I love me some Arizona sunsets! Mix that with a desert landscape and you get a breathtaking backdrop! I thought this striped fit and flare dress from Junieblake complimented the natural background seamlessly. It just screams summer with the light-weight fabric and crisp white stripes against faded denim. I played on the chambray element and added a vintage leather belt with an oversized buckle and strappy leather sandals to complete this western look. Stripes are a timeless trend, probably because they make it so easy to mix and match with varying prints and patterns. What is your favorite go-to pattern?
I had to throw up the sign of my soon-to-be alma mater!

It’s safe to say this outfit isn’t lacking in color, but it was fitting for the occasion! I’m so obsessed with this dress from Shabby Apple and especially the multi-colored tassels which I took as a nod to the ones I’ll be wearing at my graduation! I love browsing through Shabby Apple’s dresses, the cuts and fabrics remind me of the “Mad Men” era, or something from Zooey Dechanel’s closet!
I used some of these photos for my graduation announcements because I am graduating with my BA in Journalism with a focus on Public Relations at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication in a little over two weeks! It’s been an honor and a privilege attending such a prestigious college, but I am more than ready to wrap up this era of my life and start a career. While it’s a bit daunting to think of all that comes with entering the “real world,” I’m up for the challenge!

Happy Earth Day! I thought today’s background was fitting for the day, with the the leafy green trees and lush grass!
I am a sucker for fringe. When I saw these shoes, I immediately put them in my online shopping cart and never looked back. Fringe may be my favorite trend right now and I see much more of it filling up my wardrobe in the future.

Here’s another example of my love for mixing metals! This time it wasn’t all in the jewelry, though. I matched the metallic, silver sweater with the silver zippers on the ankles of my skinnies. Then I paired rose gold accessories with my nails with touches of yellow gold throughout, like on my sunnies and in my bracelets! I kept my makeup soft and natural but stayed in the same color-scheme with copper lids & pinky-brown lips.
Also, these new wedges by Sam Edelman are a MUST! I love the added height and the aztec-print detail! They could go with just about anything, and are currently on sale, which is why I think I might need a second pair, but in ivory! Speaking of versatility, I brought along my trusty Calvin Mitchell bag along for the ride. I mean, how could I not? Look at all those pockets, it’s like it KNOWS I have Mary Poppins problems or something.

I love swimsuits, but my love for swim-suit cover-ups is on another level. Cover-ups that are easy to put on and have fun prints and colors have me at hello and BECCA by Rebecca Virtue checks all of those boxes. The crochet one-piece is literal heaven and amazingly stretchy, and the printed pants are versatile and could be worn for more than just swimwear. I am a major fan of this brand for that reason and I cannot wait to get my hands on more, because this Arizona sun is calling my name.
