Home Sweet Home

I'm home. And I just love being home. Home is in Arizona, out on a ranch with my family. This week is spring break for me and I'm lovin' it. I miss my home so much when I'm in California. But then when I'm home, I miss my honey! Brennan couldn't come with me this trip because he has school this week. Poor guy. But there is just something about Arizona, the ranch, where someone grows up. I just love waking up early in the morning to see all our hound dogs sprawled out along the fresh cut green grass, sipping on my dad's freshly brewed coffee, then looking out the window to see the horses laying down sunning themselves in warm piles of sawdust. All of that just isn't in California. Sorry Cali. Anyone like me and a total home body?

Another major bonus is when I'm home, I get to raid my mom's fab closet and jewelry case. She has the best stuff. She is a professional garage sale/flea market/goodwill shopper. I think Macklemore's song, Thrift Shop was written for her ;). She finds the most funky fun stuff! Like the necklace for example- $5 at a garage sale. The amazing dress? In a little booth in Las Vegas during the National Rodeo Finals. All her stuff is one-of-a-kind...just like her! 

Stay tuned for more shoots of me in my element ;). I think I'm going to bring out the horses for the next shoot!

A big thank you to my beautiful mom for taking these pics and letting me raid her closet for photo shoots :)!

  7. The dress looks so amazing on you!! I would never be able to pull off something like that. The sleeves look so fun to play around with.

  8. Ive been hunting down for a lace dress and the one your sporting is superb. I wanna experiment with making my own out of vintage lace fabric and this dress will definitely be the inspiration behind the design. Thanks for sharing

    1. Oh I am so glad it served as some inspiration for you!! I guess the woman that made the dress collects old vintage lace dresses, then gets old lace tablecloths and sews them to the sleeves! Super cool I thought! Good luck with your design :)
