Best Fashion Moments 2014

Happy 2015! I hope you had a great break. I don’t know about you, but before I dive into a new year, I always like to look back at the previous one. It all goes by so fast so taking a moment to process and digest it is really important to my sanity (just ask poor Fred Baby!).

We’re still on our desert road trip (follow along here!) but I wanted to pause and reflect on the past year, starting with some of my favorite fashion shoots, looks and moments. They each bring up so many memories and I can’t help but feel so grateful for all of the wonderful places I got to travel to in 2014 and the amazing people I was fortunate to meet and work with. Styling these looks + producing these photo shoots is such a joy! Hope you enjoy these highlights…And I’d love to know your favorite!
