bright as the dallas sky

red swing dress_red3adore country music. Everything from Garth Brooks and Dwight Yoakam (linked to their pictures to give you a laugh) to Dierks Bentley and Luke Bryan. All of the radio presets on my car? Country. The only songs (besides Fergalicious, naturally) that I know every word to? Country. And one of my favorite songs of all time?

She’s Like Texas by Josh Abbott Band

“She’s as bright as the Dallas sky.” That line. For obvious reasons, it’s the one I love the most. And it’s immediately what came to mind when I put together this outfit. If you’ve had the opportunity to see a Texas sunset, you’ll understand why. The Lord seems to enjoy painting the sky with rich reds, deep oranges and hot pinks every evening around these parts, and I’m not complaining one bit. Isn’t it crazy what can influence your style?
