Independence Never Looked So Good | Santa Clara Los Gatos Holiday Boudoir Photography

Happy July 4th!!

 

 

Independence Day is the day we celebrate stickin’ it to the King of England! Just like the other countries of the world that celebrate freedom, we wrap ourselves in our flag and blow things to smithereens. It’s also a day where the adventures seem endless. There is always somewhere to go and something to do on the 4th of July! So I guess the only question is, what do I wear? Here are some inspirational ideas that will make you one hell of a patriot.

When thinking of what to put together always think red white and blue. It’s your freedom to wear whatever colors you want, but it’s always fun to show your pride loudly and proudly. And plus you can’t go wrong with this color combination. Leave it to a woman, Betsy Ross, to make sure our colors were going to always be fashionable for generations!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let your pride fly as freely as the flag and represent the U.S.A with class. Always feel free to celebrate how you like, but please party safely and enjoy celebrating the independence of our great country by watching a light show blowing up the sky! Have a Happy Independence Day!

Face the Summer Looking Your Best!!

 

 

It’s time to think light and bright now that the sun is shining and the beach is calling you. The greatest thing about summertime is the kaleidoscope of colors hiding in your closet can now come out to play! So have some fun checking out all the latest trends in hair, makeup, and nails that are sure to make for a sizzling season.

dec_border

 

As always, let’s start from the top…

 

Hair!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hair is the most empowering way to express your summer self and bring out your brightness! With just the right style, color and accessories you will have the attention of the whole beach. Go for pastel colors, put in a stylish braided updo, and put some glitter along the part and hairline and you are ready to step out as the top hair trend of the season.

dec_border

 

Makeup!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Makeup is a woman’s war paint no matter what the season. She’s gotta slay when she steps out that door. Since the summer is all sun you have to think of how that hot look is going to protect you from the hot sun. Yes, I know, you’ve heard this from me once before. But it’s true, summer sun and skin damage go hand in hand if you don’t take the proper measures. So, of course, UV protection and waterproof is a must have every summer.

dec_border

 

Nails!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My favorite way to express myself, especially in the summer, is through my nails. Because sometimes I just don’t have the time to put on that cute summer make up r take a long time getting the hair just right. I know I’m not the only one who feels that way. So, this summer, go bright, go bold and always have a blast from hands to toes. Stay with the current fashioned by going with nautically themed nails and make the ocean come to you wherever you go.

dec_border

 

 

Now that you know the way to a flawless face this summer…

 

 

 

 

Let that stunning shine through with the perfect combination of beautifying cosmetics that will make you hotter than any summer!!

Make a Splash with The Trendiest Summer Accessories!!

 

 

Often times summer accessories have a dual function; protection and fashion. You cant have the most fun in the sun without covering all your bases and looking damn good while doing it! So, complete that out of this world look with any one of the latest seasonal trends.

dec_border

Let’s start at the top…..

 

Hats!!

 

 

 

 

A stylish hat is an absolute must for those hot summer months! Be as sporty or as chic as you wish and still have the best protection for your head and face. And don’t be intimidated by a large brim. It’s too fabulous to pass up. and the bigger the better.

dec_border

 

Sunglasses!!

 

 


 

 

Look at your summer through rose-colored specs and keep those eyes safe with a jazzy pair of sunglasses. UV protection is not just important for your skin. Your eyes need that same care too. And since the colors and styles are numerous go ahead and have a different pair for every summer day that shines bright like a diamond.

dec_border

 

Scarfs/Wraps

 

 

 

 

 

 

Scarfs can be an exciting changeup to your summer look in so many ways. Wrap your head and create a chic way to shield you from the sun. Or even wear it as a shawl, cover-up or skirt to go from beach fashion to street fashion in a snap. Go for bold prints and loud colors to spice it up even more.

dec_border

 

Jewelry!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are just so many wonderful creations to choose from! I cant just pick one that is the most fun to wear. They all add that special something your summer outfit so desperately needed. Gold and natural stones are always in style, but this year’s fun trend is full body, hand, and feet decore. This trend truly accentuates the best of you while feeling comfortable and unique.

dec_border

 

Phone Cases!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

The phone is not only a phone, it’s a great part of everyday life. With use being such daily necessity it’s only natural to accessories it considering how much we show it off during a selfie alone. A phone is an extension of ourselves and should reflect that in the most fun ways possible.

dec_border

 

