Touch of Paris Styled Shoot & Work­shop

Baltimore Sun Sunday - - FAMILY -

Haylie Ahart, 27, de­cided to rely on one of her fa­vorite brands, Free Peo­ple, to turn heads at Touch of Paris Styled Shoot & Work­shop. “They just have unique items and it’s usu­ally ca­sual and a lit­tle boho,” she says.

The Fair­fax, Va.-based owner of Wan­der And Whim­si­cal Flo­ral says her goal for the day was func­tional with a touch of fash­ion.

“I was try­ing to be com­fort­able, but put to­gether,” she ex­plains.

The en­sem­ble also was a sub­tle way to show­case her com­pany’s aes­thetic. “This is my branded color scheme — tau­pes and neu­trals, nat­u­ral and or­ganic,” she says, adding that she opened her com­pany in Novem­ber 2018 af­ter work­ing as a free­lance flo­ral de­signer for three years. Ahart says that the en­sem­ble is typ­i­cal of what she nor­mally wears: “Ei­ther that or jeans and a sweater. It’s pretty ca­sual.” Top Plush sand-colored sweater from Free Peo­ple. High-waisted, long black skirt from Free Peo­ple. Rock­er­style black booties by Steve Mad­den from Nord­strom. Dan­gling ear­rings from Free Peo­ple and a sil­ver ring from David Yur­man was a gift from her par­ents.
