Ode to Arizona

I'm a native Phoenician. It's somewhat rare to be born and raised in Arizona. Most people come out to AZ from the east coast, they say it's for the warmer weather. I wanted to show some appreciation for my great state, turquoise and all. Although I complain about the heat, and boy is it hot right now, at the end of the day - I love it.  I love being warm, I love waking up to sunshine and feeling it on my back, and I love the dry heat. I have a feeling that my future will lead me to colder weather, so here's to you Arizona, and the beautiful desert that you are.  

Necklace: F21
Dress (worn as shirt): American Apparel
Skirt: H&M
Shoes: Steve Madden
Watch: Michael Kors


  1. I have never been to Arizona but am dying to go!! I live just a state away so our weather is similar... Just not that hot. Haha! Love your outfit!! Especially that skirt.

  2. i would trade the heat for the freezing cold any day!

  9. I love that outfit... like the contrast between colors.
    I just did my first 'style' post today. Not sure if you can even call it a 'style' post as much as just what I wore type thing...ha! Felt a little strange...any tips for feeling more 'natural' while posing for what seems to be nothing. (Husband w/ camera standing awkwardly in the driveway where neighbors can see...ha)
