DRESS: Kate Spade

All photos taken by Jessica Janae Photography

This was one of my favorite weekends in a long time. It started at David’s show while I stood there staring with heart palpitations having a total high school crush on my husband. And saturday we hiked up to some beautiful hot springs here in Utah with Chauncey and I was reminded how unbelievably beautiful Utah is. Our hike today through a stream while fly fishing only confirmed it. Chauncey loves to splash in the streams and scare all the  fish away.. but I guess watching him try to chase his own splash is worth it, its wildly hilarious.

Jess and I had fun doing this shoot and I decided to go with no shoes since I do get emails asking “why is your name Barefoot Blonde yet you’re never barefoot?” …. well I definitely think shoes complete an outfit and I like to show complete outfits but I like to look at shoes more than I like to wear them. I am barefoot 90% of the time in the Summer and any chance I get to take my heels off and walk barefoot, I take it so I figured I would show that today. I am one of those people that walks barefoot into Subway, or the gas station, or even gas station bathrooms on road trips (gasp, I know).. I should seriously be more concerned about germs than I am. But oh well.

  1. It’s true, there’s nearly not enough barefoot going here.

    What a lovely dress and gorgeous pictures. See, this dress proves that some outfits work even better with bare feet! Shoes are great and all but there’s nothing like going barefoot :)
    Love, Amy

  7. “I like to look at shoes more than I like to wear them” is me in a nutshell. I never wear shoes and my boyfriend always complains that my feet are gross and dirty. And, as usual you look amazing :)
