down by the bay





There is a few moments in life that trump all the others, and one of those is times spent with girl friends. I am so blessed by all the amazing women in my life, and love spending time with each and every one of them. My gorgeous friend Danielle came to visit for Spring Break. Her and I spent a lot of my teenage years packing garbage bags full of clothes into my car and doing funny photo shoots around town, eating too much candy and laughing non stop. Of course when she came home we had to get together to relive the moments of our youth. As years past and life changes, girls grow up and instead of our crazy notorious picture sessions, we decided to go a bit more classy and serious (but not too serious!) for these ones. Whats your favorite thing to do with your gal pals?

The weather is gorgeous outside today (unlike yesterday!) and I have decided to go jogging (yes you read that right, jogging) and feed the birds. What better way to spend a Tuesday afternoon right? Have a good one, love bugs! x

  1. Your tights are so cute! It's nice to have a friend to take pictures with! Me and my best friend usually go shopping together.

  2. Those tights are the bomb, just saying. And your friend is so fashionable as well, I'm definitely diggng her boots. :)

    I always go on photo adventures when I hang out with my friend Kirsten. We try to find all the most random, but gorgeous, areas in NJ...mostly abandoned or haunted places!

  3. Love your tights!! How lovely to catch up with an old friend :) xx

  4. Great photos! Looks like you and your friend had a lot of fun! I am in love with your tights.

    I love going on photo adventures with my best girls but, I think my favorite thing to do with friends is just grab a coffee, tea or wine and just chat for hours.

  5. Wow you both look so beautiful!! When I was in London I got to visit my best friend since forever and it was so perfect to catch up with her. I'm glad you got to do the same!

    This is such a good outfit - your sweater! Your velvet skirt! My oh my.


  18. I love that you had someone that you could do that with :) Sounds like great times. And I love the photos. Your tights are so so cute. As is her dress. It's really awesome that you guys ended up wearing very monochromatic outfits.
