Hey guys! I am super excited because I recently collaborated with one of my new favorite brands Hayden Girls! This brand has super cute clothing for kids and tweens. Hayden Girls has a cool California girl vibe with beautiful fabrics and prints. Here is how I styled the pieces they sent me.
The first look was shot in New York and it was still really cold so I styled this sweatshirt with jean shorts but I wore tights under the shorts. The sweatshirt is super soft and comfortable and has a crisscross detail down the arm that made this basic very cool. The outfit looked a little edgier with the tights, boots and the cool crisscross details.

The second look I shot in the Bahamas. We travelled there for spring break and the weather was amazing. I wore the beautiful button down shirt with denim shorts as well but no tights needed in 80 degree tropical weather! The shirt was made of a beautiful novelty fabric and had a really pretty tie at the waist. I think this shirt would also look great with white jeans or even as a bathing suit coverup.

Only a few more days until Easter! My family doesn’t do anything huge on this holiday! Just a quiet day with church, candy and travel. Believe it or not, on Easter we are usually on a plane for spring break vacay! This year we are headed to the Bahamas again! Although on the plane I will not be wearing one of these looks, I will be wearing them to church and brunch with the fam! Today I am sharing my top pics for the best outfits this Easter! See below for links and descriptions.
1.) I LOVE these dresses because they are casual but still very cute! The gorgeous floral embroidery on the first dress really reminds me of spring as well as the beautiful blue color on the second dress!

Hi guys, this break I went to New York City, with my mom and my friend Caroline. It was a very gloomy day and it even rained. Even in the bad weather, I love this city so so much, I was actually born here! New York City really inspires me, not to mention it is a great place to take pictures! Keep reading to see what we did and shop my look!
For lunch went we went to Lazzaras pizza It is a hidden gem in the city and has amazing Italian food! I got pesto and pizza of course! (Should I make a NYC food diary?)
Next we went to my moms office! My parents are both designers, my dad designs for Warby Parker and my moms companies are cooper&ella and Finn & Grace. There offices are both super fun!
I also got to try bubble tea. I chose mango green tea and added chia seeds! I really liked it!
Last we walked around and went shopping!

I love styling it with cool pants and denim, but there are so many fun ways to make this color stand out! I heard this years trendy spring color is ultra violet! What do you think?

Recently I have received many direct messages, about how I edit my photos. Most of my photos are taken with my iPhone, while others are taken with my camera. My favorite editing app at the moment is SNAPSEED. Most apps just allow you to brighten the whole image, but using the brush (located in tools) snapped lets you brighten certain things. Such as your face. This is what I did in the pic below. Snapseed also allows you to saturate or un-saturate things. I use the white balance (also in tools) to change the temperature to warmer or cooler tones. And last I use tune image (in tools) to make the entire photo brighter and ambiance, which makes the subject stand out. My second favorite app is FACETUNE. I use the detail tool to make the clothes I am wearing or my hair stand out in the photo. I also use Facetune to whiten the backgrounds of my photos in my mirror shots. I do this because, all though my walls are white, the light in the room can cause the walls to look yellow. I use the app UNUM, to plan out my insta feed and see my top liked posts! Also COLORSTORY, is a super fun app to add suns or beautiful light leaks into your pictures. This is a great app for travel shots, as well as DISTRESSEDFX, which allows you to add birds and sunsets into your shots! VSCO, is a good app for filters. I like to stick to one and turn it down to about 4. And lastly AFTERLIGHT, I use Afterlight to brighten contrast and highlight my photos. They also have awesome borders you can add to your photos and light leaks as well. Those are the apps I use to edit. I don’t use every single one for every picture but they are all used. My pictures are taken by my Mom and sometimes friends or my brother if I am around them when I want a shot! I hope this helps your editing game!! XO
