I had a great time shooting a Valentine's' Day-inspired mini-editorial last week with my fashionable partners in crime, blogger Kristen Uekermann of The Boston Fashionista and jeweler Sophie Hughes, of Sophie Hughes Jewelry.
We shot at Towne Stove and Spirit, whose sleek and chic ambiance is the perfect match for it's rich menu, that includes (but is not limited to) killer lobster pop-overs, tomahawk cowboy steaks, and maple cotton candy-topped sundaes (yeah, really!). The space is massive, with tons of nooks and crannies to explore, but its cozy, inviting feel - like being in the home of a super-stylish friend who just happens to be able to cook up a storm - is what made our Valentine's Day shoot work, and I'm pretty sure it will make a Valentine's Day Date work too...
Here are some behind-the-scenes photos from the shoot, and stay tuned for outfit posts and details about each of our clothes, favorite brands, and ideal date-night spots.

This is just part of the jewelry spread we got to choose from, thanks to Sophie Hughes! A lot of the new gold and silver styles are part of her upcoming collection, to be released this February.
