 You know that moment where you immediately realized you seriously underestimated a situation? Well the look on my face in the last photo would be me realizing I seriously underestimated how cold it was outside. Yes that is my breath you can see to the left of my face. LOL. Now i’m a simple country girl from the valley and lately we have been experiencing some pretty cold weather. Or so I thought, but it was FREEZING up in Twain Harte. I figured I’d be fine with just a jacket, but nope. I needed my beenie, a scarf, my boots, boot socks, gloves and a hot drink. It was THAT cold.

While we were driving into town we saw these trees next to a parking lot that were loaded with snow. Naturally we had to stop and snap a few photos. I have never seen such beautifully packed trees. It looked like something out of a movie. It was so gorgeous.

Now onto the story behind this outfit. So my mom and sister found this plaid shirt at JCPenney last week. I was beyond mad when I had shrunk my favorite black and white plaid shirt in the dryer that morning. You can see the one i’m talking about here. So I left my house, beating myself up, ready to ball, (no I don’t cry over clothes, but I was sick too!) and I headed to a doctors appointment. When I got back this shirt was hanging in my closet with a note. It was so sweet and thoughtful of my sister and mom to find a shirt that would replace the one I shrunk. It has now become one of my favorite shirts. I paired it with this scarf I got from Christmas that can be found at Farmhouse in Turlock.

Stay warm out there! God bless!

A few weekends ago I decided I wanted to beat the Black Friday rush and head to Bass Pro to pick up a few gifts. I threw on some yoga pants and Uggs and was off. I was pretty sick but was dying to get out of my apartment, hence the outfit choice. I had no intention of purchasing anything for myself however I came across this 100% cotton black and red plaid shirt and just had to try it on. As soon as I found my size my head was already spinning with ideas of what to wear with it. It fit like a glove and I threw it in the shopping cart. I don’t know how many people can say they found a high fashion piece at Bass Pro Shops, LOL!

I came home threw this outfit together. I am in LOVE with this whole get up. I wore this outfit on Thanksgiving day and was so warm and comfortable. It’s rare when you find anything that is 100% cotton so needless to say I knew I had to scoop it up ASAP. I added this statement necklace from J.Crew and threw on my favorite puffy vest from Nordstrom. I am so happy with out this outfit turned out that I can’t wait to wear it again!

Hope you all stay warm and have a great Friday! God bless!

I’m so excited to share my adventures from today! I had no idea when I woke up this morning that I would end up in Yosemite National Park, however I’m sooo happy I did! It just so happens that today the park entrance fee was free because of Martin Luther King day! It was a gorgeous day in the park and I had a blast scoping out locations for this outfit post! When I saw this stone building I knew it would be perfect! It was FREEZING cold!!! I have wanted to put together this outfit for a while and seem to have not had the right opportunity until today! Now lets talk about this wristlet, honestly one of my favorite gifts I got for Christmas! My amazing sister found this Juicy Couture wristlet and knew it would be perfect for me! Such a great addition to this outfit! I have been trying my best to not carry so much in my purse lately. It is hard on my back and arms and I really don’t need to carry all that stuff. I was really excited to get this wristlet to try out this year. Can’t wait to use it more!

Hope you all had a fantastic holiday weekend! God Bless!
