I hope you have been enjoying The Instagram Wives LA takeover posts so far. If you missed the first two, you can see them here and here. This whole trip could not be possible if it wasn't for our generous sponsor The Avenue. They are such an awesome brand and we are extremely grateful for them believing in The Instagram Wives. So to show our appreciation, on our last day in LA, we drove up to Santa Monica Beach and did one last shoot showcasing the outfits they sent us for the trip to create a look book. We knew while we were in sunny California, visiting one of the many beautiful beaches was a must. Since Lizza, our photographer, lives in Santa Monica she suggested me go by there for some shots. It was definitely worth the ride, it's a beautiful beach with amazing views, and not to mention the Santa Monica Pier which holds an amusement park as well. We didn't have time to check out the action at the pier but from the beach it sure did look like a lot of fun. I'll just have to add that to my list when I come back to visit. To say we had fun doing this shoot is an understatement, it was the perfect day and with Lizza keeping us on our toes the photos came out amazing.
Dress c/o Avenue
You guys know how much I love Avenue, I've done a few post on their clothing and have been super pleased with their selections as of late. This beautiful Chevron Crotchet Maxi Dress was just perfect for pictures at the beach, it was light, airy and so comfy. The pretty chevron crotchet overlay made this such an elegant looking dress but still classically simple with in the delicate white color. Definitely figure flattering with the long maxi design and tie belt which gives the dress some shape. From the looks I was getting on the beach, I knew this was a great choice, I felt like a total beach babe in this dress.
Darlene in her true daring form, went and asked the local bike rental guy on the beach if we could borrow one of his bikes for the shoot. Well he said yes and it turned out to be such a cute accessory for our pictures. Way to go Darlene!
This trip was just an amazing experience, getting to attend Blogher '16 as well as being in LA was definitely a dream come true for me. We hoped you enjoyed our adventures while we were here as well. Thank you Avenue for being an awesome sponsor and for your continued support of The Instagram Wives. Also a huge thank you to Lizza of Fabulizza.com for being the best photographer ever!!To see all the photos from the shoot make sure to check out the look book below as well as visiting Darlene's and Jami's blogs for more details on their looks.
