Vacation Dress

Vacation Dress

I always love when Instagram meets real life! I have met the most incredible people behind those squares! This past Saturday I had the privilege of being photographed by the lovely Porshia Hernandez.  She had been following me for a while on Instagram after I had started my blog in 2015.  She reached out to me via DM to let me know she was going to be in our area and would love to do a photo session! Below is one of 3 looks we shot together! I can’t wait for you to see them all! Be sure to check out more of her work here.

Below I am wearing what I call the ultimate beach/vacation dress.  I feel free and light in this dress.  When you are on vacation those are all the feels you have.  Not a lot on your mind and all about the super comfy attire! I love all the details in the ties and the low back! It is literally the perfect dress. Our mini vacation for Ben’s 30th is this month to and this dress will definitely be coming with me.  Let me know your thoughts on this dress! Are you all headed on any fun vacations this summer!? As always, thank you so much for stopping by the blog!!

Much love,

Ruthie xx
