City meets Country

Sunday, March 13, 2011

Hello Ya'll, today I wanted to share a little of my roots with you. I grew up in Central California, and for those of you who don't know, it is not near the beach :) Central California is full of agriculture and livestock. I come from a family of Artists and Cowboys... seriously my Father is a commercial artist during the week and a cowboy on the weekend. Despite my up bringing I knew my fate did not lie in the backwoods of California. My outfit today is an example of how I mesh my family culture with my own personal style. My Husband and I took these photos while walking down Hollywood blvd, which in itself is an adventure. My outfit today cost $19.47. My skill of thrift is definitely rooted in my heritage!!
