WESTERN VIBES

Can you guys believe I'm writing to you all from 20,000FT above sea level and rising?! It still shocks me how far technology has come these day.

Currently en route back to la casa from a short but sweet weekend trip to Mexico. And yes, still looking as pale as do in these photos simply because 48 hours isn't nearly enough time to right this wrong...

This is the third and final look from my Arizona trip (yay!), with its photodiary/vlog coming soon. We were trekking from chilly Flagstaff to sunny Phoenix that day so I went for layers that would keep me warm in the morning but I could easily peel off when the heat became unbearable. 

Of course it wouldn't be a trip out west without paying homage to the popular neckerchief/bandana that seems to have taken over street-style this past year. I wanted to flirt with the trend without fully committing so I replaced my cowgirl-esque booties for some converse and threw on my cat-eye sunnies and studded cross body for good measure. This is a look that you can easily take from running errands to bar hopping with your gal pals by switching out the sneakers for some chunky heels (like these) and adding a dab of rouge.

Hope you guys enjoy it and stay tuned for the last vlog of this trilogy! You can watch the fist two here:)

xx,
Chels

  3. Perfect look! Keeping it toned down with the converse is a good choice. I'm about to jump on that bandana bandwagon too! #saynotoneckwrinkles!
