I’m against the days, when the skies stay bummer-grey and the cake tastes just okay, okay

Hey All! Happy 2017! I’m so excited about this year and everything that is to come. Something that is very exciting for me is that I just became a Chloe + Isabel merchandiser! I fell in love with the Jen Atkin x Chloe and Isabel line and I had to be a part of it. I’m going to be sharing some fun (more importantly,easy) ways to mix up your hair styles with new accessories.

In this post I’m wearing the Wishbone Pin Set and the Crystal Pave Fan Pin…Cheers to 2017 and making sure there are #nomorehairdonts 🙂 Thank you for following Goldie’s Arrow and remember to always be you and never change! Stay Golden xxWhitney

Newest Obsession: Turbans. I found I’m With The Band on insta a few weeks ago and fell in love. I’m With The Band has the sickest headbands and turbans, they are also made in L.A (I love shopping U.S.A made).  They are perfect for second day hair, yoga, errands, or going out! The Joplin Velvet Turban immediately made me feel much cooler than I am and the Siouxsie Scarf Turban  is super chic and would be perfect for a dressier occasion too! I’m so excited to have these two turbans in my fall line-up and both are under $30!! I also had to post a picture of sweet Oakley with his head out the window! Hope your fall is going well, Stay Golden! xxGoldie

Happy First Day of Fall! It seemed fitting for my first fall post to be Sabrina the Teenage Witch inspired! I went to visit Brooke, my sister,  and per usual we had to hit up Taco Mamas and go shopping in Edgehill! Nashville truly has some of the cutest boutiques and I get so excited to visit some of my favorites like Castilleja, American Threads and Pieces. I found the cutest moon dress and choker this trip and I have been wearing the combo on repeat! I am still loving the 90’s chokers and dresses. It’s so fun to feel like your on Blossom or Sabrina! Pleeeaasse tell me I wasn’t the only Blossom Fan ” woooah” 🙂 Anyway, I hope fall is finding you well! Thanks so much for following and I can’t wait to share some of my favorite fall trends coming up! xxWhitney

P.S. I cannot get enough of snapchat filters and this fawn one gets me every time!

I’m Back!

Hey friends! I am SO sorry this is my first post in a long while! I have to be honest and tell you that this summer has been absolutely crazy! I have a lot of exciting things coming up this year. I am about to open my own hair salon Goldie’s Arrow 🙂 Pat and I are building a house and we are getting married next July. All of these things are such a blessing and I am so grateful, but pairing these life changes with my busiest work season brought me depression and anxiety. It has affected my life in many aspects and really did a number on me the last few months. I know this topic isn’t a favorite for anyone, but I thought if I shared my story maybe it could help someone else!

I couldn’t bring myself to post anything because I felt like putting up images of “me in my cute shoes in a field” was deceiving to anyone reading! I wasn’t in the right mindset to pretend that everything was going peachy keen. After seeing my doctor and talking to those close to me, I found it felt freeing to be honest about what I was going through. In sharing my difficulties I learned that I wasn’t as alone or isolated as thought, and that so many people around me deal with depression, anxiety or both. Mental Health is SO important and I really feel for those who deal with these disorders constantly and severely because it sucks! I’m trying a few methods that have brought me some improvement and I finally feel like the clouds have broken and that little bit of sunshine is starting to shine through! I am still dealing with it, but I feel like after sharing this and being open, I can start to post more of what I love…like my cute shoes while I stand in a field! haha! A big thanks to my support system (family, friends and clients) who comforted me when I really needed it, you are so appreciated!

xx Whitney

The best thing about summer style is just throwing on a cute dress and sandals. It’s so easy to put an outfit together and look like you tried…my type of outfit!! I wanted my hair to look equally effortless so clearly I had to put in some effort 🙂 I added two clip in extensions to make my messy fishtail look extra thick. I can post a tutorial for this if anyone wants to see how I did it! I had the best birthday and what made it even more special was the sweet birthday wishes I got. I have such the most amazing friends and family a gal could ask for! I decided to share some of the love by giving away a Wet Brush for one of my followers and a friend. Our hair really could use some loving in the summer months and the best brush for being gentle is the Wet Brush! I am picking not just one but two lucky winners! Surprise!

Hey All! Sorry it’s been a while since my last post but summer has been absolutely crazy so far!! Anyone else feeling the same? I have to remind myself to enjoy every moment of summer because it comes and goes like flash. If you’ve been following my Goldie’s Arrow blog, you know that I am a huge music and concert lover! It’s such a great way to take a little break from the busy and just enjoy family, friends, good music and beer. A bonus is that everyone is there for the same reason, to have fun!

I wore my Empty Your Pockets Louise Tee from Wildfox to Florida Georgia Line and I got so many compliments! It’s so so comfy and American Made 🙂 That night I saw my third double rainbow in one month! I’ve been so curious what that means, but I’m thinking it’s a good thing!!

This past weekend we got to celebrate the marriage of our friends at the beautiful Ragged Mountain Resort! I had the privilege of doing the wedding party’s hair and the gorgeous bride was a show stopper! It was awesome to be part of such a special day and we had a blast! I mixed up my regular mani by adding a swipe of hot pink to every other nail to give it a little something. I used O.P.I Infinite Shine in To The Finish Lime and Running with the In-finite Crowd  (Currently buy 2 get 1 Free at Ulta)! I got so many compliments on my BEACHROW kaftan…it is my favorite dress I’ve ever worn to a wedding! It kept me nice and cool and hid the amount of beer I drank and yummy food I ate 😉 I’ll definitely wear this one all summer long! Congrats again to Marissa and Colin, warmest of wishes on your happy journey together!!

I LOVE concerts and I just had my first of the summer. I saw Dierks Bentley with my mom, aunt and cousin, which made it extra special! There was a huge downpour before the show, but it left us with a beautiful double rainbow! I wore my Frye engineer boots, thank goodness, because the ground was a little damp. I found my cute choker on Etsy and I got this cute bell sleeve, lace-up, t-shirt from American Eagle. I’m sure your tired of seeing my Ray-Ban Flash Lenses but I just love em’ so much! I’m a bit of a dork and have to buy a koozie from every concert and this time I also HAD to have the “Drunk on a Plane” snapback (clearly this was after a Bud Light or two haha)!! Do you all have any concerts this summer?!

I just got back from visiting my sister in TN and I can’t express how much I love the city of Nashville! It was so good to see Brooke again, and I got to bring my girlfriend Tori along to boot! The sunshine felt absolutely amazing, and it was so nice to throw a dress and denim jacket on to go shopping on 12South. This post’s song inspo wasn’t hard to come up with because we saw Thomas Rhett two times during our visit! It’s such a cool city because you never know what celebrity you’ll see out to eat or shopping on any old day! Speaking of eating… the food in this city is the best.  You have to visit Burger Up on 12South and get the friend pickles. Taco Mamacita in Edgehill is home of my favorite meal. Seriously, we had it twice haha! I always get a  margarita (two of them), appetizer sampler (queso is the bomb), General Homeboy Tacos with Mexican street corn…I promise you this is what dreams are made of! Any other Nashville lovers out there?
