My 2018 Holiday Fashion Lookbook + VIDEO

Hello and Happy 2019!!! I really wanted to have this post up before the clock hit midnight on January 1st but to be completely honest, I was spending some time off of social media to enjoy quality time with friends and family over the holidays. These are some of my holiday outfits and outfit inspirations from this past season that I believe will also carry over to the next holiday season!

First is the whole lookbook video followed by still photos.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year! I am so excited to see what 2019 brings.

A Dark Valentine’s

Happy Valentine’s Day 2018, I guess… Everyone who knows me knows that I do hate this holiday; not because I’m single (that part is awesome for now) but because I think that we should love one another this much every single day and not just only on February 14th.

I shot this photos with the super talented Anna Tripoltis at our local Target! I was inspired by the “ugly places pretty photos” Lowe’s challenge and used the Valentine’s Day sections here. Since I’m not a fan of V-day, I went for an all black, gothic look; lipstick included. Something to edge up all the girly-ness.

I looked at my Valentine’s Day post from a year ago and it is so crazy to see how much I’ve changed in just 365 days! If interested, feel free to check that out here.

The KC Creatives Meetup 2/3/18

I feel as if I have been going to meet-ups left and right and I absolutely love it. It’s so refreshing to work with tons of creative people who all have their own individual mindset. I will keep updating this post as more shots roll in!

The theme of this meet-up hosted by the KC Creatives was Valentine’s Day. Molly Balloons (queen balloon artist of Kansas City) was there to create some fun things too. I decided to stick with the theme and wear the color red by throwing on my favorite red striped flare pants from AFRM. I wear these things so often I think I should buy a second pair for when these completely give out.

I have a short part 2 from this meet up coming soon! Stay tuned!

Hub Day – H Collective – Kansas City

I am so glad that H Collective was having a Hub Day meet-up in Kansas City! I ended up going and met tons of amazing creatives. I got to shoot with about ten different photographers. It is so cool to see how each one has a different view and inspiration for the same outfit/pose. I only have images back from 2 photographers so far but as more come my way I will update this post!

Be sure to follow me on Instagram @bellalightner to keep up with everything else with my life!

VLOG 1 : SUMMER 2017 ROAD TRIP – NEW ORLEANS, PANAMA CITY BEACH, ST. AUGUSTINE, SAVANNAH

Hi! Thanks so much for watching my video. I have never done anything like this before in fear of what people would think or if people would even watch. I realized how much I love looking back on good memories and thought this would be a fun way to do so. I am so awkward in this video because I’m not used to this but, I had fun with it and plan to make more and hopefully get more comfortable talking to the camera in public places.
