A couple weeks ago I had the lovely pleasure of shooting my first ever engagement session. The couple is a very near and dear pair to me and I was beyond honored to go to Palm Springs with my trusty assistant turned videographer (oh you will die over what he made) husband, Potsch, to capture the exuberant love abounding from these two. Margaret and Patrick will be tying the knot in absolute style this September. It is sure to be an affair to remember.
Through the hot hot heat of the early summer desert we four had a blast frolicking in the sand and hidden jungles of classic Palm Springs. There is nothing like a desert sunset in Joshua Tree to really set the mood for romance and bring right to the present of your glorious life. Or maybe that is just the effect M+P has on me.

This was a long week where my mind, body, closet and mirror would not seem to get on the same seam. Haha see what I did there? I pulled through a couple times and hit bottom a couple times. But here you go: My Week in the Elevator.
I love this outfit in person but it doesn't seem to photograph in an elevator with barely any light very well. Shirt is from Target (of course) my pants are a size 16 for which I have not been since before high school. Crazy. Skinny Rock Star pants from Old Navy. And my shoes were a BIG move for me. I am not much of a heel gal but I have always wanted to be. Today was the day. Shoes from target.
For the first time I am tan (kinda) thanks to Thailand which makes me like showing off my legs. This is my sort of child look. I dig it. Dress from Lane Bryant. Ban.do heart. My favorite.
This was the pits! I don't know what I was thinking. I was feeling the stress to impress and my brain just got all foggy. I was in a foul mood all day from this outfit. Total Booo. It started with my boots on the outside which Potsch thought looked better but again my brain was in a fog. I just got these real jeans, no stretch, no jegging aspect. By the time I got out of the car from the drive to work the waist and knees were all strechted out. Not cute having a baggy crotch all day. Shirt was weird. Whole color combo was just sad. I will not be telling you where to get these items.
I am on the fence about this look. It was so comfortable!!! It started with the shirt tied which was cool but I could not get it to photograph well and then I was sitting all day so I untied it. But I think it would make a great maternity outfit. Again, so comfy!!!
Dress from...Target. Shirt is just a mans denim button up.
I couldn't take it anymore. I knew I was not happy with week clothes so today I pulled it out with what makes me smile the most: COLOR!!!! I wore that cardigan at my wedding so it always brings a smile to me face. Shirt is a HoneyB bow. LOVE!! Bass Saddle shoes. Favorites! and my new Old Navy Rock Star skinny pants fresh from the dirty clothes.
Hopefully you did better than I this week. I promise to do my best this weekend and put some thought into next week. Maybe this is a perfect reason to go shopping? I feel an obsession coming on.
So many pretty pretty things. So many more on the site.
