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.

The Feminine Edge

I think there is a part of every woman who loves to feel girly.  I have definitely had my fair share of phases where this is more present than others.  One of my favorite things to do is to combine my love for all things feminine with a bit of edge.  You can do this by adding a bold statement necklace, killer boots, or even by adding an a hat or darker eye make up.  See here here and here :)

Aztec Leather

Just another Manic Monday…I am pooped today, like desperately needing one more weekend day to rest and relax.  Is anyone else freaking out that Christmas is less than 2 weeks away? Lots to do lots to do…I threw this outfit together to embark on some Christmas shopping over the weekend.

Edgy Neons

Good Morning!

This dress is one of the steals I was able to snag up at the H&M $5 Sale. I have been living in this thing ALL  summer. It is so lightweight and the pops of neon match with nearly everything.  I slept in these booties last night. Ok, maybe not, but I wanted to.  I have a feeling this leather jacket/boot combo will be on repeat come fall. :)IMG_5403 IMG_5416 IMG_5407 IMG_5418 IMG_5389 IMG_5414 IMG_5409 IMG_5410

Prabal Gurung Dress

Unless you’ve been living under a rock EVERYBODY knows about the fab Prabal Gurung/Target collaboration.  I picked up this little number a few days after the launch.  This was the first Target collaboration I made an effort to stop into within the first week. I loved almost everything from the line. Prabal’s designs are so unique and bright. The New york-based designer has been consistently wow-ing us since his first collection debuted in 2009. His design philosophy is characterized by a mixture of modern luxury, indelible style and an astute sense of glamour.  Here is how I styled his drop waist dress…prabal gurung for targetPrabal Gurung For Target Drop Waist Dress in First Date PrintPrabal Gurung For Target Drop Waist Dress in First Date Print

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.
