    Delicately Dressed

    Dress: Vida Moulin | Sandals: Vida Moulin | Hat: Lack of Colour We spent the day exploring downtown Phoenix and snapped these photographs at The Heard Museum. Between the quiet citrus trees and the Spanish architecture, it felt like we were in another world. I recently picked this dress up from one of my favorite, go-to shops in Phoenix, Vida Moulin. It is the perfect dress for spring! I love the soft neutral colors and delicate print detail. The tiered layers add an extra touch of romance to an otherwise understated dress. I love that I can keep it casual for day strolling with a pair of these greek sandals and hat,…

    Art Naturals Aromatherapy

    With “relax” as my word of the year for 2018, I’ve been taking steps to do just that. As part of my “Wellness Wednesday” series, I wanted to share with you my love for aromatherapy. Aromatherapy uses the aromatic oils of plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit. When essential oils are inhaled, aromatic molecules travel to the limbic and olfactory systems of the brain. These control emotions and memory, and directly communicate with the hypothalamus which regulates our autonomic nervous systems. The autonomic nervous system controls all of our unconscious functions, such as breathing, heart rhythm, hormone secretion, and much more. Woah. That…

    The Brexley

    Will + I spent an afternoon at The Brexley with one of my favorite ladies and photographers in the valley, Jennifer Griffith of Griffith Imaging. Working with Jen is so inspiring and fun. I totally trust her vision and ability to be capture the energy of a moment. Jen took us to The Brexley, an Air BNB in Scottsdale, and wow. What an escape. Upon entering, your jaw immediately hits the floor. I was just in complete awe of the vision, that the owner Cindy created. She is a total visionary and absolute sweetheart. The house has an ultra modern vibe. Super hip. Rock and roll. A little desert oasis.…

    The Year of Self Love

    Last year, my life had come full circle. After an emotionally exhausting 2016, the Universe and I were doing trust exercises. Like, if I fall backwards into the great unknown of 2017,  would it stretch it’s arms out and catch me? As I came to learn, the land after the fall was always soft. And the Universe had my back, whether I knew it or not. 2017 was a beautiful year, filled with new relationships, exploration, manifestation, and opportunity. It was a testament of  perseverance, love, hope and joy.  Of course, it came with trials and messy days and so many moments of self-doubt. But I never let it stop…

    Me, Myself + Moi – A Letter to My Younger Self

    Creating a positive identity has nothing to do with the outside world, and everything to do with your inside world. I wish I could go back and tell my younger self what I am about to share with you right now. And it is this: Be YOU bravely. Whatever passion you have, whatever interests, desires you have, seek that and don’t let any outside voices tell you differently. Pursue it fiercely and don’t stop until you achieve it. Sure, you’ll make mistakes along the way, but I’m here to tell you, it’s ok. When you listen to the still voice inside yourself, you will always confidently know that you lived…

    Oh My Gourd!

    I don’t know about you, but fall is my favorite time of year. From the changing of the weather, to the anticipation of the holidays, and the fashion!! Let’s be honest, I’ve never met a turtleneck I didn’t like! And, of course, you can’t mention fall without the ubiquitous pumpkin! From candles to coffee…my blood type is basically pumpkin spice now.  And I’m totally OK with that. Fall this year, just feels like happiness. 2017 has been a great year; a year of healing and rebirth. Maybe I’m feeling a little sentimental, but I’m just full of gratitude as the season and seasons of life change. And with a little faith in yourself,…

    Pajama Day

    There’s nothing like waking up in the morning to fresh coffee and pancakes (in BED)! And then snuggling up to your favorite furry friend. My B + I love slow, lazy days (they’re often rare around here!) where the only to do’s on the list are pillow fights and power naps. Heavier on the latter. Low key, we stayed in our cute + comfy Raven & Crow pajamas all day. Sometimes, the snuggle is that real. Oh! And if you snag yourself a pair of these PJs to lounge in too, you can get 10% off with the code katenelle! How sweet is that?!   SaveSaveSaveSave

    COACH x Selena

    Maybe it’s my sunny disposition, but being a wall flower is so boring! I’m embracing more color these days. And a little more whim. Here are a few of my favorite things I’ve been loving to keep my style fresh: Fringe Earrings. They instantly add life to your face! And any outfit! These red ones are bold and statement making. Just the pop I needed to keep me feeling fresh + fun! A red bag. This Coach x Selena tote is seriously one of my favorite accessories this fall. I honestly feel like I can wear it with almost anything for that unexpected accessory. It is such a classic style…
