Back in Black + 10 Inspiring Springtime Quotes
Rad Maverix

 

And she's back. Back in Black.

I don't know how anyone could ever get tired of wearing black. My favorite colors include black, dark black, light black, pastel black, faded black, neutral black and pitch black. Even in the spring and summer I tend to gravitate towards black. I'm sharing a simple #ootd and my favorite springtime quotes to inspire you to live a little more this springtime.

Spring has always been a reset button or a re-birthing of some sort for me. The flowers start coming back to life, you actually want to be outside and we can't forget about the cleansing affect from the thunderstorms that Mother Nature tends to bring us. 

 


springtime challenge

I challenge you to check one thing off of your bucket list (or create a list!) this spring. Go to your local zoo, have a picnic, go pick fresh fruit at a local farm or plant your very own garden! Visit all of the best flea markets or create a sassy flower crown. Don't forget to open your house/car windows and enjoy the fresh breeze!

10 inspiring springtime quotes

"Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush." - Doug Larson

"With the coming of spring, I am calm again." - Gustav Mahler

"You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep the Spring from coming." - Pablo Neruda

"Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!" - Robin Williams

"I believe in process. I believe in four seasons. I believe that winter's tough, but spring's coming. I believe that there's a growing season. And I think that you realize that in life, you grow. You get better." - Steve Southerland

"It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade." - Charles Dickens

"An optimist is the human personification of spring." - Susan J. Bissonette

"I am going to try to pay attention to the spring. I am going to look around at all the flowers, and look up at the hectic trees. I am going to close my eyes and listen." - Anne Lamott

"Science has never drummed up quite as effective a tranquilizing agent as a sunny spring day." - W. Earl Hall

"The spring wakes us, nurtures us and revitalizes us. How often does your spring come? If you are a prisoner of the calendar, it comes once a year. If you are creating authentic power, it comes frequently, or very frequently." - Gary Zukav

Love Will Always Shine Brighter Than Fear

These are *seriously* my favorite jeans. I could literally sleep in them...they are so old + so broken in...so soft. I paired them with a badass Eve West Chella Babe choker, Rad Mav tee and of course a slouchy sweater just for good measure.

YAY for a new YouTube Video!!  Last weekend we got a chance to get away from the Rockin' JF Ranch and do a little shopping, eating + relaxing in Tulsa. We enjoyed lunch at one of our favorite restaurants, Los Cabos and did a bit of shopping at Golf Galaxy, ULTA & Best Buy. Follow along in the vlog below!

98 Cows x Rad Maverix Photo Shoot
IMG_3014.jpg

"...anything worth having is worth working for..."

I silently kept repeating this quote as I prepped for a photo shoot the (cold + bitter) morning of November 25th. It was a brisk 30 something degrees (w/o the windchill) and I was atop a windy hill in nothing but my undies; as I desperately tried to change into my first outfit. 

Luckily, photog and long time friend, Kaci Jo arrived with cameras and coffees in tow. A Starbucks Pike Place Roast was just what I needed to break the ice-cold morning chill.

At the time of this shoot, my friend, Lex, was getting ready to open the 98 Cows Tulsa location (NOW OPEN!) and we wanted to put together some shots as a collaboration between the two brands. 98 Cows is a super chic cowhide + sheepskin gallery with 4 locations: Loxley, Gulf Shores, Santa Rosa and now Tulsa, OK. Basically both brands are a match made in heaven. Rad Maverix + 98 Cows are both a fine mix of western lifestyle with a touch of classic flair for good measure. 

Check out our collab photos:
