Summer Vibes

It’s been a crazy busy summer at my house this spring/summer and once again, Red Dirt Style been neglected. It happens. Spring is crazy for photography and end of the school year madness and then comes G Fest. My husband and I run digital marketing for G Fest, which is a really awesome 3-day music festival in Muskogee, OK. That’s another blog post I’m saving for next week. 🙂

Now that things have slowed back down, I’m looking forward to featuring more of my summer fashion finds! I bought this dress from Hazel and Olive a few weeks ago and just now got a chance to wear it out! It was super lightweight and comfy on this hot Texas night. I grabbed a slip to wear under it, but I ended up not even needing it. So it’s thin, but not sheer. I don’t typically wear a lot of bright colors, but I’ve vowed to work on that for this season. The bright pink really pops and the embroidery is one of my favs!

Great news – this dress also comes in black and dusty plum too!

In the back, there’s a draw string so you can loosen/tighten around the shoulders.

Black and White Vibes

I stopped in American Eagle last week and hit the jackpot! They are my favorite go-to spot for festival fashion. I got two new outfits and had my eye on several others! Right now they are doing B1/G1 50% off shorts and jeans and they also have 40% off dresses and rompers!

The first thing I eyed when walking into the store was this off the shoulder embroidered top. Off the shoulder tops are HUGE this spring/summer! Such a cute look to dress up with black skinny jeans or throw on some cutoff shorts and sandals and dress it down.

These black high-waisted jeans are so flattering. The high waist allows for zero muffin top! After 3 kids, Lord knows I need all the help I can get in that area! ha!

So, what music festivals are you headed to this spring/summer? I hit up 95.3’s TTMR this past weekend to see Kacey Musgraves and I can’t wait for G Fest in Muskogee, OK June 15-17!

Bluebonnets

I’ve never seen anything more beautiful than a field of bluebonnets. It truly is a treat every spring in Texas. Everyone goes crazy for bluebonnets. I was shopping in Loft recently and I knew this would be the perfect outfit for bluebonnets. The scalloped edges, the embroidery, it’s a perfect spring outfit!

The shirt is a great fit and even runs big, so size down. The shorts fit true to size and the length is perfect. Not too short, not too long. It’s hard to find shorts at that perfect length.

If you’re in Texas, go frolic in the bluebonnets this weekend! They’re beautiful!!

Romper

I try my best to shop at local boutiques. It’s just something that I’ve become accustomed to since living in Texas. We have some of THE BEST boutiques here. However, sometimes I have a 3 year old and two 6 year olds in tow. In that case, you can find me in Target. Load them up on Icee’s and Popcorn and I’ve got a solid hour of good behavior out of them. 😉

I knew I loved this romper when I saw it….because it wasn’t short. I’m too tall to pull off a shorts romper. I just love the fabric, design and fit of this romper. Size up if you’ve got a long upper body, like me. So glad I went for something out of the norm for me. I just love it!

Little Hippie

I was strolling through Target last week when I stumbled upon this shirt in the girls’ department. My first thought was….”Do they make this in my size?!”. Then I thought “It’s too bad I don’t have a little girl to buy this for…maybe I’ll just buy it just in case I have one.”. Then I snapped back to reality and the fact that I’ve got my hands full with 3 little boys. The next person that came to mind was little Sunny!

We were in Nashville last week and we always make sure we make time to see our college friends when we’re there. Sunny’s dad and my husband were roommates at Belmont University…oh the stories I’ve heard. We have THE BEST time every time we’re with them. My boys love playing with Sunny and her big brother!

We were at Sunny’s house hanging out and I mentioned to Sunny that I had a special present for her if she’d help me model. She didn’t hesitate…she was IN! She has the sweetest smile, laugh and hippie spirit! I just love her!

Nashville Style

We’ve been in Nashville all week visiting  friends and family. It was pushing 80 degrees when we left Dallas last Friday and it was SNOWING when we woke up in Nashville on Saturday! It has been rainy, snowy and cold all week. Looks like it’s back to spring weather as soon as we head back home. Go figure.

Hippie and Haggard was nice enough to help style me on this trip. I wore this cute tank and kimono while wondering around downtown Nashville and cute little downtown Nolensville today. I got so many compliments on the kimono! Super cute!

Go With The Flow Maxi

I went into Hazel and Olive a couple weeks ago looking for a few certain items and to pick up these dusty rose booties that I had ordered online. They sell out of merchandise so quickly and unfortunately they were out of stock of the items I was looking for. Miss Emily suggested that I try on this maxi dress and I have to tell you, I was very leery. I typically play it safe with solid colors and this is everything but that! ha!

I tried on the dress really quickly and then decided that I’d throw on the booties I’d already purchased just for fun. Turns out, I looooove the combo! Emily tied the dress in a knot on the side so it would show off the boots even more.

Guys, before I could even get pictures taken, this dress was out of stock! I’ve been keeping my eye on their website waiting for it to be back in stock, but it’s still not. However, there are a few other prints and some solids available too! Go check it out and see if anything speaks to you! 😉 I just know that I love this dress because it’s cute AND comfy. It’s like I’m running around in a nightgown. A really cute one!
