You Are What You Love

If you are reading this right now, it means that I survived my Monday back to reality after my vacation. I may have required a coffee the size of my head to get things moving and shaking, but I'm back on track, back in the game, and back in the saddle, so to speak. I'm so excited for this post for a few big reasons. First of all, this was my very first photo shoot done with another blogger! Featured below is the beautiful & stylish Kate from O My Heart! - who I have been pals with for a number of years. Doing outfit shots together was so much fun - it's so much easier to be animated when you're with someone who a) understands outfit shots and b) laughs hysterically at your out take pictures. 

The second big reason this post was extra exciting to me was so I could take the opportunity to shout out a big thank you to Tieka of Selective Potential for helping me with my blog design. Tieka did my entire layout, including my header, buttons, font titles, linking, and well.. everything! I put this outfit together in direct inspiration from one of the first outfits that got me hooked on her blog last year - so gorgeous - I hope I did you justice with this interpretation!

(Dress: French Connection, Tights: Hue, Wedges: Aldo, Scarf: Mexx, Belt: Thrifted, Earrings: Aldo)

This dress was given to me by a dear friend who wore it once - beautifully - but decided that it just didn't suit her. It fit me like a glove, and I was so thankful to inherit such a high quality LBD. Thanks, S. <3 

To return the favor of these beautiful shots, I did Kate's photos for the day, and we finished with some hilariously effervescent side by side shots. Go on over to Kate's blog to see the rest of her look. So lovely!

Happy Tuesday, everyone!
