As I sat back and tried to think of a blog for this week I got this picture sent to me !
What does this represent? Pretty much me in a nutshell! Chanel glasses, a Shelley Seagal dress, pearl earrings and rubber boots! It really captures everything that is me.
What is the purpose of today’s blog? That you can be a farm girl and not sacrifice being a girly girl too. I had the opportunity on this very special day to travel to
, a lovely little community on
the coast to speak to the Sigma Alpha Professional Agricultural Sorority.
It was a terrific morning where I shared my passion for agriculture with
some amazing young women dedicated to the future of our industry. They were fun, passionate and smart! I truly loved the time I got to share with
them. Like any other speaking event I
enjoy wearing a dress, I think they are fun and classy and look nice when you
have to appear before a group. Just my
opinion~ and this day I picked a fun little number I found at the Saks 5th
Ave outlet, it is a Laundry by Shelley Seagal shift in various shades of blue ~
I love it . I paired it with black high sandals and pearl earrings, not too
over the top but I thought a nice choice to speak to a bunch of girls. San Luis Obispo
After my speaking fun I travelled back home but wanted to take the opportunity to swing by a good friends home to see her daughters hog she had for the county fair. Lucky for me Jo had a pair of rubber boots in my size that I popped right on in trade for the strappy sandals and headed to the hog barn. It did not take me long to hop in the pen with RB (short for red boy) and check it all out. It was like I had come home. Just a great break that really cut up the drive travelling back home.
So what exactly is my point with all of this ~ I never sacrifice being a girly girl when I can. I love dress up and accessories and fun stuff but underneath I am as farm girl as they come, never hesitating to jump into a pig pen to get in where all the action is. Being a farm girl is at the core of who I am, you can dress me up but you can’t take that away from me! Clothing is a decoration for personality, but it’s what’s on the inside that makes you who you are!
Blessed that I found a balance between fashionista and farm girl!
Hopefully my time spent with the amazing ladies of Sigma Alpha showed them just that ~ You dont have to sacrifice one love for another ~
Until next time ~
