As many of you know by now (since i keep complaining about it,) the summer heat in Arizona is pretty brutal. Personally, i try to stay as comfortable as i can be in this type of weather, so my wardrobe consists mainly of basics and oversized tops/dresses. I love being able to throw something simple on and head out the door quickly. This oversized dress is a perfect basic piece and might still be available on sale at ZARA! It made roaming around downtown a lot more more bearable under the harsh sun. 
I finally had the pleasure of shooting with the lovely Kristine Morgan. She made our little adventure so enjoyable with her witty personality and funny comments, i can hardly wait to collaborate with her again! Makes sure to head over to her website and blog to take a look at her work! You can also find Kristine on Instagram. Go give her a follow!

Denim wear has become quite the trend this past season and i have to say i'm a bit late to jump on the bandwagon. The Arizona heat is crucial during the summertime so i try to stay away from denim as much as i can.  Regardless, i decided to make due with the few pieces i do have to create my own take on the trend. I went for a very simple and organic outfit and added interest by accessorizing. It is the perfect outfit for an easygoing day of exploring new parts of town, which might i add look nothing like what i would expect to find in Arizona!
A huge thank you to Daniel Primero for continuously being up for exploring and shooting with me, it is always a pleasure. Make sure to check out his Tumblr and Instagram account! He is quite the talented photographer. 
Thanks for checking in! Until next time.

Outfit | Simplicity

As a blogger myself, i would be expected to have lists of blogs to scroll through daily, but to be honest looking at successful bloggers today has become a bit of a drag (and maybe a little bit depressing.) With their expensive clothes and shoes, their styles seem so far out of reach and although inspiring, it is very hard to replicate. While thinking about the concept of bloggers being successful people dressed in fancy clothes i may never be able to afford, i have realized that much of my content normally isn't actual day-to-day outfits, but more so planned photo shoots. So i thought, what would i want to see from a blogger? Personally, it would be so refreshing to see simple outfits that are actually being worn throughout the day to draw inspiration from! So here it is, a simple outfit for those 100 degree weather days out here in the desert. My black top is super light weight which is great for the heat as well as these baggy "boyfriend" shorts if you will. These shorts look almost identical to those $100 One Teaspoon shorts i've been dying to own, but were about $85 less. (Thank you Buffalo Exchange!) My matador hat and black sandals have also been my summer must-haves. They can dress up any simple outfit, which is great for this time of the year where the heat makes it nearly impossible to dress in style. 
I hope my fellow Arizonians are surviving in this crazy summer heat, and to the rest of the world, i wish i were you right now.

The last of my California adventure with my dear friend Maddy. We were blessed with the beautiful scenery of yellow flower fields as we drove along the coast.
 Couldn't have thought of a better goodbye as we made our way back to the desert we call home.
Hope everyone is having a lovely summer, mine has been quite busy but nonetheless enjoyable. Much love.

Another long overdue post from my road-trip to California with my good friend Madeleine. We stumbled upon an amazing little boutique called The General Store, which has an adorable little greenhouse in the back. It was so charming and beautiful, I could live there if it weren't 100 degrees inside.
Since San Francisco is known for it's bipolar weather, i decided to wear clothes that i could layer up, yet easily take off if the temperature was to rise. My button up with a cutout back would be perfect to wear by itself on a warm day, but I decided to layer on a sweater it to make it fit for the weather. Lastly, this amazing leather jacket I found at Buffalo Exchange kept me extra warm from the strong San Francisco winds.
