Friday Favorites: August Accessories

Sometimes the only way to spice up an outfit - especially in the hot summer - is with accessories. They're so great because they come in all shapes and sizes. Don't want to wear super heavy pants? Throw on a light bracelet! Don't know what to wear to that convention? Substitute that convention pass as a necklace! Too sunny to go outside? Wear those sunglasses, girl!

Here are a couple photos from this week that show off some adorable accessories that people are wearing and creating during this August month!

This ADORABLE oval engagement ring looks so freakin' cute with these nails! The sparkle of the jewel with the glitter in the nail polish? To die for!

With the seasons getting ready to change, and my planner starting to allow me to have days off, I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on where exactly I want Amanda Vick Creative to go. I truly LOVE the niche I fell into of Blogger Photography. It feels super unique and special to me and I love that! I love working with bloggers, being introduced to new brands, collaborating with local lovelies, and everything else the idea encompasses. BUT, at the same time, I have SO MANY ideas always floating around in my head, that I reeeeeeally need to get out. A couple months ago I put out a post with my ten dream sessions and honestly, not a ton of them stuck, which hurts my heart because those super fun, creative, pushing the envelope type stuff is what I want to be doing, not taking a simple straight on photo of your new earrings (no offense). I want to go travel to a new exhibit in Chicago to feature your new love for yellow. I want to go to a quiet forrest to set off some smoke bomb and see what happens, I want to visit a state I never thought I’d go to and try something new, I want to get lost in an idea that maybe won’t work out but was super fun to try, and I want to do all that WHILE working with all my blogger babes because that’s what I love doing. SO! Let’s try again, I narrowed down my top ten to my top four ideas and guys, my soul NEEDS these, so, I’m offering them all at a discounted rate! ONE : a bathtub filled with flowers and a bottle of champagne, I say heck yes! TWO : were on the beach, jumping waves in a super pretty dress. Yes, you’re going to get wet. Yes, it’s going to be soooooo worth it. THREE : I see a room full of balloons and a neon sign. (May have stollen this from the @khloekardashian baby shower.) FOUR : string lights hanging from tall trees, and you dancing around like it’s a totally natural scene. So darlings, whose with me? These can be for bloggers, couples, anyone! All supplies will be covered by me, all ya gotta do it show up as your natural glowing self. Send me a DM to book. 📷| @katieewilsonnn

Obsessing over how beautiful and elegant this bride was 😍

What better way to accessorize on your wedding day than with a flowing veil? It will effortlessly give you that glowing look you see everyone sport on their wedding day.

Also what other season is summer other than convention season?! Check out this sweet merch from DefCon 26. This is a convention pass a graphic designer would be proud to wear! 😉
