C/O Free People Dress | C/O Deb Shops Sweater (Similar HERE)

Lots of photos today!  So excited to share with you the final two sets of my maternity photoshoot with Olivia Richards Photography. If you missed the first set, you can view it here. I honestly don’t have a favorite set. I love them all! The first set of photos was shot on the hills of San Jose. For this shoot I’m wearing a gorgeous lace dress from Free People. I had my eyes on it for awhile now so when we decided to shoot here I knew it would be the perfect dress for the occasion. For your reference, I’m wearing an XS and I didn’t need to hem up the dress at all. Isn’t it so beautiful and ethereal?

The second shoot was taken in our home sweet home. These tiny shoes bring tears of joy to my eyes. I can’t believe how blessed we are to become parents soon. Looking at my baby clothes makes me imagine all sorts of things about him. We’re so excited to meet him and it’s just less than 8 weeks away!

It’s Friday, yay! What are your weekend plans? I’ve been holding on to this set for a little while now so I’m bursting with excitement sharing with you today! This is Johnnalynn’s, Jess and my second Coast-to-Coast Street Style Series collaboration with Free People, and we’re all about these pretty floral bohemian dresses. This is by far one of my favorite dresses of the series. It’s so unique compared to everything else I own. There is an easy yet sexy vibe about that this dress. And since I’ve been loving the bohemian / gypsy-inspired style lately, this dress is perfect for that type of look.

How To Dress Bohemian Style

1. Wear It Flowy
No matter what you wear, whether it’s a maxi dress, skirt, top, or pants, keep at least one piece of your outfit flowy and a bit undone.

2. Keep It A Little Untamed
Whether it’s the hair, the clothes or the makeup there is always an element of freedom and untameness to this look. Your hair doesn’t have to be perfectly brushed or curled. Your makeup doesn’t have to be to the nines, in fact it’s best if you keep it light and natural. Keep the pumps at home because you won’t need them. Flats, sandals or better yet bare foot are perfect for this look.

3. Adorn Yourself With Accessories
Accessorizing is a huge part of this look. Wear stackable bracelets, long chain necklaces, body chains, midi rings, floppy hats or headbands to complete the boho look. The more the better, there is no such thing as over accessorizing here.

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.
