I am SO excited to share that I was selected to be featured in OC Style Report‘s “Blogger Series”. They hand selected ten bloggers (8 from OC, 1 from LA and me from SD) to be featured and I am beyond honored to have been included! Each blogger was paired with a local boutique and jewelry designer to showcase their new fall arrivals. I was thrilled to be paired with my FAVE local clothing store, Swirl Boutique here in Encinitas (they also have a shop in San Clemente…my birthplace)! As you guys have probably already figured out…half of my wardrobe is probably from Swirl!

Floral Cutouts

The OCSR ladies graciously offered to come down to my place for the shoot. And they even brought the fabulous Dee from Swell Beauty to do my hair & makeup for the day. Let me just tell you….a girl could get used to this treatment! These pics are just one of the looks we shot but it ended up being my favorite. As soon as I put this dress on, I immediately felt like I was channeling Stevie Nicks. And adding the choker just MADE the look! I hope I don’t sound like a broken record, but I just have to say again out loud how grateful I am for the amazing opportunities this blog has brought my way.  I honestly had such a fun day with an amazing (and may I add…gorgeous) group of women. Thank you OCSR for making me feel like a super star for the day!

    Funny you should say Stevie Nicks. That’s exactly what I thought the first time I scrolled thru the pics. Then I went back and actually read what you wrote. My mom was in adored Stevie when I was little. My mom had her old records (yes my mom collects vinyl) and I would look at the covers & think this woman is a hippie. Anyway, you’re doing a great job of channeling her. You look fantastic! I love it.
