Hello! I styled my look around this metallic circle skirt. This skirt has been my go-to skirt this summer when trying to figure out what to wear. The versatile silver-y shade allows me to pair it with essentially any color and/or print. Additionally, I cannot resist the flattering, skater shape of the skirt. For a simple look, I threw on a basic printed tee. I emphasized the metallic color of the skirt with basic silver sandals. Red lipstick, a messy top bun and white sunglasses completed the look.

Fall 2014 Wishlist

Fall 2014 Wishlist

Hello! It's crazy to think that it's almost August and that fall is slowly encroaching on us. Which means lots of back to school shopping! Today, I whipped up my fall 2014 wishlist.

1. Black high-waisted jeans. Such a versatile piece that can be styled so many different ways.
2. Printed dresses. Ideal for layering on chilly fall days or pairing with simple boots on warmer days.
3. Neutral crossbody bag. Grab this bag to hold your cell phone and keys for a night on the town.
4. Dark statement sunglasses. Add an instant dose of style to your look.
5. Classic tote bag. Perfect for toting books to class.
6. Deep shade of lipstick. One of my favorite things about fall is the return of deep lipstick shades. Hello burgundys and deep reds!
7. Oversized sweater in a fall tone. Perfect for throwing on over a breezy dress or with simple leggings and boots.
8. Neutral ankle boots. The perfect shoes for so many different looks!
9. Gold statement necklace. You can never go wrong with a gold statement necklace.
10. Cut-out boots. I've been lusting after a pair for a while now and I'm determined to add a pair to my fall wardrobe!

What are on your wishlists this fall?

Hello! These are a few more photos from my shoot on Tuesday with Nicholas Von Thrower. Again, the photos turned out incredible and I am extremely grateful that he wanted to take them. Nicholas is definitely an up-and-coming Richmond photographer to watch out for. 

We shot the photos along the river at Texas Beach. Whenever I go to the river here in Richmond, I tend to either go to Belle Isle or Pony Pasture. Before Tuesday, I had actually never been to Texas Beach. But the second we started walking on the Texas Beach trail to the river, I instantly fell for Texas Beach. It is incredibly gorgeous and a lot quieter/calmer than Belle Isle. This will definitely be the spot that I head for on my next river excursion. 

For the photos, I slipped on my black one-piece. I'm usually more of a bikini girl but the low back and plunging neckline of this swimsuit are too flattering to resist. Of course, I love the simple black color and basic style. This swimsuit has actually been in rotation for several summers now but I love it too much to give it up. Luckily, I haven't outgrown it!

I styled the swimsuit with a black circle skirt for a cute, retro look. Tortoiseshell round sunglasses and a pile of rings completed the simple, river look. 

A big thanks to Nicholas Von Thrower for taking these photos! Be sure to check him out on Instagram @fireballwhiskeyprince
