FP Me Takes Richmond

FP Me RIchmond

FP Me RIchmondWhat happens when you combine 10 FP Me girls, 2 store employees, and a gorgeous hillside setting in the rolling Virginia mountains? The answer, of course, is pure magic.

This was my first time participating in an FP Me event, and it couldn’t have been more incredible. Rising with the morning light, we headed over to Free People Richmond to meet up with the FP Me girls who would be our muses for the day. It’s always inspiring to step over the threshold of a Free People store, even more-so when it’s filled with kind-hearted, passionate people who all share such an incredible eye for personal style. Clothes flew off the shelves in a flurry of excitement, and before you could blink, the gorgeous outfits that you see within this post were assembled. Eventually it came time to bid the store goodbye, and we all piled into the bus that would ferry us to our destination: Graves Mountain Lodge.

Tucked away in the mountains of Virginia, Graves Mountain Lodge is a welcome sight for a girl from the country was well as a photographer’s dream. There would be no shortage of photo opportunities on this day, between horseback riding, apple picking, and a picnic beneath the shade of an old willow, the pictures practically took themselves. We walked from the lodge over to the farm, where our group split up, some destined for the stables, and the others on course for sun-soaked orchards filled with the ripest apples you could imagine. All too soon it was time to head back to the city, but not before a hayride lead by a tractor-loving farm dog (really) and a stop at the sunflower field. Because a day on the farm isn’t complete without a stroll through a field of flowers. As we piled back onto our bus, apple-filled baskets in hand, we pointed our compass in the direction of Free People Richmond once again, this time with big plans for the autumnal fruit picked throughout the day. Those apples would soon be making a second appearance, transformed into the kind of dish that dreams are made of. But that’s another post for another day…

It was a gorgeous afternoon filled with some incredible girls. Check out their looks below, and be sure to follow them all on FP Me, I can guarantee you’ll be just as inspired as I was.

this is all really beautiful but it isn’t richmond, not even close. its a shame you didn’t showcase all the beauty this city has to offer. you could have easily gone down to the various james river parks and gotten just as good photos there. it would have been nice to actually see richmond.

I would love to see FP Me take on New Jersey- I currently work up north; just moved from Paramus to Woodcliff Lake- but I also worked down at the Shrewsbury store. I think it would be phenomenal to check out the old buildings in Asbury Park- The casino, the bowling alley, the beaches. I would definitely make my way back home for that!
