Florals in the City

Dress: Jack by BB Dakota {sold out} | Shoes: Vince Camuto | Jacket: F21 (similar) | Earrings: Anthropologie (similar) | Purse: Chanel {Fall 2012 limited ed.–similar here} | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelet: Juicy Couture | Nails: Essie ‘Ballet Slippers’

These beautiful photographs were taken by the lovely Lauren W Photography, and let me tell you, that girl has got some mad skill.  {Wait, mad is a good adjective these days, right?} I had such a great time conquering downtown Louisville with her.  And when I say “conquering,” I really mean sweating my buns off because it was the hottest day of August and giving awkward facial expressions as she tested her camera’s lighting.  See the below photo for some gorgeous posing inspiration by the one and only, moi. {You’re welcome.}

Clearly, you all need to have more boob sweat and awkward facial expressions in photos.  Look how…lovely…this one turned out.

Also, this is the first time I busted out my Chanel purse.  Why, you may ask?  Because I can’t carry that thing without feeling massive amounts of anxiety.  Do I feel fabulous? Oh yes, yes I do. So, I guess it’s worth it.  It probably goes down as one of the best birthday gifts I’ve ever gotten…until I looked across the dinner table and saw the wrath on my sister’s face {like she’s never gotten anything nice in her life, puh-lease}.  We still talk about it a year later because it was just one of the funniest scenes.

Anyways, go on over to Lauren’s photography blog and check out some of her latest photos!  You’ll get hooked, I promise.
