My Favorite Season

It’s beginning to feel a little more like Fall each day.  Granted, it will be a high of 88 degrees today. Haha.  But at least our evenings are cooling off a lot. We are nearing my favorite month of the year, November.  There is nothing I love more than Fall fashion, College Football, Thanksgiving and spending time with my family and friends.  November is also the beginning of my big yearly transition, switching my Americano’s from iced to hot, I know…exciting things going on over here!

Bicycle Wall

Finding original and artistic backgrounds in my own city is one of my favorite things to do.  Whenever Maria and I get together to shoot we always have the best time discovering Phoenix’s uncommon treasures like this mural, street sign wall, and colorful wall. I was thrilled to stumble upon this crazy bicycle wall in Tempe while having breakfast with a girlfriend last month.  This wall is one side of a locally owned boutique, Here on the Corner.  This boutique is stocked with items from local designers and is a must see in Tempe!

Regal Republic

I am always thrilled to work with local Arizona brands.  Anyone can screen print a tee, but when there’s meaning and purpose behind it I am even more ALL IN!

Regal Republic is a new clothing line from Mesa, AZ.  The founders are all AZ natives and these guys are killing it in their unique street wear.  Ironically, right around the same time that RR contacted me I was having a conversation with my sister Annie about the word regal and how chic it is.  RR states, “Living in the Regal state of mind means always living in a rich and fulfilling state where you are on top of the world.” How perfect is that?!

I am always looking for great go-to, polished looks that I can plan in my head and just know that the outfit will work out.  I am always on the go and do not have the time I would like to play dress-up and have fun experimenting in my closet.  I grabbed this Old Navy skirt last month when they were having their big Fall sale and it is the perfect addition to my fall wardrobe.  I can’t wait until winter when I can pair it with tights or a chunky knit sweater.
