This weekend we made a road trip back "home" to Alvin to visit my parents. I have only gotten to see my mom once since her neck surgery and was itching to revisit her again. She has been such a trooper and come a long way in a few short weeks. She is finally starting to get out of the house, move her arms and do more for herself. We had a family pool day at my sister's house on Saturday and it was so great to see her laugh and smile again. It was food for the soul...for all of us.

Sunday Ross and I drove around our old stomping grounds to find a location to shoot this fun boho inspired dress I picked up from a friend's local boutique. More on that in a minute. We randomly came across this vacant building that sits along side the railroad tracks. I was so excited when we walked around back and discovered the window etching on the doors. This is where I grew up and spent 18 years of my life. My roots, so to speak. To see the name of the town where I grew up in the photos just makes me smile. It may not be the fanciest city on the map and hasn't grown much since we left, if any, but it will always be the place we call "home".
A close friend of ours has the cutest boutique in Round Rock called Mays Street Boutique. She began her business with a home decor focus, but recently broadened her offerings to clothes as well. I grabbed this dress late last week and if you love it as much as I do, be sure to give her a call and tell her I sent you (512-248-2555). They will take payment over the phone and ship to U.S. residents. They only carry a few sizes in each piece. I am wearing a small for your reference. This is a great dress for the upcoming season. I plan on wearing it again with riding boots and a denim jacket.
If you are local, be sure to stop in her shop. She has a fab selection of Kendra Scott pieces and will soon be carrying Alex and Ani bracelets. Plus, her home and patio decor are to die for!
You can stay up to date with her inventory and special promotions by liking Mays Street Boutique's Facebook page. Gotta love supporting local businesses owned by women. Happy shopping!
