I’m heading back to Arizona today for Homecoming Weekend!  To celebrate, I’m rocking my college colors today: red, navy and leopard (Arizona Wildcats — get it?).  I’m so excited to reunite with my best friends, cheer on my team and eat tons of Mexican food so cheers and bear down!

all dressed up.

city meets country.

Okay, so I’ll be completely honest here: I don’t really do country and I don’t do rodeos.  Truth is, I once bought a pair of cowboy boots … and then only wore them once.  Needless to say, I’m much more of a city girl that is occasionally inspired by the country spirit.  So maybe my interpretation involves sequin and leopard — would you expect anything less?
