Guess where I am today?

Ok well, some of you will say Maddee, I have no idea…and others will respond ummm Texas?

I am gypsy by nature.

But yes Texas is the correct answer, and today I am working the Texas Cotton Ginners Association Annual Meeting and Trade Show here in Lubbock.

Growing up in Oregon, we don’t produce cotton in that part of the country. Needless to say the first time I saw a cotton module I had no clue what it was. As an intern for Plains Cotton Cooperative Association (PCCA) it has been an eye opening experience.

Today’s Challenge is about all that cotton to you likely wear all the time!

Denim! Is the name of the game around our office as we sell SAFEDenim Jeans out of the Lubbock headquarters. SAFEDenim stands for Sustainable, American, and Friendly to the Environment.

In response to my post from earlier this month:
{fit to be tied}

Ladies and gentlemen, I did it.

I rocked a necktie, for an entire day.

It was great!
Actually, I think for the first time in my life I was jealous of men and their tie-wearing ease.
Fleeting jealousy, it was.

So here was my Saint Patrick’s Day 2012 outfit:

saint patrick's day fashion, women wearing neckties, green skinny tie, skinny tie, girl wearing tie, green tie

Slightly awkward.. Green beer in hand would help this picture tremendously.

Keys to rocking a necktie confidently:
1) Go bold, go bright: choose a tie/blouse/blazer which is a color you wear well, or a in traditionally feminine color
2) Dress it up: over do the accessories which scream you (in my case, hair-clip + statement ring + bangles)
3) Details, people: I chose this top over a seersucker pink button down because of the plaid cuffs and collar. Wearing the tie at a looser fit also made this a winner for me.

Bottom line: I WILL BE WEARING TIES.
And I’d love to work some bow ties in there too, if I could find the perfect pattern.

Until next time, get out there and try something new! You might just like it.
