Flower Girl Shoot

We had the amazing opportunity to do a pretend bridal/flower girl photo shoot yesterday!  Krystal's Adorable Accents sent us this beautiful white tulle dress.  It is a dream! It has tons of tulle layers, making it super full and fairytale like!
When you get the dress, you have your choice between three different colors of sashes.  They have rheinstones all the way around and tie in the back with satin ribbon.  Charlie's favorite was, of course, the pink.  Mine was the blue!

Charlie just loved wearing this dress. She had to "help" me carry it to the car and couldn't stop talking about it from the minute we got it out of the package it came in! This dress would truly be special for a little flower girl!
We grabbed a couple of roses from the garden for her to hold.  She loves flowers and couldn't stop smelling them the whole photo shoot.  She was determined to save one for her big sister!
I couldn't believe how perfect the lighting was for this shoot, or how perfect that garden with the white fences was! I'm pretty sure she thought she was part of a fairytale while we were in this spot.

Lace Cream Dress

We received this amazing package from 3claps a few days ago with a bunch of dresses!  We are SO excited to share all of them with you! 
The first dresses we did a photo shoot in were the lace cream dresses.  They would be so amazing as a flower girl dress, or even just a dress to wear to a friends/families wedding. The quality is amazing.  The lace is sturdy but dainty.  There are lots of layers of tulle and a satin type lining.  There is an invisible zipper going up the back.  One of my favorite parts of this dress is the sheer top.  I love how fancy and delicate it is! 
You can purchase this dress here: Keira Dress 
You can purchase the shoes here: Avery shoes in black (on sale for $48 right now so hurry!)
We are in love with this new location that we stumbled upon!  There are water features and brick arch ways.  It's just beautiful!

Shopping at Guess

The other day, we received some back to school items from GUESS.  I needed some things to go with the dress so we headed to our local outlet mall, where they have a GUESS outlet.  We stopped in to get a purse for me, but Charlie seems to have taken it over!
This denim polka dot dress is just darling!  It's perfect for back to school, or even a day of shopping with mom! The dress can be purchased from the link below:
After we took a few photos, we stopped at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory next door and got ourselves a treat!  I had her take a few photos with my caramel candy apple. We really wanted the classic red candy apple, but it was going to be half an hour before they were ready, so we settled for a caramel one!
Charlie's treat pick was a marshmallow dipped in white chocolate with a gummy worm on it.  Why do kids always pick the grossest looking treats?! I'm sure it was delicious, though!
The purse we picked out is super cute!  It's brown and navy with chain accent on the over the shoulder handle.  It fits my license and debit card, my phone and keys just perfectly!  It's a great bag to grab when you're going shopping! I couldn't find it online to share the link with you, but you might still be able to purchase it in store.
I love how I was able to accessorize with red shoes and leggings to match the red flower on the belt of the dress! It worked out so perfectly, as well, that the bag we got from purchasing the purse was red and went with the whole outfit!
We can't wait to share the next GUESS look with you that we put together! It involves denim and faux fur!  Make sure to subscribe so you don't miss out! It's stinkin cute!
Thank you GUESS for the adorable denim dress!

Little Jadore

Little Jadore and Butterfly Wings
We are so excited to share this photo shoot with you!  This dress from Little Jadore is perfection.  The tulle and knit top are so soft and sweet and there is even a turquoise sequin applique on the bodice. The minute we got this dress in the mail, Charlie snatched it up and ran in the other room with it to try it on. She adores anything with tulle and sparkle.
You can purchase the dress here: Azure Dress
Charlie's shoes are from: Jetaime For Girls
They sell lots of cute shoes, even mommy and me sets!
I used sheer ribbon on Charlie's legs.  It isn't a part of the shoes.
We got the wings at 40% off at  the craft store, Joann's. They are actually adult sized, but we knotted the elastics that hold them on to make them small enough for her.  I'll admit, they were hard to work with. The didn't want to stay open.
Our best kept secret is that you never have to pay full price at Joanns.  In fact, you can almost always get items you want for 40-50% off.  They always have a 50% off coupon to print on their website and they accept competitors coupons if they sell the same item that you are using the coupon for. You can use more than one coupon per transaction as long as the UPC symbols are all different. Places you can get coupons to use at Joann's are Michaels and Hobby Lobby. Shoot, now our secrets out! ;)
The sunset tonight was pastel and dreamy, which made for a perfect photo backdrop.

There was a field with tons of dandelions, which if you know Charlie, you know she's obsessed with dandelions. She can't help herself.  She was picking bouquets of them and making lots of wishes.  She said, "Mommy, you know what I wished for?  A new toy!"

After we spent a while making dandelion wishes, we took a short walk to the beach. Charlie insisted! I was ready to go home, but Charlie LOVES to play in the water and she knew the waves were just over that little hill from the dandelion field.  I was so glad she talked me in to it because it was a beautiful evening with an even more beautiful sunset!  It was warm enough to jump in the waves, too!

As always, thank you for stopping by our blog!
We hope that you enjoyed this photo shoot as much as we did! It's hard to call what we do work.  It's just too much fun. We are so grateful for the opportunity to work with so many amazing companies!
