Places I Have Been: FTF Blog Event 4/6

The ever so fashionable Kristy from Full Time Fabulous created a blog event for all us fashion bloggers to participated in each month. This month's theme is a visual presentation of our heritage, our life, and how it influences our style.

So I have decided to show you all where I have lived and how it has influenced my style! :)

I was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Best known for The Mall of America (down below). I remember shopping with my mom and admiring all the tall buildings when I was little.

After my parents divorced, my dad, my sister and I moved to the wide open spaces of Wyoming! That is when I became a little obsessed with being a cowgirl when I was little. Then when I grew up this is where I studied Archaeology.

Boar's Tusk is a standing volcanic plug and it's actually the core of an old volcano.

Wyoming is the only state to have wild horses...

Flaming Gorge. Where I often hanged out with friends and family. It is one of the only lakes in the United States today that have preserved it's prehistoric forms. You can find many fossils and Native American artifacts and rock art.

I moved to Ashland, Oregon in 2007 to pursue my degree in Criminal Justice.

Meet my boyfriend in 2008 and we have made a wonderful life together in Southern Oregon.

After living in the country and moving to a town that has a very bohemian and "hippy" style I have adopted a bohemian/country style.

There you have it! My life in a nutshell. Hope you enjoyed!

  4. Awww, sweet post! Our family has friends in Oregon, too! It's been a long time since I've been there...I think my family is due another trip there!


  5. I lived in Colorado most of my childhood. And Wyoming has that beat on most days. You miss it? Love the photos and ever easy to see from point A to point B on style!

  6. What a wonderful post- I like how you've taken a little bit of all your places and now they fit you. As for Ashland I've got two words: Rogue Rive Ale. Ok, three words. Yum.

  7. Ooh, Heidi, this was lovely! Who knew there was ever a volcano in Wyoming? I'm learning so much through this blog event, haha.

    So cool to see where life has taken you. I've never been to Oregon, but it looks gorgeous!

  8. Very nice Heidi! you look so happy! Interesting about Boar's Tusk. :)

  9. What a beautiful post. Your pictures are stunning, and I love the photo of you and your boyfriend, so cute!! I loved learning about you and all about these gorgeous places I haven't had the pleasure of visiting.

  10. Wyoming looks pretty amazing! Those pictures are fabulous, I would love to come see that volcano in real life! Thanks for visiting my blog and nice to meet you heidi! :)

  11. Wyoming and its wild horses - something I have always wanted to see. Now that I know about Boars Tusk and Flaming Gorge, it's on my MUST see list.

    This was amazing. Thanks for sharing a bit of you with us!

  12. i really like the bohemian, country look. already have the maxi dress and now i am on the hunt for the maxi skirt. Like how you incorporated yourself, where you are from and fashion all in to one item. Great work!


  13. I had no idea you were from Wyoming! I happen to think it's the most beautiful place in the U.S. I have a close friend who lives in Jackson Hole, and I got to spend a week with her there a couple summers ago. I completely fell in love with the place!

  14. absolutely stunning heidi!!! these photos made me drool. i've been to wyoming before and loved it, so your photos definitely bring back some fond memories. i've never been to oregon but it looks very pretty and your lifestyle there sounds delicious.

    thank you for participating and sharing your world with us! it's lovely getting to know you better. and i love seeing how the places you've lived have influenced your style. =)
