1. FALL ACCESSORIES // Pendleton,  The Village Shop:

Every fall, I look forward to wearing Pendleton’s fabulous iconic designs. I can’t get enough of their creative/wild/colorful prints. These scarves just arrived at The Village Shop and we are smitten! Pair with nearly any outfit for an instant stylish bohemian feel.

2. ORGANIC BEAUTY //Alitura Naturals,  Clay Mask:

I can’t say enough about how amazing this clay mask is! I’ve had problem skin all through my 20’s I’ve tried tons and tons of products, creams and masks. This is hands down, my all time favorite! It has AMAZING organic ingredients (which is harder to find then you might think!) I love how the creator breaks down each ingredient and not only tells you what it is, but how it will help your skin!

3. EVERYDAY NECESSITY  // Bkr BottleExhale Pilates Studio:

I never thought I could like a water bottle so much. I know that sounds a little funny, but there’s something about finding a product that is just all -around awesome that is so satisfying! Bkr Bottle is it! This water bottle is the perfect size for my bag– it goes everywhere with me. To the gym, work, travel and and beyond this bottle does it all. I picked up mine at Exhale Pilates Studio in Whitefish, MT. They always have a great selection of colors and sizes in stock (as well as Lululemon, but I’ll save that obsession for another day).

4. BACKPACK // The Jenny Bag, The Frye Company  :

I am so in love with all the fun backpacks that are happening this year! So fun to see this classic style back, and better than ever! Frye designed seven fantastic backpacks, this one, The Jenny Backpack, is my favorite. In addition to a backpack, it can also be carried as a hobo shoulder bag. (Last summer I featured the Elaine Vintage Backpack check out the post here.)

5. DINNER // Chicken Enchilada Lasagna : I made this for dinner the other night…then proceeded to eat it for the next couple days as it is one of those dishes that is almost better left over and cold! I can’t get over how easy and delicious it was. I love Julie’s blog, PaleOmg. She has great healthy recipes and is seriously hilarious.

White Hot Summer Days

style me montana, melissa richardson, robert richardson, joes jeans, white dress, frye boots, taylor swift boots, montana, whitefish, sun hat, boho jewelry,  I love how classic and timeless a little white sundress can be. It’s the perfect blank canvas to add lots of personal touches to make it more “you.” I love the subtle details of stappy bralettes peeking out from under tiny summer straps. I also loved adding a large beaded necklace and the perfect pair of boots. These Frye vintage-feel booties add the perfect country-girl chic to any outfit.

Hope everyone is having a fabulous summer! Enjoy these images taken west of Whitefish, Montana. The canola fields couldn’t have been more beautiful!

I had so much fun taking these photographs on a perfect summer evening in Montana, just last week. Robert Richardson Photography (my talented brother-in-law) and I always have such a great time collaborating. The canola fields were in full bloom just a few minutes from town, which created a stunning background. And of course, my feet were super happy in my new boots.

The contest will run for one week and the winner will be announced on Sunday, July 27th. Good luck!
