How are you?
I know I say this a lot but I am so excited to share this post with you! The look itself is a great outfit for this time of year. The beginning of spring, when it is still cool in the morning and then comfortable in the afternoons.
That is how it was when I took these pictures! When I set out to this spot, I already knew from a prior shoot that it was a cool location, but then I got there and it was even better than I imagined! The trees were all in bloom and the sky was so crisp and blue! It was beautiful! It had me feeling so happy!
And then everywhere I looked I was met with inspiration! All of the brick buildings, the light poles, the brick sidewalks, the fountain! There were so many places for the perfect pictures!
The look features one of my all time favorite piece -the pale blue, pleated, midi skirt! You guys all probably know by now that my love for this skirt runs deep! It is so femininene, and beautiful!
I styled it with a chunky knit, in a grey color which pairs nicely with the skirt. The differing textures also makes for a fun combo.
I feel like I look a lot taller in this outfit, I think it is the pleats in the skirt! (One more reason to love it!)
One of the pictures I envisioned was up on the ledge of the fountain. I really wanted the picture to be me walking on the ledge of the fountain.
However, I also had a fear of falling into the fountain! And I only had 10 seconds to get in place. At first, I really did not know if I was going to be able to make it happen. But after a few tries and a little encouragement from a friend, I finally got it!
Let me just tell you guys, my legs were WEAK afterwards! xD
The whole day just gave me more motivation to continue to push myself out of my comfort zone and try different things. And to keep trying until I get it right! This whole shoot probably took a little over an hour, but I really wanted to bring my visions to life, and I am very happy with what I came up with!
Thank you guys so much for reading! Have a great weekend! =)
