Hiiiii there! No, I did not fall to my death while trying to strut it in killer 6 inch heels. My silence (I was on another blog host before tonight) can be blamed on my crazy busy life nine-to-five-ing it as a Research Assistant on campus this summer. It's more like 9-7 really and I usually come home with 2 thoughts - dinner and bed.
Anyway, I did have a lot of fun this weekend and hope you did too. I have some pretty pretty girlfriends who are, well, pretty, not to mention talented and creative and I figured why not click some pictures while we hang out. It was a blast - we got to see each other after a while, it was finally sunny out after days of gloomy weather and I decided a themed photoshoot at a nearby park would be perfect! The theme is "Flower Child Revisited" if you didn't already guess by the title of this post!
Models: Rae Piwarski, Laura Slaathaug, Ariel Ludvigsen, Allessa Ludvigsen and moi (cuz it's my blog! Jokes!)
Pictures taken by: Rae, with Laura and I contributing occasionally.

The reason I themed this photoshoot Flower Child Revisited is because florals and bright colors - a staple of the 70's phase - is currently a trend. The trends encompass the flower child persona but with a modern facelift and I tried to capture that in the pictures like the one below where Rae (right) has on a pair of high-waisted shorts which is a hot trend this summer but she also brings in the flower child vibe with a bright blue bandeau top from Forever 21, a bold fuschia lip and a necklace with leafy accents, also from Forever 21.

|Love this picture! But we were so sad that people would vandalize such pretty public property - woah didn't mean to alliterate there!|
