If you are a regular visitor to our site, you will know about my ridiculous obsession with dresses. What’s a girl to do?! But I’m pretty sure this obsession of mine is how the awesome owner of the online boutique store ShopBouchique.com discovered we both had very similar style and interests! 😉 I was so excited when she contacted us to collaborate on a fun fashion project together. Since she provided us with the cutest dress, we just had to find a fitting location and add some fun elements…hope you enjoy what we came up with!
I am wearing a dress appropriately called The Way We Were Dress. I want to share the description of the dress from the site because I could not have said it any better how I felt the first time I slipped this dress on and gave it a twirl in front of the mirror.
“This is how dresses used to be made: beautiful, feminine and with sleeves! No need for a cardi or jacket. Just accessories if you choose to do so, but this dress is gorgeous with or without it. It comes in a beautiful textured fabric and lined in soft satin.”
We were fortunate enough to have the bouquets created by the talented people at Lucky Farms Flowers. =)
On a side note, darn my nappy hair!! I was having a bad hair day. ughs.
They did such a wonderful job on these bouquets, love love love! We added our home-made pinwheels for a twist of vintage.
We found a pretty country road a week ago and thought it would make a nice spot for a shoot. Once we decided we were going to use a bicycle, we were sold on the location.
EEEks, not much room for a bike ride. I was quite nervous about how close the cars were…
…but every time a car zoomed by it made for a nice wind affect.
Since it wasn’t all that windy out, we brought out balloons for some fun shots!
When making clothing suggestions to our clients, we always try to emphasize flowy dresses. I really liked this dress because as you can see, it allowed me lots of movement.
We had fun with this set! A slight gust of wind was moving the balloons around so Ty just snapped away, finding any pockets he could to capture me in.
UP, UP AND AWAY!

Wardrobe: I want to thank Bouchique for this super comfy and beautiful dress. Please check out her site, you will not be disappointed! I love many of the shoes as well but my itty bitty feet will never fit them (size 4!!).
Props: Thanks goes out to our good friend Judy for letting us use her vintage bicycle. And for the lovely bouquets that fill my room with their wonderful scent, thank you Lucky Farms Flowers.
Photographer: Thank you Babe for always making me look less “geeky” and more “pretty” xoxo
