Coco Chanel once said, “Once you’ve dressed, and before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take at least one thing off.” Sometimes less is more, and simple is the way to go.
In an age where things are so often bigger, better, and downright fancier, we develop stars in our eyes which yearn for more, always more. Evermore. In all the circus of ambition, it’s so easy to forget the true heart behind what we do and why. In the end, it’s all about love and as long as you have that, you can leave the house knowing you’re clothed in the only thing that truly matters.
This blissful outdoor engagement inspiration captured by Ivory+Bliss is an embodiment of just this. Simple. Love.
From the photographer, Ivory+Bliss:
“Simple and in love. This engagement shoot couldn’t have been more sweet. We wanted a shoot created for the attendees of our first ever workshop, The Ivory+Bliss Workshop, hosted in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, that was solely focused on a couple, and the fun spirited love that they shared. BHLDN‘s floral maxi dress, paired with her finance’s pastel toned shirt and khaki pant allowed our couple to feel relaxed and enjoy the moment.”
