instax summer & style - part 3


here is the third and final post of my series with instax! i had way too much fun photographing my outfits with the instax mini 8 and mini 90 cameras, as well as printing some of my favorite summer photos with the share printer!


the photos from this outfit are making me miss peony season so much! they are one of my favorite flowers... not to mention, they're extremely photogenic!

a loose, open-knit sweater is a necessity for me during the summer. although i've paired it with a simple white skirt above, it looks fantastic with shorts too. although it's a sweater, it's extremely lightweight and airy–making it one of my summer wardrobe staples.


i'm going to wrap up this post by sharing a few more of my favorite prints from the share printer. i love having all of my favorite digital snaps printed on the instax film! i've printed so many, and now i need to think of a way to display them all!

instax summer & style - part 2


here is the second post of my series with instax! in the second and third photos above i used the self-timer settings on the instax® mini 90. the camera twisted onto my tripod easily and i was pretty happy with the outcome. sometimes self-timers can be tricky when it comes to focusing, but i didn't run into any issues with the mini 90!


a few prints from the share printer. i had originally posted both of these photos on my instagram account last year, and decided to print them out and share them as part of this project. i love how both of them came out!


both of these outfits have been on repeat for me all summer long. although the embroidered dress is shapeless for the most part, i love how it flows and moves when i walk–it's also extremely lightweight which is a huge plus! i like to dress it up a little with some strappy sandals.

and while we're on the topic of flowy, this blouse is one of my favorites. it's so much fun to wear and pairs perfectly with boyfriend jeans, skinny jeans, and shorts. i couldn't help but pair it with my favorite espadrille flats.

instax summer & style - part 1


i hope everyone is having a wonderful summer! for the past month i've been working on an incredible project with FUJIFILM INSTAX®, and i'm so excited to finally share it with you!

fujifilm asked me to style and photograph five of my favorite summer outfits with their instax cameras. i was sent the instax® mini 8 camera as well as the instax® mini 90 (shown in the 2nd picture above!). an instax camera has been on my wish list for years, so to say that i was excited to take part in this project is a huge understatement.

it took almost no time at all for me to learn how to work each camera properly. although i used both cameras for this project, i would have to say the mini 90 was my favorite. not only is it visually appealing (i'm a little obsessed with how it looks), i really love the self timer settings. you can easily adjust the light settings to make the photo lighter or darker, it has settings for macro and action shots, and the ability to take a double-exposure photo.


in addition to the cameras, i was also sent the instax® share printer. i really wanted to include some summer-themed photos with this project, but i didn't have time to properly pack my cameras for the beach. the printer uses an app which allows you to take digital photos from your phone and print them directly onto the film. it's a very easy process, and the prints look like they could have been taken with one of the instax cameras.


both of the outfits featured in this post are very casual weekend outfits for me. they're perfect for running errands, shopping, or going out to lunch. my summer wardrobe is filled with simple pieces that can be worn all season long. new england summers can be unpredictable at times. one day could be a beautiful, 70 degree day, and the next is hot, humid, and close to 90. in either of these cases, you can't go wrong with a simple striped tee, or a gauzy blouse paired with shorts.

be sure to check back here on wednesday for the second part of this series!

serena & lily apparel


it's pretty much my dream to be able to deck out my home in serena & lily everything. the bedding, furniture, and decor all have a fresh and relaxed vibe to them. earlier this year they launched their first women's capsule collection, and it's safe to say i want one of everything.

the silhouettes are simple, structured, and the perfect blank canvas for accessorizing with your favorite jewelry or shoes. as much as a i love little white dresses (like the edie trapeze dress or june party dress), it's the alice party dress that has my heart. i can't resist a good blue and white printed dress!
