Roses are Red

Hey everyone!

I’ve been gone for a while, but if you follow me on social media, you’ve seen snippets of this dress earlier this week. I celebrated my 21st birthday on Tuesday and decided to get some professional photos taken. I’ve never considered myself as a particularly photogenic person, but 21 is a big year and I wanted quality photos to remember the occasion.

I was torn as to whether I should even take photos because I couldn’t find the perfect outfit. My only criteria was that it had to be “different.” I saw this outfit on Instagram and it was love at first sight. I live in maxi skirts and dresses back in the Caribbean and the skirt caught my attention first. It was so beautifully tailored and the pattern was so unique that I even if I didn’t wear it for the shoot, I knew I had to have it. This outfit is a co-ordinated set which meant that I could wear them together or separately. 2 pieces = 3 outfits!  I wanted the outfit to be the focal point so I opted for minimal accessories. The fit was perfect and I hope I spot another set like this to add to my new collection.

Do you know where I can find any more co-ord sets? Leave suggestions in the comments below.
