Rio Grande

I just read a tweet that a friend retweeted and it said, "It's a new day." This was exactly what I needed to read at this very moment. The hustle and bustle of every day life lately has been bringing me emotionally, and physically down, and sometimes it's hard to snap yourself out of it. Earlier this morning I read a post on Kate Miss's blog about making happy, and it really spoke to me. Sometimes it's so obvious that the universe is trying to speak to me, and today I'm really going to listen.

I felt really great in this outfit the other day. Scott and I spent the morning sipping coffee with Courtney and taking some fun photos with her, and then we were off to my evening class in West Phoenix. I'm a firm believer that what you wear can have a big impact on your mood, and this outfit definitely brighten my day. My light jeans and Rio Grande clogs put me in the mood to just sit outside and soak in the sun and beauty of the day (even on such a windy day!).

Scott looked especially handsome this day and I just couldn't let him get away without snapping a few photos of him as well.

Lately the weather has been so warm (it was in the mid 80's yesterday!), and it was a perfect day to style up my new Rio Grande Clogs from Ugglebo Clogs. Their new spring collection is amazing, but out of all of the their new styles the Rio Grandes are definitely my favorite. I love the weaving detail, and how easy they are to walk in. They also fit like a charm, and I can't wait to style them up more this spring and summer. I think I also may need this style in all the colors it comes in! I seriously can't get enough of them! If you haven't already checked out Ugglebo Clogs new SS12 collection, I highly suggest doing so!

Today I have a big research proposal to turn in! I'm crossing my fingers on this one! I've written hypothetical research proposals before, but have never had the actual intent on doing them. I'm hoping this one goes over really well and I won't have to make any changes to my research design. It's kind of crazy to think about how I am legally allowed to research humans now. Last semester I had to go through hours of training to be certified! So crazy! I also plan on picking up some iced coffee and making the best out of the rest of the day!

What are you up to today? Any thoughts on being down and turning things around? XO

  1. I agree, an outfit has a big impact on our mood. For me, simply dressing up more gives a feeling of purposeful and celebratory living. Dressing comfortably yet chicly (is that a word?) makes me feel comfortable in my own skin & and that I'm living life luxuriously. Good luck on your research proposal!

  2. Love the little details in your outfit, the whole thing looks comfy and stylish all at once ;)
