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.

A girl cannot have too many maxi dresses! I’ve been holding on to this set of photos since I’ve been posting quite a few dresses, but I’m feeling blue today so the timing seems right. This maxi dress was shot a few months ago when we took our parents to see Hearst Castle. I love the back detailing and how vibrant it is. Makes me crave for more warm sunny days so I can wear this dress again! Have a wonderful weekend and thank you for stopping by!

Hello everyone. This year I got the ultimate birthday gift from my husband who handpicked this gorgeous purple maxi dress for me, knowing I have been searching for one. His exact words when describing this dress were regal, red carpet and magical and I can’t agree more! I feel like a princess in it. And while I may not be going to a red carpet event anytime soon, I will certainly wear this beautiful dress to a special event (make it 10 special events!) in the future. =)

Since we were in LA the week of my birthday, we decided to shoot this dress at one of the locations on my bucket list — The Urban Light! As Murphy’s Law would have it, we came at a time when this place was completely packed. There were at least fifteen other people taking photos in the area. And there was even a group of college students picnicking right in the middle, which I thought was pretty cool. Although it was challenging, we hustled our way and got a few great shots for you guys. I hope you like them! Thank you so much for reading.
