We traveled to the stockyards for these photos and I really liked the southern 'porch' feel that came from the ceiling fans. Happy accident. I've been receiving a few compliments from readers about how often we switch up locations. I appreciate the feedback, feel free to be critical (but not mean)! Since I'm not a permanent resident of Texas yet and still spend the majority of my time in Minnesota, Alex has been doing such a great job scouting locations and finding new areas for us to shoot. 

I have been really curious about trying the culottes trend. I searched and searched for months for the perfect pair with the right structure and length that I wanted. These fit the bill! The length is great as it shows off the narrowest part of my ankles and has the length of a midi skirt. The structure was just what I was looking for. A fabric that kept the shape and showed off the wide legs of the culotte while still being "flowy".  What do you think? Will you be trying this trend?
