We made it! After what seems like my entire life, we are finally settled in in Texas. El Paso to be exact! I didn't really have an idea of what to expect, but moving in general vs an ARMY move? Ugh. It's a different level of stress. After living in a hotel on base for 10 days, he finally got his leave so we could get our things released and get in our place (yay!).

So. Now that I've actually gone from living out of a suitcase to living in our unpacked place, I have closet access (insert extreme joy in to this sentence). And, since he isn't at work all day, we actually got the chance to explore our new hometown.

It's been warm, but cool at night, so I wanted to wear easy layers. I started off with this super dope GOTHAM hat (you guys know I love Batman. And miss NYC) I got from the NYLONshop. After adding a red lip, I went with a slip dress and knee socks and leather just in case it got cool. LOVE this look. And so far, El Paso is pretty cool.

  1. My ex was in El Paso before his 2nd deployment and I must say the city had some of the best food ever! Of course everything was super heavy and comfort style, but it was beyond authentic and so tasty. Now that I'm living in Seattle I'd probably never go back to eating as heavy as I did when we were in South Carolina near the base, but you're still eating for 2 for a little bit. Go indulge lol. Glad to hear your man is back home :)
