On weekends you will most likely find me in some rendition of this outfit.

How gorgeous is that Rachel Pally dress in the last photo and did I mention there is a video? If you haven’t seen it yet, I would head on over to Glitter Guide and give it a gander. It definitely captures the magic of the day.

Here are a few of my favorite shots of the day and check back for more in a few. Also be sure to head on over to Glitter Guide to see the entire feature.

from the weekend: a not so sunny afternoon

a sunny afternoon picnic // smitten studioI have been feeling a bit under the weather the last few days, fighting some sort of cold. So other then a lazy picnic on the beach Sunday, I spent most of the weekend sleeping or watching Friends re-runs and wishing my mom lived closer. I hope you guys had a better weekend!

from the weekend: summer in michigan

summer in michiganI’m back in LA today dreaming of the time we spent last week at the cabin. Every time we go I fall in love more and more with my home state of Michigan. The best part of this weekend was filled with sunshine, looong beach days, quiet walks, sunset beach fires, and a few games of scrabble. :)
