Kate Spade-Inspired Holiday Styled Shoot

Styled Photoshoots

Raise your hand if you love Kate Spade. And how about Christmas? What about puppies in tutus? Yes to all three? Me too!

My one-year blog birthday is coming up next week, so I’ve been looking through old posts and saved links to my early inspirations. I posted a picture from a shoot I saw on Style Me Pretty in my sixth ever blog post, back when I was just getting a feel for WordPress (hence, my layout is atrocious), trying to figure out what exactly I wanted to blog about, and most of all, getting more and more excited about the new project I was embarking on. I look back at this shoot from time to time, and it brings me right back to my early days of blogging from a hot pink desk chair in my tiny, freezing cold Pittsburgh apartment–excited, inspired, and amazed at all the creativity out there. This particular source of amazement is a Kate Spade-Inspired Holiday photo shoot, styled by the oh-so-appropriately named Styled Creative, and photographed by the wonderful Alison Conklin.

Perfection, right? I love all the sparkly details and the splashes of my favorite color (turquoise). Add some Louboutins and a cute pup into the mix and I can’t imagine anything better!

Wishing you a wonderful first weekend of December…make it special! :)
