Living in San Diego has got to be a photographers dream, every corner, street, and building just sets the tone for the perfect backdrop. Case in point, last week I picked up some new pieces from my friends boutique, Avenu, in Coronado and of course I wanted to share an outfit with you! We didn’t have to walk far because right on the corner was the cutest little flower shop that provided some great color to go along with my black and white outfit. I started sharing some behind the scenes video on Snapchat while doing shoots to give you a better idea of exactly what goes down! LOL So if you’re curious what goes on be sure to follow me there too! (@vanessaballi)
Now can we talk about how adorable this dress is? The pattern alone is amazing, and you may recall last week when I told you I bought a similar pattern but different outfit, this is it! There’s nothing wrong with having more than one outfit with the same pattern right?? What I really loved about this dress though is the pom pom details on the skirt! I couldn’t stop twisting and watching the little pom poms shake! While the dress alone is great, you know I can’t leave the house without adding accessories! Let’s start at the top…I NEVER leave the house without styling my hair with VIBRANCE. I get asked all the time what I use in my hair to keep it healthy, shiny and bouncy, that’s my secret and my go to no matter what!! I’m also wearing a straw hat by Lack of Color, a black patterned choker, which I’m sure you’ve been seeing all over, very trendy, a fringe crossbody, black and rose gold watch from MVMT, black frame glasses from William Painter and strappy wedges. You can never have too much black especially when it’s so perfectly balanced with this dress.
So my girlfriends just reminded me that my birthday is in two weeks (June 1) and I’ve been so busy I totally forgot. haha So I guess now I need to figure out what to do and more importantly what to wear!!! 🙂 Stay tuned!!!
Hope you have a wonderful day and a great weekend!! XO
