cacti and croquet…


southwest arizona skirt

By now you’re probably picking up on the theme of my summer style- tank top + skirt or dress, hair up, and a head scarf. With the Phoenix heat I reach for easy, light-weight clothes and never have my hair down. I rely more on thrifted scarves in the summer, I think to make my ponytail not feel as boring to me. Also, it helps add some color since layering and tights are out of the question.

I rely on novelty prints to keep the summer interesting!

skirt thrifted, handmade and I’m pretty sure it’s vintage…

    Hey beautiful lady! I am back. I hope you’ve had a wonderful two weeks. It is so weird to be back at my desk instead of tromping through Europe! I am so happy to be home though. And, of course, I can’t NOT comment on this outfit — the cactus skirt is perfection my love. xo

  9. you certainly found a great simple summer look! I love how the scarf brightens things up & adds to a messy bun, I really should do that more often since my hair’s up almost all the time too. Absolutely love that skirt & the crocheting is a fun touch too. So exciting for Brian!!
