Toasting: cut out dress + straw hat

I had so much fun shooting these photos this past weekend. I’ve never played “tourist” in my hometown before and to say I enjoyed it, is an understatement. We started off in my backyard in historic Hyde Park and then headed downtown.

(If you followed along behind the scenes on Snapchat (bannc), you already know that!)

This is a super special post as it’s my first official Tampa, Florida shoot since moving back down here. It was also my first time shooting with the lovely Alexis and I’m sharing more photos than usual because she’s pretty amazing. 

I’m BAC(k)!

With my new Hosting or Toasting fashion series launching on H&T, this dress (with its open back) fits in with the Toasting lifestyle – especially down here in Florida where it already feels like summer.

It’s quite fitting for tropical vacations too and any place that a cool cocktail in hand is appropriate (which I say is pretty much everywhere).

  1. I need that dress in my life now that the weather is starting to warm up! Also, just realized you are from FL but now live in DC 🙂 Welcome to the club girlfriend! I’m in dire need of getting back to the Sunshine State for a visit soon though! I miss the ocean!
