Blue Illusion: A Travel Capsule for All Ages

The moment we saw Blue Illusion's spring/summer fashion launch we knew we had to do a capsule collection with the Australian-born brand. They are the cure for fun timeless dressing. The brand hits a sweet spot with contemporary designed pieces that fit a mature woman's body whether you are 37 or 77. This is truly a brand that "celebrates the spirit of women, their passion for life and generosity of heart."

So, we decided to do what we do best and create a travel capsule based on their latest collection. Focused on a long weekend away, we curated a 17 piece mini-wardrobe that can be endlessly mixed and matched to keep up with all of your adventures.

During the shoot we couldn't help but feel the energy of the bright pops of color contrasted with sophisticated urban silhouettes. These outfits belong on the streets of Europe, but can quickly transition to resort wear. Whether your next trip includes a casual weekend in wine country or a city escape, capsule dressing will make packing much easier.

Special thanks to our model, Kendra for her darling energy and making everything looking oh so beautiful! She may have added one of the pieces for her own wardrobe during the shoot.
