3 Year Dating Anniversary Photos + James Perse LBD Review

test

^^That face! It melts my heart

Get ready for a picture heavy post! A few weeks ago boyfriend and I met with the amazingly talented Lydia Hudgens to shoot some photos. If you can believe it, he and I have never had professional pictures done in the 3+ years we have known each other. He detests being in front of the camera and is always busy shooting photos for ThePearShape! I absolutely love how these turned out and how comfortable Lydia helped him feel.

My favorite part about these particular pictures is that they catch us in our natural state. They aren’t too posed or contrived, but show us touching and laughing and kissing, much how we are on a regular day.

We opted for neutral color pallets to keep the emphasis on us. Boyfriend is wearing J.Crew jeans, Burberry watch, and a Banana Republic shirt.

I opted for my new favorite LBD: the James Perse ruched v-neck dress and an old pair of snakeskin heels found at Nordstrom. Accentuated with YSL lipstick and Alexis Bittar earrings gifted by boyfriend for my birthday. I didn’t want to wear Spanx or control anything in these photos, but really reflect how we naturally look. This dress did an amazing job of hiding my imperfections (read: arms and thighs) and accentuating my curves. I couldn’t have felt more comfortable.

Thank you so much to Lydia for the amazing photos and stay tuned for the second half of the set coming at you tomorrow!

On A Personal Note: A Memorial Day Birthday

IMG_7446-2

Yesterday was boyfriend’s 25th birthday. We spent the day walking around his favorite parts of the city, eating his favorite food and enjoying the amazingly gorgeous weather we experienced in San Francisco. Saturday we took a few friends and drove out to Napa, did some wine tasting and walked around the adorable downtown area. To say the least, it was a perfect weekend. We feel so fortunate to have been able to be together on such an important birthday, and for our wonderful, healthy, joy filled lives.

Notice my really hot farmers tan? Chic, I know. In all seriousness, I don’t think i’ve been complimented on an outfit more than I was wearing this one in a long time. For some reason, cream on cream works for this girl!

Plus, this giraffe print skirt added the perfect amount of whimsy to a date night with my man.

Have an amazing Tuesday lovebugs!

Officially 23!

J.Crew Factory blouse, Sweet & Spark necklace, Target belt, Banana Republic Jeans, Nordstrom Rack sandals, Prada sunglasses

I’m officially 23! Whoa! This past Saturday was my birthday and all I wanted this year was to be very low key with my boyfriend. We spent the weekend eating amazing food, walking around parts of the city we had never seen, visiting the Fort Mason famers market and meeting friends at Off the Grid. I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend, better weather, or a more wonderful city to spend it in.

I wore some variation of this outfit for the majority of the weekend as it was in the low 80’s most of Friday and Saturday. I’m getting more and more comfortable with pegged jeans and find them to be so versatile for Spring/Summer.

Lastly, this lipstick i’m wearing is my new obsession from NARS. The prettiest hot pink color.

Thank you all for your kind birthday wishes and for making me feel even more special!
