_____________________________________________________________________________________

Since I've started this blog WAAAAYYY back in October 2012, I've learned so much not only about myself but I've been rediscovering Phoenix, as well. To find these visually interesting backgrounds, I've had to step outside of the neighborhoods that have been familiar to me to discover something new. Message! What an awesome little journey! I can't wait to see what other little gems I uncover.

So, I have to be honest some outfits come together a little easier than others. I could compare this to writer's block. I guess I'll call it styling block. Sometimes, I'll just sit in my closet. Literally, I'll be sitting indian style on the floor of my closet just staring into the abyss. Then, I'll pick up the one item to start the catalyst. So, this day I started with the boots and the coat. I knew I wanted to wear them and I wanted to wear them together. And the rest is dress on dress history...


Coat: Zara, Pussy Bow Dress: H&M, Aztec Dress: ASOS

Bracelet: Dillard's, Rings: Banana Republic,  Bag: Coach,  Boots: Sam Edelman





Earrings: ASOS
