Summer Fades

With summer slowly fading away, we begin our transition into autumn.

Cherish the long summer days while you still can; the coziest season is coming upon us.

Get the look here.

Hello!  It’s Kelsey here again, with another post from the coast!  In case you missed my first post, you can read it here.  I recently went on a road trip down the Oregon coast with my sister and a dear friend, and we did a few photo shoots along the way!

Outfit details:  Textured Lace Dress // Gold Tattoos

Now, I adore lace in any form, and this dress is no exception.  Vintage inspired lace, a sweet braided belt, and a gorgeous scalloped hemline are all details that make this dress stand out!  It can so easily be dressed up or down, and I just adore the femininity of it!  Summer’s around the corner, and it’s the perfect piece to easily transition from day to night.

Until next time,
Kelsey, The Farmer’s Daughter

Tulle and Chambray

Nothing makes you feel like a princess quite like a tulle skirt.  Soft and feminine, with a bit of drama…it is sure to draw a bit of attention!

I decided to style this skirt over one of my favorite lace and chambray dresses, and the tulle definitely gave this dress such a fresh new look.  And when paired with a sweet pair of red flats, this outfit sure makes a statement!

I think the tulle skirt trend is just so much fun, and can definitely be dressed up or down.  Here’s to feeling like a ballerina whenever I wear it!

A Pink Celebration: The Perfect Bridesmaid Dress

Wedding season is starting full throttle! Times of celebration, love, new relationships, community, and joyous gatherings fill my heart with much gladness!

092I love being able to witness two people coming together in the most unifying manner. Knowing that life together doesn’t actually mean it will be perfect, possibly the way we dreamed or fantasied it to be. But, it will be one of the most satisfying, enjoyable and cherished events in life. 091

When you are two becoming one, you open yourself up to experiences in life that cease to exist otherwise.

So to all you future brides out there… I hope and trust that as you experience preparations, anticipation, and the busyness of it all, you’ll be reminded you are giving yourself and allowing yourself to embark on one of lifes greatest unknown adventures!
Now past the little life talk…

Weddings! Dresses! Bridesmaids! Groom! And many other aspects! The decisions seem to never end.
Flowers are one of them for many weddings!

Which color scheme, how many, petite, rustic, bright, full and fragrant… The list really can go on for a while!  076 069 065
But the right dress, the right color and style of that dress – that seems to matter more; which in all fairness and reality, it should!

Being a past bride myself, I know that you want to feel beautiful, stunning, breath taking! You want to be the best looking one, along with, but slightly better looking than, the groom!

086Now after your mom finally finds the perfect `Mother of the Bride` dress, you must focus on your long time, trusted and loved friends – your bridesmaids!

088Because they are your dear-to-heart, trouble-making, late night, partying, wine and cheese dining gals… They must look ravishing. Illuminating you, as they stand beside you in your even more dominant and radiant gown!

081This creatively crafted fuchsia J.O.A. designed dress will do the trick!

The dress shines boldly with it`s vibrant color and unique straps!
