Cubicle Chic – Farm Style

Cardigan: Forever 21 | Blouse: Amelia’s Boutique | Skirt: H&M | Boots: Steve Madden | Necklace: Borrowed from Mom

Hello from Indiana! I’m here for the week and then this weekend I’ll be heading to Arizona for Creative Estates, squee can’t wait!!

My parents live in the far outskirts of neverland California where half of the day it smells like cow manure.  Oh, it’s not as bad as it sounds though, you really get used to the smell and you don’t smell it inside the house while you’re eating dinner or anything.  But it just amazes me how much farm land is around their house and the fact that they were all eating grass at the same time, it was really picture perfect.  I felt a little bad getting close to the cows, because as I did, the would back up, case in point in that first picture.  This is truly a different side of California than all the traffic and Hollywood glitz and glamour.  And a special shout-out to my Mom for letting me borrow her necklace and being such a great photographer, she even used my DSLR.

Oh and I really did go to work in this outfit earlier in the day, so hence the Cubicle Chic, I’m really in love with that tank top and cardigan.  And I don’t know how many times those boots have been an appearance on le blog but I know it’s probably like every other outfit post haha, yea I really heart them.

P.S. I’m featured as the Girl of the Blogosphere this week over on Walk of Fashion!  Head on over and leave me some love over there and don’t forget to follow her fabulous fashion blog! :)

  1. i love that tank top too!!! so chic. i was born on a dairy farm in wisconsin, and many of our family vacations involved other relative’s farms, so i totally understand the country smell and how easily you get used to it. it’s funny how i did a total 180 and moved to big cities. i still have some dirt-between-my-toes country girl in me though. :) these are such fun photos!

  2. Well those boots are gorgeous. I do like your top and cardi too. Very pretty.

    I’m kind of terrified of cows. I always feel like they are staring at me.

  3. I love this outfit! So pretty and feminine! And what a fun background to do an outfit posts :) The cows were probably wondering what the heck was going on!

  4. aww i love this outfit and post!! my parents live out in the country way west of chicago and its always fun to see them and the animals. SO different than the city :) but its a nice change! xoxo jcd

  5. I hope you are having fun with all the traveling! You look so adorable. I love the hues of this outfit and the details in the shirt. That definately looks like the midwest! Just like Ohio where I grew up! :D

  6. where “neverland” california? because my grandparents live in turlock and i have family in bakersfield…

    both places where i consider to be neverland, cali.

    in fact, i’m leaving for bako tomorrow…

  7. Hi Sandy!

    I ADORE your site — the colors, the design, the content! You and your outfit look right at home with the background scenery. I think it’s the boots :)

  8. you are so gorgeous! i love all your outfit posts~~! that tank top is so pretty too…seems like it could go with any outfit. =)

  9. Hope you’re having fun in Indiana! We just drove through the whole state on our way back from Louisville. It’s really not that lovely, but farms sure are!

  10. Adore these photos Sandy! I have driven through this area so many times when I was going to college in Berkeley. It’s so picturesque!

  11. I love the light colors you have going on up top! When I worked in an office, I always found it hard to get into spring dressing with so many boring neutrals in my work wardrobe. But this definitely says spring!! And the farm background is such a fun juxtaposition to the office outfit!