Purses!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think I speak for every woman when I say that a purse is your greatest lifeline! How else are we supposed to carry our whole summer around wherever we go? Explore colorful patterns and quirky designs. Go big for the beach or small for the evening and always stylish everywhere in between.

dec_border

 

Let’s end with the best part…

Shoes!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The perfect pair of shoes is the most adventurous way to celebrate summer in all its colorful glory! Whether it’s a pair of pumps or a classic flip flop summer will never be boring when you wear the latest trends in summer footwear. Rainbow is all the rage in shoes right now. You don’t have to choose just one shade, choose them all and live your best life.

dec_border

 

Now that we’ve covered everything from head to toe…

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s a time to be bold, a time to be brave, and a time to be free. Let the Summer, and all the wonderful accessories it has to offer, take your breath away!

Sexy Summer

 

 

Summer is right around the corner and that means being able to pass off your sexy lingerie as a cute outfit idea! It just takes the right style to make a sexy statement!

 

 

If you didn’t know you could wear your beautiful underpinnings as the main focal point of your outfit, and actually get away with it, then you are about to be pleasantly and fashionably shocked. Here are some great ideas that will make your summer sizzle.

dec_border

 

Classic Bra

 

 

 

 

 

Be as casual or as fancy as you want with no regrets. It’s the most freeing feeling! Take that stunning bra out of your delicates drawer. You know the one I’m talking about; the one you thought you could only wear for intimate eyes only. Well, it’s time to match it up with some cute jeans or cut off shorts for a more casual look or a flawless pin skirt for a fancy night out. The choice is yours.

dec_border

 

Sports Bra

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now, believe me, I get it. You’re more of a work-out kinda woman. There are just as many options. Yes, even a fancier style. Still, use that sexy bra, but pair it with a scandalous pair of sports shorts and heels for that perfect sporty-chic look. Don’t be afraid to wear your full workout gear from head to toe as your sexy statement so you can show off that body and how you got it.

dec_border

 

Lace Bralettes and Crops

 

 

 

 

Lace is elegant, bralettes are comfortable and corset style crops are to die for. Whether you pair it with a classic skirt or even a ripped up pair of jeans you will always stand out for your exquisite sense of fashion and look the best of the best so effortlessly. Make sure to complete this timeless and trendy look with the perfect jacket for when the night gets just a bit chilly. Although if the night goes right you won’t need it.

dec_border

 

Satin Corset Crop

 

 

 

 

 

Well, lace may be elegant, but satin feels so very luxurious. This is one of my favorites when spicing up a summer outfit. Its durability makes for long nights of partying the night away and always feeling secure in your garment. The vibrant colors and fearless prints are endless and so is the confidence it gives you. And of course, its ability to go from casual to chic just by changing one item is what truly makes this look magnificent.

dec_border

 

Corsets

 

 

 

 

 

Corsets only favor the brave. Do you have what it takes to wear this literally breath-taking garment with every style? Guaranteed you will always look flawless and stop everyone dead in their tracks. Make it delicate or sporty. Make it rock and roller or fantasy princess but always make this ancient lingerie your own. So take a deep breath and let the corset do the rest of the seducing.

dec_border

 

Bodysuits

 

 

 

 

 

Bodysuits are beyond beautiful! This garment’s crowning achievement is its match of form and function with a simple and sophisticated result every time, no matter how low key you’ve styled yourself. Feel as flexible and as delicate as a ballerina all while taking over the world one fabulous day at a time. For a flare of the dramatic go for a sheer style adorned with the most glitz, you can ever desire. This look will make you the showstopper you always had deep in you.

dec_border

 

Slip Dresses

 

 

 

 

 

The final idea that is the top trend right now and going forward into the summer is the silky, sensational, versatile and the always the most comfortable way to fancy up even the most casual of styles. The slip dress! It isn’t just for wearing under your dresses and skirts to prevent clinging. Now it’s the sleekest way to be comfortable without sacrificing even an inch of chic. How can one make this look even grander? By pairing it with fur! Faux or fine you will never cease to amaze everyone with your timeless charm. The longer the better for a more vintage magnificence. Feel as all eyes are on you, you glamorous bombshell!

dec_border

 

 

 

Today’s forward fashions have freed us from the constraints of normality. We don’t have to be incredibly modest and we don’t have to burn the bras in protest. We can have a middle ground too. The best way to make that happen is by showing everyone what these undergarments are for; they are for whatever we feel good in. They are to make us feel beautiful for ourselves, not just our special someone in private. Remember, no matter what, you are ALWAYS that special someone above ALL others.

