Equine Prep

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.

Those Funky Flatforms

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!

Last night I attended a lecture on The History of Fashion (Pre-Industrial Revolution) at the Phoenix Art Museum.  I opted for some funky high waisted shorts for comfortable wear in the hot Tempe heat. Plus, they were way too much fun to dress up.

Well, I’m home in America! And while it may be 100 degrees outside, my London attitude still dominates my closet.  Although most Arizonans opt for minimal clothing in the summer, I’ve found retrp midi-skirts to be my best friend.  I welcomed the extra length as an alternative to the micro-micro skirts usually seen around the city.  Plus they protect my legs from hot leather car seats and the scorching rays outside.

I think I’m starting to get a hold on this summer dressing thing 😉

Dinner parties are always my favorite occasions to dress for because they’re my chance to try out a new look or test some new shoes I’m too afraid to commit a full day to. In this case, it was a chance to premiere a tanktop without a jacket (crazy I know). But after a long winter of coats and layers, this was a BIG deal for me. Needless to say I was reminded how much I love spring weather. Lucky for me, this is the first dinner occasions of many as my friends and I end our semester abroad and prepare our final hurrahs. I suppose they’re really just more opportunities to play dressup in the city.
