 So sad that this is my last outfit post from my vacation in Texas. Although while editing these photos I could feel the humidity all over again. It was something else. I’ll take my dry California heat any day. I say that as today it was 108 degrees. I was so excited when I found out that we were going through Amarillo, Texas on our way home. You see Cadillac Ranch is there and I have wanted to see it ever since I was a little kid. It was pretty overwhelming when we walked up, as there was an overwhelming smell of spray paint. However it was still a sight to see. From all the pictures in magazines it always looked like it was out in the wide open space. Come to find out it is actually in the middle of a corn field.

I just knew I wanted to wear another pair of cowgirl boots for this post. I mean when in Texas, right? I knew this was the perfect pair. Although I was struggling to find what shirt I wanted to wear with it. Luckily my mom saved the day and let me borrow this top. It was lightweight and flowy, which with that heat, I was all about it. I was so excited to finally be able to check Cadillac Ranch off my bucket list. Although i’ll be honest, I was a little disappointed that there wasn’t more to see in Amarillo. At least we sure couldn’t find anything. But I did get to eat at my first Fuddruckers, so there’s that!

I’m already planning my next trips in the next couple of weeks and I couldn’t be more excited.

Hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday! God bless!

 Last week I was in the great state of Texas, so what better place to snap a photo of American Country, than there? I have been to Texas quite a few times, but this time it was beyond humid and muggy. Or maybe I was just more aware of it because I am older now. I was dying. I’m used to heat, I live in California after all. However California’s heat is dry and bearable. Texas heat is like 100 degrees with 40% humidity. So when you get out of the car you can barely breathe. Had I known that, I wouldn’t have taken 10 different outfits with me on my trip. I could barely manage shooting two, I tell ya, the heat just sucks the life right out of you.

However, this outfit was a must, so I fought the humidity and snapped a few shots. So glad I did. Have I mentioned what an amazing photographer my mom is? I can’t even tell you how many incredible photos this woman takes. It’s always hard to choose but these turned out to be my favorites. The hot wind was blowing so we took full advantage of it. This was such a great outfit for 4th of July. Durango sent me these boots a few months ago and I knew the red bandana’s would be great for summertime. So glad my mom was up for standing in the heat for 20 minutes while we walked around the town. Also – If you’re ever in Texas near Waco or Dallas, stop into Hico. They have a wonderful ice cream shop with HUGE scoops! 🙂

What do you all think? I personally love it! Hope you all have a great day. God bless!

Love my Crush Boots

| Boots: c/o Durango | Shirt: Target | Leggings: Target |

You all know how much I love cowgirl boots. That is one of the reasons I love getting to partner with Durango. They have some of the most beautiful boots that are beyond comfortable. Growing up in the Central Valley I have worn my fair share of boots and always love getting to wear my Durango’s. During the summer months I normally would pair my boots with a dress or jeans. However the day I shot these photos, there was a breeze so leggings seemed to be appropriate. I honestly love the look it gave this whole outfit.

I have had the shirt in today’s post for a while now. You may have remembered the maroon one from this post. Well I liked that shirt so much, I bought it in this color too. It is flowy and yet so flattering at the same time. I am a huge fan of Knox Rose from Target. That line has a variety of country approved clothing. Whether it’s a fringe cover up or a lose fitting blouse, it is so stylish and affordable. I knew this top would be the perfect addition to a pair of cowgirl boots. I wanted to show off my boots, so I threw on my favorite black leggings. This outfit was so easy to put together. It looks great and is so classy. Now we can’t have a country outfit without a glass of my moms sweet tea. Side note: I’m absolutely addicted to her sweet tea. I have had to cut back on it because it isn’t the healthiest, but man it is good. I grew up on it. My mom poured me a glass in one of her mason jars and we were set to go shoot some pictures.

I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday! God bless!
