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. ❤

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 ❤

One morning she woke up different. Done with trying to figure out who was with her, 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 opinions were a dime a dozen, validation was for parking, and loyalty wasn’t a word, but a lifestyle. It was on this day her life changed. Not for 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 obsessed with this casually thrown together look! Half – tucked, button down shirts are always chic, especially when they’re denim. I love the worn out look paired with dark jeans and chunky heels and of course a statement bag always completes the outfit! This look is the perfect example of utilizing the basics from your closet and making them work ❤

The top, a v-neck, wrap top I found at Target the other day and a must in everyone’s wardrobe! The skirt, a thrift store find that I bought for nearly nothing. The flippy flops, purchased at Forever 21 for $9. The bag, I found on ebay! I’ve been in love with the Cult Gaia bag for about a year now. I discovered it when it hadn’t really turned into a “thing” yet and every blogger wasn’t carrying one. I hesitated on buying and before I knew it there was a six month waiting list! So as usual, when I can’t find what I’m looking for I turn to my trusty eBay and sure enough I found this amazing, original, 70’s Vintage Bamboo Bag! Just like the Cult Gaia only vintage, and for me, vintage is always better ❤
