Late Night Laguna Beach

 
 
I can't help but laugh when I look at these pictures. They remind me of the cheesy opening credits to Laguna Beach from a million years ago. A book cover perhaps? This dress is totally not my usual style, either. Something about it really jumped at me on the Motel Rocks site though and I just had to have it! It's like biker meets vixen meets girly. I don't know. I just know I need some fierce Sam Edelman Zoe boots to pair with it! Yes and yes! I opted to go the "Kaelah" route by pairing it with a dainty floral cardi with a big print. I think it helps balance it out a little bit. I'm thinking next time I'm going to opt for a cream lace motorcycle jacket! I think the styling opportunity for this dress is endless! I'm a bit short in the torso though, so I had to keep it pulled up to avoid any indecent exposure. Yowza! (Sorry for so many photos!)

 
  
 
 

The sunset makes these photos, without a doubt. We've had so much fun poking around various places in my hometown to take pictures. These were taken three blocks from my parents' house in a parking lot. I guess the uber rainy day had something positive about it! 

 
 

At this point I'm sure Mike and I are elbow deep in roadtrip singalongs, Diet Cokes, and instax photos. Exciting, right?! Hope your Thursday is positively perfect, honeybees! xo

  19. That dress is so sassy!

    Have you explored Printer's Alley or the Arcade downtown for pictures? Printer's Alley used to be a favorite of mine for photo ops: the random cement pot-o-gold, the bright red door, faded mural, etc. It's really lovely in an urban decay sort of way.

  27. These photos are amazing; I am so jealous you have a talented photographer fiance; my other half has a skill at taking almost exclusively out of focus photographs even on an autofocus digital. It's a gift. You look gorgeous as always, and that sunset is a beaut!
