Would you believe me if I told you that the location we shot at was literally right next to a basketball court? I seldom use the word 'literally', so you know that I'm serious. Perspective is a funny thing; changing your viewpoint can really turn something odd into something rather beautiful. I feel like it's always important to keep an open mind and open eyes because you never know what beautiful aspect of life and the world that you might miss. 

If you've been following me for a while, you might have noticed that I infrequently wear something girly or cute without a leather jacket or an edgy accessory. I was inspired to wear something soft, neutral, and flowy, so I went with this dusty rose dress that I got a couple years back in New York and paired it with one of my favorite cardigans from Forever 21. Between gold and silver, I feel that gold is a softer metal than silver, so I accessorized my outfit with only a simple tribal petal necklace from Charlotte Russe. 

My little brother, Brian, and I have decided to do morning pilates every day at 6am to tone up and strengthen our bodies. I was doing pilates with him last night for an hour, and he really liked it, so he suggested that we do it in the morning at 6 before he heads off to school. Did I mention that he's 13 and in middle school? Kid's got dedication. I told him that if I didn't wake up, he could pour water on me to get me out of bed. We'll see how it goes! Have a happy Friday and a lovely weekend, loves!

  2. So cute that you and your brother do pilates together! Lovely shoot hun~ You look so pretty!

    LIVE . IN .LOVE ✞


  3. How adorable is your kid brother joining you for pilates I like how the lace from the bralette peeks through your creamy billowy dress. And you're right, this is the girliest of outfit I've witnessed from your collection of edgy looks and the shoot setting is dreamy. As always, your photographer does a great job ad capturing the beauty of the model and the environment. The petal necklace is so beautiful and it is something that I can see myself wearing! Great post as always, Diane! xx :)
