I recently hopped on a plane with Darren and adventured through Colorado for a week. We started out in Denver, then visited Boulder, and ended with a few days in Estes Park. Each time I visit Denver, I just want to pack my bags and move there! This particular shoot was during one of our drives through the ever-so-beautiful Rocky Mountain National Park.


Our first stop was at this scenic creek overlooking a meadow with a mountainous backdrop! So there I am, taking in those incredible views of the Rocky Mountains while wearing my new favorite matching top & bottoms by Minkpink. I've noticed that my color of the summer is mustard yellow - I just love the vintage appeal it has.

Right before this next shot, my sunglasses fell in the water, so I had to get in and fetch them. The water felt amazing! The weather at the Rocky Mountains during summer is PERFECT, because it's in the 70s during the day and doesn't really go below the 50s at night. This makes it so nice while exploring during all hours of the day - because last time we visited we froze! ::)


I can't wait to share more of our imagery from our adventure through Colorado! In the meantime, catch some sneak peeks on my Instagram. I'll be sharing more of my favorite summer looks and interesting locations you should visit on your next trip to Colorado.

This series of photos is from one of our recent adventures up to Big Sur for a few days! On the way up, I stopped by my favorite boutique Blackwater in San Luis Obispo and picked up the magic you see me wearing in these images. I couldn't wait to wear those black & white face gems with that beautiful golden dress - the way those gems matched the embroidered detailing on the sleeves was just too good to be true.

During our golden hour drive up and down the coast of Big Sur, we passed by fields of yellow flowers lining the coast - I mean hello, COLORS! Just what I needed for that golden get up ::) This is the perfect time to go to Big Sur if you have it on your list - escape the heat, and enjoy that cool breeze, coastal drive, and forest life! It's magical up there I tell you. Check the links for what I'm wearing below!
