While Mom was in town for a recent visit, Ashley Kickliter snapped some pictures of us and Tilda after getting coffee at Overall Company in Opelika, AL. I'm so happy for Mom to finally share this side of the lens with me, since she's the one typically taking the photos for my blog. In all honesty, no words could even begin to express the amount of love and admiration I have for this woman. Getting to live life as her daughter is one of the greatest blessings I have known in life. I love you, Mom. To the moon and back.

Hot Pink

Here's another post featuring one of my looks that I styled for the April 2014 prom issue of Teen Vogue. This dress is one of my all time favorites in my wardrobe. I love it so much, in fact, that when Erin Fetherston contacted me to style some pieces from her Spring/Summer 2014 line, I really just could not pass up styling it once again (click here to see the other way I styled it). I can't wait until the next chance I get to wear this fun, girly frock. For this particular look, I paired it with a pair of polka dot tights to emphasis the whimsical side of the dress. I added my purple velvet brocade coat as a way to bring out the tones in the floral embellishment, as well as to add an addition print to the mix. To complete the look, I added my YSL wedges, which I only save for the most special of occasions... For one, they are without a doubt the nicest shoes I own, and for two, they really know how to kill a girl's feet.

I've been so very fortunate to have met so many people while living in Auburn who share my interests. Recently, I met up with Katie of Lady K Blog (which, by the way, you should totally check out) for some coffee. Afterwards, we walked around downtown Auburn scouting people with street style to snap for a project she was working on. She even snapped some photos of me for the project.

Friends

As I mentioned in my previous post, for fall break, Anna, Jessica, Ashley, and I took a quick trip to Destin, Florida. We had such a fun time taking these pictures together while watching the most magical sunset. There's nothing better than special moments with special people.
