Embracing Simplicity

IMG_6784 IMG_6786

Well, undeniably, this would count as one of my more simple ensembles. With the hustle and bustle of my life right now, I am finding myself having to opt for outfits more on the simple side at times. Even if I'm dressing for a casual occasion, I feel like little nods to my love for vintage are in order- in this case, polka dots. However, I am very much looking forward to putting on a dress for next week's post ;) I do apologize for not posting last Wednesday! This has been one of the busiest weeks I've had in a super long time- my photography business is taking off lately, and balancing life as a student, photographer, blogger, and working my other job has been crazy and lovely all at the same time. 

I love this top from YSTEER because it's simple, but still dressy. Plus it's super comfortable, so you can't beat that! I would imagine this top being pretty nice in the Summer as well.

I made a little mistake two weeks back- so sorry, Dollies! The coupon code for Joules Jewels hadn't been activated yet, so if anyone tried to use that, you can blame it on me! The code is active now, so don't forget to take a look at the shop and use this lovely code "IN2WOODS" for 15% off when you spend $30 or more.

Autumn Haze

Ahh, the time change- inevitably this little, semi-annual musical chairs charade leaves us desperately trying to capture images before the light's gone. Despite the frustrations of time change, I can't complain about shooting during golden hour. It is, after all, the best time of day to shoot pictures, so I had better not complain ;)

I have fallen in love with this dress from Joules Jewels Vintage. I think sometimes I manage to fall into a rut where I will continually wear the same style of dress over and over again. But this little frock is so fun and unique! I feel like it came straight from a designer's 2014 Fall collection, but it's really vintage! I had a fantastic transaction experience with this Etsy shop, and do highly reccomend checking it out. Joules Jewels is also offering a 15% off discount code to Into the Woods readers when you spend $30 or more. If you would like to take advantage of this offer, use the code "IN2WOODS" at the check out  :)

Mermaid Style

I can't tell you how excited I am to be bringing this post to you girls today! This has been a project long in the making, so finally seeing everything come together has been an absolute blast. I wanted to create a costume look this week, and what better than a mermaid? I don't think there is one missy here who can say they never pretended to be a mermaid when she was a little one :)

Make sure to watch the video at the end of this post to find out how I created this modern mermaid look, and how to take it to the next level for a more fantasy style costume!
