So let me tell you about my best friends… Do you ever have those seasons where you are killin’ it in one part of your life and suffering in others? Well as of lately, my blog has been seriously suffering.. Has it really been a month since I posted last?! If it is one thing I have learned in the last month it is that you just can’t plan how things will go. Although my professional life is amazing, my personal life has taken the hit and is going down in flames. However, the best part about best friends is that they don’t keep score of how many times you cancel plans or can’t get out of bed because of exhaustion. They just keep calling and keep trying to get you to go out.

Well on Saturday, I went out. Every year when the rodeo comes around I throw on my best boots, grab my favorite buckle and head out. Although I consider myself a country girl, I probably am not. However, when you grow up and your family has crops, you are some how grandfathered in right? The rodeo came to town and I couldn’t have been more excited. Not only to watch the bull riders but to see my friends. These people are so special to me and I can’t imagine them not being in my life. They call me out when i’m acting crazy, they pick me up when i’m down and keep me sane.

There are so many changes happening so fast and although i’m terribly excited, i’m also a little nervous. Thankfully I know these people will be there for me no matter what I throw their way. Moral of the story, stop saying your going to make plans, just make them and stick to them!

Hope you all are doing well and are surviving through your own seasons!

God bless,

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t totally excited that the weather is warming up. I am tired of wearing black and being bundled up. Granted I would love to get a tan before I break out all my Spring clothes, dare to dream I guess. Anyways, I went shopping this past weekend and was frustrated because I couldn’t find anything that was Spring appropriate. Then I walked into J.Crew. I feel like sometimes their clothes are hit and miss between mega preppy and what I normally wear. However this past weekend, they were on point. I found this dress with navy polka dots and fell in love immediately. It had a very different shape to it, which I am not used to wearing, but I loved it, so I tried it on and it fit. I didn’t want to take it off! I am so in love with the ruffles at the bottom and the contrast between the top being lighter and the bottom being more navy. I couldn’t buy it fast enough.

I added my favorite Miss Me jacket over it because there was a slight breeze when I shot these photos. Turns out, it matched perfectly with my cowboy boots and I was ready to go. I am so excited about this outfit and can’t wait to wear it more often. I’m thinking I will pair it with a nude pair of wedges too, so I can dress it up a bit more and wear it to work. What are some of your favorite patterns you will be wearing this Spring? Share them in the comments below!

Hope you all have a great day! God bless!

Sometimes you just have to wear comfy clothes. I am an advocate for dressing for comfort. However dressing for comfort doesn’t mean you have to dress like a slob. Although I will admit, sometimes yoga pants and a sweatshirt get the best of me, I still try to class it up. I bought this shirt the other day from Helen & Louise and was so excited at how soft it is. This top is so stylish with mesh accents and a stretchy gray material. I paired it with this pale pink crossbody bag I got from Rebecca Minkoff. I have been wanting one of her cross body bags for years but never bought one because of how much stuff I carry in my big purses. I decided to take the plunge when it was on major sale and am so glad I did!

Now that Spring is right around the corner I broke out these wedges. I bought these a couple weeks ago while visiting my sister in LA. I couldn’t resist them, I mean look at how cute that print is! I added a new statement necklace from Baublebar and love how it classes up this casual outfit. So excited to repeat this outfit in the future.

Hope you all have a wonderful day! God bless!
