We packed up suitcases of clothing and journeyed towards Marfa. I had the pleasure of bringing a bunch of goodies from Isabella Rose Taylor  and from Apricot Lane with me to shoot. Unfortunately our bohemian-themed photoshoot was cut short by a car crash on the third day. Everyone came out relatively unscathed but the mood to shoot more carefree shots under the Texan sun was ruined. Only three outfit sets out of the planned six were captured.

I still had a great time amidst all of the chaos: the most perfect Texan sunsets that took my breath away, the mind-numbingly good made-from-scratch Mexican food, the laughter and conversations with my travel companions, and just a sense of peace when staring out into the rolling hills of green every morning.

I cannot wait to go back and to plan another photoshoot trip with these same people. The companion makes the trip.

A few snaps of our road trip to Marfa, part 1. Some of the best photoshoots often happen last-minute and with some elbow grease. We really just packed for one bohemian shoot (more on that shoot in part 2 of Marfa), but decided that the infamous Prada Marfa location necessitated a totally different shoot of its own. What to do? Thrift stores to the rescue! The entire two outfits for the "bride" and "groom" cost a total of $27 (from the bow tie, to tux/dress, to hat, to both pairs of shoes) at a thrift store. I modified the dress (see before versus after) using safety pins and one snip of the scissors. It was definitely a Project Runway sort of moment for me to see Meghan don my "creation"! I also cannot believe how good Cameron looked in what appears to be a little boy's full-length tux...a bit Gwen Stefani, no? Be sure to follow me on Instagram for more behind-the-scenes of my photoshoots! 
A lot happened on this trip (more on that later) and I think I left a little part of my heart back in Alpine/Marfa, Texas...

OUTFIT: TOUCH OF BLUSH

It's my last week at my law firm summer internship and I am studying for the Patent Bar. My life cannot be more hectic. I need an outfit that's both simple yet tough for play time on the weekends. Is the outfit a bit risque? Maybe...

Life is too short for safe outfits and risk-averse decisions.
