Get excited, friends, because the GLxHSP Endless Summer Collection is just one day away! It launches tomorrow morning, and I absolutely can not wait for you to see it!!

The Collection goes live at 9am CST, but subscribers get Early Access delivered straight to their inboxes at 5am CST… giving them four full hours to shop before it goes live to everyone! Not a subscriber yet? No prob, just sign up HERE and you’re on the list!

Today I thought it would be fun to take you behind the scenes of our photoshoot for a peek at how we brought ‘Endless Summer’ to life. Not to mention, more sneak peeks of the Collection and beautiful San Miguel de Allende!

We stayed at the iconic Casa de Sierra Nevada, which was perfectly situated smack in the middle of town, allowing us to shoot all over the picturesque hotel and surrounding areas with ease.

Not only is every nook and cranny Instagrammable, but the people, service, and property are flawless… and it was the perfect backdrop for our colorful Endless Summer Collection! See more on this incredible property HERE, including an exclusive offer they extended just for Hi Sugarplum readers!

We arrived the night before and got started before dawn, so Suzie definitely had her work cut out for her! But Val and Suzie are both so talented at what they do, I wasn’t worried one bit!

Would you believe I didn’t look in the mirror one time during our shoots?! I trust Suzie so completely, I forgot to even check out her work on my face! She and Val are so completely detail-oriented and invested, they fuss over every strand of hair and ray of light. I’m not sure how I got so lucky with friends like them.

We started shooting early, before the town came to life, and it was so magical to have the streets of San Miguel to ourselves. Not only do I feel so blessed to have these girls as friends, but grateful to have their immense talents help us bring our projects to life!

From designing patterns and styles, choosing colors, and fussing over the fit, the Gibsonlook team and I pour our hearts in to these Collections, and to see them come to life never gets old!

Every shoot is riddled with more blooper shots than usable ones, and this time was no different! Wedge sandals on the cobbled streets proved to be tricky for me, ha!

Highly recommend flat sandals and flexible sneakers when in San Miguel!

To create a Collection and bring it to life requires a lot of moving parts, and I couldn’t have done it without the entire Gibsonlook and Hi Sugarplum teams, and these gals. All my gratitude to them for their patience, talents, support, and unlimited enthusiasm for this project. I’m beyond proud of what we’ve created together!

I can’t wait to share our ‘Endless Summer’ Collection with you tomorrow!! Even though it’s well-stocked, our Collections tend to sell out quickly, so Early Access is key if you’ve got your eye on certain styles! You can sign up HERE, and you’ll also be entered to win a $250 Collection Shopping Spree!! (Current subscribers already entered.)

So tell me, which styles have you most excited? Can you get over the incredible town of San Miguel?! I’ll share a full Trip Report next week.

    love seeing even more photos of San Miguel de Allende. I’m in love with the drapes shown in photo three. I’m a sucker for Ikat print. Totally love the town, the clothes and the blooper reel.
