For me, a really fun aspect of blogging has been getting to experience new things. This photoshoot took place at a hotel I had never been to (Hotel Eleven) by a photographer that I had never worked with before (Devin Travis of Wayfarer Photography). He had organized the shoot to be at the hotel and I was so excited! New restaurants, hotels, and bars seem to always be opening in Austin, and this hotel had only been open a few months, so it was fun to get to check it out. The architecture was so unique and I loved this little cafe that you walk into as soon as you step in the door. It gave it such a homey feel right away. We thought the darker tones of the room would be a nice setting for this bright dress.
As soon as I saw this dress I knew I was going to get it. For anyone who has been following my blog for a while, you know that 1. I love off the shoulder, 2. I love ruffles, and 3. I love dresses. When I first started blogging, I was always wearing jeans, even into the summer, but over time I’ve evolved into a major dress lover. There’s just something so easy about throwing on any one piece outfit, and dresses automatically make you look like you’re trying. One thing that drew my to this particular dress, on top of the obvious reasons I listed, was the bright color. I own a lot of blue and pink, so I was excited to try something so new and fun. I don’t think I’ve ever owned a dress this color (I have some yellow, but this is chartreuse). It was just the perfect summer color!
Thanks for reading! I hope y’all had a great weekend 🙂
