Last weekend my husband, our youngest son Kane, and I took a little drive through the desert on our way to watch my oldest son play football in Yuma, AZ. On our way we decided to take a slight detour and ended up at Salvation Mountain! I’ve seen pictures of this place on Pinterest and other social media throughout recent years so I was excited to actually see it in person!

My first reaction was wow! The creativity and bright colors were beautiful and amazing. And as I walked around and really took in the art, I realized, this took some serious time and dedication. I myself, am not religious, far more spiritual than anything and while Leonard Knight’s artistic abilities are fascinating, to me, they’re also bizarre. I can’t really wrap my mind around this situation so I just decided not to. It’s really not for me to judge and I do believe everyone should express who they are in almost any way they can. Mr. Knight’s way is not only a visual beauty but clearly made with love and who doesn’t love, love? If you’re ever in the area,  this stunning work of art is a must and a photographers dream come true. ❤

I’m enjoying every last moment of these high temps by mixing summer cami’s with fall bottoms and accessories! The all black look and a pop of color has been a long time favorite of mine and if temps were cooler I’d throw a black leather jacket on to complete this outfit. I also love this look for date nights as it’s both flirty and sexy, perfect for Friday night drinks downtown! ❤

Ok, I know it’s fall but it’s 80 degrees outside and I have tons of tops I still want to wear and share! So to make this look not too summery I paired it with jeans and close toed loafers. What can I say, this is me transitioning to fall fashion ❤

I wanted to join in a little on all the fun of fall fashion even though it’s still very warm here in San Diego. I’ve noticed the mornings are a little more crisp than usual and the evenings are chilly but for the most part it’s a steady, high 70’s and sunny! Which makes wearing a sleeveless sweater perfect for this kind of weather!

Blush and mules were two staples in my last years wardrobe and that’s definitely not changed for this year. Comfort is a big deal to me especially when it comes to shoes and you can’t get any more comfortable than slipping on a pair of mules when you’re on the go. I also love wearing them while shopping for easy take off / put on when you’re in the dressing room! To shop the look above, click on the links below. Happy Sunday! ❤

‘One morning she woke up feeling different. Done with trying to figure out who was with her, who was against her, or walking down the middle because they didn’t have the guts to pick a side. She was done with anything that didn’t bring her peace. She realized that opinions were a dime a dozen, validation was for parking, and loyalty wasn’t a word, but a lifestyle. It was this day that her life changed. And not because of a man, or a job, but because she realized life is way too short to leave the key to your happiness in someone else’s pocket.’  -unknown

I’m not sure who wrote that, but I love it. It without a doubt, describes me to the core of my soul. ❤

Fall Fashion.

Screen Shot 2017-09-20 at 5.37.02 PM.png

Fall is right around the corner and I can’t wait to pull out all my cozy sweaters! I wanted to share this look for the main reason of combining high-end accessories with affordable and versatile pieces. I love a good turtleneck sweater and you can almost never go wrong with boyfriend jeans! Pairing these two pieces with Gucci mules and an elaborate bag really dresses up an otherwise casual look! I’m linking the actual pieces from above but I’m also linking affordable dupes for the sweater, shoes, and bag. What do you think, are you as excited about fall as I am? ❤
