The Simple Bride

When my fiance and I decided to tie the knot this year… we decided on a simple “at home” private ceremony between us and our two children. It seemed silly to go out and buy a fancy big wedding dress… but I still wanted to look like a bride. I guess you could say that because this was a simple wedding… I needed a simple look.

I ventured out ALL over the city and tried to find a simple off-white dress.  I didn’t know what it needed to look like but I knew if I saw a certain type of dress, it would be “the one”.  I found a simple one, but thought it needed something to dress it up a bit.

The search continued for all the fun stuff like finding accessories and I thought of no other place other than FARMINISTA and TONIC.  I had had my eye on a this lace kimono weeks ago.. and thought it would look gorgeous for a wedding. Sure enough it worked perfect with my dress and the rest is history. It was easy finding earrings at Tonic/Farminista and I found the perfect pair that worked with an existing large pearl necklace I had.  I made my own flowers with greenery from Anthology…. which worked perfect with my dress choice.

Ranch Life With A Cadence Jacket

Living or visiting the countryside can give you a sense of peace, tranquility and light.  Be aware of your surroundings while staying warm and cozy as our days get colder.

 

The Cadence Jacket feels like a warm hug when you wrap it around your shoulders. You can feel totally comfortable wearing this coat as the snow starts to fly yet it looks breathtakingly fresh with a fall scene.

Farm Glam

Being a farm girl doesn’t mean you can’t dress like a farm goddess.  Mixing denim with sequins is probably the closest thing to feeling fabulous & glamourous on the farm.

Here we paired up this soft feeling denim shirt and a long maxi skirt, full of sequins.  This outfit was made for all you farminista’s out there who love to look & feel fabulous outside.

Now go play you glam-farm girl you.
