Blue Alabama

A long time ago, I had this shirt in pink and I loved it. But I took it to Europe on study abroad and some very strange blue stain got all over it. To this day I have no idea where it came from, but I ended up having to trash the shirt. As a graduation present, my mom surprised me with a new one - in blue. It has a tiny diamond monogram on the left side in white and I love it. The shorts are old - we all know this by now. The hat is from my most recent DIY project, it will cost you less than $10 to make and it is so worth it !! The shoes are Pierre Dumas and the bandana was bought in a pack off of Amazon. I've linked all of the things similar/the exact same below. Speaking of which, I couldn't find the 3/4 length sleeve on Lands End's website, only the short sleeved. But since we're in summer I would highly recommend the shorter sleeved version. The shirt is so so so soft, it would be perfect. Lastly, the photos were taken at Capitol Park in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. What do y'all think? - xoxo darling, Hayden

Can y'all believe the 4th is just a week away? And it's on a Wednesday, which is just strange but whatever you're doing hopefully you'll have a reason to wear something cute & festive. Above are my favorite looks for the holiday. I'm loving that popsicle purse from Target and those slides from J. Crew. I'm not entirely sure what I'll be wearing on the 4th but here are some past looks: Look OneLook Two, Look Three, Look Four, Look Five, Look Six, Look Seven. And I'm not sure what we'll be doing but I do have some Pillsbury red, white & blue cake mix I've been dying to use. What are y'all wearing or are you looking at the stuff above for inspiration? - xoxo darling, Hayden

Flowers in Arkansas

The other day my mom got an email from Talbots with this top and we both knew I needed it. The color is perfect and I loved the orange detailing along the bottom and sleeves. It is about $54 but you can find coupons online (I used a 40% off!). The shorts are, yet again, my super duper old Kohl's shorts. The shoes are also incredibly old, and are from Pierre Dumas, not Jack Rogers but dang, don't they look similar? 
We took these photos at Crystal Bridges Art Museum, my favorite art museum possibly ever, which will be featured in a blog post at a later date. There are two from inside the galleries at the bottom of the post, the rest are from the trails outside. What do y'all think? - xoxo darling, Hayden

Lincoln Stripes

Oh y'all. This shirt was an instant buy when I came across it in Target. They didn't have my size, so for the first time ever I ordered from Target. I shipped it to the store - because free shipment - tried it on in the bathroom and loved it. The color is "rust" but when you put on a Texas hat it looks like the Co-Op sold it. The ruffle detailing on the sleeves is such a nice touch to the simple shirt. The shorts are incredibly old {you've seen them in countless blog posts} and the hat can be found here. Also, peep the shoes, so #onbrand for Haute Table. My iced coffee is from Scooter's Coffee - it's like Dutch Bros - and I loved it. We were at the Sunken Gardens in Lincoln, Nebraska. I really enjoyed our time in Lincoln, I had been when I was little but remembered very little. The town has beautiful landscaping and trees. This park is run by the city but it seems like a private park when you're there. What do y'all think? - xoxo darling, Hayden

Week Re-Cap

National World War I Museum Tower

This week has been so amazing. I'm not even exaggerating - it feels like an old school roadtrip we used to take when I was little. My dad and I decided {kind of at the last minute} to drive to Omaha, Nebraska for the College World Series. We drove about 1,600 miles to get here and we had a blast along the way. This is only the first half of photos, there will be a lot more next week when I have more time to write blog posts. But I wanted to go ahead and share what we've done. We drove to Tallahassee and then from there went through Alabama to Jonesboro, Arkansas. Outside of Birmingham we grabbed a bite at Full Moon BBQ, we had eaten there back when we drove through Birmingham before. Then we continued on to Mississippi and let me just say this rest area is the best. It is absolutely beautiful, the restrooms are always clean and if you take a picnic you won't be sorry. We then entered Tennessee and decided to visit Bass Pro Shops at The Pyramid. This is something my dad and I had been wanting to visit for a long time. Because a) we love a good tourist attraction and b) we love a good building repurpose. The Pyramid used to be home to a basketball team. The inside of The Pyramid is nuts, there are alligators, boats in water, a shooting gallery, a hotel, etc. There is also an observation deck at the top {if you are afraid of heights, be warned the deck has glass floors}. You get a great view of downtown Memphis and the Mississippi River. We stopped in Cook-Out for dinner {the best southern burger joint?} and then proceeded onto Arkansas. We drove through lots of farm land and then arrives in Jonesboro - Arkansas State's home. I love their logo and they have great branding along the campus streets. 
The next morning we got up and drove through Arkansas and Missouri. We stopped for lunch in Kansas City and then visited the National World War I Museum. It has been recently re-done and it's fabulous. The tower and its two buildings are Art Deco at its finest and the whole thing sits on a hill to look over the city. I would recommend this stop in KC to anyone, seriously, go! After our stop we finished the driving with dinner and craft beer at Blue Blood Brewing Company in Lincoln. If you're visiting Lincoln, go and get the Pastrami Board because, ohmlord, it was wonderful. Honestly we might go back. Have any of y'all been to these places? Let me know, also there are a ton more photos of the stuff described above, below this post - xoxo darling, Hayden.
