The Lei Maker // Wildfox X TJ Swim
I feel like with every blog post I fall more and more in love with Morgan Newton's photography. She absolutely crushed this set, shot at the beach in Santa Barbara, CA. This series was shot with Morgan's beautiful cousin Emily and Jordan Willner of Otto Models!
Emily is wearing one of my favorite new bikini styles a wrap around tie top! Emily is a gorgeous volleyball player who could rock any swimsuit thrown on her. This pastel iridescent bikini is from Wildfox as well as the adorable pink "Kitten" sunnies! Her naturally blonde hair is just as perfect as her. I started her braid by doing simple beachy curls with two dutch braids tied together in the back. The ends of the dutch braids were then braided together into a fishtail!
Jordan is wearing the cutest one-piece from TJ Swim a brand from Australia we had the luck to work with on this shoot! TJ Swim has an amazing Instagram that makes me fall more and more in love with Australia every time I see their pics! The sun was setting during this shoot so I only had a couple of minutes to pull together a fishtail braid on Jordan. This braid would be nothing without the exotic red of Jordan's natural hair color!
Both models are wearing amazing jewelry from Thalken! Hana of Thalken makes simple statement jewelry that is the perfect addition to any beach attire. Jordan and Emily are both wearing sunnies by Wildfox and the cutest temporary tattoos by INKED! by Dani! These tattoos are so fun and makes me want to get the real thing. And finally, what I'm sure you've been wondering is, WHO MAKES THE FLOWER CROWNS??? I had the amazing opportunity to partner with Anna of The Lei Maker for these! I sent Anna an idea of styling and let her do her thing! They're perfect and I couldn't imagine them any other way. I would recommend her to anyone!
