The Overall Company

One of my favorite things about living in the Auburn/Opelika area, is visiting all of the wonderful local coffee shops. A favorite is The Overall Company. The cozy and authentically Southern setting sets the perfect backdrop to enjoy an incredible latté (because their lattés are 100% incredible).

With that being said, Ashley and I couldn't pass up a chance to shoot at such an awesome location. For this look, I started with some of my favorite pants. I mean, velvet and brocade? Oh, be still my heart... I paired the pants with an oversized linen poncho to create a flowing silhouette. And finally, to complete the outfit, I added some black ankle boots and my black Bayswater bag.

Here's another of the looks I styled for Teen Vogue's prom edition earlier this year. For this one, I really played up the whole ice queen dynamic of the dress, with its beautiful white lace and intricate crystal detailing. I paired the dress with a faux fur, pastel pink vest and a silver headband to incorporate more texture, all while playing up the ice-like effect. This look is one of my favorites because of the color palette. The white, silver, and pastel pink really complement each other and pull the look together.

A Stylish Engagement: Addi & Adam

I recently had the incredibly fun opportunity of teaming up with Ashley Kickliter to style one of her engagement shoots. Addi and Adam, being the beautiful duo that they are, made my job exceptionally easy. Even though, at one point, we were literally being chased by the rain, the photos could not have turned out any better.

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.
