So a couple of weeks ago I attended The Knot Pro Workshop in Washington D.C. The day came with amazing speakers, presentations, and the inclusive feeling of being around industry professionals (something I’m endeavorimg to be) happy to network and share their wealth of knowledge. One of many things offered at this event was the opportunity to have a headshot taken professionally and of course I practically jumped at this chance! I received my photo back this morning and this is the result. Thank you to Love Life Images for their work, I love it!
This weekend past, I took another trip into Middleburg, Virginia but this time with my family to celebrate younger sister’s twenty-first birthday.
A favorite location of mine for its quiet and amazing service, for three days we stayed at the Salamander Resort & Spa. Sitting on 340 acres in the heart of the city, it’s the perfect haven of recreation of relaxation with activities to suit persons of all ages. Take a peek at a few of my favorite shots from that lovely couple of days!
Blair Waldorf & Chuck Bass, monarchs of the Upper East Side, in the much loved and remembered show Gossip Girl thrilled and wowed us for five years with their fashion sense. From the halls of Constance Billard and St. Jude to the streets of Paris they demonstrated the way to be the best dressed and most talked about persons in a room. So here’s to Blair Cordelia Waldorf and Charles Bartholomew Bass and their epic wardrobes, long may they reign in our hearts and memories!
A few years ago, a dear friend of mine invited me down to hunt country in Middleburg, VA for the annual spring race and of course, I was hooked. A sunny day for pretty dresses, hats, socializing while sipping on Veuve Clicquot, and watching beautiful horses and their riders speed across a race course, I couldn’t think of a better way to spend a weekend. Since that first year, I’ve tried to make each outfit better than the last. This year I had two dresses as options thanks to the new collaboration between Victoria Beckham and Target–you can find the full line here. Unable to decide between the two, I put them on Instagram and asked my followers to choose!
The likes came rolling in and the next morning, it was decided–I was to wear the black and white seventies number.
Dress: Victoria Beckham for Target | Fascinator: August Hat Company | Watch: Olivia Burton | Shades: Unique Vintage
Although pink is a much loved color for spring, I found this ensemble to be much more to my liking and taste as it was memorable and allowed me to perfectly pair it with a black netted fascinator, over the top cat-eyes shades, and a perfect red lip!
Everything is popping up with bows!
And I couldn’t be more excited. Trends will go as fast as they come, but I’m determined to ride this wave out till the newest fad reaches our shores. I’d like to take a moment to thank the universe that flower crowns seem to have found their exit, I never caught on to the flower child idea. The bridal spring designs for 2018 brought us many things that French and elegant fashions have praised for years. From skirts resembling that of the much beloved Grace Kelly’s own bridal gown to silhouettes that bring to mind Audrey Hepburn in all of her forms, with sprinkles of bows, pearls, and black velvet in between, here are just some of the gorgeous gowns to grace the catwalks this year!
