Pieces of Him | San Jose Los Gatos Bay Area Boudoir Photography

Trying to think of a way to make your photoshoot with Boudoir Coterie more intimate? Try adding a little piece of him to the shoot. Some clients have chosen this simple
method and the results are always stunning. One way to wow him is as easy as walking to his part of the closet and as sensual as putting on his favorite dress shirt. Use the smell of him to inspire you during your session.

Miss J exudes comfort and passion with mixing and matching: a soft dress shirt of his and touch of her with a perfect lingerie set.

Another way to spice it up is with an object of sentimental value. This is a great way to add him in to your photoshoot and it gives him a complete shot of everything he loves. Miss S is rocking out her session with her husband’s awesome guitar. This is one of the sexiest examples of heating up a photoshoot with a little piece of him.

 

Need just one more idea? Think of something you both love together: something that makes you laugh together or even something you play together. Miss A is making it a slight more personal by adding items intended as an inside joke. They may live busy lives but they find a way to laugh over these everyday items.

Miss V is representing a common love she and her husband have for volley ball. When you work up a sweat together you stay together and always know how to have fun.

During the reveal you’ll instantly be brought back to when it all began. Sometimes it is that simple to make him see the real you: the real sexy you!

I hate to be the one to break it to you, but swimsuit season is right around the corner. Today I wanted to highlight swimsuits. Recently in the news there has been some praise for Target for using plus size models in their swimsuit campaigns. I wanted to share some of their plus size suits I found online.

I love Target. It’s convenient, there’s one on every corner, and they have cute stuff. I enjoy featuring things that you can get locally; that when you see it you can go to your local store and try it on for yourself. So please, if you see something here today that you like, see if your local store has it and go try it on! Take a few sizes into the fitting room with you as every clothing manufacturer cuts their sizes differently.

First off I’ll show you some one pieces. Not everyone is comfortable in a bikini or tankini, so these suits are for you if you are more comfortable in a 1 piece.

plus size 1 piece

 

If there’s one thing that you should have learned by now from me, it’s about adding detail to your look. I love these suits above for their detail. The white crocheting around the bust is amazing. The black crochet and the straps of the top suit add that little bit extra, and I love the contrast of the solid black and the summery pattern in the left photo.
Ok, so what if a 2 piece is your style, but you prefer a tankini 2 piece rather than a bikini? Of course I’ve got you covered there as well.
plus size tankini

 

Summery colors, halter type straps, flowy comfortable fabric, and some extra glitz are why I chose these tankinis. I like that you can mix and match these pieces. There are many different styles of bottoms to choose from so you really can pick your own style and make it unique.
And for those that prefer a bikini, here’s my choices for you.
plus size 2 piece

 

The back of the top bikini?!!! Wow I love it. Again it’s just that little detail that really makes an outfit and a bathing suit is no different. I love the tropical print of the left suit and the contrast of the two different patterns of the right suit.
Most of us loath this upcoming swimsuit season, but get out there and try some different patterns on! Finding one that fits well, no matter what the size says on the label, will make you feel more comfortable. And finding one that is cute just adds to that!
What’s your favorite of the suits today? Do you prefer a patterned swimsuit or a solid color? Bikini, tankini or one piece?

I enjoy seeing what the current styles and trends are, not that I necessarily follow them. I’m very much a jeans and t-shirt girl, but today I’ve found a hot trend that I think I can pull off these upcoming warmer months.

Sneakers and a dress.

This ultra casual but still put together look screams comfort, but not wanting to wear your everyday jeans. There are so. many different ways to wear this trend too. See what I’ve found.

Sporty Chic

 

Summer

 

You can easily pair a maxi dress with some canvas sneakers for a casual put together summer look.
Maybe you’re the type of person who likes to add a pop of color to your outfit, well I’ve got you covered there! Do it with your shoes.
happy

 

Summer Night

 

Looking for an even more laid back look? Try pairing your cotton dress with some slip on sneakers.

Sneakers and dresses

 

Maybe none of these suit you, and that’s ok. Let me show you one more idea.

I think this is probably my favorite look. Makes me want to get a pair of black sneakers to pair with my black cotton dresses!
How do you like this style ladies? Is this something that you have worn in the past or can see yourself wearing this summer? How would you wear it?

We are officially in Spring and one spring trend I keep seeing around is colored denim. I love all the different colors and hues and colored denim can be very versatile in how you wear it. Today I’m going to show some different ways to wear colored denim.

Let’s start off with a gorgeous Spring color, Pink.

