Desert Style


Vacation time is the best time to buy new wardrobe! Going from the Ohio Valley in the spring to the desert is going to feel like a warm time-travel. The weather here is 50s & 60s with tons of rain and wind and Arizona is upper 80s and sunny and dry. Not only is it time to bust out the summer wardrobe, but also the water bottles, moisturizer, and sunscreen. Below is my style inspiration & wishlist for a sweet desert style.


Currently loving linen shorts, natural fabrics, leather & strappy sandals, bright colors (as always), and red/orange florals.

Slow as Folk

Last week I had the chance to spend the afternoon with Sarah from Slow as Folk. We had coffee, went shopping, and toured and photographed her cute home studio where she showed me her latest projects. Her tools of the trade for making jewelry are luxe brass wire & funky polymer clay. Check out these fab earrings and grab you a pair before they’re gone!
