The things that really make me excited are creating beautiful images and traveling to different locations to capture something really inspiring and original for my site. To come up with an idea and see it come to life is so fulfilling and exhilarating. The Friday nights I used to be so excited for- to go out to the bar with my friends- have quickly turned into the early nights in bed preparing for a shoot on Saturday. At times my friends call me boring, “You aren’t the Sheazy we used to know” (yes my adolescent nickname was a very creative mix of Shea and crazy) but when you find something you really love your priorities start changing and you don’t even realize it. At this point my day-to-day work consists of so many different things (from styling, TV hosting, fashion consulting, etc) busy and unpredictable all the time, but what I really love are the personal projects of my own.
I had been wanting to go see the California poppies in bloom, so finally on a day off (which turned quickly into a day on) we made the trip to catch them in their beauty before the end of their short-lived yearly life span.
I’m saving the actual pictures of the shoot to share when my new site launches later this week. Yes finally! But here’s a few playful snaps from our drive out there in a comfy little mini dress and my Isabel Marant sandals which were glued to my feet last year, for an easy (and more importantly easy to change out of) road trip look. Being a California girl theres nothing I love more than a little loose breezy mini dress, hair blowing in the wind and a beautiful sunny day.
