Spring in Texas means there’s one thing you’ll start seeing on the side of every road you drive on: Bluebonnets. We missed out on getting pictures in the fields of flowers last year, so this time we made a trip down to Waco, and took the back-roads in hopes of seeing some blue. We found a great spot off the road to pull off and take some pictures of the blue and orange flowers
Our small town has quite a few festivals throughout the year, and a couple weekends ago was the Harvest Moon Festival. There were country singers, food vendors, mini ponies for the kids, and lots of people set up to sell their artwork; Tommy and I had a great time walking around and chowing down on some Texas BBQ! The festival was held at our town square, which is home to the old Granbury Theatre. Since I was wearing a monochrome back and while outfit, I fit in perfectly with the Theatre entrance, and naturally had to take photos there.
While some states are already experiencing sweater-weather, Texas is still hanging on to the summer heat. I took advantage of the cooler, rainy morning this weekend and put on my J Brand leather vest, and a hat to protect my hair from the rain (obviously). By the time the afternoon rolled around, the sun came out and the vest came off.
It’s been hot here in Texas the last few days….I mean HOT, as in I need a towel on my seat so I don’t burn my legs when I get into the car. Skirts are the best for this kind of weather to let my legs breathe, and this white skirt I got from Zara while we were in Paris is a favorite right now.
June was a good month for getting some crazy deals. As seen on my Utility Thrift post, one of my favorite finds of the month was a military green Fossil jacket for only $8. When bargain hunting, I find it rare that I ever find exactly what I’m looking for, so I keep my options open (shopping off-season is usually best, because there is more merchandise, and less people going through it). Finding this jacket was a major score! Goodwill also came through again the next time I went with a simple James Perse white shirt that hadn’t ever been worn for $4.
Confession: I’m addicted to boots. I’m always on the lookout for a good pair (but never want to spend a lot, of course). A couple weeks ago, I ended up finding 2 great pairs of boots on the same day on Poshmark. The first pair are over the knee Alexander Wang boots with a cutout at the heel, which I’ve been eyeing for a couple years, but didn’t want to spend too much. These are in great shape, and I ended up getting them for $80 which is more than I like to spend, BUT…when I’ve been searching for them for this long, it’s worth it to me. Well, an hour-ish later, I spotted a fabulous pair of YSL ankle booties and thought the $35-price tag was a type-o. It wasn’t a type-o…MAJOR SCORE! They retailed for $1,200!
