Beach Fashion: Featuring Marianne

Most of my summers were spent at the beach, IN the water surfing. Even if there were no waves that day, I would somehow talk my mom into dropping my friends and I off for the day and picking us up later, like it was some sort of institutional daycare. If there were no waves, we would carefully examine the tides and usually paddle out anyways in hopes of a miracle. We were that committed. By the end of the day, the beach left us sunburnt and worn out. But we loved it. And I still love it to this day! Most recently though, I have found that my time is being spent out of the water. My husband keeps prodding me to get back in and go surfing. He is right, I know I will have to do it again soon! 

At a recent shoot with Marianne, she brought a super colorful tunic, which screams "Take me to the beach!":) We lucked out with some pretty amazing morning light for this shoot! I love the bold "happy" colors, perfect for summer. To find out where you can get this tunic, check out Marianne's blog post here!

Happy July 4th!!


Downtown Stuart Photos: Marianne Fashion Blogger

One warm spring afternoon in a quaint riverside area of downtown Stuart, Marianne and I met up for one of our fashion photo shoots.  I always look forward to these shoots in eager anticipation! In fact, sometimes before we meet up, I prep myself by rummaging through my own closet and piece together a somewhat spiffy outfit. After all, I want to impress the fashion correspondent, of course!

When we are out on these shoots, I am always excited to see which outfit she will feature, what accessories she will wear, and what shoes she will stroll around in. I always get lots of inspiration from her style! 

Take away tip for me: Wear more skirts! Right now I own three skirts. Just three! I don't wear them nearly as often as I probably should, but when I do, I instantly feel "dressed up".

Also, note to self: go out and buy some cute black sandals :) These are SO cute!

Read lots more about this outfit on the Fashion Correspondent, Marianne's blog post! And be sure to check out more amazing styles on her Happy Closet Blog website :)
