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!

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!

So I have to tell you, I am not one of those people who travels far and wide to find my size in a certain clothing item. Well i’m¬†normally¬†not that person. However, after you lose quite a bit of weight and you go shopping for the first time, you tend to lose your head. I was so excited to be able to finally do some shopping after not buying barely anything for the last two months. I found this TopShop top at Nordstrom in LA a few weeks ago and was beyond excited that for the first time ever, I was able to fit into something from TopShop! I found it at a Nordstrom near Pasadena and unfortunately they were out of my size. My dad was so gracious to drive me 45 minutes to the next nearest Nordstrom so I could buy the top. Talk about a contender for Father of the Year!

This journey has been so crazy and purchasing these pants was another win for me, personally. I found these at Old Navy and was so excited that they fit! I added a pair of black pumps and one of my favorite Tory Burch Robinson totes. Of course I couldn’t forget my nude colored blazer. I wear this outfit to work all the time and love how professional I feel and look.

I hope you all have a wonderful next couple of days. I am vacationing in the North East this week and can’t wait to explore all the beautiful sights. Feel free to shoot me recommendations of things I just HAVE to see! Also, a big happy birthday to my sister, Stephanie today. She turns 30! God bless!
