So MOD



Shift Dress: Marshalls. Shoes: Sam Edelman via Belk. Crossbody: Marshalls. Sunnies: Old Navy.

The weather has been absolutely glorious in Charlotte these past couple of days. I'm loving every bit of it. Quick, easy and chic are the three words I always keep in mind when shopping for my spring/summer work wardrobe. As much as I wish I was, I'm not a morning person at all so I like be able to think of cute outfits that require minimal effort :) Which is the reason I love the shift dress so much. Super comfortable and classy for work and play. During the summer, I'm always making plans to go out and enjoy the weather after work which is why I am very fond of outfits which make the transition for fun, summer evenings. This look is the perfect combo of mod and chic. What are some of your favorite staple pieces for spring/summer?

Blush & Bliss- A Romantic Rendezvous at the Biltmore Estate

Last Sunday, I had the honor and opportunity to play creative director and stylist at a friend's engagement photo shoot. Audrina and I have only been friends for a couple of months but it's clear as day that the Lord brought us together. I'm thankful to have another friend in Christ who encourages and uplifts me, and holds me accountable. Not only is Audrina absolutely stunning on the outside, but her spirit is welcoming, genuine, warm and contagious. We sat down for brunch a couple of months ago as complete strangers and left feeling like we had been friends for years. The way the Lord brought us together is a testament to His faithfulness because at the time I had been praying for more Godly friends. We had SO many things in common including our love for food and trying new restaurants in the Charlotte area, hiking, fitness, fashion and more with our faith being at the core of it all, and it could not have been more perfect timing. 

Jonathan and Audrina got engaged a month ago. I was honored to have been apart of the big surprise. He put much thought and careful attention into the night, proposing at the same salsa dance studio they both met at months before. All of Audrina's friends and family from all over flew in to witness Jonathan getting down on one knee. That moment, was the beginning of many special moments that Audrina and Jonathan will share for a lifetime.

Sunday morning at the Biltmore Estate was absolutely magical. When Audrina asked me to play her stylist for the shoot yall know I was SO excited!! She told me of how she wanted to incorporate her wedding colors which included soft, blush pinks, and neutral tones and my mind was suddenly overloaded with ideas to really make the pictures come to life, not only with their outfits but with bringing out the love the two share. My vision: Blush & Bliss- A Romantic Rendezvous at the Biltmore Estate, and that day was just that and MORE! Aurelius photographed all of these amazing images, and yall when I say this guy is one of the most dopest creatives I've ever met I am not lyin! He is amazing and just an all around gentlemen and nice guy.You can check his work out here. It was great getting to work with him. Visitors at the Biltmore all admired Jonathan and Audrina- they were captured by the couples love and also how amazing they looked that day. Thank you Audrina for giving me the opportunity to do what I love the most. 


Hope you guys enjoy these stunning photographs!
