Love Notes

We wanted to kick off the week with an absolutely stunning editorial beach session by photographer Tec Petaja and the stylists at Mimi & Taylor. The backdrop? A serene stretch of white sand in Carmel Valley, California. Mimi & Taylor fill us in on their inspiration behind the magical setting:

"We wanted to express an effortless, free-spirited grace and be at one with nature's beauty. We looked to the natural hues and tones of the sand and sea in selecting fashion pieces to bring our vision to life."
