Thanksgiving + Gift Giving with Uncommon Goods

Photos by Annie Hall

My brother's girlfriend Annie was shooting some pregnancy photos for my sisters (both are due around Valentine's Day!), so I decided to be an opportunist and get in some outfit photos.
Annie just purchased an amazing new lens and I really love how these turned out.  She also gave a lot of direction, which was a lot more helpful than Ty's directions: "Cross your legs over when you step, but go straight." How????

Let me tell you a funny story about this necklace.  I picked it out solely on the design (I am a big fan of art-deco style jewelry) and of course read nothing of the description.  When it arrived it had instructions on how to open and close it, and I was super confused.  I thought it actually functioned as portable tweezers or something haha. I was wrong...check out the description here.  Makes sense, considering the name :p

While your there, make sure to check out the whole site.  Uncommon Goods is a great place to find unique gifts (it is probably a major source for all those 'GIFT GUIDES FOR THE IMPOSSIBLE TO SHOP FOR' and '10 CLEVER PRODUCTS YOU DIDN'T KNOW YOU NEEDED' lists that are always popping up on Buzzfeed.  I especially like that they have bios on the artists for the handmade pieces...makes each piece feel more special. Plus, you can Black Friday shop sans guilt, because even their seasonal workers make 50% above minimum wage.  As a former retail employee, I am definitely on board with that.

P.S. Sisters, I am getting this for you babies. Baby burritos!

Berkeley Rose Garden with BB Dakota

On Whit:  c/o BB Dakota Giselle Sweater, Illesteva Boca (similar), Topshop Pineapple Shorts and Lace-up Flats (similar)

Photos by Jen Christo

After complaining about waiting for fall, we are quick to miss the sun we had when we shot these photos.  The weather was so perfect there were two other groups taking photos. 

We have been digging BB Dakota lately, so we were beyond excited when they sent us some of their new Fall pieces.  Mal doesn't normally gravitate towards trapeze dresses, but the bow in the back made this one special...feels a bit 1960s French or something. Oh, and of course in the same day as these photos, Whit managed to snag her sweater (typical).  Luckily, Mal had a snag nab-it handy!
