Lady In Red

First of all…CONGRATULATIONS to the winners of the Touchstone Crystal giveaway: Sarah Langlois , and Abby Peterson!!  Please email me at: abby_doll@hotmail.com so we can work out the details.  SO excited for you girls!

And second, I have to say I am grateful to even be getting a blog up today.  I had big regional meetings last week at work-which meant a lot of late nights and early mornings-definitely no time for blog photos.  And then over the weekend (when I had planned to catch up), I ended up with a terribly sick hubby AND the SLC had a whirlwind of crazy, stormy weather, including SNOW!  Let’s just say, the odds were not in my favor.  But fortunately, we were able to sneak in one quick outfit right as the sun went down last night.  And I have to say, I am loving my pretty red lace dress paired back to a deconstructed denim jacket (with a hoodie no less).  You know me, I always love an unexpected mix of casual and dressy…

She’s Gone Country

I grew up in Montana, but ran off to college in Nashville to attend Vanderbilt University and chase the bright lights and shiny stars of a country music career. And through hard work and determination, I was lucky enough to land a regular singing gig at a bar downtown on the most coveted nights of the week. Oh how I loved that chapter in my life. And while I obviously made the decision somewhere along the line to walk away from it all and pursue a more “regular” life, I will always cherish my years in the Music city and Nashville will always hold an incredibly special place in my heart.

So last summer when a friend told J and me that the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville partners with the Sundance Resort in Utah every year to showcase the best songwriter’s from Nashville at Robert Redford’s beloved (and breathtakingly beautiful) resort, I knew I was all in. And so this year, when it fell over our anniversary weekend, I knew it was the perfect way to kick off our celebration. And a perfect evening it was…

Maxi Dress: American Rag (on sale!) | Necklace: Macy’s (old), similar | Cuff: H&M (old), similar | Sunnies: Rayban | Flats: Rampage (on sale!)

And not only was it a perfect night of music in the mountains, it was also the perfect occasion to wear my favorite maxi dress.  I am so in love with the vibrant colors and soft fabric of this maxi-I just can’t get enough.  And while my hubby (along with most men) is not typically a fan of maxi dresses, he actually doesn’t mind this one.  Lucky for him, because he’ll probably be seeing a lot of it this summer! 🙂

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
