Kissy Kissy

Hello loves!

June is in full swing in AZ and it is hot hot hot!!!! In my efforts to take a mini escape from the heat I am sharing an unseen post from much cooler months. :) I feel so lucky to have met such AMAZING Arizona women through blogging. Audree, from Simply Audree Kate is one of those special gals.  We recently got together for the launch of the Glam App (more to come on that this week) and it reminded me of a shoot we did earlier this year that I hadn’t posted. Insert monkey holding hands over eyes emoji here…It’s true, life gets busy and sometimes things are better late than never people.

Double Denim

I have been loving denim on denim lately. Whether it’s mixing light and dark, or playing with color, it looks great on everyone! I put together a similar look last summer here.

Vacation Holiday

As of today I am officially on vacation. Dapper Fellow and I are heading up to northern Arizona for my family reunion then we are off to Newport Beach.  I am so excited to relax and kick back with the ones I love the most.  Almost all of my family lives in the midwest and I rarely get to see them so it really makes me treasure the time I am able to spend with them!

I picked up this vintage blouse when I bought this gorg dress from Goodwill last week! I have a weakness for printed blouses similar to this and this one did not disappoint! You may not be able to tell, but I covered the top, center button with a gold vintage lion pin. I am in the process of trying to transform it into a necklace.  Anyone have any ideas?? Let me know!!!

Black & White

One of my favorite trends for this Spring is Black & White. Not very original, but classic. I notice more and more as I get older that my go-to’s are black, white, cream and grey. There is something about a clean classic look that looks amazing on everyone.  I like to add a little extra pop when pairing these solids and in this case added some polka dot tights and red lipstick.  You can also do this with a scarf, purse or even hair accessory. To add a vintage touch I added the shoe clips which just so happen to have a similar center as the buttons on the blouse.IMG_3553 IMG_3559 IMG_3548 kate spade polka dot tights

Sunset Glam-Mary Black Tribute

Happy Wednesday/day before thanksgiving/last day of work/AND MARY BLACK’S BIRTHDAY!!! My mom is the first person to comment, “like”, share or support whatever I am doing and I can’t thank her enough for that.  Whether it be starting this little blog, moving to a different state, starting a new job, or the simple talks that begin with  “how do I handle this?” She is there and she is supportive of everything that my brother and I are a part of.  There are a LOT of dynamics that come with the 4, now 6 of us.  Especially now that we are older and both adults I am grateful to share such a strong friendship with her.  There are so many things that I admire about you Mary Black, but here’s just a few…

  • I love how much you love us. You do so much for all of us and it is so SELFLESS.
  • I love how welcoming you are to your kids significant others.  Even though neither of us are married yet, you have welcomed Norma & J with open arms & hearts.
  • I love that you’re not defined by your husband.  Who doesn’t LOVE our dad!? We all love him, but you encourage me as a woman because you are so strong alone.  You have your own identity, friends, and interests.
  • I love how you can get soooooo feisty and that it is always about two things: Being a UofA fan and people screwing with your family.  For such a sweet, caring & kind woman you would mess someone up if they hurt any of us.  And if you’re an ASU fan….fah getta bout it! :)
  • I love that we laugh the same, share green eyes, have the same hands from grandma, both forget or mess up words the same way, and how excited you get when Jaimeson and I come over.  <3

I am so happy and blessed that you’re my mama! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

Mama took these pictures.  This outfit was from a baby shower that we went to this weekend for Lauren, one of my dear friends from high school. The sun is so gorgeous. It was shot right at 5pm which just so happens to be my favorite time of day.  I love sunsets more than anything and wish I could be outside everyday to enjoy that 20 minutes from 5-5:20 as the sun is setting.
