Casual Days


monsoon season

We’re in monsoon season here in Phoenix, which means we get the occasional storm bringing some much welcomed rain, thunder, and lightening to break up the blazing sunny days. It also means haboobs- nothing like a wall of dirt enveloping your entire city- not as cool as the thunderstorms. I highly recommend a Google image search of “Phoenix haboob” to see what I mean.

With the rain comes luscious grass, a rarity in our back yard, and the need for some jumping around in a super casual outfit. And I’m pretty sure that’s the first jumping photo I was ever able to capture with my self-timer, so that’s a win.


TShirt: Burger and Friends
shorts: thrifted (Old Navy)
sunnies: F21
shoes: Minnetonka
scarf: thrifted



My summer has also consisted of eating entire watermelons by myself and a lot of floating around the pool on my pretzel float. There’s a good reason to hate Phoenix summers, but honestly I don’t. I really try to enjoy the perks of each time of year, and being in a freezing cold office all day really helps me appreciate the warm rays.

    This is such a cute shoot! Haboobs seem terrifying, but also super fascinating…mostly because I don’t have to deal with them. ;)

    The heat down here in Austin has also been unbearable, so I try to go to the pool whenever possible! Watermelon helps too ;)

    I love this outfit! It’s so summery and casual and I m jealous of anyone that can pull of shorts. Monsoon season is in Ohio too! It’s been raining non-stop like everyday for a month now. It’s pretty cool.
