Pretend it’s not Tuesday with these sunny photos by Petra.
Maddie wears Goody barrettes from Target and vintage top and shorts.
Shot by Petra and styled by Tavi. Thanks to Maddie, Amilie, and Becca (the same gang from September!) for modeling.
Becca wears Comme des Garcons SHIRT tee and vintage shorts and purse. Amilie wears Gap tee and vintage skirt and sunglasses. Both girls have Goody barrettes.
i can always count on rookie for amazing style/inspiration pics!
oooooohhhhhh i do love that polaroid, I want one so much, they capture moments perfectly – the little picture prints out 2 seconds later, and you carry around the little tokens of fun :)
I love the color-scheme!
I want that camera! It’s super cool, and I love pink stuff!
Lovely pics! I adore the 60s-esque Mod look meets babydoll outfits!! Plus, I admire the photographs – it’s very vintage, esp. on the last photograph which reminds me of this one still from Sofia Coppola’s Lick the Star (http://junkspark.blogspot.com/2010/08/lick-star.html).
This is probably my favorite so far. But where do you find sun this time of year?!
We took these in LA in the summer!
i need sunshine and shorts. and popsicles. NOW.
–instead of an elephant
These clothes remind me of outfits my mom used to dress me in when I was small that were hers when she was small. In a very good way.
Summer’s coming, and I’m definitely ready for it! But these pictures are making me want it now!
I really admire the photo shoots that you guys do! I always do photo shoots with my friends but they don’t compare to Rookie’s photo shoots! These are always an inspiration to me. I was wondering what type of camera you used for this photo shoot? Thank you!
the pink sunglasses…..i need them….
so dreamy and lovely <3
Oh my …. THIS IS WONDERFUL!
I love these photos!
whos camera is this and where can i find one????
This is the most amazing thing I’ve seen in a long time.
I love these girls, I really do. But can we have at some point in the future something about having short hair? I just feel like Rookie would be a really good “venue” for an article or shoot about girls with short hair. Hair is just such a massive symbol of femininity that having short hair really puts off a lot of people and weirds a lot of people out. Not that I don’t love long hair, I do love it, but show us short-haired girls some love!
hey kaetlebugg – totally agree with you about the short hair – don’t worry more short hair to come –
what about these short haired babes? did you forget about them?
Barettes are the best thing ever. I don’t know why they ever became uncool.
Also, extremely jealous of that pink Polaroid camera.
The colours are delicious! I could eat these photos for breakfast!!
Lovely! All these warm colours just make me want to go back to sunshiney-summer so much :)
