My Trip to Los Angeles for the #havefunphotoshoot with Shop Bando!

I am not a model.

The pictures I take for this blog with @hello_miss_lovely are for self expression, because I enjoy creating outfits and most importantly, IT’S FUN! So when Shop Bando emailed me saying they wanted to fly me out to L.A. for a photo shoot, you could say I had a panic attack.

Before I left for L.A., I had a lot of arrangements to make: booking plane tickets and car rental; outfit planning with Autumn; PTO for work…I talked with Bando girl gang, Kelly, on the phone about expectations and she made me feel right at home!

Keep in mind this was my FIRST time visiting the state of California as well as flying without my husband. I was a nervous wreck but also completely excited that I was picked for this opportunity.

From the minute I touched down in L.A. til the minute we flew back home, every experience I had in Cali was life changing and I am so happy that I got to enjoy it all with Autumn. Literally, there are no words to explain how grateful I am for this opportunity. It’s definitely going down as one of my favorite moments of ALL TIME.

Thank you, Bando, for showing this Mississippi gal that all my hard work doesn’t go unnoticed. I am forever grateful.

Check out the trip highlights below as well as the Ban.do email that was sent out introducing Autumn and I. Follow the #havefunphotoshoot hashtag on instagram and sign up for Ban.do emails so you don’t miss all the cute stuff thats coming out soon!

Seaside Crew Life + Kaylyn Weir Collaboration

I had the absolute honor this past week to collaborate with Ansley, the owner of the Instagram account @seasidecrewlife. If you don’t know what Seaside is, it’s a small coastal town off of the panhandle of Florida with the cutest pastel colored houses straight out of a beach dream! Ansley fell in love with Seaside as a little girl and grew a strong connection to it over time, thus creating the instagram account inspired by her many memories and trips made here!

Ansley reached out to me and asked me to take over her account for a day, showing what I love to do around this town (I’m only 5 minutes from it!) My amazing friend, Autumn Beury of Hello Miss Lovely photography, took these awesome photos that couldn’t be more ME! for the occasion and we had a blast. So blessed to have these two in my life!

Thank you to Ansley and Autumn for allowing me to express myself through your work and platforms.
