Summer is in full swing and it is hot!  And nothing keeps you cool and fresh like wearing white!  But those head-to-toe white looks featured on the runway can seem a little intimidating.  For Twelfth Year magazine, a print and digital magazine featuring the hottest style trends for 2015, we headed to Francesca's in the Promenade Shops at Centerra for advice.  We decided to add a dash of bold, bright color, keeping the sophistication of the all-white look with the addition of some fun pop!

"When dressing with Summer whites and bright, bold colors, pull together classic ladylike looks.  Think sweet, feminine and timeless.  Use accessories and jewelry in pop colors such as pink, cobalt and navy for a youthful feel," advised Amber Burton, Francesca's store manager.

As you can see below, CSP 2016 Senior Model Shawnea Pagat looks refreshing in a white skater dress from Francesca's.  The aqua and gold jewelry adds color and perfectly accents her breezy Summer look.  Instead of bright white shoes, Shawnea is wearing neutral bone pumps that are more versatile and keep the focus on her flirty white dress.

We kicked off our summer Senior Portrait Sessions for the Class of 2016 with Gabe Pagat from Fossil Ridge High School.  I am really excited to share his session as inspiration for high school senior boys!  Gabe rocked the prep guy style in button-down shirts from Polo and Tommy Hilfiger.  He mixed it up by alternating denim and khaki pants with a pair of walking shorts.  I love this style for men and boys!  Because of its origin in sports (button down shirts were designed for polo riders), the button down shirt is the least dressy shirt collar making them a perfect casual choice for any occasion.  We always recommend that our clients bring 3 to 4 clothing choices and we will select the best location to compliment their style.  For Gabe's style, we chose the alleys of Old Town Fort Collins and then headed to a natural area to match his love of the outdoors. 

The day after we captured his Senior Photos, Gabe flew to Hawaii to visit family and spend the summer eating fresh pineapple on the beach.   Yep, I am a little bit jealous.  He will return in time to start his senior year playing on FRHS's Boys Tennis Team.  As he begins to fill out college applications, his favorite quote and advice for younger teens is "Keep Moving Forward."  Wise words, Gabe!

Doesn't everybody love the Boho style?  This casual look inspired by the 1970's is comfortable and stylish - who doesn't love that?  So, of course, the Boho look is included in this year's edition of Twelfth Year magazine, a look book published by Cindy Short Photography.  

Twelfth Year is loaded with tips on how to wear the hottest trends of 2015 but for more insight on how to wear the beautiful Boho trend, I went to an expert.  Brooke Mynatt, store manager for the Fort Collins location of BUCKLE in the Foothills Mall, describes the Boho Style as "her absolute favorite trend." 

This style, described by Brooke as "carefree and effortless", has been popular for the last several years buoyed by the popularity of music festivals.  For 2015, Boho has taken on a more upscale look making it the perfect style to wear on date night or to a dressy event.  The Boho look is by far the most popular look I see high school seniors bring to the studio for their Senior Portraits.

So how do you put together a great Boho outfit?  Maxi skirts are one of Brooke's favorite staples because it is so easy to wear year round.  "They look great with a fitted tank and a beautiful sandal or heel during the summer and with a cropped sweater, jacket or blazer and boots during chillier days," says Brooke.

Another popular Boho piece is the loose, flowy top.  (I am personally in love with this look.)   Brooke suggests pairing these with a dark wash high-waisted, skinny or straight pair of jeans for a polished, yet easy ensemble.  Want to create your own unique look? Brooke recommends playing with layers and textures to keep your look interesting and unique.

Accessories are a big part of the Boho Style!  You will find fun floppy hats, headbands, head scarves and leather belts as well as floral crowns and abundant metal jewelry.  Brooke recommends playing with different necklaces, mixing long and short styles.  "Choker styles are coming back this year, too!" she says.

Boho Style will still be strong this Fall so I asked Brooke what to expect to see in her store as the weather cools.  "This fall, we will see lots of longer lengths in shirts.  The duster style vest or cardigan is a great option paired with a cropped top or tucked in shirt," says Brooke.

The easiest way to rock your Boho Style, is to head over to the Fort Collins BUCKLE (yes, they are open during construction!) and let Brooke and her amazing team members help you put together the perfect look for you!  This is one of my favorite go to stores when shopping for my son, myself or making a recommendation to a client.  I know that you will be treated like a rockstar!  While you are there, check out some of Brooke's favorite brands when shopping the Boho Style:  Free People, Gimmicks by BKE, Amuse Society, Freebird Boots (my personal fav!), Bed Stu Shoes, Buckle Black Denim and Kan Can Denim.

To inspire you, here are the photos taken of CSP 2016 Senior Model Tara Teslow of for Twelfth Year Volume Three.  Tara with her stunning eyes and gorgeous smile, rocks the Boho Style.  The slip dress in tomato, crochet duster and aqua faux leather wedges are all from BUCKLE.

I am just thrilled to introduce you to the last - and certainly not the least - CSP 2016 Senior Model.  Tara Teslow of Fossil Ridge High School has attended the last two Reveal Parties for Twelfth Year magazine and I have been waiting for her junior year when I could invite her to be on the Senior Model team.  This lovely high school junior is just plain fun to be around. Her beaming smile, sarcastic sense of humor and bold confidence make for a very fun photo shoot.  

 

I have always known that Tara is an excellent tennis player and recently got to watch her win a singles match for the FRHS girls' tennis team.  But I just found out that she is also very talented on the piano - wondering if I can get her to play sometime.  This Taylor Swift loving girl plans to pursue a career in physical therapy.  And, I have no doubt that Tara can accomplish any goal she sets!

 

Tara looks beautiful modeling a scarf from the CSP Accessory Closet in her Model Session photos below.  And on May 5, you will see Tara wearing the latest in upscale Boho style from BUCKLE in the newest edition of Twelfth Year magazine.  Follow Cindy Short Photography on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter or sign up for our email list to make sure you don't miss a thing when Twelfth Year is released!

I am so excited to introduce you to CSP 2016 Senior Model Arti Pandey!  This stunning student from Fossil Ridge High School is a ton of fun! Her energy and confidence lights up a room and can make an ordinary day feel like a party.  I love Arti's hard working and goal-oriented personality and that she balances her desire to one day be a CEO with her love to volunteer.  Currently, Arti is an Honor Student, part of FRHS's Ambassador Program and a member of the FRHS tennis team.  

At the time of her Model Session, Arti had long hair that she never wore in an updo.  I love the look Ali, our hair stylist, created for Arti - so elegant!  Arti now has an adorable bob that looks amazing with the apparel and accessories she is modeling from GG Boutique in the new issue of Twelfth Year magazine to be released May 5!
