It’s so nice to see more sun popping out here in Nebraska. I’m always on the go, so lately I’ve been searching for lower maintenance clothes I can throw in my luggage and not worry about steaming out wrinkles. This off-the-shoulder top from Guess is perfect for spring and summer. Bare shoulders equals a sun-kissed glow and staying cool.

“Confidence is the way we meet our circumstances, whether they’re wondrous and wonderful or really hard and difficult. It’s almost like a whole heartedness, where we’re not holding back. We’re not fragmented. We’re not divided. We’re just going toward what’s happening. There’s an energy to it.”
I wanted to start off this post with a quote from one of my favorite books, The Confidence Code by Katty Kay and Claire Shipman. Thanks to Meghan Small I had the opportunity to speak with a group of fantastic young women about being confidence, knowing yourself, knowing your value and how to live a happy life.

A few months ago, she reached out to me, wanting to shoot and I happily agreed. She spent hours decorating and hanging flowers before I arrived so everything would be perfect. I loved hearing her journey to photography and how passionate she is about helping the girls in her town, Fullerton. We played with a whimsical look for this shoot and I had a great time exploring Fullerton some more. Keep your eyes peeled for the next outfit, coming soon!

My Miss USA travels brought me back to Texas for boot camp recently and I couldn’t resist a day trip to Austin. The weather was immaculate, flowers were blooming and the sun was as bright as ever. Jonathan, my friend Olivia and I jammed so much into one day, but I couldn’t be happier! I got to visit the South Congress Kendra Scott store and finally meet Julia, who is on the KS Affiliate Team. Kendra Scott has been so generous to me over the years, starting from when I was a student reporter all the way to now. She’s sponsoring me for the Miss USA pageant this summer, so you can bet I’ll have the best accessories!
