Lauren’s new spring Blooming Leopold lookbook is out, and Drew and I were excited to be able to help out with it. We went to Nashville last weekend and headed over to Lauren’s house super early on Sunday. Our brother-in-law Neil made us blueberry bread and expresso, and we met our model Maya, whose hair is so naturally perfect that we didn’t have to do a single thing to it. Amazing.
Drew shot these photos at Cumberland Park, a new park on the riverfront that is probably really busy on hot summer days, but that at 8 AM on a cool Sunday was practically empty. It was sunny and cheerful, and it looked like spring out even if it didn’t exactly feel like it.
I always love Lauren’s clothes, but this one has to be my favorite collection of hers so far. She used old shibori techniques as well as natural dyes like indigo and onion skins for some subtle, unique pieces. And the necklaces are handmade too. You can find it all in Lauren’s Etsy shop this evening.
