Summer To Fall

We have at least another month before our temps drop here in AZ, but I am getting so impatient browsing the newest chunky knits, autumn hues and of course my favorite fall/winter accessory…hats! I snagged this Old Navy hat over labor day weekend.

Gladiator Sandals on Steroids

The tall Gladiator Sandals are not for everyone. I saw these debuting last year around this time at MBFW and knew I needed them! Fashion is all about taking risks, being creative and having fun. I see trends come and go that I never even dabble in and then there are some I can’t seem to break away from. Like mixed prints or polka dots.  What works for me may not work for you and that’s the beauty of fashion, anything goes.

Black & Cobalt

August is a busy month for my family.  My future Sister-In-Law and myself have birthday’s and in between is my parents Anniversary.  I love ANY excuse or reason to be around my party of 6. I love being able to celebrate them and just be together as a family.  My parents invited us to celebrate their 34th wedding Anniversary with them at the Sanctuary Resort in town.  Arizona has some of the most beautiful resorts I have ever been to. It’s crazy to think this breathtaking piece of paradise is only 8 miles from my house.  I wore this little Banana Republic number to dinner at the Elements, which was incredible by the way. A must-eat if you’re ever in the Phoenix area.

Tucson Art Gallery Wall

It should be obvious by now that I love a good artistic wall for blog pics.  (See herehere and here) I have been fascinated by graffiti for years. It is always so bright and vibrate and always one of a kind.  We spotted this wall on our way out of town and it was too good to pass up.  This wall is located on the corner of Grant and Stone in case you were wondering. :)

Denim x2

Double denim use to be something I laughed about. Attending college in Canada it was always referred to as the “Canadian Tuxedo.”  Who knew that years later it would be a staple outfit for me.  I think the key when wearing two of the same material or color is to mix up the shade or texture.  I love adding a pop of color or a busy complimenting print.

Vince is the MAN!

It is no secret that I am a huuuge fan of Vince Camuto. When it comes to high fashion and affordability he is my go-to for shoes and clothes! (See my other Vince Camuto looks here and here.) Also, I haven’t found a shoe by Mr VC that was uncomfortable!

Transitioning to the other Vince I am wearing in this post…the more sophisticated, staple piece Vince. This Vince (no last name) is a pricier brand that I like to occasionally buy for basic or quality investment pieces.  (Seen here and here) I am such a bargain shopper, but as I get older I see the benefit in saving and investing into classic, versatile pieces that I can wear for years.  I picked up these sandals on sale last month and I have already have been living in them!

Summer Nights

The best part about Phoenix in the summer are the nights after a storm.  The temps usually drop about 10-15 degrees and there’s a new found breeze in the air.  I know everyone else in the world keeps talking about this week being the “end of summer” but that’s not the case for us. Come October and I may start wearing pants…Maybe! I love my brights and prints so I am happy that Summer is sticking around for awhile. :)

Flowers and Puppies

If you want to know the way to a girls heart I will tell you…It’s flowers and puppies and brunch! Hitting up brunch and picking up fresh blooms are a weekly occurrence for this girl.  Dapper Fellow and I love brunch, you know why?? Because ANYTHING goes! You want steak? You got it! You want savory or sweet? You got it! Feeling like a good salad or sammy? You got it! Anything goes with brunch and if you’re like me you want one of everything!!!!

As far as flowers I love them all.  I am typically drawn to exotic blooms or wildflower combos.  I cannot wait until the weather gets better and our farmer’s market’s to open up!

Neon in the City

Nothing like a Neon frock in the summer. I have been wearing so many bright hues lately and I love it.  I took these pics while staying downtown with my girl Whitney from Little Leopard Book.  The views are incredible and Little Italy is known for the best restaurants in town.  I can’t to go back in a few months.

Vintage Chic

If you are following along on my Instagram you may have noticed my recent San Diego wkd getaway.  This Dr Pepper wall has been calling my name for an outfit shoot since I first staying at one of my bestie’s house, Whitney (who also writes the BEST cooking blog, Little Leopard Book).  The building use to be an old bottling plant years ago and screams “Amy’s Vintage Closet” does it not.  I love finding amazing walls and backdrops.
