It’s so weird, in Texas you can feel like hanging out by the pool one day and then have to wear your thickest coat the next. The weather is SO unpredictable, it’s insane. However, one up side to that is no one is by the pool in January no matter how warm it is (it was 80 degrees the day of this shoot), so there’s plenty of empty pool decks (like this gorgeous one at the W Hotel) to be used for photoshoot settings. This dress screams vacation to me, so I thought it would feel at home by a pool.
Have you started planning your spring and summer vacations? As soon as NYE is over, I always start longing to be on a beach. Last year, my friends and I went to Cancun and it was so much fun! That’s definitely not a trip I can take every year, but I’m still looking for something a little closer to home for this summer. One trend that I’m so glad is sticking around this spring is the off the shoulder style, and I can’t get enough of it still. This stripe off shoulder dress is absolutely perfect for me! I love how thick the material is, you can just feel the quality of the fabric, and the different sizes of the stripes are so fun! I can definitely picture myself wearing this to a dinner at some resort in Florida.
Are any of your favorite trends coming back again this year? Gingham is another favorite of mine and according to some trusted sources it’s going to be back in full swing this year! This southern girl is just giddy about that!
