Downtown Salt Lake Shoot

Photographed and edited by me / Model: Nadya (Femininia)

Our trip to Utah was soooo busy!!! I worked primarily everyday whether it was teaching at Pure Barre Draper or shooting pictures in downtown Salt Lake. It's no secret that lately I've been getting more and more into photography. While I don't consider myself at all to be a professional, I enjoy capturing beauty through a lens, and the story it tells.  

On this day I was able to enjoy the company of one of my besties Nadya.
Times like these are rare, and I hold them close to my heart. I know people say that, but I truly mean it. 
Spending the afternoon with her took me back to a time where life was carefree, and we spent our days rollerblading through the halls of our schools, birthday pranks, girls camp, laughing to the point where tears would spill out of my eyes, getting lost in conversations until we'd pass out in our beds, and watching one another grow up. What I've learned with being down in arizona is that true friends like Nadya are rare, and I am lucky to have her and my other besties in my life! Sisters forever!!!

Couple Session: Maddie and Zach

Photographed and edited by me

These two are my absolute favorite! It's so hard to believe that my lil sis Maddie has been married for 6 months (wedding last seen here)!!! It's so weird to see that someone you watched grow up become a young adult, and make adult decisions. While I didn't know Zach very well when they first got married, I couldn't imagine a more perfect match for Maddie!!! I'm so excited that he's apart of the family, and that their love in truly inspiration and beautiful!

Wednesday Feature: Feminina

Photographed and Edited by Me

Just call me miss camera girl. Yesterday I was busy from 7:30 a.m to 2:30 p.m with photo shoots. With living in Arizona I forgot how to dress for "actual" winter. I brought two coats with me; one wool dress coat, and a light weight jacket. Lets just say I was fa-fa-freeezing my little fingers off in 28 degree weather. Even though no hot coco could warm up my body, I had a blast shooting pictures all day. I was so honored that one of my besties Nadya would model for me on yesterday's shoot.This girl is beautiful both inside and out! Make sure you check out her blog Feminina!

Oi a todos! (Hello everyone)! My name is Nadya Friaca Cox, and I am the creator of Feminina. I was so excited when Jessica offered to introduce me to her readers on her fabulous blog, because not only is Jessica one of my very best friends, we also share many similar tastes and interests! From middle school, high school, and eventually rooming together in college, Jess and I have shared the best of times with one another! Jessica is the most beautiful and genuine person, and I am so grateful to have her friendship in my life... Not to mention her style prowess and fitness tips ;)! 

     Feminina is a destination for all things beauty!  I created Feminina to facilitate a more independent platform for managing my modeling opportunities, while sharing my personal insight on fashion, beauty, and wellness. Needless to say, I love all things feminine! As much as I love all the glitz and glamour that comes with femininity, I also believe that beauty isn't just skin deep. It is important to me to cultivate inspiration for true beauty, and to share stories of those inspirations with my readers. 

In addition to the fabulous J Petite blog, check out www.fem-i-nina.com (link to my blog :)! - For the beautiful woman, inside and out. I hope you enjoy it!

Tchau Tchau, Nadya

Prepster

Dress: Sheinside c/o / Tights: Nordstrom / Shoes: Via spiga (ON SALE) / Arm Candy: J.Crew, Baublebar, J.Crew (old), Nordstrom / Bag: Rebecca Minkoff / Sunnies: Wildfox / Lips:YSL-Red Indocile

Hello Utah! Yesterday Todd, Django, and I made the long drive up to Utah for the holidays. As I was packing for our trip home I noticed that I packed tons of sweater dresses! Even though there's a chill in the air, dresses seem to be my current fashion fav! I can't even tell you how obsessed I am with this sweater dress from Sheinside. I love how it has the collar giving the dress that preppy school girl feel, but keeps it flirty with the flared skirt. I'm so excited to be home to spend time with the fam, celebrate my birthday, decorate my dad's tree, cookie party, hang with bebe regs, and enjoy a white Christmas (hopefully)!

Petite Review: When I received this dress in the mail I got the waist taken in a TON, sleeves taken up, and arms taken in.

Sequins For The Birthday Girl

Top: Trouve (ON SALE AND IT SERIOUSLY IS MY FAVORITE WHITE TEE) / Necklace: J.Crew (SOLD OUT similar here) / Sunnies: Kate Spade / Bag: Gigi New York c/o / Skirt: TJMAXX last week (similar here + here) / Shoes: Steve Madden / Lips: MAC-Fresh Moroccan 
There's nothing like sequin glamor that makes you feel like a princess on your birthday. 

I found this amazing skirt last week at TJMAXX. Now there's one thing you must know about me, I'm not a good bargain shopper at ALL! Whenever I go into places like the Rack or TJMAXX I feel the clutter gives me anxiety. #thestruggleisreal. I was going into TJMAXX to pick up a picture frame, and this skirt was staring at me across the isle. When I looked at the price tag that read $30 I was sold! I immediately texted my sister in law to tell her that I've become a maxinista ;) This was a big moment for me feeling like a bargain shopper, but was immediately reversed when I bought some full priced Current Elliot jeans online. Girlfriend tried.

Back to the skirt. I knew this skirt would be the perfect piece for my birthday dinner with the hubs last Friday. Everything was perfect to the t. My two favorite birthday moments were: receiving a card from my mom that was overnighted from Utah, and enjoying a lovely dinner at Chelsea's Kitchen in Scottsdale with Todd. 

Here's to another birthday, and another year "young." ;)
