Wishing upon a beachy vacation.

Maxi Dress: H&M ($40), Clutch: H&M($15), Shoes: Nine West($90), Cuff: Unkown, Rings: Forever 21($3-$6), Hat: H&M($10)

I found this beautiful Portuguese church a while back and it was all thanks to my bad sense of direction.  I was lost and looking for a beauty store to get some nail polish and I spotted this beautiful church. I knew right away that we had to go shoot there!  The church's architecture is very reminiscent of Goa's* buildings and that's one place we're dying to go see - it was a perfect opportunity for us to fantasize about being in Goa. S and I went to go take pictures in front of the church and we both forgot to take sweaters and literally froze (well really metaphorically). We wanted to go inside and check it out, but there was a service (I think that's the right word) going on, so we didn't want to disturb people. Oh and it was actually taking place in Portuguese, it sounded beautiful. We did get to peek through the doors and it looked spectacular - hopefully we can go back soon and visit inside.

*A state on the western coast of India; capital, Panaji. Formerly a Portuguese territory, it was seized by India in 1961 and made a state in 1987.
