Happy Hump Day, friends! We are officially halfway through the work week:)

I escaped the Texas heat last week, and came back to Wisconsin to visit my family again. Our massive stucco project has taken over our house all summer, which has been really hard, especially with working from home. They started in June, and were supposed to be done in four weeks, which turned into eight, and now has turned into 10+. To say it has been a burden, strain and inconvenience would be putting it lightly. For sanity's sake, I returned to the Midwest. Fingers crossed when I go back this weekend, all the workers and their scaffolding will be gone, and my house is back to being my sanctuary (vs an insane asylum!!!).

I really hate to use my platform to complain, especially because I've always been a firm believer that you never know what anyone else is going through, and I know this hiccup is just temporary. That being said, I felt like I needed to give a brief explanation as to why things have been a bit stressful around here.

Now that that's out of the way, we can talk about this backdrop and outfit! As I mentioned in my last post, a few weeks ago I was taking photos for Modern Luxury Houston, and the shoot location was at the Hotel Alessandra. I've shot at the hotel before, and they are so wonderful to work with. They're so accommodating, and the property truly is five-star all the way! These photos were taken in their Presidential Suite, which was absolutely stunning, and had it's own patio that had gorgeous views of downtown!

Over the year's, I've searched high and low for the perfect pair of white denim, and when I found these, I knew they were "the one." They have the perfect amount of stretch, and they aren't see through. Also, they have real pockets, which I found is hard to come by on white pants - who knows! They're a little on the pricier side, but if you wear white denim as often as I do, they're seriously worth their weight in gold. They run TTS, but I suggest going one size up if you aren't familiar with the brand. Also, when it comes to white denim, you never want them too tight.

My mom bought this top for me when I was home last month, and unfortunately I can't link it online. I found two similar styles here and here, that are available in all sizes, and on sale! Both are super cute! 

See you soon! xo
