the color factory

If you are on social media at all, you’ve probably seen a photo taken at the Color Factory.  The vivid colors are the perfect backdrop for taking photo after photo!

ootd: leopard dress

Today I met up with some girlie friends for brunch –  always a GREAT time!  And I wore one of my new fave fall dresses.  What makes it so great?  For starters, it’s less than $35!!?!?!! And the ruffle details, and bold yellow color… love…

I paired it with my Chloe booties (they go with literally everything… and for the price they should… #amiright…  less expensive options here), Marc by Marc Jacobs bag (old, but similar here), and a bold red lip (in color:  “lady balls”)

After brunch I took advantage of the warm weather and walked up to Union Square.  I popped into H&M and OMG they’ve got some fun stuff out right now!… but that’s more for another post 😉

Friday the 13th

Ahhhh! It’s Friday the 13th!!!  I started to research why there’s such a freak out over the day, but after skimming through a few articles (here’s one, and another) I decided I really don’t care.  I decided I’d much rather share with you some last minute Halloween costume ideas for those of you that have procrastinated and need to order one NOW 😉

FYI – I would totally put a blonde wig on the toddler in the dragon outfit for a pint-sized Daenerys Targaryen

AMIRIGHT?!
And I haven’t even seen Game of Thrones (yet).

Rey

Rey
On a recent flight, I watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens… and I was kinda disappointed.  BUT, Rey is a total badass!  I’m hoping she gets her own series.

wonderwoman

Wonder Woman
I’ve wanted to be Wonder Woman since Linda Carter.

gorilla

Gorilla Rider
Now this is PERFECT for any guy or gal that has dreamed of getting a piggy-back ride from a gorilla.  Also perfect for anyone wanting a notable costume for $40.

suit2

Halloween Suit
I really love this option for those guys that are too shy to fully dress up for a Halloween party (particularly those office parties).  And if the full suit is still too much, try pairing the pants with a black sweater, or the blazer with jeans.

candy

Candy Shirt
And if all else fails… at least get a festive tee.  (Only $13!)

reflecting on the biz

img_9651One year ago today, Juniper Lemons did its very first photoshoot.  For the shoot, I flew to Texas to meet up with my sister Aj and our mom Carol.  I was about 13 weeks pregnant with baby Denton, and my sister had 2 kids in tow.  We had no idea what we were doing, and if I’m being honest, we still don’t much of the time.  But we’re constantly learning, making new friends in the industry, and challenging ourselves.

Processed with VSCO with s3 preset

Since that first photoshoot we’ve built a website, launched the Juniper Lemons boutique, popped our first Pop-Up Shop (with Shabby Apple!!), navigated state and federal business requirements and tax muck (ughhh…  yuck.), shopped markets, met with vendors, and so so soooo much more!

Some days it’s felt more like ‘work’ than I’d like, but overall I’m glad I started this adventure and I can’t wait to see where the next year takes us!

Stay tuned for new product launches coming soon!  We’ve got a photoshoot scheduled for November 4th — so be sure to follow our insta stories for some behind the scenes shots!  And we’ll be rolling out new items on the shop website soon after!

Sincerest thanks to all of you who read our blog, follow us on insta/facebook/twitter, and shop our store.  Your support means the world to us.
