10/1/14Falling Into The Sea with Calypso St. Barth

When I got married, I was conflicted as to whether to get married in a park or on the beach. Ultimately, we opted for park, but I got to live out my beach wedding decor fantasy just a little bit when Dabito and I styled and shot a little look-book a couple of weeks ago for Calypso St. Barth.  Calypso-justina-blakeney-dabito

We’re calling it Falling Into The Seaand the concept is a fall soiree beach-side. We joked to passersby as we were shooting this that Dabito and I were renewing our vows ;) I think they believed us.


Our idea for this shoot was pretty simple: dinners on the beach in the brisker fall months are cozy, complete with woolly sweaters, blankets, pillows and rugs…you can wander down from your beach home to dine near the water (if that’s how you roll) or pack a picnic from the city…bring along some of your favorite pillows and throws, and meet some friends down in the sand with a bit of vino, bread and cheese–watch the sun go down and bring a warm cashmere sweater because you’re going to want to get cozy…


We shot a few different scenes on a couple of different beaches, and actually picnic-ed right here–it was really quite lovely. Dabito and I didn’t renew our vows, but we did vow to bring more assistants on the next shoot because getting this incredible woven bench and this gorgy Moroccan Wedding Pouf down a rocky, beachy slope was no joke. :P




Oh and this rug, and these moccasins WILL BE MINE. Mark my words. I’m totally obsessed.


All in all it was such a fun day, I’m seriously smitten with the entire Calypso Maison collection. Now can I teletransport myself back to that beach with that rug and that sweater, pahhhlease?
