wide open spaces (and a giveaway!)

May 14th, 2013


One thing that continually astounds me about Texas is how much space there is here.  Growing up in the Northeast and spending most of my adult life in Manhattan, it was crazy to picture how spread out and huge things are in this state.  When people say ‘everything’s bigger in Texas,’ it’s really true — the grocery stores here take up a full Manhattan city block.

But what that means, sometimes, is that about 30 minutes outside a city of two million people, you can have huge expanses that are nothing but wide open fields and a few hardly-trafficked country roads.  And when you stumble across one of those pretty little enclaves, you obviously have to get a couple of photos.

This dress is from the adorable online boutique Social Dress Stop, and they’ve generously offered a giveaway for you guys!  To enter to win a $50 gift certificate to their store, like Social Dress Shop and Sugarlaws on Facebook, and leave a comment below!  I’ll announce the winner next week, but if you find something you love and can’t wait to see if you’ve won, use the coupon code SUGARLAWS for 20% off your purchase!

Gifted Leona dress from Social Dress Shop, Jimmy Choo heels, gifted By Boe anklet.
