This week, in honor of the fact that I got to go on an actual vacation (WITH my HUSBAND!!!), I decided to show a theme for the Look of the Week as opposed to one celebrity….
The Maxi Dress!!
This dress just screams summer and works for just about all body types…including pregnant! Here are a few that would look fab with your favorite sunglasses and sandals!
This week’s look is from Jessica Biel….great for summer, not so great if you have kids.
But a girl can dream….
Cute top from (my fav.) Banana Republic…
Love these pants…
And now to “Farmer Trophy Wife” it up a little…
This GORGEOUS ring…LOVE! It’s by Shelagh Blatz, an amazingly talented Alberta woman. Just click on the ring to check out her site, when I win the lottery I’m going to clean her store out!!
And you’re set!
Today’s look of the week is actually from Victoria Secret…this is so fabulously styled that I had to share.
Add your favorite white tank and this necklace…
Some cute walking shorts and wedges….
And don’t forget to add the “Farmer’s Trophy Wife” touch….
My front yard is gigantic….really…it take about 3 hours to mow…on a riding mower. And there are a lot of gorgeous flower beds that my husband’s Auntie put in and she has a very green thumb. So, now that we are living in the family farm-house it is my responsibility. Ack!
I have little to no skill in this area of life. And I am definitely a plant and forget about it kind of gardener…I mean I’ll weed and water, but to do more than that….tough luck flowers, you are on your own. But lack of talent or not, I have HUGE dreams and plans for our yard…all stashed away in my “some day” files!! And I’ve come to the conclusion that tackling just one large project per summer is a good way to go. It’s easier on the wallet that way, and with time I can plan and re-plan things that I want to do as we grow into our house and yard. Last year’s project was cedar chips for all flower beds (helps keep the weeds down and moisture in) and a rock-landscaped sand box for the kids.
This year I think I should put more flowers in. I noticed last year that all the flowerbeds were primarily purple. So what colors go well with purple? And the other plan is that I am only spending money on perrieanals…I can’t stand to spend money on flowers to only have them come up once a year. So what do you all recommend?! Remember, I’m in Alberta…it tends to be dry and hot around here…help!!!
This week’s look is Reese Witherspoon…I adore her movies and am super-pysched that she is slated to possibly star in a movie called Black Heels to Tractor Wheels. This is the title of an upcoming book written by my FAVORITE blogger Ree Drummond, it’s a true story about how she (a city girl) met and married her rancher husband…for those not familiar check out her blog The Pioneer Woman and read the first half of the story here….sooo good! Anyways, her book is apparently set to be released around Valentine’s Day 2011 and the movie rights have already been picked up and Reese is considering playing Ree….omigawd!! Could you imagine?! I would want either Reese or Kate Hudson to play me…I better hurry up and get my book done!! 😉 Until then, I’ll just have to love and copycat her look, with of course my Farmer’s Trophy Wife twist!
