For the second look in my storybook series, I chose none other than Sleeping Beauty, also known as Princess Aurora. As pink is my favorite color, I knew from the beginning I would want to recreate a modern pink princess look, complete with a gold tiara crown!

The crown is something I made one morning with a trusty hot glue gun, spare headband, and some lace trim I had lying around. For a one hour project, it certainly came out so much better than expected! For Princess Aurora's dress, I chose this beautiful high-low chiffon dress from Lulu's. As it had an off the shoulder neckline as well, I felt it was very fitting as a modern translation of Aurora's ball gown!

As flowers are a motif I strongly associate with the story of Sleeping Beauty, I styled in my floral hand bracelet from Roses & Clementines, and then finished the look with a pair of classic gold pumps from Lulu's to compliment the gold in the crown. As a disclaimer, I don't recommend walking around on hills in high heels, but sometimes the challenge is worth it to get the perfect shot ;) Special thanks to Chris for being so kind in carrying me on the hill, and to my sister for her photography and creative direction in transforming that tree stump into a beautiful rose throne! Hope you guys like the photos! <3

And a special announcement! I am going to be hosting Alice and Olivia's shopping event this Saturday, March 21st from 2-5 PM to celebrate the 3rd year anniversary of their San Francisco store!! If any of you guys can make it, it would make me so happy to meet you and I would also gladly personally style you! <3 In addition to an amazing discount, champagne, and sweets, there will be a live DJ too so it will definitely be a very fun time! :)
