If you follow me on snapchat (noelleengel), you probably saw that on Friday, I decided to break my own blog rule of using props for outfit photos. I'm not sure why I've set this rule for myself, but I think it's mainly because I feel like a phony. "Oh you know, just taking a casual stroll through the park. And whad'ya know? I just happen to have this lovely bouquet of flowers on hand to compliment my outfit." It seems a bit contrived, but because I had to make a flower run anyway, I decided to just go with it and bring them along. They are gorgeous after all, which is why my camera roll has more pictures of the hydrangea than it does of me! I got stopped twice by people asking if Nate and I were newly engaged or getting married. We laughed and played along! I carried a similar bouquet on my wedding day, and it did feel sort of that same way all over again with the sun setting in the background. I wish I could get married all over again. 


  1. you look so pretty love the color palette in your look. Ah the rules we have, and yea you can do whatever you want it's your blog after-all lol.


  2. Love your neutral color palette AND the flowers. :) You look gorgeous as always.

  3. Love the beige and white combination, looks absolutely great. Also Hydrangeas are one of my fave flowers, they are just beautiful.

  4. LOL, that's so funny that people were asking if you just got married! I'm glad you let yourself break your own rule! I really do love every piece of this outfit! And you picked a great time of day to take the pictures too because the lighting is really pretty and adds to the whole effect. Very pretty Noelle!

  5. Thank you so much ladies! It's always fun to play dress up with a bouquet of flowers. I think I need to do it more often!

  6. You are absolutely gorgeous in this - more so than usual! And I love a good prop - the flowers seem appropriate with this look! And isn't it so funny the things people think?! I wonder what they were thinking see Jenna and me changing clothes inside and outside of our cars in the park last weekend!
