As a blogger, I always have my eyes open for somewhere unique to photograph. With fashion photography, the backdrop is often just as important as the clothes that you are wearing. They play off one another to make a truly stunning shoot, making the clothes that much more appealing.
This abandoned house is right down the road from my house and I have had my eye on it for a while now. I knew that it needed a special outfit to play off the beauty of the weathered wood. I just needed to find that outfit. My problems were solved with my latest visit to Francesca’s.
I rarely shop straight from the mannequins because I try to develop mine own style. It is a way for me to express myself and showcase my creativity. There was something about this dress and kimono paired together that really caught me eye. I loved the way the flowiness of each item played off one another and how the hues of blue really complemented each other.
Not only did each piece compliment each other, but I knew that they would compliment other things in my wardrobe as well. The lace of the kimono is beautiful and delicate and will go with so many of my dresses and tunics. The dress will be cute paired with leggings, boots and a big, chunky sweater this Fall and Winter. Since both pieces are navy, they will work well with any season!
For my accessories, I went with some great neutral pieces from Stella & Dot. My layering necklaces are from the Engravables collection. The bar necklace is engraved with the date of my wedding and the circle necklace is engraved with my initials. My spike bracelet is also Stella & Dot and is called the Renegade. It is also available in silver and rose gold. The necklace is from Francesca’s and I literally bought that straight off the mannequin as well! My bangle was a gift from a sweet friend and I love how well the navy flower matched my dress.
My booties are from Just Fab. They have been killing it these season with their boots and booties! I have seen at least five other pairs that I want for the colder months ahead and they are all at great price points! They even have a great selection of wider calf boots!

These pieces are definitely going to be on repeat in the coming months. They are so versatile and fit my boho-loving style perfectly!
