Desert Style

Front view of a summer jumpsuit

This jumpsuit is a recent purchase and I am so glad I picked it up. I fell for the light blue and white railroad stripes when I first saw it. I also love that the pants have a wider leg…


Charred Carrots (+ Eating Plants)

Blackened carrots with a harissa yogurt sauce

After years of flirting with all-plant diets, Allie and I are finally going to take the plunge and not eat meat for at least a month. For me, meat is more of a spice than a centerpiece. I use meat to flavor pasta, to bring dark salty goodness to stir-fries, to fill tacos with something that will fill me. No longer!


That 70s Chic

Who would have thought flares would make such a comeback. I remember begging my mom for a pair in middle school and can’t believe they have made their way back. Last summer I was hesitant to purchase a pair, but I decided to search around this spring.


Desert Light

We took these pictures while walking, hiking, and exploring the Sonoran Desert in North Scottsdale. March is spring in the Arizona desert. Trees are green and flowers are blooming, making great hikes even greater. Allie and I love to explore places (our first sparks rained while exploring one), and there’s no better time to see this stretch of the Sonoran than early spring.


Party in the Back

Hello from beautiful Scottsdale! Chris and I are enjoying a week away to soak up some sun! I have been taking advantage of the clear blue skies and being able to wear some of my favorite dresses.


How to Make Sangria (in the Desert)

Putting fruit into a pitcher to make sangria

After a day in the Arizona sun Allie and I got back to our 5-star hotel (her parents’ house), hit the patio before dinner, and made some sangria. From the patio we could see cacti by the dozen. We could see wavy rock mountains a few miles away. Inspired by our surroundings, we went for a desert-style sangria.


Something Blue

Happy Sunday! Chris and I are enjoying the week in Scottsdale, Arizona. I love that I was able to wear this off the shoulder top, a trend I am really embracing this spring.
