The perfect Swell skirt for an AZ Summer Winter

In good ol AZ we like to jump back and forth from 60 to 90 every few days.
Ya know....just for super fun times.....
Luckily, I finally got myself a maxi skirt aka a woman's best friend.
This one from Swell is comfy, pretty and transitions perfectly from


to Winter!

If you are late to the party like I am and need one of these long & lovely beauties
OR if you already have one but need another because, um, they're magic

Real Talk // Girl Talk

 Real Talk:

Anyone else out there have a lot of guilt induced anxiety?
Don't get me wrong, I have plenty of stress induced anxiety too,
but lately the guilt factor has been totally knocking me down.

Here's how it usually plays out:
It usually starts with a little anxiety (usually social or stress) that keeps me from going somewhere or doing something on time which makes me feel extremely guilty. I feel foolish for for letting something so small affect me so much. So then I feel the guilt induced anxiety. If I go, I will be late, which I hate, if I don't go, I'll let people down, and/or myself down. So then I usually get a lot of stomach pain which hinders me from going and doing which increases the guilt yada yada yada.

Doesn't it sound delicious?

My parents rarely had to punish me growing up because I put myself through such extreme guilt.
My mother has always been good at helping to ease that guilt, but I really want to figure out some ways to break down the anxiety on my own.

If you are going through this or have gone though this I appreciate suggestions!
If you haven't, please don't suggest...just like...not feeling this way.
Believe me, if I could just not feel anxiety, I would. It's not a choice. I was born this way.

NOW then!

Girl Talk:

I was totally jazzed about Seth Aaron's
finale runway looks on PRAllStars.

I love a good suicide roll & the glasses made me so happy.
Plus the clothes were well tailored, simple but extremely chic and flattering.
I even loved the shoes! Everything! Head to toe!
Surprising because I wasn't into much else he did this season.

Shout out to Korto, too.
I thought a lot of her looks were beautiful
and I loved her styling.

Did you watch? Who did you love?

NYE Photo Shoot!

I got some of the beautiful photos back from Dream Photography Studio
for the shoot I did for Emma Magazine!

Stacey Woodward is the beauty & brains behind Dream Photography Studio
& she dreamed up this wondrous shoot with the Emma team!
Anything involving Emma founders Sarah & Shelly is bound to be magical
so I was thrilled when they asked me to be a part of the shoot!
I feel so lucky to have been able to work with Stacey, Sarah and Shelly
and cannot overemphasize what innovative, lovely people they are!

Aren't these dresses from Cleo and Clementine utterly gorgeous?!
Monique's talent is phenomenal and her designs are inspired!
Her whole team was top notch!
They dressed me up in a whole array of glittery, fluttery goodness!
It was seriously one of the best days of my life.

I couldn't decide which outfit I adored more! 
Good thing they had a keen eye for just the right look.

Definitely one of THE best parts of the whole day
was hanging out with these beautiful women!

nicest, most talented people you'll ever meet!
