East vs West Coast – Nautical Stripes

This week’s challenge is one of my favorite (and seems to me most re-occurring trend) nautical stripes. See how some of my favorite bloggers styled their stripes this week!
I realized while sitting at my desk today that I was rocking one of the trends in this East vs West Coast challenge. Problem was, my go to photographer, Beka, was no where to be found. AKA, bitch was at work and so was I. So I grabbed my lovely friend Ryan who lives right next door and said “hey can you pretend to be a photographer?” he graciously helped me take some photos and I have to say, we did a pretty good job for not knowing squat about this. I rely on Beka to take gorgeous photos, so I’ll never get rid of her. But I think snagging Ryan a few afternoons to snap a quick photo may be our new thing.  We’ll get him trained for this, he’ll be taking appointments in no time ladies.
