I’ve known Stacie since college, when we both went to Florida Atlantic University (go Owls) and wore trendy little outfits while working at Abercrombie & Fitch. Our cares at the time were: going the beach, boys, a little bit of school, and all the new clothes we were going to spend the entirety of our small paychecks on lol. Hanging out with her as an adult was cool and weird all at the same time, like it is any time you see someone you haven’t seen in a long time and now you’re both in a different stage of life. She’s married, has two beautiful little boys, and a booming social media presence with her lifestyle blog Will Work For Fashion (if you don’t follow her yet, check out her inspiring Instagram profile!)
So one day, right before moving to Chicago we thought heck, let’s go do a family session together. She looked stunning (but she always did) and I’m not gonna lie, looking like this after two babies is what got my butt to OrangeTheory lol. Girl, you’re rocking motherhood. Her littles, Jackson & Phoenix wore adorable little outfits from James Vincent Designs (and omg, if you haven’t heard of them yet check out their Insta because you will die. I legit want children just so I can put them in these cute outfits,) and we strolled around an empty Florida beach until the sun came down.
Stace, I’m really glad we kept in touch and I hope we continue to do so. Seeing your little family grow online makes me want to take a thousand more pictures of all of you 🙂
