Making a STATEment and some BIG NEWS!!!

Today's outfit isn't really a full outfit post, more like a super basic go-to look that I personally love. I love the white tee and jeans look as well, you can never go wrong with it. Also I wanted a very plain outfit that was not distracting from the most important part, my little Arizona necklace! 
I am in love with this thing! 
It's a Maya Brenner design, mine is silver but it comes in gold as well. It's so dainty and classic. I have been on the look out for one of these for quite some time and this one is just perfect! It's funny how timing works out, because it couldn't have been a better time to get this Arizona necklace!
Scroll to the bottom for the news! 
Oh, and you know those adorable initial necklaces that have the letters that sit on the side of your neck, kinda slanted? Well she designs those too, in gold and silver of course!
If you want to check out more of her beautiful designs, go here
Her designs are sold at stores like Anthropologie and Fred Segal and she has a long list of celebs that adore her products too!

I know it's not THAT big of news, and probably not the news that some people were thinking, however.. I hope we do have that news soon! ;)

So yeah we are moving to UTAH! I am so excited you guys! I absolutely love it every time I visit there! As you might already know, B is from there so most of his family is there and all his friends etc. And let me say this, his family is obviously incredible as well as his friends and their wives, girl friends etc so this will be a great move for us. 

We have had this in the back of our minds for a while now, our timeline was to move around April/May as that is when our AZ lease is up! Things really have fallen into place which makes me feel so good about our decision! Bryce started looking for jobs a couple months ago and flew to Utah a couple times for interviews and there we have it, he accepted a job there! I am so exited for this new adventure and chapter in our lives! Oh and as for me and my job, I am so lucky... my boss has approved me working remotely from Utah. Whew!!! Such a relief!

I feel like I already know a lot about Utah and obviously B is from there but for any of you that live there that have things to share, I would love to hear! Favorite things to do, must try restaurants, festivals, activities... I would love to hear! 

I'll write more in depth post about the move but for now I thought this was the perfect time to announce it, it ties in nicely with my Arizona necklace. I'm from AZ and will always have a thing for this beautiful sunshine state! So now when I leave, Arizona and all the people here will always be close to my heart!

  24. You guys can't move! I have been buggin' Bryce that we need to get together! Haha. Congrats tho! I grew up in Utah and moved to AZ two years ago. Utah is so gorgeous and greener and I love a lot of the people there, but it is cold and dreary for too much of the year, but I'm sure you're up for the change! Hopefully one day Ill still get to meet you whether here or there. Or when you move back to AZ! ;)

  31. I currently live in Provo, Utah and I love it! There's so much do to, especially during the summer. In addition to all the stuff in SLC (City Creek Mall, Farmer's Market, Energy Solutions Arena, Gateway Mall) each town has their own summer festival - most include carnivals, parades, shops etc. And there is always stuff to do in the canyons; hiking, walking, biking, camping. You'll love it!
