Boot Cut Style Session #2!

Welcome to my personal favorite Boot Cut Style Session!

A few behind-the-scenes truths before we get started:
Truth: This is the first time I'm brave enough to mix prints like this and I LOVE IT!
Truth: My husband is a rock star. I felt horrible going on this photo shoot with him because he had a pounding headache, but he insisted. He has taken every awesome photo of these Style Sessions even while hurting. He shot each one with great effort - I am impressed and humbled. He loves me.
Truth: This Style Session photo shoot was the most frustrating one because Michael hated that I was standing in the middle of the road while at least 5 cars and 20 million bikers passed us between EACH PHOTO. I was so mad haha. But then I thought, "Chelsea, what do you expect?! It's around the time for people to get home from work and YOU chose to stand in the middle of the road!"
Truth: I felt the most confident in this outfit. I believe the photos are that much better because what I'm wearing expressed "me" the most at this time. 
That's the thing - style isn't everything and shouldn't define you and your happiness, rather, style highlights your personality and creativity.

So remember: 
"The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with 
everyone else's highlight reel." - Steven Furtick

The location at which we were shooting was half a mile away from a beautiful mountain scene, but there were other people who were parked in the spot where we would've taken photos, so we decided to save that scenic photo op for another blog post. I loved taking photos here! The road I'm standing in the middle of leads UP a mountain. 

The blazer I'm wearing is fabulous. It's silky and the background is dark green with subtle and reflective lighter green spots all over for texture. The florals look like they were painted on by an artist. They have rich and deep violet hues which I love. The floral print pops with random appearances of white and gives the print a nice contrast - especially for photos. This blazer is a work of art that I get to wear. I bought it from Anthropologie last fall, but I found three similar and adorable options that you can directly shop below:

Chic Lavender Blazer - Reminds me of fashion blogger Mckenna Bleu's style!
Floral Print Moto Jacket - My favorite (because it's unique!)

I'm wearing a V-neck cotton tee from Target underneath this blazer! 
Target always has cute white tees!
The jeans I'm wearing are called "The Ballad" by one of my favorite denim brands - AG by Adriano Goldschmied. His jeans have always fit me like a glove and I have never had to get them altered even though I am 5'2''! 
They don't stretch very much, either! 
There are several different versions of The Ballad here which fit exactly like mine, but are different washes. The Ballad "Delight" wash seems to be the most similar version!
I think this outfit would look great with a long gold necklace or a short gold statement necklace. 

I've linked a four really cute necklaces (all under $30!) below that you can shop directly:
Crystal Station Necklace - Most similar to mine!

My leopard print shoes are some of my favorites. I mean, why wouldn't they be?! They are sold out, which I think is crazy that Steve Madden doesn't carry them year round, but I linked a few different versions below:

BCBGeneration Jaze Leopard Pump (Most similar to mine & under $80!!!)

And the lip color I'm wearing is actually the same lip color I wore on my wedding day!
Yes, it's THAT good. 
It applies like a smooth, creamy lipstick and dries (and stays that way for a long time) like a matte lipstick.

Let me know what you think of this post and any future "Series" ideas you may have in the comment section below!

I hope this post challenges you to think of new ways to mix patterns like I did! 

Have a great Thursday & stay tuned for the third Boot Cut Style Session coming tomorrow!


"'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”

Mark 12:30-31
