Earlier this week the amazing photographer I work with, Angie Garcia, and I shot at the most darling, whimsical little vintage book store ever…the Backdoor Book Shop in downtown Fort Worth. It was hard to keep myself from shopping, but I loved getting to shoot in a place that holds so many stories, both in the thousands of books and editions we were surrounded by and the people who once owned them. There’s something so magical about a book that’s been read before. From the dog-eared pages to the wear and tear of the binds, you get a feel of how long each book has been around. Being in such an amazing space reminded me of how much I used to LOVE reading books. Ever since I started blogging, I have’t had much free time for it (or, rather, I haven’t made much free time for it), but this little adventure reminded me that I need to pick up this old pastime of mine. But, I digress, let’s get back to the actual purpose of this library photoshoot which was to show you one of my favorite ways to style a sweater dress…with jeans! Click through to get the full scoop and see all of the shots we got from our vintage book store photoshoot.

 

PS -I would LOVE your suggestions on books I should read!? Answer in the comments below!

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner (and with all of the craziness happening in the world today), I thought it would be the perfect time to share this playful and colorful outfit that shares a message from a song by one of my favorite bands…”all you need is love.” Growing up, my dad was always a fan of The Beatles, but it wasn’t until recent years that I grew such a love and appreciation for the ground-breaking, record-setting band. Nowadays, I have their songs on repeat during long drives or for when I’m cleaning the house and I can’t get enough!!
