beautiful place to explore too. I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I am a huge plant lover. I have a ton of plants in my apartment, and I love going to places like this, that have a bunch of happy plants that I don’t normally get to see. I mean come on, they had a whole room dedicated to cacti and succulents, I was basically in heaven.
I ended up pairing this perfect boho dress with a moto jacket to add some edge, a hat, a cute little turquoise necklace from Clementine Vintage, and my favorite Frye booties. I love how the whole outfit came together to just ooze boho western vibes, and I am definitely going to rock it a lot more when the weather gets nicer. It’s taken me a long time to come around to maxi dresses, but I’m so glad I did, because I had so much fun swishing around the greenhouse in this little number.
Happy new year guys, I hope 2017 brings amazing things to you all!
