RP X Nordstrom: Santa Barbara

RP X Nordstrom: Santa Barbara

We just had the best time shooting our August collection in Santa Barbara! The company I work for, Rachel Parcell, just partnered with Nordstrom this year and it has been a blast to work with them! I loved just being on set and learning from them. They have a job for everything! The guy pointing in the picture below, he was the “set dad” haha. Basically he made sure everyone was doing alright and everything was going smoothly. He made sure we had plenty of water, he made us take a break and eat and even got us all Starbucks when we needed a pick-me-up. He was hilarious!

We shot at a house that is rented out on Airbnb and other hosting sites. It was STUNNING. The views were amazing. We had to fly into LAX and get a connecting flight into the tiny airport in Santa Barbara. It was so darling! Until we tried to get home. We were scheduled to get home at 7 PM…we didn’t get home until midnight!! Such a long day with delays on delays. Haha luckily we weren’t alone. Jordan and I entertained ourselves haha.

We stayed at the Kipton Goodland Hotel and it was darling!! Every spot was picture perfect. Jordan and I totally felt like influencers while we had our little photoshoot haha.

I can’t wait to see how all the photos from this shoot turn out. We launch 8/1 and it’s the first launch where we will have more casual, everyday wear. The pieces are all my favorite, it’s hard to choose just one! I love our RP team and I love the Nordstrom team! Such an amazing experience getting to work closely with them. Here are some photos from the trip.

Twinning is winning!

Still twinning haha! Me, Boss queen RP in the middle, and Jordan on the right!
