It’s been a long winter, friends. Like, really, really long. I love snow more than most people, but I’ve been finding myself longing for the fresh greenery and colors of slightly warmer months. What is life without flowers, anyway? (Yet another reason Monsieur Monet and I would have gotten along just fine.)
The point is, winters that seem to stretch on forever are hard on a girl who craves color.
So when my sweet friend Ashlea invited me to a champagne, navy, and gold editorial she was organizing in the middle of our dreary Wisconsin March, I said ‘YES PLEASE!’ (You might remember Ashlea from our Emerald Session at the Capitol— she’s the lovely soul with those incredible eyes.) Autumn and I drove up to Steven’s Point to spend the day with her and a great vendor team, and we of course didn’t mind the excuse to jam out to Reputation on loop for the drive. Not that we ever need an excuse. #realtalk
To make my heart even happier, Harley and Anna are a real couple celebrating their one year anniversary. Between these two and that dreamy sunshine we were blessed with, I’m not sure which glowed brighter. (Pretty sure it was these two.) Here are a few of my absolute favorite images from our time together to inspire your love of a champagne and gold-infused color palette!
