I am back in New York after a fun, relaxing, and eventful trip home to Texas.  We fit both our families and several friends into a 9 day “Tour de Tejas” as I have come to call it.

I love the feminine lace with the romantic country side.  The denim shirt and utility vest make the outfit feel casual with a hint of country.  But, of course, I had to play it up with a statement necklace – my favorite accessory.  These boots have seen better days, but hey, that just means I got good wear out of them. 🙂

I hope everyone enjoyed their time off and is ready to kick off the new year!
