Navy Metallic Wrap Dress

I’m going to preface today’s post by asking for a little forgiveness. This is not my best because it was freezing cold! Even being from St. Louis, I have never been able to handle cold well. I’m a wimp! This was shot on a day in Dallas with windchill in the teens. Because of busy schedules and limited hours of sunlight, we usually only have one day per week to photograph, and this was my last outfit. All credit goes to Tyler, as he photographed quickly.

Since New Years Eve is just around the corner, what a better way to indulge in this winter fruit than add champagne?! Cheers to champagne with your daily fruit!
