Farm Chicks 2012: Find what you LOVE!

This year farm chicks started out a bit dreary and wet! All my fun plans for the morning went out the window as it was pouring out! We thought we would make a fashion statement by wearing bright green ponchos to help keep us dry.

{the only photo of us before the show, thanks Cierra!}

All was well once we stepped in to Farm Chicks heaven as early birds. We take our Farm Chicks Fashion very seriously. Here we are in the outfits we had picked out weeks before. We even made hex nut bracelets!

One piece of Farm Chicks advice: Have a plan. Know what you are looking for! Have color swatches from your home. Photobucket



Here is my friend, Serena! Thank you for all your hard work! We LOVE you!

I wanted to try and really capture this year's theme: Find what you love. I really enjoyed watching those around me search through each booth to find their treasures.

Every year I goto farm chicks I never really have much of a budget to buy but a few small things. It never really bothers me because what I come away from the show with is something priceless. Here are a few examples of those priceless things:
1.Having a weekend getaway with friends and family.
2. No little ones! :)
3. Spending one whole day at the Farm Chicks show!
4. Getting to know other Farm Chicks!
5. Being reunited with all the lovely vendors!
6. Getting to photograph all the things I love!
7. Being inspired by so many creative and talented women!

This was my first year and it was so much fun! I think I enjoyed the fashion as much as the finds! ♥

I am Crying!!! I want a cute little head band and hex bracelet... I want to be standing in the middle of farm chicks right now! Seriously tears, real TEARS, are running... Never again will I miss this happy day. I'm so sad I missed all the fun with my best friends. I love you!
