That Princess Moment

August 16, 2019

When I was in LA last week I got to play dress up with this stunning gown by Watters, and I honestly felt like a real life queen. This, clearly, isn’t my usual blog content, but I wanted to share these photos for two reasons. First, because this stunning dress needs to be shared and second, to show that sometimes every woman needs to just have fun with fashion and play dress up. Everyone deserves that princess / queen moment, and it’s okay to be a ‘serious professional’ and still play with dresses.


If you haven’t heard of Watters before, they make some of the most insanely gorgeous wedding, bridal party & formal event gowns I have ever seen. I can’t get enough of their designs. I also have to tell you about the earrings I chose to accessorize my waters gown. These rose bud statement earrings are by a brand called Les Couronnes de Victoire. Les Couronnes de Victoire uses real flowers to create hair accessories and jewelry. They use a special preservation process in order to work with real flowers but make them last. When you first open your box you can actually smell a hint of the flower!

In case you’re wondering where this shoot was at; to stick with the ‘queen for a day’ moment I was having with my Watters dress and rose earrings, I knew I wanted to shoot these photos at this castle on the beach in Laguna. This random castle building is nestled on a beach between Laguna & Newport, and walking through the sand to this castle in this dress was just such a cool experience.


I hope you all take the time soon to have your princess / queen moment; whatever that might be for you. ❤️

I’m back from vacation and back to work on Monday, so I’ll have a new work wear outfit post up then to go along with that! Stay tuned for a great work day dress. Have a great weekend everyone!!
