Batwing sweater, booties & textured tights

Life is catching up with me and I’m feelin it.  Running non-stop lately is taking it’s toll. I’m exhausted.

Equestrian denim and velvet

A child’s birthday party brought me to a horse ranch last weekend. So what do you wear to a horse ranch?  Hmmm… Shucks, my leather chaps are at the cleaners. {just kidding folks} But in all seriousness, I was so bummed that the one chance I get to wear my leather riding boots actually RIDING… they […]

When In Doubt

Wild Ruffle crystal necklace

I’m not typically a planner of my outfits. In general, I don’t lay things out the night before, or even give much thought at all to what I’ll be wearing to an event. So when Sparkle came up, I grabbed something at the last second to wear. I organized the vendors at the Boutique this […]