 

dec_border

 

Your personality comes first in your fashion. Make sure whatever style you choose is as unforgettable as you are.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the awesome women holding the world together!

And this post is dedicated to my favorite thing to wear on this special day: PJs!

I myself am a mother and love to celebrate the day I became someone’s entire world. The way I like to celebrate it is not necessarily by going out, but instead staying in and getting into the comfiest pajamas I possibly can. Here are some of my favorite looks for my favorite day!

dec_border

 

Lingerie Robes

 

 

 

 

I know I am not the only woman in the world who loves a good robe and wears it as often as possible. No matter what you wear underneath or the material of robe it always brings extra comfort to an already enjoyable outfit.

dec_border

 

Mix and Match Separates

 

 

 

 

Not only is this the coziest it is also the most fun. You can mix and match styles and colors and you can even have quirky messages on the PJs. It’s the best day to have a blast and express the ‘you’ your kid loves, no matter what.

dec_border

 

Pajama Shorts

 

 

 

 

Whether you mix and match or have the perfect set, PJ shorts are breathable for those warmer mother’s days and always comfortable. Bring a touch of elegance to lounging around the house by choosing a satin set.

dec_border

 

Classic 2 Piece Pajama Set

 

 

 

 

These classic styles are not just for men anymore. We ladies have taken it over and then some. There are even some prints you can wear out and about with a pair of gorgeous heels and fun belt because being lazy can be very chic.

dec_border

 

Cotton Dress

 

 

 

 

The best way to be the most casual is a nice long cotton PJ dress. Lay around with ease. Have breakfast in bed brought to you. Maybe even sleep in just a little bit longer before your special Mother’s Day Brunch.

dec_border

 

Satin Dress

 

 

 

 

Or maybe, just maybe, you two got rid of the kids and want to celebrate with Netflix and chill. Or if you’re like me you are taking advantage of a childless night with good old fashioned sexy time. And we all know sexy time is more fun with a silky lingerie dress. Well, even if you decide to mix the two together you’ll be comfortable and sexy always.

dec_border

 

 

No matter what you decide to wear it is all about you and what makes you happy. so go ahead, put it on, be nice and cozy, and enjoy your Mother’s Day.

The Beautiful Bra

 

 

We concentrated on the ‘bottom’ now let’s go up to the ‘top’! BRAS! Though not every man is a breast guy, no man can resist a sexy bra. Matching it with your personality gives the girls a fun boost!

 

 

 

Breasts are a cherished symbol of femininity not only to men but to women as well. I mean, they are on our bodies. It feels good when the ladies look fabulous and the right bra always does the trick. You can be as sporty or demure and as bold or provocative as you wish. Shining your personality though, that’s what it’s all about! The choices in style, color and fabrics are endless!

 

You have your bottoms covered.

Now let’s find the perfect bra for your personality!

dec_border

 

Classic Lace

 

 

Lace harkens back to a sweeter feeling but stirs sensuality all the same. The classic fabric is, by far, the most versatile. Most lingerie is either entirely made of or trimmed with lace. The designs one could make with it are never-ending.

 

Sheer Lace

\

 

 

Sexy and simple, but always elegant. Sometimes it’s okay not to leave much to the imagination.

 

Exposed Lace

 

To show more is even sexier and even more jaw-dropping. Plunge as deep as your vixen side tells you.

dec_border

 

Now let’s check out different styles often done in lace, but can be done in different materials such as velvet, satin and cotton.

 

Bralettes

 

 

 

 

Bralettes are the best for its absolute wearability. You can be in the boudoir or out on the town with a simple jacket, the right location and the perfect someone.

dec_border

 

Floral

 

 

 

Floral prints bring a natural sense of confidence with its bright colors. You can be classic or bold with the design and fabrics and mix and match the panty color to coordinate with the many hues of the flowers.

dec_border

 

Let’s Be Wild! I love to throw in something random and exciting.

In my opinion, the boldest statement would be…

 

Feathers

 

 

Have the most fun you can with your look! This is just a peek into what my personality would be. Feathers are a show stopper; theatrical and dramatic! Even if it’s just a touch on the trim the emotions that come from it are the same.

dec_border

 

Now, talk about sexy! These bras are so amazing. But now we’ll look at a darker more complex side.

