When August rolls around, I always find my mind drifting towards fall. I have a love/hate relationship with this time of year because while I love fall, I also like the freedom of summer. If you didn't already know, I am a full-time school counselor in addition to blogging so summer is my favorite time of year. I love having the time to do whatever I want, work on content for my blog, and not have to adhere to any type of schedule. The more summer breaks I experience, the harder it is to go back to reality. This year feels especially hard because I've been really challenging myself to focus primarily on blogging and it's been very rewarding and FUN so not being able to commit 100% of my time to it will be a tough transition.
Welcome to the brand new Wannabe Fashion Blogger! My site developer and all around incredible human being Kaitlin Fontenot has been working with me over the last couple of months to create my dream site for this blog of mine. I have to admit, website stuff scares me. I understand that this sounds a little general, but really, tech stuff in on the whole, especially around website building, sounds like a foreign language to me so having someone as sweet as Kaitlin really made this process easy. Plus, she could take the gibberish that I e-mail her and turn it into something incredible.
Lately, I've been absolutely obsessed with polka dot prints. There's something so chic about a good polka dot that I haven't really wanted to wear much else. Remember when I told you guys that summer is the hardest season for me style inspo wise? Well, this summer, I've really tried to embrace it a little more and not just try to shy away from summer pieces. To replace my love of fall and winter layering, I've been trying to find unique pieces to help during the transition through the end of summer. Like this wrap dress, for instance. I really like that the wrap part adds an element of sexiness without sacrificing comfort and it is so damn easy to wear.
Hello, my name is Tamryn and I have been blogging for almost four years and have never shot swimwear. I know, I know. I live in California and have never shot swimwear photos. How is this even possible?! Well, I'll get right down to it, I never WANTED to show anyone what I looked like in a swimsuit. Let me backtrack a bit...
When I think of Park Winters, the first word that pops into my mind in "magical." This word may evoke cheesy thoughts of your favorite childhood Disney movies where the princess always lands her prince charming, but trust me, Park Winters lives up to the word. A few weeks ago, two of my closet girlfriends (Sarah from Sassy Red Lipstick and Shannon of Shandru Photography) and I were able to experience the full magic of this incredible estate But first, a little back story about my relationship with Park Winters. When Jonny and I were on the hunt for the perfect wedding venue, I stumbled upon a small thumbnail photo featuring the most gorgeous mansion on page, like, one thousand of a wedding venue search on The Knot. We knew exactly what we wanted. An outdoor space with a home on the property that our family could stay in during our wedding weekend.
