Checkered Midi

 Before I get into the fashion of this post, I have to rant about the fact that I FINALLY got to work with Rachel Davis and her makeup artist Haley Marie! I have been obsessed with Rachel Davis (instagram obsessed that is), for months now and was so happy when she agreed to shoot with me. If you are in the Seattle area and in need of a photographer for absolutely ANYTHING, she is your girl. Photography is not her only talent, she also styles many of her shoots! She is truly amazing. As for Haley...let's just say after getting my makeup done by her I am constantly watching youtube makeup tutorials trying to figure out just how she does it. I feel so lucky that I got to work with this power duo and I am sure you will all see me featuring much more of their work in the future!

 

Midi skirts. The new best way to conduct an outfit that can truly be transformed into anything; professional, sexy, sporty (can even be paired with sneakers), or a simple chic look. If you don't already own a midi tube skirt, they are a must have. So just for you, I linked a couple of my favs below.

Another trend I have been dying over is this whole knotted shirt or sweater thing! I swear I have incorporated it into my outfit almost every day lately. Especially knotting a top over a dress to make it more of a spring look while the weather is still a little cooler. (I posted a picture on my Instagram a while back in an Urban Outfitters dressing room if you want an example, and I'm sure a blog post with that style is coming soon!)

PS, am I the only one suddenly under the weather? I swear I cannot fight the cold and stuffiness...any remedies you guys have would be so helpful!! Β 

Have a lovely Wednesday loves Β
