I grew up going to the lake and it will always hold a special place in my heart!  Whether it’s the lake, beach or mountains, we all have a place we love to go.  I go to the lake to see my parents every year around my birthday which usually falls on Memorial Day weekend. We try to go the weekend after Memorial Day so we can skip all the crowds.  This year I took advantage of the scenery and took photos for the life-styled version of these outfits. My mom was so kind to take them and did such a great job AND we had fun doing it. Summer is definitely here and a cool…

This is a continuation of that and I will be giving you some tips on Lighting and Equipment Setup for a Clothing Flat Lay. This may require you to spend a little bit of money but the results are worth it if you want great quality photos.

Hey ladies! There is one clothing piece that I just don’t think I could live without and it’s a blazer.  I own more blazers than any other item and I can never get rid of them.  If you ever want to see all the blazers and jackets I own I would be glad to show you!!! It’s a serious problem but a problem I am not willing to fix.  I love a good blazer because I feel like it can also be the most versatile piece in your wardrobe. Today I am going to show you how I styled my new wonderful pastel striped blazer from Vici Collection. Spring time is short lived here in Memphis and it gets steaming hot super quick.  Even though…
