Stripey Casual

 Happy Monday :) Today I'm showing you my favorite jeans at the moment. I just picked up these JBrands from Anthropologie the other week and love them. This whole working at Anthro thing is getting me in trouble! It's hard for me to save my money when I am surrounded by all that wonderfulness (and not to mention a killer discount). Now, I don't think many woman like the whole flared out 70's jean look, but I totally do! I love to mix up the style of my jeans every now and then (don't worry, I have a lot of love for the skinny jean). Today I just paired them with a simple Pure and Good tee, which is also available in multiple colors at Anthro and only $38. And my knock-off Michael Kors watch...that I got for a grand total of $25 at No Rest For Bridget. Supa Deal! 

This Saturday I was nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by the amazing and super adorable, Megan from My Other Closet is Couture. ! Yay! I love to think that others are being inspired by what I do, so little surprises like this makes my day! Now I nominate the next 15 stylish girls who's blogs I keep returning to. So thank you for being awesome :).  its your turn to 1. thank and link back to me 2. nominate fifteen of the sites you newly follow or consistently visit (or both) and 3. let them know about it on their newest post plus 4. tell us seven things about yourself.

1.  I got bucked off a horse when I was eleven and have a scar from it still on my left cheek (you'd have to look really close :))

2. I was the biggest tomboy of all time growing up. I swore to my mom when I was 15 that I'd only ever wear a sports bra and never wear makeup. Those flew out the window. 

3. My little beagle, Butter, was my best friend growing up. We called her the Rattlesnake hunter because every time she found one she wouldn't stop barking. She was our warning signal. One night when I was walking back from the barn, I would have stepped on one if butter wouldn't have started barking. She was my hero :). 

4. I love to eat. I'm excited when I wake up because that means I get to have breakfast. I love whipped cream more than anyone in the world.

5. I was the Rodeo Queen for the World's Oldest Rodeo in 2011 :).

6. My boy friend and I are the most obsessed couple about dogs. When we get married we'll be the freaky couple with dozens of dogs. We love them all. Yesterday we followed this older couple who had a bulldog for 6 blocks just so Brennan could watch him walk. 

7. There is no place I'd rather be than at home. I'd much rather be there than at a club or party. That life has never appealed to me!


P.s. please follow me on bloglovin because I've heard that GFC is shutting down this july! :( So other fellow bloggers, alert your readers to do the same!

Oh and one more thing! I just joined the Still Being Molly link up for YOLO Monday. Go link up too!

  2. Tagging on to your #6 - My husband & I are obsessed with dogs - mostly our dogs. We've got two snorting, wrinkley English Bulldogs and we just love 'em. Everything they do is so much funnier than other dogs because they're so short and goofy...

  3. SO happy for you! Love the jeans! I may need to stop by anthro today :)

  4. Thanks for nominating me love. You cracked me up with the " I love waking up because that means I can eat breakfast" I am currently in court and just laughed out loud reading it.. Lol! Those jeans look amazing on you!!!

  8. Those jeans look fabulous on you! I am so-so on the flare. I love them when I wear heels, but since my boyfriend is the same height at me (I'm tall), I wear flats most days. So I stick to skinnies.
    I love that tee, also! I would be so broke if I worked at Anthro. It's my hands down FAVE store ever! My boyfriend always buys my presents from there :) - cookbooks, decor, jewelry, etc.
