Editorial: A Game of Cards at El Capitan Canyon with Jose Villa for Flutter Mag

Happy 2015 everyone! I thought I’d start the year off with one scene from an editorial I shot with Jose Villa for at Flutter Mag. As part of our Glamping story, published in the spring issue, I art directed this fun scene of the models playing a game of cards. We picked a spot just across from the cabins at El Capitan Canyon and I styled the scene with a cute deck of cards and a carafe of Foley rose wine with strawberries and raspberries for color. I pulled wardrobe from Bonita and Dressed/Ready and was going for a casual, elegant camping vibe. There’s tons more pretty from this shoot so stay tuned!

DIY: Confetti Flower Petals

As a child my grandmother taught me how to dry flowers and I had forgotten about it until Kim, the editor of Flutter Magazine, asked me if I wanted to style a DIY involving dried flower petals. Three days later, we shot this pretty little DIY with the sweet Arna Bee. I picked up wildflower blooms at Santa Barbara’s Farmers Market for $5. You can check out the full story and directions right here in Flutter (and a classic behind the scenes shot is here on my Instagram).

I love color no matter the time of year and this long floral dress always put me in a good mood. I paired it with a vintage candy colored bracelet and bright red lips.

Fashionable: Casual Santa Barbara Style

While it may start be a touch cooler in Santa Barbara, its still by in large flip flops and tank top weather. This look is pretty much my uniform for most of the year…

A pop of gold from some gold reef shaped earrings, similar here.

Jeans are Stevie by Anthropologie and are consistently the most perfect style of jean I’ve found.

I love the back on this top, coral ombre? Yes, please.
