Blue Lace Special

I always look forward to dressing up because my day to day look is pretty relaxed and casual. I have been loving Winter Blues lately and this dress screamed my name. I love the lace detail. There are so many different components to this dress I decided to style it two ways. (Stay tuned next week for round two)

Today’s look was simple, I wanted the dress to do all the talking.  This dress is perfect for a shower, a wedding, or a dinner date. I also think I will try pairing it with some dressier oxfords as seen here.

Hotel Valley Ho Staycation

Last week it was my b-day and we stayed in town at The Hotel Valley Ho. Only 8 miles from our house, but it felt like we were somewhere else.  If you haven’t noticed yet, from my Instagram I love a good staycation. We have some of the best resorts in the country so why not take advantage of them in your own city!

We decided to dine at their restaurant called, Zuzu for dinner.  The modern, comfortable restaurant had a great variety of menu items. We had the Caesar Salad, Burrata, Cornish Hen, and Beef Stroganoff. I couldn’t decide which item I enjoyed the most. Every dish was incredible. The Burrata had every ingredient I am currently obsessed with, Heirloom Tomatoes, Arugula, w/grilled Levain Bread topped with Basil Pesto plus Balsamic drizzle.

burrata,

Zuzu serves brunch inside and on the shaded patio with a Bloody Mary + Mimosa Bar open 9am-3pm.  Cannot wait to try them next time for brunch. How cute is this patio?

After a satisfying dinner and an even better night’s sleep I headed to the VH Spa for Vitality + Health.  I arrived early because this was my first spa experience and I wanted to soak it all in.  I was greeted by friendly staff members and shown where I could relax in the women’s lounge. The smell, the music and the lighting was everything I had pictured a spa experience would be. I opted for the HydroPeptide Facial. This facial increases brightness, tones and delivers a supreme level of hydration. I felt like a new woman afterwards.

Venice, CA

I recently took girls trip to LA LA land. It was perfect break from the heat to relax and enjoy some sunny beach weather. While visiting I was able to spend the day in an area I hadn’t been before. It’s hard to believe I have been to LA dozens of times and never spent time in the amazing, eclectic, lively beach city they call Venice. amys vintage closet arizona amy black arizona fashion misguided dress misguided slit dress misguided babe misguided babes arizona fashion bloggers free people hat free people girl how to style a hat zara sandals amys vintage closet arizona amy black arizona fashion misguided dress misguided slit dress misguided babe misguided babes arizona fashion bloggers free people hat free people girl how to style a hat zara sandals amys vintage closet arizona amy black arizona fashion misguided dress misguided slit dress misguided babe misguided babes arizona fashion bloggers free people hat free people girl how to style a hat zara sandals

Polkas

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.

Holding Onto Spring

This past weekend we hit 100 degrees in Arizona.  I thought we had officially made it to pool season.  The weather took a turn early this week and thankfully we were graced with a week full of mid 70’s! I was so excited that there was time to still wear some of my Spring blazers.  The last time I posted a look wearing this thrifted floral blazer was my one month Blogiversary.  How excited was I to be blogging? Lol too funny to look back on.

Vintage Blue Frock

I love nothing more than finding a true one of a kind thrifted dress or item that just fits like a glove. I found this dress last month when I was shopping for options for Lucky Fabb.  Although I didn’t end up bringing it with me to LA I felt that it was the perfect weekend dress for my shoot with Maria on Saturday.  I always like adding a modern touch to a vintage look and these Just Fab heels were the perfect addition.  This belt actually goes to an old H&M dress that I got in college and I really like the contrast of blues and prints.

Coachella Inspiration-Volume 2

Hey guys! Happy Tuesday! Time for my 2nd Coachella outfit inspiration post in my Coachella Inspiration series.

Today’s look is something I know all of you can easily duplicate.  Starting with a printed tank, add some cut offs, ankle booties, fun sunnies and voila…an effortless Coachella outfit!   I added the Shawl Dawl (last seen here). If you have any sort of similar shawl or kimono this would work as well, or simply leave it out.

Cyber Monday

cyber monday deals

Good Morning! I hope you’re all feeling refreshed and rested after Thanksgiving weekend.  Nothing makes me happier than relaxing with family, eating good food and watching football.  Blogging has sadly taken the backseat with my chaotic work schedule, but I am so happy to be back at it this week. :) I am not a huge Black Friday fan…I would actually rather swallow a piece of glass.  However, I am a BIG fan of Cyber Monday.  I put together a list of some of my favorite sales for you. Unlike most fashion bloggers, you won’t find any big businesses on my lists. I love finding unique stores or sites that offer quality, yet affordable products. If you haven’t heard of some of these sites they’re worth delving into. :)

Danielle Stevens-Their ENTIRE SITE is 70% off. Use code: cyberdeal

Modify Watches: 30% off sitewide. Use Code:  EVERY10FABB. (Modify will also be giving every 10th order for FREE. Those are some good odds!)

Yosi Samra: So many styles are up to 50% off. You will LOVE these flats! I ordered these bad boys. :)

The Shine Project: Buy 3 get 1 FREE while supplies last. No code needed.

Happy Shopping!
