Ok, so the dust has finally settled enough in our crazy lives to let you know what I’ve been up to. I feel like every year or so I start a blog post with, “Sorry I’ve been gone, there has been a lot going on…” I also feel like that rhymes pretty well lolz. And yes, Patty and her adventures are at it again. This time, my family and I have made the decision to move back to Washington, D.C. for good. Yea, I know what some of you are thinking…again?, what tha?, or I can’t keep up with you. To that I say, your welcome.
We packed up our house, hitched an overloaded Uhaul to our car, strapped in our almost two year old daughter for a 3 day road trip at 55 miles per hour across the country, made a decent bed for our dog in the back and hit the road to D.C. (Total side note, as I was on this wonderful 3 day road trip, I was preparing for a women’s empowerment event with the USO you will hear about soon).
After two months of setting up our new but familiar life, I get a text message from the wonderful Rachael at Dreamy Dwellings Boutique that she has named a pair of earrings after me. I was like “whaaaaaa??? Lil old me?” It was such a compliment to have someone think of me and say: “These earrings are bright, vibrant, sparkly and pretty just like Patty, I think I’m gonna call these the Patty earrings”. LOL just kidding, this was all dialogue in my head, none of that actually happened. Srsly though, Rachael is 100% a pure sweetheart and naming these earrings after me was a huge honor, Thank you Rachael!.
So now that I had jewelry named after me, the next obvious step for a fashion stylist/blogger was to find a great place to take photos, find a great photographer and go pose. Luckily, living in this awesome area all those factors came pretty easy. I found a beautiful mural just down the street from my place, the photographer KeeKee Winslow is the little sister of a dear friend of ours, (shout out to Meryl and Dan for the introduction) and dressing up to pose with these earrings was so much fun. I hadn’t done a blog post in a while, so styling and posing for pics was finally a fun thing I could do for myself after relocating.
These earrings are totally me by the way, I love to wear these colors in multiple ways all year round. They are such a bold statement piece that you can do simple coloring blocking like in my photos or a plain black dress and the earrings do the talking. Of course, the other great thing about them is how budget friendly they are.
I’m such a huge supporter of Dreamy Dwellings Boutique because they offer beautiful statement pieces at great prices. Affordable prices mean you can get a few pairs of earrings for all different types of outfits and events in your life, as seen below.
As happy as I am that we made the decision to move back to Washington D.C., I do miss my Houston friends and the inspiring people that I met there. I have great blog posts coming up with some of Houston’s most talented creatives to close out the Houston chapter in my life. I hope you come back to check those out.
