What they say about Oklahoma is true, it's where the wind comes a sweeping down the plains! When we shot this look, a good ole' Oklahoma Thunderstorm was rolling in! I have a firm grip on my swing dress. All I could do is laugh and pray that I didn't flash the friendly people of downtown Oklahoma City. I like to call these days, skirt alerts! I purchased this dress at a blogger event with The Double Take Girls earlier this spring. I kid you not; I probably wear it once a week. The best thing about this dress? It looks different depending on the accessories that you pair with it. It is kind of on the slouch side, and I found it to be true to size. I am wearing a medium for reference. It also comes in a sleeveless option as well.

Speaking of accessories, how great is this knockout turquoise combination? This necklace is beyond beautiful, and it's a steal at $20! I picked this up at the Pioneer Woman Mercantile. Fun fact, I grew up in Pawhuska, Oklahoma. Making weekend trips back are more entertaining these days now that the Merc is open. Osage County women love their turquoise (both fake and real). This necklace is always in my rotation. These earrings surprisingly pair well with this necklace. You might not be able to tell, but the beadwork is beautiful. They also come in two other colors and make a splash!

Mules have made a big comeback this spring and summer. They are almost everywhere you turn! I wasn't sure if I would be vibing with them, so I went with a cheaper option. I found these babies at Target! Most of the sizes are sold out online. You might be able to find a pair at your local store. I have a feeling that they will be restocked this summer or they will come out with other color options for fall. Don't quote me; I am just merely speculating. I will make sure to keep my eyes peeled! It's safe to say; I am considering adding an expensive pair of mules to my wishlist. I find mules to be a fresh change to my current shoe lineup.

Okay, I feel like I need to have a real moment with you all. True talk, I do not switch out my purse each day to match my outfit. It might seem that way on the blog, but that's not how I live day-to-day. Y'all, just thinking about that gives me anxiety. I am doing good Monday-Friday to grab a pair of earrings on my way out. When I purchase a handbag, I carry it for a few months at a time. I might change it out for a special occasion event like a wedding or date night. Other than that, I stick with it even if it doesn't match my outfit. I think about my big ticket purchase as cost per carrying, and then it doesn't seem so scary! I am sure that's terrible logic. I know this makes me a terrible fashion blogger, but hey I am just keeping it real.
