    Gal Meets Glam

    I’m just over here channeling my inner Julia – I mean Juliette, on this balcony, waiting for my Romeo! Sometimes a girl just needs a pretty dress, for a pretty day or a pretty occassion. As soon as I slipped on this piece from Gal Meets Glam, the new dress collection by Julia Engel, I felt transformed. Every single one of her pieces is feminine, classic, and timeless – carrying a nod to the days past. There is something effortless in each dress, from the flowy fabrics to the charming silhouettes and details.     I picked the Jane Dress from her spring line. One of the reasons I chose…

    Strap into Spring with Teva Sandals

    My love for Teva Sandals perhaps is nostalgic, as it was created in Arizona during the year I was born. In 1984, a guide on a raft at the Grand Canyon, rigged two velcro watchbands to a pair of flip flops, to make a shoe that wouldn’t float away (genius!). I remember wearing them as a little girl, and more than 30 years later, this iconic sandal is still an endless style and adventure staple. I love staying loyal to a brand that continues to respresent freedom, timelessness, and self-expression. For Spring, I’m strapped into the Terra-Float2 Knit Universal sandal. As much as I love to bring them on my travels, I…

    Resort Wear Dresses for Spring

    Over the weekend we spent time at one of my favorite resorts in the valley, The Royal Palms. Will and I were hired to model for their website. They hooked us up with a beautiful casita and fabulous food and drink. The Royal Palms Hotel feels like stepping into another world. It is lush with tropical palms, flowers and plants. It was originally a private home in the 1920’s and then by the second World War, it was converted into an Inn. Today it holds 119 rooms, which creates a very intimate and private experience for all the guests. I could spend all my time leisurely strolling the property, sipping…

    Keeping it Wild in Reformation

    The desert is alive right now! This is always hands down, my favorite time of year, because everything is blooming and so colorful. We spent a morning at Desert Botanical Gardens in the butterfly exhibit. We bought a year long pass last year, and honestly, it was such a great investment. DGB is seriously one of my favorite places to stroll, photograph and experience the lush beauty of the desert. I found this dress on Reformation, and I absolutely LOVE how this whole look pulled together. This “Alessa Dress” in the Janeiro print is so playful, and has just the the right amount of safari style vibes. I love the cut-out…
