      Winter can be dreary and cold and wet and all you want to do is pile on are layers and layers of down/puffiness! These patterned pants make such a great compromise of fashion meets function! (I layer mine with thermal pants underneath for those especially bone chilling days.) The key to wearing patterned pants is wearing solid and/or simple on top! 
How I wore them from left to right: A slightly fitted soft grey 3/4 sleeve sweatshirt. 
                                                     A Cream fitted sweater with an oxblood colored leather trench.
                                                     A powder blue sweater with a sandy/tan blazer.
                                                     A Chambray shirt tucked in with a black belt. 
      To keep the outfit me I added these two necklaces alternating them from one outfit to the next. The first outfit was a little too grey for me, So I wore both of the necklaces together! My Mia Luna bracelet had to get a plug because I've been wearing it nonstop! Don't forget to stop by Piperbydesign for a look at the Mia Luna line! I hope this gave you a little inspiration on how you can style patterned pants and statement necklaces! 
                                                                                     XOXO From me to you!

Lost in the US of A

                                           Lost in the US of A

 This was such a beautiful day and I love the field/outfit we chose for these particular pictures. The temperature is getting cooler and cooler and sweater weather is just around the corner! I can't wait for the hot chocolate and s'mores that will be passed around the campfire soon!  

Nearly everything from this shoot was either vintage or Mia Luna which is exactly the way I like it! 
Stars and stripes sweater - thrifted 
Denim cutoffs - thrifted (Altered by me)
Justin boots - I've had since my horseback riding days
Leather and antler cuff -  Mia Luna (Made by me) 
Sunglasses - Betsy Johnson 
Photography by the one and only Jess Schell with Modus photography!!! I love her!!!

Dream Beneath My Moon.

      My friends and I have put together a little fall Lookbook for some of my PiperbyDesign Mia Luna collection. The name Mia Luna is for my dear sister Mia and in Italian Mia Luna is My Moon. That is what she is for me now, My Moon. I'm trying to slowly transition PiperbyDesign into Mia Luna I apologize for any confusion this may cause! 

     Thank you to Brenna Kneiss for modeling some of the fall collection!The biggest thank you must go out to Jess Schell for Filming and editing such a beautiful piece of art! Although this is called the fall collection there will be plenty to come very soon!!! I will be sure to announce when there is more to show! So keep a look out!!! Thank you my friends!

Like a breeze

      Spring is almost here and I can't help but love it! All of the Floral prints and POPS of color that always make an appearance at this time make me so happy. Not to mention the pretty pastels that have been everywhere this season! It seems like Easter came early! Here is another photo shoot of Paige and I Our Beautiful photographer for the day was Jess Schell here is her site . Enjoy some of the pictures that I feel embody the chill of winter and flowers of spring! p.s. It was pretty chilly in our little nightgowns but the result was worth it! :)

Gypsy soul

My favorite shot of the day! The lovely Paige!
I look slightly like a ghost! 

       A week ago I was privileged to be a part of a spring lookbook for Sassy Sister Vintage Thomas(Owner and creator of Sassy Sister Vintage)and I styled the shoot and watched the looks come to life. Paige Guthrie and I served as living mannequins and enjoyed every minute! Well... maybe not the minutes spent with pesky mosquitoes!!! But hey it makes for a fun story! "Remember the time we were chased by a black cloud that turned out to be swarms of mosquitoes? Me too, That was... fun." Still, it was worth it, the clothes were fantastic and the people involved with the shoot were amazing as well! We were lucky to have two very talented photographers to work with! Jess Schell of Schell photography and Tami Darley of T. Darley Photography I hope we get to do this again soon!
