sometimes less really is more.

If you know me at all you know that I am
a “more is more” kind of girl.
But sometimes less is more – especially when it comes to styling.  
Such is the case with these photos that I styled for Ace Summer School a couple months ago.  No jewelry, simple pretty hair and no other props aside from my rusty old bicycle and poppies from my backyard.  But, I love the look.  
Perhaps I’ll be changing my tune…maybe less really is more.

  1. GORGEOUS! love those poppies, that bike, her outfit, her hair… okay, I love it all! Nice work!

  2. I think you could be on to something. Beautiful!

  3. Cute! I am definitely a less is more kind of girl. Miss you friend!

  4. Those are really pretty! I feel like a lot of styling is over the top, but this is simple and beautiful.

    And I am so jealous that you have poppies in your backyard 😉

  5. check out those flowers! beauties 🙂

  6. Wow these are gorgeous.

  7. These are so beautiful Lauren! Is it weird of me to say “I’m proud of you”? Hahahaha.

  8. I love the simplicity. Very beautiful indeed.

  9. I love simplicity in styling. It is timeless. I am always remembered of any 80’s photos where more is more and how much that gets made fun of now. I would never want that to happen!!

  10. less is more, more than not. great pictures.

  11. The photos look great, I love that bike!
