floral top and lace shorts

Well hello there!!!!!! 
Been taking a non-planned hiatus from the blog due to body-image issues and just absolute life craziness. My photography business has been growing like crazy and it has been amazing. I am constantly busy shooting, editing, blogging and putting myself out there for more work. 
Also not feeling comfortable in my clothes and living in 2 cities has made fashion blogging hard..... there are really a million excuses and none of them valid. When i started this blog and had a year of blogging daily I somehow made THAT work amongst the craziness but apparently i just haven't been feeling it lately. 
Well a few weeks ago I met up with my friend Kristin (of that gorgeous blog Everythings Always Sunny) about a project she is starting.... I will be taking lovely photos of her pretty often and that is pretty rad. We headed to Down to Earth, a local fashion/home decor store in Grand Haven and got to styling. I put together this gorgeous floral top and lace shorts along with a bunch of bracelets, Kristins shoes and voila! Outfit! 
I actually felt really good in this outfit. The top is super flattering on my current figure and I have been craving a pair of lace shorts, I decided to take these babies home with me. 
Super thanks to Kristin for always being a babe and for taking these photos!
