ASHTON REYNOLDS PHOTOGRAPHY

Every now and then, you meet someone by chance and instantly feel like you could be best friends with them. That is the case with Ashton. We connected on Instagram through her idea of a western styled maternity shoot. It took me like 3.6 seconds to say Y E S. Her style is absolutely beautiful and I could tell through her posts that we would get along great!

We had Ashton meet us in Checotah down a dusty dirt road on a hot August evening and she didn’t complain one bit! We trailered the horses there (Wren’s new colt Roscoe being one of them) and began shooting around sunset. She captured 2 hours worth of photos. During that time we jammed to Cojo, got to know one another and laughed at Gus’ model behavior. (I think he enjoys being behind the Iphone camera/drone better – #InstagramHusband)

It was literally my dream shoot. Ashton organized floral arrangements for my hat and for the mare from The Flower Shop in Pryor. She also collaborated with Calli Co Silver so we were able to borrow some gorgeous authentic turquoise jewels that were out of this world! She rented the most rad dress from Reclamation Design Company. She bought Wren the cutest horse onesie and stuffed animal AND brought a dozen cheesecake cupcakes that were to-die-for (hello pregnancy lady cravings)! She certainly did not have to do any of it, yet she did and I appreciate her so much!

These photos will be cherished forever because they portray my immense love for Gustyn and my sweet little babe, Wrenley. In just a few short days we get to welcome her into this world and the bump will be gone but these photos will last us a lifetime.

Ashton – I am so incredibly thankful for you.

Apologizing now because y’all may get sick of seeing my bump and husband but truthfully IDC because I’m just so happy with how they ALL turned out!

2018 NFR Style

Hey y’all! Just dropping in to share some NFR Style. This was our third year attending the rodeo because we love going to cheer on the best cowboys and cowgirls in the world. I walked over 10 miles while I was there shopping. This year they added the RFWA expo so I headed to the plaza for a new shopping experience and I will definitely be going back. Some of my very favorite boutiques and makers were there so I was able to shop small for Christmas and get a few things for myself as well. We also did the typical Cowboy Christmas at the convention center as well as Sands and Mandalay Bay. I got to meet some of my favorite fellow western fashion influencers. I loved putting faces with instagram handles and hope to get to do that again soon!

I put together some day outfits for shopping and then a few night outfits for the rodeo. I began planning these back in June because typical OCD Suz couldn’t wait any longer.I’m already starting to plan for the next rodeo and hope to see some more familiar faces there!

Night One

yellow

I loved this mustard + white outfit. I found these pants on etsy and custom ordered them from Thailand. They were so comfortable and made of great material. You don’t always get that good of quality coming from Asia but after reading the reviews I decided to go for it. The top was actually a dress from Misguided that I altered. It was maybe ten bucks. I paired both pieces with my concho belt that I picked up in a thrift store and my redeemed cowgirl leather cuff. Y’all already know about my filthy hippie pom earrings but if you missed that post- go order you some! They add that extra flare to any outfit and are a MUST have. I also threw on a dainty naja to add more turquoise because without turquoise do you even have an outfit?!

Day Two

Retro

Day two brought to you by a retro western crop top. I found this baby on etsy and purchased it in June. It had exactly what I was looking for in a day time piece. I paired it with some flowy black pants that I’ve had for forever. Obviously we can’t forget to talk about my Saddle tramp earrings. If you don’t follow her on insta you are missing out on hilarious stories everyday. I love following her. She keeps it REAL. My felt is from glam and grit. Such an affordable price and I love the fit!

Night Two 

Blue Outfit

“She’s pretty but she’s too skinny.”  Yeah so that’s what some “man” said while walking past me as my husband snapped this pic. Not sure how it’s nearly 2019 and we are still body shaming women but that’s a post for another day. Anyways…this outfit was the outfit of all outfits for me. I felt amazing in it. This blue number was less than $200 and came from Revolve. I paired it with my lov leathers clutch and the 2 bandits jewelry.

Day Three

overalls

Day three brought to you by another etsy find. I ordered these custom overalls from Thailand when I ordered my yellow pants. They were so soft. This isn’t the best photo of them but I loved them! I paired them with another glam and grit hat and a comfortable white sweater crop top.

Night Three

aztec

This skirt was originally a size ten but I cut it down to fit me. It was a 1970s piece that, again, I found on etsy. I threw on a velvet bodysuit that had a see-through back and called it good for my final night.

 

See y’all at the American! I will likely be doing another ticket giveaway so enter up!
