Janelle In Real Life: birthday gifts and good photos


birthday gifts and good photos

Is it weird that I have more than one floral kimono?

I got this pretty one as a birthday gift! We found a Brandy Melville store while we were walking around in Hawaii and I decided that was where I wanted to pick out my birthday present! I got this gorgeous kimono and a perfect, summery dress. I already had a kimono with a floral print, but this one was so different looking and I totally still wear both. I can't help that I love them! And I keep seeing other floral kimonos that I'm in love with. it's taking a lot of willpower not to buy ALL THE FLORAL KIMONOS.
Also, these photos were taken by the ever so talented Kailey of Kailey Rae Photography! She was awesome to work with and took so many great photos for me (hence the reason there are a jillion photos in this post... I couldn't just choose a few, they were all too good!)
My husband does a great job of taking the photos I usually post, but he doesn't actually love doing it... he just loves me so he does it :) Kailey loves what she does and definitely has an eye for photography so it's nice to have some extra pretty pictures every once in a while.

Hope you're all having a fab day, and don't forget about the $100 Nordstrom giveaway going on right now!
