The pride and love we share for our country is shown year round, but it’s not ever shown as much as when the Olympics come around. Day after day, our nation is divided on important topics, such as religion or politics, but this is the time when we truly come together as one. This year, the Olympics are held in Rio, but back in our homeland, another kind of Olympics are being held. Where the champions receive shiny belt buckles instead of shiny medals. Where trainers and coaches are replaced by the best riders in the world, ready to teach the craft to the next generations of winners. Where hours of training are done on open land or ranches, instead of world class gyms. The Olympics are only held every 4 years, but rodeos are year round, and it’s in this season where our communities truly come together. We set our differences aside to root for the amazing men and women with the talent and dedication to not only get them as far as competing in these games, but to win and make our country proud, just as we do for the Olympics. We put our hand over our heart, and show our allegiance to the flag, the very same flag carried so proudly at the opening ceremonies in Rio. So whether you choose to be a spectator of the Olympic Games, the rodeo back home, or both, there’s no argument the amount of pride we feel in the athletes who represent our country, whether that’s hundreds of miles away or in our own backyard.

Summer in a Sundress
We’re right in the middle of Summer and the temperatures seem to be rising more and more every day.
Sundresses are the perfect thing to wear when you need to keep cool and look good too. Just one article
of clothing can be our entire outfit, and there’s just something about sundresses that make us want to wear
them comfortably all day and show off our sun kissed skin.
One of my personal favorites this season is this Coast to Coast Shift Dress by Miss Me. It’s something I
can see myself wearing over my bathing suit while at the beach, or matching it with a pair of gold sandals
and heading out for brunch on a Sunday morning.
The hem has a unique scalloped lace design I’ve never really seen before and the lace-up bodice with tassled
ties give it a little flair. The dress is short enough that I can wear it all day without my legs feeling
uncomfortably sweaty, but not so short as to get dirty looks from strangers. The fact that it’s sleeveless
will help with the heat and humidity as well.
And yes, it is white, but Labor Day isn’t until September 5th this year so get yours before then!
