Outfit Post: Forest Fairy

Once again Kylee Patterson blows me away. We had so much fun on this shoot. It is just known that when we shoot together we get down and dirty. In other words, we become one with nature. For this look I am wearing my all time favorite Lemons and Lace headband which by the way, I am featured on her website {here}...what an honor!!! Seriously made my day. Here are the photos, enjoy!

Outfit Post: Denim Dreams

My all time favorite high-waisted pants are the BDG jeans from Urban Outfitters. Perfect fit and they have a ton of different colors and styles. Today I wanted to dress them up a bit with my new sandals from Charlotte Russe. Guys...I went shoe crazy last weekend. I bought 8 pairs of shoes at Charlotte Russe for only $140. I got so many cute ones for work! I love unique looking heels so you will be seeing some new shoes in the near future on STS. Here is what I wore today.

I hope everyone is having a great week so far!

Outfit Post: Color In The Wind

A couple weeks ago I did a photoshoot with the ever-so-talented Jennifer Griffith. Let me just tell you, she is so sweet and so amazing. I seriously love every single photo. Here is part 1 of the shoot we did.

If you have been following my blog for a while now you know that I absolutely love to feature and promote small business. I feel like the small business community is so welcoming and everyone is a team. Everyone knows how hard it is to make small businesses work so why not collab and work as one?! 

I have been working with Happy Chance Apparel for quite sometime now and she is just a doll and such a hard worker. She is a mom of 3 and a step mom of 2 and is completely inspirational. Starting her clothing line {Happy Chance} she had her daughters in mind and knew they would be the source of inspiration for it. 

"Happy Chance is all about life's moments...those summer night moments, and bonfire moments, and Friday night football moments, and first kiss moments, and slumber party moments. I believe that life is made up of all these unforgettable happenings that are completely and totally meant to be...some are amazing and wonderful, and some are difficult and heartbreaking. These moments are what I like to call happy chances. These moments are what I can't wait for my daughters to experience. I hope they soak it all in and have the fondest memories of being young and carefree. Happy Chance Apparel is designed with the notion that we can and should live life to it's fullest. We capture life's moments in our clothing. Be Happy!"

I hope you guys enjoyed getting to know Maryann from Happy Chance Apparel. To find out more visit her blog {here} and shop her adorable pieces {here}. Thanks for tuning in today!

Outfit Post: Rest and Relaxation

This weekend was so much fun. It started with the most amazing cheat meal in the world...Waffle Love AZ. I'm not kidding guys, if you are in AZ you need this. A waffle with cookie butter, strawberries and thick whipped cream. Heaven on a plate. Follow them on Instagram at @waffluvaz to find out where their adorable food truck will be. Saturday night Jeff and I went to my first event for work The Phoenix Ad Awards {The Addys}. And today was spent sleeping in, getting lunch with my aunt and uncle and relaxing! Such a fun weekend. Here is what I am wearing.

Outfit Post: Office Hippie

A couple weeks ago when I shot with Jennifer Griffith {photos from our shoot coming soon!} and we were talking about these printed bells. Well apparently we are both obsessed and when she asked me what type of top I would pair with them...I immediately pictured something neutral, flowy and bohemian. When I found this one at Target I knew it was perfect!

If you guys have been following STS long you know about my headband obsession. Fabric Wraps are currently some of my new favs. I absolutely love the color of this turban not only because it looks great on my {white}hair but it totally acts as a dark neutral. Love that! I can picture myself wearing this throughout all seasons! So watch out :)

Outfit Post: Morning Light

I snapped these photos before work this working. I just love pairing sweaters with mini dresses. It gives both pieces new life and a fun unique twist. I also have been loving this sea spray I have been using in my hair the past couple days. Getting ready in the morning is a breeze plus not using any heat on my hair is always a thumbs up in my book. I am going to be doing a hair post VERY soon but in the mean time check below to see if you won our Hair Affair Scottsdale contest... :)

And cue the wind...haha

Outfit Post: Meet Alfred

When I got this tee from Broke Rich Girls I about fainted. How cute is little Alfred?! By now you should know that I am obsessed with Frenchies. They are just adorable! I wanted to dress this tee up a bit with this fun skirt and statement necklace. With my new Kate Spade bag + wallet {Valentines present from Jeff} and phone case they are the perfect accessories to dress up Alfred and add a pop of color.

I can't tell you how obsessed I am with my Valentines goodies. Jeff certainly knows how to spoil me. Also I can't get enough of red + pink paired together this season so when I found this phone case at the Apple Store {and it matched my bag}...I had to have it. No more naked iPhone! I hope all of you are having a fabulous day! :)

Outfit Post: Wish I Was An Olsen Twin

Today was bittersweet. It was my last day working as an intern for Bashas'. We went to my favorite place {Pita Jungle} for my farewell lunch and they completely spoiled me! So happy I got to work with all the awesome people at Bashas' I'm going to miss them. If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen yesterday that I announced my new position at Arizona Foothills Magazine. If you have an Instagram make sure to follow us @azfoothillsmag + @bestofourvalley for some fun photos and inspiration. Anyways, I start on Monday and couldn't be more excited to join the team. Just a little update on my life :)

Here are some AMAZING photos that I took last week with the talented Kylee Patterson. Seriously she is the bomb. This is the first half of the shoot and I will share the rest next week. I absolutely fell in love with the tank from Hips and Hair. I mean...who didn't want to be an Olsen twin at some point in their life? "You got it dude!!!"
