Paris is Always a Good Idea

Hello Lovely,

Thanks for joining the blog on this beautiful Wednesday of a short week.  Cheers to that!

If you can’t tell based on everything logo and image-wise on my website and via my emails, I am *obsessed* with Audrey Hepburn.  I truly wish there was more Hepburn and less Kardashian in our world, but I digress...  

One of my favorite lines by Audrey is “Paris is always a good idea.”  Well, I haven’t been yet unless sitting for 5 hours in the Paris airport while en route to Rome counts as being in Paris?  My husband tells me it counts, but I beg to differ.  One simply cannot say she has been to Paris unless she has seen La Tour Eiffel whilst eating a baguette with spring flowers in bloom (yep, that is exactly how I envision my first trip to France). 

Even though I haven’t been there yet, I felt inspired to do a French styled shoot with the one and only, Alex Lasota.  While planning my outfit I knew I needed stripes and a bold red lip, everything else built off from there!  I added a whimsical silk scarf that happens to be covered with beautiful shoes (tied around my neck, a lá Audrey herself), acetate over-sized sunglasses, high-waisted black jeans, and mint-colored accessories.  Again, thank you to Sarah Pounds of Sparkles with Sarah for letting me borrow the gorgeous Chloe and Isabel jewelry.  Seriously I think I need all these pieces, like right now.  All of the outfit details are below the image gallery, so keep reading!

Okay okay, there isn’t really a French area to take pictures in Tri-Cities, but the Parkade in Richland does have Frost Me Sweet and if that isn’t reason enough to head there, I don’t know what is.  UMMM hello red velvet cupcakes!  Plus on the opposite end of the Parkade is the old Players theater, and thankfully the sun was playing in our favor the evening we shot. 

Please enjoy the pics and contact Alex for your special event photography needs, she works wonders.
