I’ve come down to the Lone Star State for a little bit of R&R in Dallas with the Husband, and to join my parents for a few nights while they were at a conference. While my step-dad was at his conference, and my Hubs was golfing, my Mama and I decided to make a trip down to Waco to visit Magnolia. I don’t really follow Chip & Joanna Gaines or their tv show, but my Mom does and so we began the two-ish hour drive south. I had no idea what to expect because I hadn’t looked up Magnolia online prior to visiting and so I only knew what my Mom had shared (which wasn’t much) but let me tell you, it was AMAZING! We showed up during some Spring Festival so it was extra extra extra busy, but well worth the hour wait in line and hoards of people. First we went to the main store area, which had some home goods, larger furniture items, books and Magnolia souvenir items ( I got a speckled mug – of course). We also visited some of the tent vendors that were there for the Spring Festival, and walked around the premises. We tried to get into the Bakery but the line was far too long for it to be worth it for us. Bless my Mama, she even let me get blog photos even though we had to wait for the gaggles of people to clear out of our way. She’s the best. Ever. If you’re ever contemplating a visit to Magnolia – do it! I want my entire house and yard decorated the way Joanna decorated this place. It’s stunning and unique.
For my outfit, it’s a matching two piece Lilly Pulitzer set, paired with a pink cardigan from J.Crew. I love this matching set because I’ve found plenty of ways to wear each piece individually – for instance, the crop top with high waisted jeans, a black leather jacket and black booties, or the shorts with a white tank top and pink blazer. No matter what you pair it with it’s going to look great. As a bonus, it’s elastic and stretchy and is so, so comfy. If you follow my blog, or know me at all, you’ll comfortable is my number one BFF. Lilly recently came out with this set in a pink & green pattern too – check them out! As for my shoes, these are new wedges I got for the season, and although I’ve only worn for them a few hours, they seem to be very comfortable. They have lace up ankle straps which I think helps fit them to your feet more, always a bonus!
P.S. If read passed my outfit photos, I’ll have some of Magnolia and my cute Mama.
