I’ve been on the hunt for an amazing leather tote all summer. I’ve been traveling a lot and the need for it grew and grew. I checked out so many…Madewell, JCrew, Etsy, and a few others. They are all amazing….but this one takes the cake on first sight. I saw it on Pinterest and I went directly to the site. I watched all the videos offered, looked into the tanning process, and bought it a week later when I couldn’t stop thinking about it.

The minute I opened the box, the beautiful leather smell sold me. I absolutely love the color of the leather, a deeper brown than I anticipated, but very beautiful. The Whipping Post logo is understated which is what I really wanted and the size was quite big, fitting everything I have into one convenient bag.

It’s been quite  awhile since I’ve done an outfit post! Since it’s so hot, I’ve just been living in my denim shorts and rotation of awesome Madewell white tees. Today there was no humidity when I woke up, the first I’ve seen this summer. I took advantage of it and got Amine out to Brook Run Park for this shoot when the sun started to set. He was quite enthusiastic since he’s learning about photography and he wanted to practice with the composition, lighting, and manual settings.

Back to the outfit! This portrait session is in this tulle skirt from Space46Boutique. They’ve only launched this past year, but have been a huge hit all over the blogosphere. I saw it on Wendy from Wendy’s Lookbook first, and thought that it was just phenomenal. It goes with so many different things, and can be styled in so many ways. I’ve worn it to a artistic Southern California wedding with an American Apparel black long sleeve bodysuit, I’ve worn it with a white tee shirt, and here, with a vintage bra crop top I found at Rag O Rama.

Kent’s Corneliani jacket is phenomenal. Just phenomenal. We were supposed to be shooting corporate headshots, but when he pulled out this jacket, we decided to take a spontaneous mini trek to the Peter’s Canyon Trail and went into the creek to shoot right during magic hour.

I’m obsessed with these retrosuperfutures. These sunglasses are the first nice ones I’ve ever bought myself. I’m the type to throw my sunglasses around everywhere, and wear them as headbands inside…but when I saw these, I had to get them.  40% off due to a mismark on the price pretty much sealed the deal. The glass is Zeiss, and the frame is acetate, handmade in Italy.
