Fashion, Beauty and Bulls: Bull Riding and Valentines Day in Old Town Sacramento

By Ashley Michaelsen of, PBR and Monster Energy model

Red Dress

Last weekend PBR had some pretty awesome highlights in Sacramento. Jess Lockwood won Friday, while Gage Gay won round 2 on Saturday. Chase Outlaw won round 3 on Sunday but Jess Lockwood won the championship round on Sunday to Solidify the Victory.

If the weekend wasn’t exciting enough, I got to explore Old own Sacramento and slipped into this awesome wrangler Red faux suede dress. With Valentines around the corner it Inspired me to get into a red dress and some pink heels to embrace the spirit.

Old town has such a charm, between the cobble stone, horse carriages and the architecture.

Obsessed with my Wrangler Fringe faux suede dress and such a steal at $39.20.

Believe it or not, I am not really a “dressy dress” girl so I am always looking for a piece to help dress down my look to complete a more effortless style. Pairing this dress with my Wrangler Denim Jacket really added that effect for me.

Which made it now a very “Day to night” look.

I don’t know if it’s because we are now in February, or this city is just too cute and romantic, but I’m feeling the love in the air!

Maybe is just the dress!

You know what they say, “When in doubt wear red.” 😉
