Sorry for being a day late posting! The past week has been crazy! NASCAR was in our hometown this weekend and there is always so much to do. My favorite part of the week was hosting veterans from the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America at Charlotte Motor Speedway for Memorial Day. Their stories were so inspiring! FOX even joined us and you can catch the clip here! I hope everyone enjoys the short week. I’m off to catch a flight to Delaware!

Having a crazy week! But just wanted to pop in a share this look and the whole new look to my blog :) Just a warning, this romper continues to sell out. I am wearing a size small and it’s a little tight so if you are in between sizes, size up! Hope y’all have a wonderful week.

Hey y’all! I am excited to head to one of my favorite tracks this weekend… Talladega! Mostly because it is so close to home and I will get to spend time with my family. When I was in college at Auburn, we used to have the best time going there for the races and may have even camped out a time or two :)

Because I travel every weekend, I am using this Sunday to celebrate Mother’s Day! Don’t tell her, but I have picked up a few Alex and Ani bracelets that have special meaning to us. I hope she likes them!

On the fashion tip, this dress runs small. I’m wearing a medium and wish I’d ordered a large. Regardless, I love it and $17 is hard to beat!

I’m back and another year older! I celebrated my 27th birthday on Monday and have never felt so special :) Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday or who celebrated with me. It was such an amazing day!

The past few days have really shown me how good people can be. We all deal with so much crap on a daily basis, it is refreshing to see such strong examples. This weekend, we took Brian Wertman to Bristol Motor Speedway to serve as Honorary Crew Chief of our No. 10 car. He has an extremely touching story and has overcome so much. His excitement of being at the racetrack really elevated my weekend. I feel so lucky to be surrounded by so many amazing people.

Hey y’all! I finally feel like Spring has sprung in North Carolina. We spent the weekend laying out by the pool and grilling out at a friend’s dock. I also did some spring cleaning recently and am selling a number of things over at @ShopCortneysCloset. I finally broke out my white pants, too! These are old, but I shopped around and found the perfect pair of white skinnies and white flares. Can’t wait to share them on here! And you can follow behind the scenes on Snapchat @CortDryden. I’ll be heading to Bristol for the weekend, so you won’t want to miss it! 😉

I have enjoyed a couple off weekends, but we are back at it and on our way to Texas today. Just a quick trip though, one night and then back to Charlotte after the race tomorrow. I wish we had some time to explore, but it will be nice to have Saturday and Sunday at home :)

I just revamped my amazing photographer’s website, TheGlitterLens.com. If you live in the Charlotte area, you’ll have to give her a call. She’s fabulous at what she does and so much fun to be around!

Hey y’all! I hope you enjoyed the weekend. I headed out to the drag strip for my first NHRA experience. Y’all know I love racing and have been to almost every type, except for drag racing. Well, I’m hooked. We were invited into the John Force Racing pit area and got to meet John Force and watch the team work on the cars. I couldn’t believe how different the environment was than NASCAR (and how the alcohol fumes make you tear up!) You’ll have to check it out if you get the chance.

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I am obsessed with bow ties. They really elevate a plain collared shirt! I found this snap back bow tie at Forever 21 recently, but unfortunately it has sold out. The two shirts I linked have them built in and I love them!

Have a great week!
