Happy Friday lovely readers. The Coast to Coast Street Style Series is back, and this time we’re thrilled to collaborate with one of our favorite brands: Free People! Johnnalynn, Jessica and I took on the challenge of styling our favorite maxi dresses with an ethereal theme in mind. Inspired by this theme, I immediately darted towards this gorgeous crochet dress. Everything about it exudes ethereal and romance to me. I absolutely love the crochet around the midriff area. It definitely adds a hint of sexiness but in a sweet and classy way.

We shot this look at two locations because, well I’ll let the picture below lead you into the story, hehe.

Apparently our presence confused the duckies in the lake. They thought we were going to feed them so they came up from the bottom of the lake and started to follow us as we were taking photos. Two of them wanted to make a cameo, so I took a seat on the rail and snapped a photo with them.

As this went on, and honestly it was no more than 15 minutes, more and more duckies were coming up from the lake and followed us. They had these sad puppy eyes, eventually we couldn’t bear it anymore so we decided to head home to finish the shoot. The sun was just setting by that time  which made the photos so ethereal looking.
