So we just had our first day in Newport, Rhode Island at The Chanler and it was pretty awesome…
This is a bit of a throwback post at this point, but these photos were taken by the talented Alex Ignacio when I was in Santa Fe with my parents, in early September. I had stumbled across this cute place called Modern General, (which is also opening up a new shop in Austin shortly!) and they got in contact with me about doing a fun mini photo and video shoot showcasing the shop. Alex Ignacio is the photographer who works at Narrative Media, and who was kind enough to shoot these photos (as well as the video, which is to come soon). It was just fun to work together on such a short and spontaneous basis especially with such an amazing shop and space as our backdrop.
For those of you that followed me along on my Snapchat, you definitely know about these cowboy boots. My parents and I went to Kowboyz to find a good pair and I ended up walking away with these bad boys. I really can’t wait for it to be a fall and style these with some dark jeans, a white button down and a leather jacket. Yes, yes and yes.

Thank you so much Alex – you are so talented and I can’t wait to share the video you created! :)
I hope you all have a great week and make sure to check back on Wednesday for the newest Weekly Edit post here on the blog, and my newest video on my YouTube channel! xo

We arrived in New Mexico yesterday in the late afternoon, hopped in a rental car and made our way to Santa Fe. After settling into our cute little B&B, we drove into town to explore the main downtown Plaza area. The light was so beautiful and it was the perfect temperature outside.
After walking around a bit and checking out the shops, we headed to dinner at Tomasita’s for some classic Northern New Mexico cuisine. We had yummy crisp beef tacos, blue corn chicken enchiladas and sopaipillas, which I had never had but really enjoyed. Everything was so good!
Afterward, we hung out in our suite and played a few hands of Rummy before heading to bed. All in all, it was a great day and I am so excited to explore more tomorrow!

Flying vibes – stripes and oversized sunnies, always.
On Friday, I flew home to Seattle for a little family time, which was just what I needed. As much as I love New York, sometimes I just need to be on my other coast to feel grounded and renewed.
I have some fun videos coming up this week and will have even more outfit posts and videos to share the following week after Memorial Day weekend, but for now, here are a few photos from my phone over the past few days. xo
Even though this photo is a little grainy, (I really need the iPhone 6!) isn’t this view incredible! This was taken about 20 minutes (flying time) away from landing in Seattle. Aren’t those mountains breathtaking?!
My beloved Barney, and my Dad’s morning latte that he makes me, complete with a Barney foam face.
My amazing Dad at the beach with me yesterday, helping me taking photos for the blog, and videos for YouTube. Dad, yare the best ever.
My sweet friend Jenna, who I have known since I was five, came over on Saturday and brought paint, a brush and paper so that I could make a Barney paw print to frame for my apartment. Such a sweet and genius idea.
Barney “hiding” in the plants outside in our backyard. He is such a funny pup.
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! xo
So you know when you have that kind of week when you are constantly one day off? I thought yesterday was Tuesday and then last night when I was editing my YouTube video, it was past midnight as I was scheduling it, so I guess the computer read it to go live on April 22nd not the 21st. Awesome.
Anyway, I did actually catch it in time and got it up around 7pm, thanks to my Godmother who texted me about it not showing up earlier in the day. Thank you, Margret! :) Regardless of that small snafu, I do in fact have a new video ready in case you guys didn’t catch it yesterday, so take a look if you have a moment ! xo
Casey and I spent this past weekend in Dallas on behalf of Mary Kay to attend the 50th Anniversary of the Academy of Country Music Awards, which was an absolute blast. I should be getting more photos from the weekend soon and will share them once they arrive, but in the meantime here are some iPhone snaps from the past few days.
My welcome goodies at The Joule Hotel :)
Inside Mary Kay’s original office!
I finally got to wear my WHITE BIRKS. YES!
What I wore to attend the ACM Party For A Cause. I love these cowboy boots…I found them in a vintage shop years ago and unfortunately never really wear them, but they were definitely perfect for this weekend!
Casey and I just before they evacuated us from our seats due to a tornado watch. Yep. That happened. We spent the next few hours huddled wherever could find some shelter from the crazy blowing wind and rain. Sadly, we missed the show all together because they didn’t resume until 11:30PM. Such a bummer, but an adventure nonetheless!
I will have more outfit shots of what I wore this weekend up tomorrow as well as a new YouTube video, so make sure to check back to see all of that. But if you want to see more behind the scenes from this weekend, find me (or sign up if you haven’t already) on Snapchat and follow me at mystylepill. I snapped a bunch of live music by Garth, Reba and more!
Hope you guys had a great weekend and I’ll see you tomorrow!
And thank you Mary Kay for having us, it was an amazing weekend! xo
Hey everyone and happy Thursday! Aren’t you so happy the weekend is just around the corner. I know I am because tomorrow I am escaping the city with Casey for a quick weekend to Dallas, where the weather is supposed to be 70 degrees! I will be down there with Mary Kay for the Academy of Country Music awards (more on that to come) but in the meantime, if you have a moment, take a minute to check out today’s video. It is all about what I am packing to bring with me and I will be debuting how I styled everything up on next Tuesday’s video, so stay tuned.
P.S. I will be Snapchatting all weekend long, so follow me at mystylepill!
