To get our creative momentum going Cailin and I often go out on Saturdays to shoot some photos. We have now become accustomed to calling these adventures, “Saturday Shoot Days.” At times we’ll have a look or aesthetic in mind, but this time we just chose a location and worked off of that. If you live near or in Upstate NY, going to an apple orchard every fall is basically a right of passage. It might be basic, but come on… who doesn’t like fresh apples off the tree, some cider and of course some apple cider doughnuts?! So off we went to a local orchard to take some photos.
Although it is true that some of your clothes have to be tucked away for winter, not all of your floral prints do! It’s really simple to keep them going all year long if you just switch up the styling. Cailin winterized her sunflower hoodie by simply pairing it with a matching beanie, black jeans and some gray checkered Vans. Oh, and you can’t forget her fly Champion fanny pack!
I love a fun skater dress. The best part about them is they flatter just about every body type and they’re super comfortable. This dress also has some cool details like ruching on the sleeves, which give it a vintage vibe that I’m all about. I wore this one on my birthday, back in June (apologies, Cai and I are playing some serious catch up on here haha), because I like to dress up a bit every year on my bday.
Cailin and I have always wanted to do a carnival shoot after seeing some of the amazing shots other photographers get there. Luckily a carnival makes a stop two minutes from where we live every summer. I’d like to say that we were super on top of our goal to have a carnival shoot, but we ended up being super busy and almost forgot about it. We ended up going on the second to last day that it was open and 30min. before it closed, which in hindsight was probably a good decision because the crowds were gone.
When celebrating a patriotic holiday it’s always time to break out the red, white and blue. Normally, Cailin and I do the stereotypical trip to a lake for Memorial Day, but this time we just did a relaxing at-home meal, since our summer is packed with trips and freelance gigs. In turn, I kept it casual with a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans and this red bandanna tank from my Mom’s 90s closet. I finished the look with a pair of lace-up espadrilles.
Collared tees are such a simple way to get both a polished and casual look perfect for summer. I got this one thrifting, as usual, but it’s really Mossimo, which was a brand that you normally found at Target. However, if I remember correctly Target has since dropped the brand.
Y’all know I love thrifting and finding great vintage pieces. I found this amazing 40s style dress on my last thrifting adventure and it has become one of my favorite vintage purchases. It has so many cute details and is a great representation of how Dior’s “New Look” trickled down into casual ready-to-wear during the late 1940s.
There is nothing more simple, easy and cute to throw on than a swing dress when the weather starts getting warmer. I found this one at Burke’s Outlet on our recent trip to visit family in New Mexico. Burke’s Outlet is pretty similar to a T.J. Maxx or Marshalls, but it is even better because it is named after us!
As many of you know, I own a give back clothing brand (Freely Clothing) and Cailin has a sports Youtube channel (Outboxed Sports)! Our amazingly cool friend recently started an Instagram page (baW) that showcases inspiring women and how they’re killin’ it in their respective fields. We were honored when she asked us to do a short interview for their Women Crush Wednesday feature, so we commemorated the event by getting some new headshots and product photos.
