I have officially made it to Florence, Italy and have had a wonderful first few days here. I wasn’t originally going to post these photos to the blog but I am so in love with this dress, I just absolutely had to.
This For Love and Lemons Dress is my most favorite piece I own and I made the decision of not bringing it to Italy with me. I only wanted to pack practical clothing that I could mix and match with lots of outfits while still leaving room for some new things.
Of course, before I parted ways with this dress, I had a mini backyard photoshoot in it!
Ciao for now

Here are some more shots from the KC Creatives meet-up on February 3. These are from the amazing Amina Shaw. She is such a light and I can’t wait to work with her more in the future!
I put these photos in a separate blog post mainly because I wanted to quickly talk about how important thrifting is! I purchased this red blouse from a Goodwill in Columbia, Missouri for 99 cents. It was so bold and the first thing I saw in the store. It’s 100% silk, from Bloomingdales, and in PERFECT condition. For 99 cents? Not bad.
Especially as a college student on a budget, it is not easy to buy all new clothing for Instagram content and blog posts. Thrift stores and vintage shops are the way to go to not only save money, but make a statement.
