Polka Dot Scare Crow.

20 Nov

IMG_5378

I love, love, love being comfortable.  Nothing says it more to me than some good leggings, a sweater, and a hat of the moment (because I love hats).  It’s always good to feel comfortable and also warm enough for running errands or being outside.

With the rain (and snow) on it’s way, it will be time to add layers.  In the meantime, enjoy the sweater weather!

Monday Recap: Trash the Dress!

18 Nov

IMG_4653

Our beautiful friend, Francesca, was looking to “trash the dress” so I was excited at an entirely new photo challenge.  Trashing the Dress is a new thing that people do post wedding to really get unique photos they never got at their wedding or where they completely destroy the wedding dress they will never wear again (check out google image searches for “trash the dress”).  Usually at a wedding, the bride and groom are rushed on photos so they can get to their reception.  This was so much fun to venture around the city and shoot photos at some of the most scenic spots in San Francisco.  Francesca and her husband looked fantastic and we picked a beautiful day to take over the city.  Here’s a preview of some of the captures we got.

Travel Friday: New Mexico.

15 Nov

IMG_5566

Last weekend, my mom and I went to Albuquerque to visit my brother, his wife, and their amazing baby boy, Matthew (the most darling nephew in the entire world).  They were great tour guides and took us all around the city.  I found it to be an incredibly beautiful place and would love to go back.  I didn’t realize the altitude was over 6,000ft there but I guess that’s why they call it “high desert!”  Check out my take on Albuquerque.

Grey Patterns.

12 Nov

IMG_4970Do you ever look at articles of clothing and say those aren’t supposed to go together but they do so well?  I’m not sure if I ever get it right but from time to time when I throw two completely different patterns together, they actually work.  I’m loving large cozy socks and thick knits to keep me warm.

I say, if you feel good in it then wear it.  Whatever it may be, including mis-matching prints 🙂

My Space.

8 Nov

Love this!

I live in an apartment in San Francisco which means one thing, organization is key! With a small space I have to make sure that everything I own has it’s place and I can’t hold on to things that could be considered clutter. I’ve gotten pretty creative and found fun ways to hide shoes and repurpose items that I don’t use everyday but don’t necessarily want to get rid of.

My Space(I stack old department store boxes, in this case Kate Spade, and fill them with mementos. I made a pyramid of these boxes and intertwined journals to add height and topped with a piece of coral for decorative purposes.)

My Space(I love my perfume bottles because I think they’re pretty. I stacked two on one my favorite books, Wuthering Heights, and the last honeycombed bottle on small vintage-style pocket mirror that I rarely use but don’t want to part with)

Fall Favorite Snaps

5 Nov

Fall Photography.

IMG_5325

As you know, once the colors start turning they go so fast.  Right now the colors are in their prime so of course we ventured out to capture the gorgeous transition.  These snaps were so easy to shoot, just let mother nature show you her bright side.  When scouting for future shoots, we not only look for lighting but for beautiful settings to paint the backdrop.

My favorite part of having our blog is the creative freedom we have to do whatever we want.  My art is photography and I find no greater joy than to wander on a photo adventure!
