Thanksgiving Outfit Idea






// boots // dress // jeans //  sweater //

 Thanksgiving is right around the corner which means family get togethers, friendsgivings, turkey, stuffing, pumpkin everything and of  course an extra day to dress to impress! I’ve been playing around with mixing textures, prints, and stepping out of my normal wardrobe rut. I paired this outfit together this passed weekend and completely love it! I honestly can’t wait to wear it again in Vegas! Plus I wanted to give you visual proof I wear more than this comfy sweater that keeps popping up on my Instagram feed… so cozy…

Anyways I love how this sheer dress looks under the sweater. It gives a flowy whimsical dress more of a fitted look basically transforming it. This outfit not only is adorable but extremely comfortable, great for a full day celebrating thanksgiving! This year thanksgiving is going to look a whole lot different for me as I will be in the car on the way to Vegas for work! Stay tuned for all those fun updates, we plan on seeing the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam (I can’t wait to make all those corny dam jokes)

Let’s talk about the boots! One of my favorite pieces to this look. I’m pretty sure I have a sixth sense when it comes to spotting Corral Boots. I’m a baby cowboy boot wearer, but that doesn’t mean I love them any less! C says he loves when I wear these because he can hear my coming, the fringe flings all over the place it’s way too much fun.

What are you Thanksgiving 2016 plans?

Fall Vest + Life Catch Up





Wow the end of 2016 feels like it is just going to flying by! So much has happened this year it’s crazy to sit back and think about it. The most insane part is the year isn’t even over yet. One thing I’ve noticed a lot about 2016 is I’m becoming a lot more sentimental… thinking back on events and situations where God was clearly moving. For those of you who don’t know I’ve been in the middle of a transitional season from one job to my new current job.

Change. A word you either hate or love. I like to think I’m always ready for change, but more realistically it depends on what kind of change it is. Fall is my favorite season, and it’s all about change. The leaves change colors and then drift to the ground as they fall off preparing for the coming winter. This is always a sweet reminder that change is a good thing in our life. I’ve been trying very hard the last few months to balance out everything in my life. To find that sweet spot of being productive but also finding time to do things you love!

Anyways other than me blabbering on about life and what not I wanted to brag on this vest! I’ve been on the hunt for a good vest for fall and winter for a whole year now. And finally I found one! If navy isn’t your color that’s ok, they also offer it in pink, cream, and olive green. The material of this vest is perfect it’s not bulky or heavy, it’s great for every day wear or to keep you warm on those chilly fall nights. I apologize in advance if you see this piece over and over again…

Starbucks Tip: for a more nutty flavor try a Chia Latte with Almond Milk 🙂

Change of Season









What C really does during out photoshoots ^^^

This is one of my favorite outfits! Tall boots, white shorts, and my go to jean shirt, the ingredients for a perfect outfit. During this photoshoot I was cracking up watching C trying to take pictures and play Pokemon Go at the same time, ahh true love sacrifices folks. But seriously I had to talk about these Minnetonka boots. I got these boots last spring for a family wedding, all the girls wore matching boots it was adorable. To be honest I had no idea how much I would wear these, finally I had to give them a break and that break didn’t last very long.

Alas as the seasons change our wardrobes start shifting and changing too. From tank tops and sandals to blanket scarfs and booties, with a change of season all things start to shift in a different direction. Some people handle change well, others don’t… (i.e. the people who are throwing fits over the new the PSL being available this month.) My life right now is once again in the middle of transition from one season to the next. God has blessed me with an awesome new job opportunity and I have all the feels. The feels of starting a new job and leaving one you absolutely love. I’ve known for a long time that God has an ultimate plan for my life. If we had time to sit and chat over tea/coffee you would see how the past six months have led up to this transitional season. I’m excited to see how this new season is going to challenge and grow me. I learned early on that change is inevitable, you have two choices:

1) Be dragged kicking and screaming 

2) Embrace it. 

When you embrace change it doesn’t necessarily make things easier. Instead it allows you to except the inevitable and move onto what’s next. So what type of seasons are changing in your life?

Flowy Summer Tanks + Banner Apparel






Summer is in full swing and it is hotter than HOT outside! The kind of hot where you just step outside and your body feels sticky and your hair starts growing. With the temperature rising it’s a constant search to find cute clothes that also give you a cool breeze. The cowboy and I both have cars without AC so I’m always fighting the weather on my clothing options. Dresses and flowy tanks are my go tos!

Flowy tank tops are a perfect wardrobe option for long hot summer days. One of my current favorite tank tops is this one from Banner Apparel. I love this tank because it’s extremely light weight and breathable. You can either dress the it up or dress it down which. This is a piece that every girl needs in her closet. This tank looks great paired with boyfriend jeans shown here, or a cute pair of shorts, or tucked into a skirt. The possibilities are endless!

And the best part of all? This tank is a constant reminder that…

“While we are imperfect in many ways, and we fail often; we are loved perfectly by our gracious Savior.”

Banner Apparel goes above and beyond to design their clothing to be inspirational and fashionable. It’s a win, win! So no matter how hot summer 2016 gets I’ll be staying cool 😉

What are some of your summer wardrobe go tos?

Better Life Bags




Every girl deserves to feel beautiful, I think everyone would agree to that. And one way to feel beautiful and confident is to carry a fabulous bag! So let me introduce you to Better Life Bags. If you’ve been following me on Snapchat (@thecowboyandi) and Instagram (@thecowboyandi) you may have noticed me talking a lot about Better Life Bags. That’s because I’m %100 sold on their products and their mission. You see Rebecca Smith the owner created this amazing company out of her own home. Her story is amazing but it’s way better when she tells it so check out this video!

I’m sure now you can see why I’m in love. I was able to work with Rebecca, her team, and her products and it has only made me want to purchase even more of their bags and accessories! Ladies I’m telling you, they really are amazing. In April I was gone on a business trip and carried my Harper Better Life Bag with all my camera equipment, jackets, makeup, and other random objects. We walked 10-20 miles a day for a week and a half. You can say this backpack was truly put to the test. The straps on my shoulders never once felt like they were cutting into my skin and I honestly felt like the weight of this backpack was distributed evenly so it never felt too heavy. Not to mention my favorite features like the phone pocket on the back which was super easy to access and the three pockets on the inside large enough to actually hold things without items falling out into the bag. Besides the Harper I’ve also fallen in love with the Beverly Better Life Bag! A perfect every day purse I would say. I love the two deep outside pockets perfect for storing your phone and other items. But my favorite part is that my Vera Bradley planner (aka my life) fits PERFECTLY inside. This is a must for my day to day to purse so I love that the Beverly is up to par. Oh and obviously the fabric and endless combinations are fabulous! That’s right I almost forgot to mention you can custom make your own Better Life Bag which is incredibly cool!

So what are you waiting for! Go check them out!
