I typically stick to neutrals or sun-bleached pastels, but in the spirit of Fourth of July weekend I wanted to share a bit of red, white and blue. Recently Greg and I teamed up with Bow & Drape to shoot the patriotic #redwhitebeautiful insta-lookbook.
For those not familiar with Bow & Drape, the Boston-based fashion start-up offers beautiful basics and occasion wear, all customizable and made-to-order in NYC. In addition to fabrics, colors, and design details (sleeves, necklines, and hem lines), pieces can be personalized with trims like leather and lace or hand-painted flower motifs. For this shoot, however, we stuck with the classics: a luxe maxi wrap dress with Marilyn Monroe appeal, a full and flirty skirt perfect for picnics and waterfront walks, and their signature piece, the cardimono, a versatile cover-up in rich crepe de chine.
I had a great time with Aubrie and the Bow & Drape team, sipping watermelon sodas, picking flowers, and running barefoot through the grass while Greg snapped away. You can see the entire lookbook (plus behind the scenes) on their Instagram and shop the looks online, but these are a few of my favorites from the day that didn’t make the cut.
Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend!
