WHAT to WEAR // summer engagement photos

I have been seriously in love with rompers lately, so I thought for this month’s WHAT to WEAR look, a romper was a must. Grab a flirty floral print romper, booties and a floral crown (bonus points if it is real flowers) for a pretty boho look. Dress your guy in chinos and a blazer and a tie to ensure he looks extra dapper. This summer engagement inspiration is the perfect pretty meets preppy meets boho look all rolled into one and is perfect for wandering the streets of Chicago or talking a stroll through the Art Institute Gardens.

Summer, I thought you were here, but the Chicago weather is playing games on me. My style is longing for some summer fun like this month’s WHAT to WEAR look. Pair a flowy maxi skirt with a crop top and wedges for a style that screams pretty and fashionable. Add a statement necklace, and you are ready to go. Have your guy toss on his favorite dark jeans, washed out tee and a linen blazer. This summer engagement style is perfect for a stroll along the lake or cocktails at your favorite outdoor Chicago patio.

WHAT to WEAR // casual chic engagement session

I’m a little bit in denial that summer is coming to a close which is why I think I fell in love with this gorgeous pale coral dress for this WHAT to WEAR engagement session post. Pair this beautiful dress with some pale aqua jewelry, gold accessories, and a fun and flirty floppy hat for a look that screams casual chic. Dress your man in a white tee, dark pants, sneakers and have a grey suit jacket. Now you two are ready for some photos along the beach and / or the trendy restaurant across the street.

WHAT to WEAR // tribal inspired engagement session

Confession. I am utterly, and completely obsessed with all things fringe lately, so when I saw these A-MAZ-ING  black fringe booties, I knew I had to make a WHAT to WEAR based solely around them. Pair a sexy shoe with a tribal printed mini skirt and a bold statement necklace, and hell-o, hottie! Dress your man in dark denim (maybe even roll those pant legs up a little …. ) and a bright colored shirt with sneakers, and I’d say you have a pretty fashionable look for a couple who wants to stroll the trendiest River North streets … hitting up the best restaurants and bars.

WHAT to WEAR // boho engagement session

Maybe it was the long days of beaching or the carefree spirit of traveling like a gypsy for months, but I am utterly, totally obsessed with all things boho lately. Flower crowns, fringe, denim …. swoon. I cannot get enough. So for this WHAT to WEAR, I designed a look that I want in my closet, but a look that is so perfect spring and all my boho sistas out there. Rock this look in a huge open field of flowers or amidst the forest. Dreamy images are sure to come.

WHAT to WEAR // winter engagement shoot

It is beginning to feel a lot like winter. The snow, the holiday lights, the cold. So for this week’s WHAT to WEAR, I thought it would be fun to do a winter look.

As soon as the temperatures drop, this is such an fun look for an outdoor engagement sessions. Between the sweet, yet sassy navy blue jacket and great, grey suede booties, any girl will still feel dressed up while staying warm. Give your guy a dark wool coat, some jeans and scarf, and you two are set for some adorable winter engagement photos. Snuggling encouraged (and needed to stay warm).

WHAT to WEAR // engagement shoot

You guys, I feel terrible. I was posting this series every week … and then bam. Craziness began, and I sort of forgot about my favorite series on the blog like a favorite sweater that gets buried in the back of your closet. So it is back, and I promise to keep the inspiration coming again.

This engagement session look is perfect for an urban backdrop. The girl’s look is edgy and sophisticated and right on trend while the guy’s look is hip and cool with grey denim and black sneakers. I love this look and may try to sneak my boyfriend into something like this for date night. :)

I ditched my TV last night for a few hours of shopping for some new fall clothes. I was smitten with all the animal print and leather for this season, but one of my favorite trends is the aztec cardigan sweater. Pair a bold sweater with black leggings, boots and a little beanie for a trendy, edgy fall senior look.

I love it when it rains, but most people would rather have sunshine for their engagement photos. I do love dreamy afternoon light (swoon), yet, there is something romantic and sexy about a session in the rain. Here is a fun, rainy day look for those brave enough to get a little wet.

Toss a big flower in your hair and some light pink lips and you are all set to bring out your inner bombshell.

WHAT TO WEAR // SUMMER ENGAGEMENT SESSION

I think hands down one of the biggest questions I get asked by my clients is what they should wear for their photo shoots. I wrote a post on what to wear for an engagement session a while back, but I decided it would be fun to have a weekly “what to wear” post. This allows me to “window” shop and play stylist … which let’s face it … is what I love to do. (I sometimes spend hours just picking out fun outfits in my closet … ) Every week you will be seeing different inspirations on what to wear for your photo shoots.

If you love the outfits, just click the image to find out where to buy everything — or just use the color palette to help create something similar with different pieces. So here we go … the first WHAT TO WEAR post …. a casual look for a summer engagement session.
