    Motel Motel

    Dress + Bag: Vintage from Founder’s Grove | Sunglasses: Anthropologie | Spencer Boater Hat: Lack of Colour Tim McGraw says the highway don’t care. And maybe it don’t. But I’ve got to tell you, some of my favorite moments are on highways. There’s something in the possibility of the destination. You never know what you might stumble upon. Like a billboard in Tuba City, Arizona that takes you to dinosaur tracks. (Yes, that’s a thing! I’ll post about it.) Or this abandoned motel, overgrown with weeds, that perfectly matches the dress you threw into the trunk of your car. Like, maybe I’ll wear this, maybe I won’t?! Whatever, it’s cute.…

    Hiking into The Wave Pt. II

    I didn’t want to rush the moment. I wanted to feel it–to notice it. To notice myself in it. To simply be, and to let the moment wash over me. Like the ebbing away of a tide that washes over the shore.  Because I knew the moment was never meant to last. That it would be gone before I even knew it. A faded memory that I would have to relive in bits and pieces on unknown days. I didn’t want to forget what it felt like to truly be there. How it breathed life into me, and gave me the gift of feeling so alive. Or how the edges…

    Hiking Into The Wave Pt. I

    One thing to put on your bucket list is hiking into The Wave. It’s an experience that is quite an adventure. From the lottery alone, to the journey to get there. If you really put yourself in the moment, you will leave The Wave changed and awakened. To see one of the most beautiful places in the world, you must apply for a permit here. Currently, they only allow 20 people on per day to preserve the integrity and beauty of the land. You have about a 14.6% success rate of winning the lottery, as over 10 people are chosen via an online lottery, and 10 via walk-in a day…

    Kindness Matters

    Today I woke up smiling. Yesterday was GLOBAL Pay it Forward Day (@pifdayusa) and, truly one of the best days of my life! I wanted to give a shout out to Darleen Santore (@thecoachdar), the US Ambassador for this cause who has worked tirelessly to create a ripple effect of kindness here in the US. Also to Jessica Reinhart of Lumitory (@lumitory) who did so much behind the scenes work to get this momentum going, Vicki Zangl and to every other person who took a stand for kindness yesterday. Next year is going to be even MORE epic!!! After yesterday, I feel moved in ways to act more. And I’ve been…

    Corral West Adventures

    All Photos by Constance Higley I had the opportunity to explore the Sonoran Desert by four legs at Corral West Adventures. This was such an incredibly special morning. We were led by Cait and Jed, and their very special horses through the mountains, and it was an absolutely beautiful trail ride. All of the horses at their ranch are slaughter rescues. Caitlin is such an angel as she goes in and saves these poor babies during their last minutes of life. She finds them completely uncared for, completely emaciated, and gives them a second chance at her Ranch. It’s such an honorable cause and love that she has for these animals, and I…

    Time Exploration

    The Perfect Pair of Jeans + Boots: Madewell | Top: Vida Moulin | Bag, Vintage Belt: Founders Grove | Bandana: Anthropologie They say that as you grow older, you begin to experience time differently. It’s a literal sensation. In our childhood, time develops slowly because everything is new and unfamiliar. Our brains are constantly processing everything around us, and that’s a lot of hard work. But as we grow older and our lives become more familiar, more routine, time feels as though it is accelerating. It’s like you barely blinked and the Christmas decorations are up in Hobby Lobby again. Even though the hours in a day, and the days in a week,…

    What Matters Foundation Fashion Show

    All Images by Kaylee Chelsea Photography The What Matters Foundation charity fashion show was such a beautiful event to be a part of! It was put together by Claire Planeta and hosted at The Ice House. I loved coming out for a cause to support women who are trying to get a fresh start in life, trying to break the cycle of abuse. I think it’s important to shine a light on topics that matter and to draw attention to ways in which our community can get together to help others. It was so fun meeting all the girl bosses here in the valley who participated in the show. I always love…

    Aint Life Grand

    Madewell Leather Jacket | FreePeople Hat | Scarf Vida Moulin c/o | MinkPink Sweater | Madewell Jeans | LuckyBrand Boots There’s something magically healing about the Grand Canyon. It’s a spiritual place that I can’t quite explain. Go there for a weekend. Stay at the El Tovar Hotel right on the South Rim. It’s an old, historic hotel built in the early 1900s and it has that rustic feel that makes you nostalgic for the past. Luminaries such as Theodore Roosevelt and Albert Einstein used to stay there. Then wake up in the morning, step outside, and stand in awe of the grandness that awaits you. The canyon in the morning light is…