Untitled #1369

 

This beautiful dusty rose colored denim looks great paired with a soft pink blouse and a traditional blue denim jacket. And the dusty rose colored shoes really complete this look.
Of course there is always the soft, baby pink colored denim.
Spring Trend: Colored Denim

 

I love this soft color paired with this perfect Spring top. The color of the purse and the jeweled sandals complete this look.
This color also looks great paired with a white top.
Denim color pastel

 

With this outfit I would probably go with a different shoe, something strappy and fun.
Another gorgeous Spring color for denim is green. Beautiful Spring green obviously! I love this color, and pairing with a striped top is a perfect option.

Green denim looks great paired with this blue blazer too!

Coral is another fantastic color choice and is easy to pair with a variety of floral spring tops.

Spring doesn’t always have to be about soft, pastel colors though. This bold colored outfit is still a great option for Spring, and for colored denim.

Do you have any colored denim in your closet? What colors are they? What do you pair them with? Does this help you with new ways to wear colored denim? I look forward to hearing from you!

Sometimes it can be difficult to find lingerie that isn’t trendy or in style at the moment. These trends and styles don’t necessarily fit into everyone’s taste or even comfort level. So, have you ever thought about purchasing your lingerie from Etsy? Yup, I’m serious. These are hand made items and I can *almost* guarantee that with enough browsing you will find something that you will love. There are so many suggestions for lingerie when you search. Plus size, bridal, erotic, sexy and so many other suggestions to help you find what you are looking for.

Let me share some of my favorites I have found.

If you are looking for a bra and panty set, these ones caught my eye.

Etsy bra & panty sets

 

I love how the top right reminds me of a peacock; this is something different and really unique. The other two have a vintage feel to them. I love the satin and gorgeous jewel toned of the purple set and how the black set is a high waisted panty with that detail of the lace at the hip.
You know how I’m always talking about details really making the piece, I love the detail on these pieces.
Etsy lingerie sets

 

Look at the buttons on the top left set! It is the tiniest addition that can upgrade an outfit, even lingerie. The tiny little bows on the other pieces and the mix of fabrics is gorgeous detail too.
Etsy even has some gorgeous vintage pieces if today’s styles aren’t your cup of tea.

I wasn’t kidding when I said I can *almost* guarantee you will find something that suites you, whether it be for your upcoming boudoir shoot or for private eyes in your bedroom. Take a look around and show me what you found that you love. Can’t wait to see what you come up with.

If you know me, you know I love to wear jeans. I am fortunate enough to not have to wear a uniform everyday or have a dress code for work. I wear jeans every day. I am a very casual type dresser, but sometimes when I’m going out with my friends I like to look nice, who doesn’t! I still typically wear jeans, but wearing a nice blouse and adding some details is what is going to really change your look.

I wanna show you some styles I found while browsing around Polyvore.

Untitled #2137

 

I love this for a few different reasons. Beautiful colored jeans, a gorgeous white long tunic top, nice embellished sandals and of course accessories. The silver cuff bracelet is a perfect addition to this outfit and I think you could really pull off any pair of earrings.
// you can't see past my blinders //

 

If there’s a bit of a chill in the air, you can still pull off a sweater and a dressier look. Make sure you are choosing a nice sweater, like this knit soft green open front, paired with this incredibly soft pink blouse under helps to pull off this casual dressy jean look.
Untitled #2214

 

Maybe you’re needing a bit more of a dressier look, but it’s still a jean type event or dinner, pull out a gorgeous blouse and pair it with some high heels. Add in some nice earrings, a nice purse and I would add a bracelet, and you’re all set for a fun night out.
Denim & Blush

 

This last look is super causal, but not your t-shirt casual jean look. A nice pleated top can be great with jeans, and paired with some heeled sandals this look is a great choice for a night out or weekend event.
How do you like to dress up your jeans? A favorite blouse or pair of heels? Some special jewelry?

Holy cow, I’ve stumbled across a beautiful, delicate, romantic lingerie company, Amoralle. I’m so in love with these pieces, and more. I will warn you though, this is not a cost friendly line, but wait until you see! I’m so excited to share. Let’s look at some gowns first.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Eeek!! I really am loving this, in case I haven’t already said that. These amazing pieces would look great on any body type. There is such a soft, romantic feel to these. And the blush color is fantastic and would be great for a bridal shoot.

Next up let’s look at some bodysuits. So many to choose from!

 I love that all the garters are detachable for those who may not want to wear them. The lace again is so beautiful and delicate. I love how the neckline of the two black and sheer bodysuits are different to fit everyone’s style.

One of their special pieces that I came across is this

boudoir, boudoir coterie, lingerie, Amoralle

So pretty! I love it paired with the high waisted black panties but really you could pair it with anything.

You can visit the pieces I found here. Take a peek and tell me what you see that you love! Can’t wait to hear what you think about this brand and what your favorite pieces are.
