THE LOCATION: Meadowlark Botanical Gardens is like a beautiful scene straight from The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Entering Meadowlark Botanical Gardens, it seems like you can see everything before you: rolling green hills, flower bushes, charming benches, and wandering animals. However, when you start down the main path, you realize that there is much enchantment to be had. This shoot will take you into every nook and cranny of the beautiful Gardens.
THE LOOK: I love that 70’s style is coming back to us in a smart, modern way. It is truly a godsend as a transition piece. While some fashionistas need transition pieces for season to season, I need them for event to event. When you are working full-time and going to graduate school, your weekends can get jam packed, keeping you constantly on the go. A smart 70’s bell bottom paired with several muted pieces is perfect for going from family events, to dates, to photo shoots. It keeps you modest and stylish without being boring. This entire outfit is from NY; see how it fares in a Virginian garden…
