Summer Weekends

29 June, 2016



  • These photographs are absolutely beautiful Kelsey! May I ask if you edit them at all or if these are purely just taken with your camera? I am obsessed with this outfit and it looks great on you – I definitely love the idea of putting a cute lace bralet underneath making the plunge less plunge-y, as you say! Where your parents live looks beautiful and I hope to be able to travel America one day πŸ™‚ xo

    • Omygoodness these were absolutely edited! Though I’m glad that they look natural enough for you too wonder πŸ™‚ I actually got these Lightroom presets due to a photographer, Megan Lee, that I just adore. They are Mastin Labs Porta presets and quite expensive… though I snagged them for 50% on their memorial day sale. I hope that helps! πŸ™‚

      And thank you so much! It’s such a simple, non extravagant place… but I love it. xo

    Love this dress and the bralette! And the photos are gorgeous, Kelsey. Days that I can just stay put are some of the best days. x

    • Thank you so much Jen! I swear sometimes slow weekends are just what I need. πŸ™‚

  • Wow! What beautiful landscape! While I’d love to be traveling all over the place, my weekends are mostly spent locally. I try to get out and explore as much as I can, especially during the summer. There is so much right outside my door that I have yet to experience.

    • I think that is absolutely perfect Brittany πŸ™‚ I’m kind of like you! I travel locally or more just within the states, and while I would love to travel out of the country, right now traveling more locally will have to do. But there is still s o m u c h I haven’t done. I hope you have a wonderful summer sweet girl! xo

  • This looks beautiful, absolutely loved the lace bralette! My summer has been a little boring, although I have a trip soon so I’m looking forward to it πŸ™‚ x

    • Omygoodnes I come up with every excuse to wear that bra. Oh where are you going sweet girl??

      • I would wear it all the time as well haha! I’m off to Miami, I’m so excited :D!

  • Wow your family’s ranchette is so beautiful! All of these photos are amazing and I’m in love with your outfit!

    • Thank you so much sweet girl! I feel like I’m always counting down the days till I get to wear that dress again. xo

  • I am a slow weekend type of person, but I don’t mind a cute trip!

    Laila from Townhouse Palette

    • Couldn’t agree more Laila! There is something a bit beautiful about both of them πŸ™‚

  • I am staying at my parents place atm, and I have to admit, I under appreciated how much I missed just wondering among the fields!

    • It’s one of those things I feel like we don’t appreciate til we leave it huh? πŸ™‚

  • These are stunning pictures! Just so pretty!

    • Thank you so much Christine! xo

  • Gorgeous photographs – this place looks so peaceful and tranquil!

    Lucy | Forever September

    • Thank you so much Lucy! It’s such a nice break from the hustle and bustle πŸ™‚

  • Your family’s ranchette sounds wonderful! Love all of these pictures so much! That picture of your hat on the fence should be on a magazine cover πŸ™‚ And the last one of you! Maybe you could submit these to the Bella Grace of Artful Blogging magazines by Somerset? I’m sure they would love to use them in one of their issues!

    xo, mikΓ©la /

    • Thank you thank you MikΓ©la! I had never even heard of the magazine but I followed them on instagram and am amazed that you think my photo is good enough for them. You are always so kind and supportive!

      PS I’m headed to Yellowstone and I’m SO BUMMED our trips didn’t align. xo

  • YOU, these photos, the editing (!!), the scene….I love everything. we aggressively enjoy both types of weekends…if that makes sense πŸ˜‰ we LOVE to travel, but we indulge in between and spend lots of quiet time at home.

    • Thank you so much Annie! I am having a bit too much fun with my lightroom + photoshop lately LOL Oh the wild nights of bloggers πŸ™‚

      It makes perfect sense! As it’s the best of both worlds. xo
