Our first post and photoshoot! Since my grandmother recently passed away, and my family is working to put her house on the market, Chris and I decided to do our first shoot in my grandparents’ backyard. It was one of my favorite places when I was growing up – exploring around the hills with all the flowers and wild berries.
My outfit was very inspired by my Grandma as well…She gave me the vintage sequin jacket a while back. It used to be her sister’s, who I was also close to, and is also no longer with us. The purse used to be Grandma’s. One necklace was a gift and one I repurposed from a few vintage jewelry items that were no longer functional.
The vintage cowboy boots are my favorite remnant of my “boho chic” semester while I was in fashion school. My grandmother used to go on and on, telling me how much she loved Texas, and how polite the young men are out there. She kept telling me that I should take a few trips out there and find myself a nice polite husband. When I showed her my vintage boots that I found, she insisted that I wear them frequently, in the hopes that I would find a nice Texan transplant out here in California. I don’t think it was the boots, but oddly enough, my wonderful husband is a very polite Texan. 🙂
