In early spring, Bhane gathered several bloggers, and digital influencers, from around the San Francisco Bay Area to participate in a shoot for their summer 2016 campaign. The campaign took place in San Francisco, and mirrored a similar shoot conducted in India. Both photo sessions featured pieces from Bhane’s summer 2016 collection.

I wore this Bhane denim dress for the shoot, which I absolutely adore! It is a simple, classic, chambray sheath. It can be worn alone for the warm summer months, or layered in the spring, or fall season. I love how simple it is! It is perfect for featuring chunky necklaces, layered necklaces, or even a funky belt! Mental note: must find funky belt!

Bhane’s summer collection is truly inspired. It features pieces made from lightweight fabrics in soft hues, which work perfectly with denim, cotton twills, and other summer fabrics. All of the tops, bottoms, and dresses can be layered, or mixed and matched. Love!

For the photo-shoot, I wore two necklaces layered by Bhane. They were so beautiful! I am sad they did not come home with me. The circle pendant was fabulous! It was really fun meeting the designer, and learning all about Bhane! I had been unfamiliar with the brand before the photo-shoot, so the whole experience was amazing. I love learning about fashionable, wearable new brands!

In the photos taken by Bhane, I wore flat, black creepers for a street-style look. I have found at home, I love wearing the dress with wedges. I love how these espadrille wedges add some summery spice to the Bhane denim dress. I also love how my Mansur Gavriel handbag looks with this dress. It would also pair well with a summer tote!

bhane photoshoot san francisco

Bhane came to San Francisco to shoot their upcoming collection with local bloggers, and influencers. It was a fun chance to meet the designer in person, meet other local bloggers, and be part of an organized, large photoshoot!

I wore a denim dress by Bhane for the shoot which is the perfect closet staple for spring, and summer. I can’t wait to get the photos to share with you!

My favorite local coffee shop is actually a chocolate bar! Snake & Butterfly in Campbell offers their own in-house specialty chocolate, yummy gelato, hot cocoa, and of course, coffee. I always grab gelato, and a hot cocoa when I am in Campbell with my kids, or alone. It is a great place to enjoy a treat, and relax with a good book. How often do we have those moments?

I have been wearing this skirt quite often. On this day, I was a little tired so I paired it with my all-time favorite, go-to flats, my favorite handbag for spring, and a comfy tee.
