Concrete Catwalk // Sunshine

May 2, 2011
eeps! not the greatest photo quality you’ve ever seen, right?
we were having some serious technical difficulties with el camera
and our only other option was to use the little point and shoot on hand.
i promise the pics for the rest of the week are much sharper, kay?
i wore this outfit for wine on the patio with friends
and then sushi dinner with my immediate family at stingray.
the bright orange sweater was an homage to both the fabulous az sunsets
and also a tip of the hat to my beloved phoenix suns.
(you didn’t know i was an NBA fan, did you!?)
i loved the way the bright color contrasted with the modern zebra mini
and the stamped leather clogs pull in a little bit of the western feel that scottsdale was known for
back before ridiculous amounts of plastic surgery, high-end shopping & golf courses.
(you didn’t know i was a cowgirl at heart, did you!?)
since we’re apparently sharing about ourselves today,
tell me one of your favorite things about where you grew up,
and stay tuned for the next arizona outfit (and the caftan tutorial) tomorrow!

oh, how could i forget…  one last thing!
the winner of the my mom, the style icon giveaway is
congratulations and i’ll be emailing you shortly with the details.
a big thanks to chronicle books for making it all possible!

    I grew up right here in southern california and there is so much to love. but I guess the thing I love the most would be our charming little uptown area in the town I lived in. very small town feel in a big city :) Love the AZ look!

    While I’m definitely still learning the ropes of photography, I actually like the light in these photos! Love the bright sweater, and I like you (and the sweater) more now that you revealed that you’re a basketball fan. Me tooooooo! I’ve been a Celtics fan for life and I often rock green on game days. So, as long as you’re not a Lakers fan, we can still be friends. Plus, I really like Steve Nash!

    I’m a big fan of orange and grey. I love this zebra mini. Surprised by all the green in AZ. A favorite thing about my hometown…the smell of BBQ in the air.

    I have this skirt and never would have thought to pair it with orange, but it totally works! Thanks for the inspiration.
