But seriously, how rad is this new sweatshirt?

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.
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.

I was always a whimsical child growing up, preferring tutus and colorful fairy wings to regular clothes. Though I stick to more neutral colors these days, that same playful spirit still makes its way into my closet from time to time. So when the “flower child” trend began showing up, the little girl in me jumped at the chance to wear those same whimsical tutus again. Though I’ve had this tulle skirt for over a year now, it’s still one of my favorite pieces to style from edgy to chic.

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.

I’ve always had a thing for suspenders (especially on guys), but was never sure how to pull them off. Ever since I picked this skirt up from H&M, I haven’t been able to take it off. I love dressing it up with heels, moto books, even just knee high socks and a pair of comverse. Plus I couldn’t pass up the chance to play Dutch in the Keukenhof Tulip Gardens!
