Cold Shoulder: Lace Top + Skinny Jeans + Wedges

Monday, May 30, 2016


Hello! Weather Report: it is hot today. Like really, really hot. Each year, there is a certain weekend that hits Arizona that makes every single Phoenician rethink all of their life choices that led them to living in the desert. This weekend was "that weekend." Even the simplest of outdoor tasks (ya know, such as walking 100 feet from the parking lot in to the grocery store) requires lugging an entire gallon of water with you and half a bottle of sunscreen on your skin. It honestly serves as a reminder to all of what an unforgiving, relentless bitch the desert can be... Oh, and to stay hydrated. That is of utmost importance, folks.

How are you spending your Memorial Day? (Side note: thanks to the unintentional patriotic color scheme of today's outfit, wouldn't it have been a perfect option for the afternoon's cookouts?) Whatever you end up doing, I hope you are off of work, relaxing, and enjoying time with your loved ones!

Pink & Pleather: Moto Jacket + Hoodie + Tank + Shorts + Converse

Sunday, May 22, 2016


Hello, friends! I do believe that today marks the first time in 2016 that I'm featuring a pair of shorts in a blog post. I must be honest with you, though: at 27 years old, I do feel I am getting a tad too old to wear jorts. [For those who may not know, "jeans" + "shorts" = "jorts."] Maybe that is a crazy thought, but I really didn't think I would still be wearing them this close to 30, ya know? However, I also didn't ever plan to live in a place where it is consistently 100+ degrees all summer; therefore, I am giving myself a "Denim Shorts are O.K. For Any Age" pass for as long as we live in Phoenix. I mean, if I don't give myself this pass, and I have to wear pants May-September, I will die, you guys. DIE. [Seriously. It's so damn hot out.]

Brush It Off-Ya-Shoulder: Dress + Heels

Saturday, May 14, 2016


Happiest of weekends to you! Did this past work week just seem like the longest ever? It did for me, which is why I am extra ready for the weekend. It also makes me super motivated to start planning our next trip. Matt and I have been looking forward to heading on another trip to Europe later this year. At this point, it's just about time to start scheduling and booking our flights, rooms, and whatnot -- which is just the most exciting! (For real, though, get me out of this 100 degree heat - yes, it's already in the triple digits in PHX - and over to Spain!! Oh, and once in España, I fully intend to dance all over the country in this little off-the-shoulder number. So perfect for shimmying, right?)

What are your plans for these next glorious two days? Matt and I are working on spring cleaning - which, in our case, means deep cleaning and finding all of the random, hidden places that our pets' fur has been getting all over for the past few months. Seriously, as I think anyone else with at least four animals will agree, every. single. time. that you think you've discovered all the fur tufts, you find out three seconds later that you are very, very wrong. There is fur. Everywhere. Always. (But they're worth it, of course, those sweet, cuddly fur babies of ours!)


With Style & Lace: Jacket + Tank + Skinny Jeans + Ankle Boots

Hi there! Is your neighborhood just absolutely erupting with flowers right now? Our 'hood is fully abloom, and it just makes me so happy. There's nothing else quite like walking the dogs with Matt, surrounded by all the colors of the desert landscapes (which are stunning, in case you've never experienced them in person before). Today's post is proof of that - as you can probably tell this gigantic bougainvillea kinda steals the show, does it not?

Also, please let me apologize for my absence lately! Did you miss me? Because I certainly missed you. However, the reason for the lack of posts is due to the fact that I've spent the past two weeks hanging out with my family who has been visiting. (One of those weekends also included the stomach flu from Hell that took out the whole household for three solid days. That was a bummer... Thank the lawd that is done and over with!)

Sadly, though, my mom left back to Ohio last week, and my sister and niece return to the east early tomorrow morning. Matt and I really enjoyed having everyone here in Phoenix, and it's always sad to say goodbye, of course. But, alas, eventually adult life beckons us all back to our responsibilities... Le sigh... Until next time!
