Portraiture //: Joy & Jeremy

 | Joy & Jeremy |

Can you believe that it's Friday?? 

        Last Tuesday we spent the entire day in St. Louis dodging harsh, direct sunlight for Joy's portrait session. There is, however, one thing that I love about those long hours where the sun is in its full glory, indoor portraits. Somewhere unique with large windows and loads of natural light. 

We found ourselves at Blueprint Coffee. Their space is just glorious & their coffee can't be beat,  (Craving another iced latte as I type this!) but most of all it was filled with natural sunlight.  We're talking giant windows, subway tile, natural wood tables, giant windows, and award winning baristas. Heaven. 

Do you have any dream spots you'd love to photograph in?

Black & White //: Florals

I'm feeling you, black & white.
I may never go back//

I was having the worst day ever.
Only Friday will determine if it gets any better.
Life is weird.
Life is embarrassing. 
Life is unpredictable.

Embarrassed & Optimistic,

Clothing //: Four & a Half Years a Favorite

(Insert Degree Deodorant joke here^) 

Zachary bought me this perfectly simple grey dress for my 19th birthday.
It continues to be my favorite and a staple in my shrinking wardrobe.

      I am in the process of eliminating a lot of unneeded belongings from my life, clothing being the most overwhelming. While combing the internet for ways that I could minimize my closet and clutter I came across an idea that I absolutely love, capsule wardrobes. (If you haven't heard of it, look it up! It's a grand guideline to basics that you can mix and match. Thanks Pinterest!!) 

Things I am currently keeping/ trying to purchase
• grey, black, white, cream, & navy
• Stripes, solids, & heathers
• simple tops: sheer, cotton, button-ups
• skinny knit black pants, dark denim, boyfriend jeans, black dressy shorts
• leather clutch & large cognac bucket purse 
• leather sandles, dessert booties, black grey & brown flats
• Solid dresses, neutrals or pastels
• Denim shirts, dresses, shorts, skirts, underwear (kidding...!)

If you had to narrow it down, what would you not be able to live without??
Are you a neutrals gal, or does color rule your wardrobe?

Keeping what matters,
