Birthday Celebration at the Royal Palms

54

Macy’s Jacket, BCBG Blouse, Old Navy Jeans, Zara Flats, Old Navy Clutch

For my birthday In January, we went to the Royal Palms Resort & Spa which is one of my favorite resorts in Arizona. We ate at the Mix-Up Bar which was absolutely delicious. We ordered lots of apps and drinks that it made turning older pretty fun! And for my outfit, I kept it simple with skinny jeans and flats but threw on my tweed jacket for a pop!

I’m sorry for the radio silence everyone! With work and so much else going on, I wanted to take some time off and focus on other things. But I’m back (for now- lol)! These pictures are from our trip to Sedona that we took over New Years weekend. They were taken in one of my favorite spots in Sedona at the Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village. The beautiful area is wonderful to walk through – there are so many cute picture spots as well as great shops to browse in and out of. Definitely recommend stopping by if you are ever in the area!

Merry Christmas Eve! I just love the holidays and the fall seater that comes in AZ. I mean, seriously! How beautiful is this background? I wore this outfit last weekend when seeing The Nutcracker at the Phoenix Symphony which was the perfect way to get into the Christmas mood! I went with a pair of classic black pants over tights and a dress, a classic coat, and sparkly heels (which never fail to spark a comment from a fellow fashion lover!).

Madeleines

001

Madeleines have always been one of those desserts that I have wanted to make for some time. It was just a matter of buying  the pan you need to make these little French cakes. And even though I’ve only made these a few times this year, t’s totally worth it just to have on hand and be able to make those anytime! Using this recipe, the madeleine are the perfect sweet and spongy treat that is a great accompaniment to a nice cup of tea.

LC Lauren Conrad Sweater, Old Navy Shirt, Zara Jeans, Hunter Rain Boots, Coach Bag, Bubble Umbrella

Ever since I bought my new Hunter Rain Boots, I have been eager for it to rain. Living in AZ, it can be very rare when we do get rain, so I looked at my boots as an investment and especially when travelling. That’s why I decided on getting the packable style of the boots that can fold easily to pack away in my suitcase. But for now while I’m home, I look forward to wearing them every rain day!