 

Leather

 

 

 

 

It is commonly seen as fetish lingerie but it is so much more. just like a bralette, it can be worn in the bedroom and out and about, with some creative styling of course. It adds a dark feel to your chic venere.

dec_border

 

Straps

 

 

 

 

This very daring and complex design is equally as versatile in wearability and equally as dark and mysterious as the feeling leather provokes.

dec_border

 

Leather isn’t the only way to show your dark side. But maybe that dark side has a little bit more of a fighter. The only way to show this side of you is…

 

Chain

 

 

 

 

Yes, like leather, chains are popular in the fetish community, but it also brings a warrior princess vibe to the look, which is so empowering either way. It is often lightweight and exposes all the right parts of your goddess body.

dec_border

 

Let’s throw in some sporty comfort. Yes, sporty is sexy and comfortable is always preferable.

 

 

Sport

 

 

 

Renown designers have really gone above and beyond in the science of the sports bra. They are as fashionable as they are functional. They can also come in vibrant prints and colors of all kinds and are extremely flattering on every body type.

dec_border

 

Now we should take a look back at another classic…

 

Satin

Besides lace, satin is the most used fabric in creating lingerie. It can come in any color and any print. Satin is also stronger than lace and can serve as an amazing foundation for adding embellishments to the bra.

dec_border

 

What kind of embellishments, you ask?

 

Rhinestones and Studs

 

Rhinestones and studs are the definitions of complex, but the glitz and glamour are vivacious and spectacular. Turn into a showgirl for your sexy moment and let your beauty shine as stunning as your gems.

dec_border

 

Another amazing embellishment to add elegance and grace to your brassiere…

 

Pearls

 

 

 

Pearls are truly exquisite and add a certain softness to the body. With the proper foundation, you can put as many pearls as you want! Thankfully pearls are delicate enough to be sewn onto lace and other thinner fabrics.

dec_border

 

 

When choosing your perfect bra, always remember; it’s about you and ONLY YOU. You are the only one who knows what the girls look good in. Make em look sexy!

dec_border

Whatever your personality, there’s a bra for that!

What To Wear Wednesday | Los Gatos San Jose Boudoir Photography

 

The Perfect Panty

 

 

  With so many different wardrobe choices for a boudoir shoot, it could be a bit overwhelming. To help you make the best decision we’ll focus on one attribute at a time.

It’s all about showing off your best assets and being comfortable in your own skin. The particular asset we are showing off today is the posterior and the beautiful panties that could go on it. Yes, there are still so many choices, but at least all we have to worry about is that terrific tush!

There is a panty for every personality; let’s find yours.

Lace Up Panties

 

Weather they lace from the front or the back, this ethereal design is always flattering and flirty with a breath of elegance. It comes in an unending array of colors, styles, and fabrics.

Sporty Panties

 

Cozy and casual can be sexy and seductive. Sporty styles not only give you unbelievable comfort, but it also lifts you in the most flattering places. It makes you feel as flexible as an acrobat and most importantly it will make you feel free and at ease, while doing killer poses.

Strappy Panties

 

 

 

Going with a strappy design shows how bold you can be with your sexual heat. Its intricate style is often times the most visually intimate and favorable to almost every figure.

High Waist Panties

 

 

 

High waisted styles are so versatile and comfortable without sacrificing elegance. Designs range from a vivacious vintage to a marvelous modern and shows as much or as little as you want.

Floral Print Panties

 

Floral Panties are delicate and exquisite. They bring a very natural essence to your derriere and can be as sophisticated or as simple as you want. It wears well with a lace trim to accent its beauty. Fabrics and cuts are quite variable, but the elegance is always the same.

dec_border

 

Fantasy Panties

 

 

 

This is the wow factor! The fantasy would come true with a lovely string of pearls, a salacious peekaboo or a revealing chain ensemble. Whichever is chosen, each is unique and the most provocative of statements.

dec_border

 

Funtime Panties

 

Sometimes it’s fun to leave the elegance at the door and have a little fun with your panties. Bring out that good humor, inner geek or even just the downright naughty side of you.

dec_border

 

Animal Inspired Panties

 

 

 

Though leopard is a true classic when it comes to animal inspired panties, there are other creatures in this world and that means there are many creations that these animals have influenced such as feathers and fur. Or go outside the box with peacock print instead. The choices are numerous and all gorgeous!

dec_border

 

Classic Garter Style Panties

 

It’s always best to end with a classic. The timeless enchantment this garment elicits is undeniable. It accentuates every curve, flatters every figure, and truly drips sex and sophistication. The style will never die for exactly these reasons.

dec_border

 

Final Touch

 

 

Whatever style you choose to accentuate your asset, keep it true to you. No matter the personality, there’s a panty for that.
