Sunshine shining

Be warned: photo heavy post!

Stephanie and i joined forces again and had such an amazing time driving to the 'burbs last weekend on a beautiful sunday, perfect for an outdoor photo shoot. Can you believe this gorgeous place is just a 30 minute drive from the city? The day would not have been complete without our mascot, Chloe the teacup poodle (Steph's dog).











Dress (actually a baby doll nightgown) - Vintage (thanks mom!)
Belt - Vintage
Shoes - Nine West
Hat - Brixton
Sunnies - Ray Ban

You look so sweet and pretty! The belt and shoes really make it look un-lingerie, you know what i mean? The effect you did on the first shot is so cool, it's like you kinda just pop out of nowhere.
