But seriously, how rad is this new sweatshirt?
Since leaving the bay this summer, I’ve adapted a more effortless style in my day-to-day wear. With that, I’ve been focusing on detailing through accessories. It’s made resorting to my usual leggings look, feel less drab and a liiiiitle more trendy. So being back in the land of normcore and simple style, I felt adding some gold accents to my comfy clothes were the perfect ensemble.

As a former equestrian, I’ve always loved adding a bit of prep to my style. Growing up, I was the “horse girl” who spent more days with her horse than with boys. I even was known to wear dorky oversized-pony shirts from time to time. Though I don’t ride anymore, come fall you can still find me sporting leggings, my old riding boots and an oversized sweater. Though I’ve (mostly) outgrown the “horse-girl” style, I couldn’t resist this new sweatshirt. I may not ride anymore but I can surely own the equestrian trend like a pro.

Sometimes all it takes is a new pair of shoes to inspire me. Yesterday as I was waiting for my phone to get fixed, I wandered into Urban Outfitters (swearing I wouldn’t buy anything of course). But when you stumble upon a $15.00 pair of flatforms exclusively available in your size, you know it’s fate. Thus fueling the fire of my new fall obsession; chunky things.
After a busy summer out in San Francisco, I’m back in Phoenix, ready to dive back into blogland. Within my first week home, my friend Simply Audree Kate and I set off to Phoenix Fashion Week Shop Garment District Fashion Show. I opted for a colorful statement midi for the event. Hopefully this midi trend doesn’t go away anytime soon because I’m hooked!
After arriving in the Bay last week, I was pleasantly surprised to learn I’d be around for Pride. I had no idea what to expect but the festivities far exceeded any expectations. Never have I witnessed an event captivate a community like Pride. Local business, large corporations, organizations and even celebrities (Oh hey OITNB!) put together extravagant displays to show their support in the parade. Families of all ages lined the streets to watch the beautiful displays of love pass by. I mean, how cool is that? Can you imagine growing up in the middle of such a powerful human right’s movement? I left so inspired by my new community and their contagious passion for change.
Large family, 1 boat, 7 days. Recipe for disaster? We may have had our doubts in the beginning, but the trip proved to be one of the best family vacations yet. Each day, was a new water to sail with a new isle to explore. With over 60 islands in reach there was never a shortage of things to do.
We geocached for treasure, snorkeled reefs and did some of the most beautiful scuba divining I’ve ever seen. A major highlight was diving the Rhone, a world famous shipwreck that went down in 1867. At night we switched off between cooking on the boat and dining on the islands. Each restaurant we’d take turns ordering a “pain killer”, the trademark BVI drink. Turns out, the best ones came from our very own captain!
Airport bound. Like most people, I’m always searching for that balance between comfortable lounge-wear and jet-setter chic. As I depart on to my next adventure in San Francisco I turned to my harem pants. Though everyone seems to have an opinion about the baggy pant style (even I had my fair share of eye-rolling), the harem style has grown on me. Besides being ridiculously comfortable, these bad boys are the ticket to pull off an effortless look.
