Like I mentioned in my last post, getting caught up from vacation has been less than easy. I never realize how many projects I am involved in, until I take off work and don’t do any of them. I am happy to be back and already gearing up for another trip coming very soon. While on the East coast, we made it a point to visit as many states as we could. When you’re from California you have to maximize your time. That being said, throughout the vacation we visited 6 states! Can you believe that?? I’ve always wanted to visit Rhode Island and finally I was able to. While we were there we went to Newport to visit the Breakers.

If you aren’t sure what the Breakers are, they are a group of mansions that sit directly on the Atlantic Ocean. They are huge, gorgeous and truly impressive. What I didn’t know is that a college sits right in the neighborhood and used a lot of these mansions as meeting halls. It was truly remarkable to see the Vanderbilt mansion among so many others. Also, it was FREEZING. So if I look incredibly cold, I was. I decided to take the casual approach since I was on vacation and all. I paired my favorite skinny jeans with some knee high boots and a very warm coat. I added an orange scarf and was really glad I did. When we started walking around the mansions I was completely numb. Thank goodness for scarves. So glad I was able to see so many beautiful places.

I hope you all have a great day! God bless!Cursive Signature

I’m sure everyone knows by now that I went to Boston a few weeks ago. Knowing I was going to a place with some of the most amazing history, I had to take this Born Free shirt with me. Yes, it has taken me a “few” weeks to get my head on straight and finally sort out all my photos I took on vacation. It was my first time in the far North East and I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was. It was like stepping into a history book. We stayed in a very small town that seemed like it was in the middle of nowhere. However we discovered on the way to town one day that there was this adorable paper mill very close to where we were staying. It was really cool to see the smoke stacks during the day and I just loved the look of the building.

I had packed this outfit with hopes I would find an all American place to wear it. Well how much more American can you get than a paper mill? I stopped by Sitting Pretty in Chowchilla before I left on vacation. I was hoping to find a few tops that I could wear. Well, I had no idea that it would be so cold out there, so all the tops I bought, required a heavy jacket to be put over them so I could stay warm. I may have froze for the purpose of these photos, but it was totally worth it. So here’s the exciting part about today’s post. I’ve teamed up with Sitting Pretty to giveaway the tan version of the cross body purse (pictured in the last photo) i’m wearing in these photos. How exciting is that?! This purse was a life saver on vacation. It held quite a bit of stuff and was adorable with every outfit. Want to enter? Follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter widget below. Good luck!

Hope you all have a happy Sunday! God bless!

Black Target Dress

I am so beyond excited for today’s post. I have teamed up with Durango boots to show you one of my favorite outfits. The whole time I shot these photos I had that Johnny Cash song going through my head… I walk the line… You all know I am a casual girl at heart and grew up in a large ag community. I have had a pair of cow girl boots ever since I could remember. The obsession has only grown. I was so excited when Durango reached out and asked if I wanted to collaborate. I couldn’t reply to the email fast enough. Talk about a dream come true. I found this black dress at Target a few days ago and knew it would the perfect dress to go with these boots. I added a jean jacket on top of it and a few necklaces. The outfit was complete.

I have to tell you about this barn in the background. For the last 10 years I have driven by it and never stopped to take photos. I respect the owners so much for the fact they painted this whole barn like the American flag. I knew it just had to be the background for this shoot. Now it’s located on a pretty busy street and so it required pulling off to the side of the road. Well in the spirit of capturing some amazing photos my mom and I decided to very CAREFULLY look for traffic then jump out in the middle of the road for some photos. I definitely got my exercise running back and forth between cars. However, it was TOTALLY worth it. I love these photos and describe me to a tee. So happy I was able to finally stop and capture this beautiful place.

Hope you all have a great day!
