Here we are! The dynamic duo of Court + Mads back at it again! Courtney and I spent the summer of 2014 living in Madison and created a column for Moda Magazine called Summer and the City. We photographed our favorite things to do and see in Madison during the summer so it felt so good to be reunited and do this photo shoot TOGETHER again! Feel free to take a peek at the Summer and the City series here and see Courtney and I look like little babies. Two and a half years can make a huge difference! 

Courtney and I both truly love getting dressed up with each other and sometimes for no reason at all! For this shoot, we really wanted to incorporate the street style trend of combining lingerie slips with outerwear. The look creates a clever juxtaposition between the silky satins and lace of the slips and the embellished wool and feathers of the outwear. It creates an overall effortless and fun look and I think that definitely came through in the photos. 

Also, all of these amazing photos would not be possible without the work of the talented Cassie Sterwald. She always knows the look and vision I am going for with each shoot and just is a magician when it comes to capturing the shot. Cassie, Courtney, and I are all good friends which made the photo shoot so much fun! We joked and laughed and enjoyed pretending like we were at New York Fashion Week when in reality we were strutting our stuff on the sidewalks of Cedarburg in front of their public library. Hey, fake it until you make it! 

Lastly, I had mentioned in my previous post that I wanted to feature another stylish dynamic duo in this post today. Ashley Mackens and her good friend Morgan are featured below and just exude the boho chic vibes that all of us envy with our style. Take a short scroll down to see their photo and read what Ashley had to say about her dynamic duo's personal style!

Since Courtney and I will be in NYC all next week, I will only be sharing one blog post on Friday, December 16th (Courtney's birthday!) so make sure to follow along on Instagram for behind the scenes snaps of our trip!

**FEATURED DYNAMIC DUO**

"Morgan and I love fashion. Clothing is just one thing we bond over. Sometimes she is a little bit more preppy, and I am little bit more rocker, but we both love dressing in the boho fashions of Free People. The link below will bring you to an Instagram of the two of us in beautiful, light weight dresses. The out of focus shot resembles the dream like quality of Free People's clothing. As the first snow sets in and finals loom around the corner, I wish we could go back to this carefree summer day." -Ashley Mackens
