Summertime Sadness

It's that time of year again... when summer starts winding down and we all start resetting our lives for fall & winter.   Luckily in SoCal we get an extension on summer wether we like it or not.  This means the Lana albums can remain on repeat, for now.  This is a shoot I did for my good friend Haydee to get through the summer bummers and we truly had a blast!  Haydee is a long-time dancer and loves her curvy figure and wanted to do a new shoot that was playful & beach-appropriate but still sexy & romantic.  I paired her cool Cali crop-top find with a beautiful & comfortable pair of floral Hanky Panky panties and what would seem an unlikely match became a match made in heaven!  While this styling look isn't necessarily perfect for everyone or every body, I love playing with non-lingerie items like t-shirts & sweaters to accentuate different elements of women's figures.   

What's your ideal beach shoot?  Let us know in the comments, we'd love to hear your inspirations and favorite beach locations!
