Moving, moving, moving is all I have been doing these past two weeks. Maybe a little shopping for the new place, but mostly getting ready to head right back up the mountain for my senior year. Having to put my clothing in two different states is cramping my style a little bit, but there is an easy solution to this problem… A dress!
When I don’t want to face the task of choosing a whole outfit, I always put a dress on because it’s one piece and not a lot of thought. I got this dress as a going away gift from my aunt. I will let you in on a little secret. It is from CrewCuts. I always hated being short and small, especially when I was little, but now I love it! I can get this adorable dress for a fourth of the price. Keeping my style playful is very important to me and sometimes that means sneaking into parts of the store that aren’t exactly for me. Thanks Mom for the good genes.
These shoes take this dress from sweet and adorable to fun and funky. I’m in love with these shoes and this brand. Kork-Ease is known for introducing the wedge to the American fashion industry in the 1970s. They win everything in my book. I don’t know where I would be without wedges… maybe a few less nights with sore feet. These wedges are BAE in the realist way. I wore them to a party one night and another girl had them on. A pal said, “Don’t worry. They look better on you.” From that moment on, I decided these shoes and I would never part.
I have been a lover of the tassel trend since it started. I think I just enjoy the flair it adds to any basic outfit.

“Above all watch the world with glittering eyes, the whole world around you. Because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
It is so important to always look for the fun and joy in situations. When you take this approach to life it gets a lot easier.
My new drink, y’all. My father and I went to see the Counting Crows VIP style which meant an open bar and good food. It was at the new amphitheater in Nashville and Pickers Vodka was the sponsoring vodka. They made 3 flavors, red, white, and blue (I love it). Blood orange, plain, and blueberry! All of which were amazing! While Pickers is only available in Middle Tennessee right now, they are expanding!
For this drink you need:
Pickers Blueberry Vodka (or other blueberry vodka)
That’s it! I fill a glass with ice, pour in however much vodka I am feeling at the moment, and fill the rest with lemonade. It is a perfect drink to share with Mom and Dad and also your best pals. I will be getting some to take back to school with me, don’t worry.
Today’s song is brought to you by one of my Top 10 bands of all time ever (like the list that will never change). The Wood Brothers! If you have never listened to them, you are doing yourself a HUGE disservice. I got the chance to see these guys live in September and it was one of the best concerts I have ever been to. It is a group of actual brothers that love playing music and are damn good at it. At the concert, they brought out an old mic and just played in a circle together. I got chills, it’s casual. I want to post every song they have, but I am going to have some self-control and let you guys look them up (Honey Jar, Lovin’ Arms, Wastin’ My Mind….)
This song really means a lot to me. It reminds me of my grandfather who passed away in September, and whenever I hear this song, I just think of him especially the last verse. I knew how proud he was of me and how happy I was to be blessed with such an amazing influence in my life.
you do you, rach
