I never thought I would fall into the Pom trend, but let's be real, who am I kidding? Lately I've been obsessing over everyone's sandals and heels with the Pom accents, probably to avoid all the adorable straw clutches I've seen....but really they're just so summery I couldn't deny them.
I found these Big Buddha sandals on sale for $3 at Walmart! I was perusing through the shoe section to realize, hello, Walmart actually had some cute summer sandals, and most were on sale! I linked this exact pair and a few others (and more expensive) below!
When you and your bff realize you have the same dress in different colors, you know it's really just that perfect!
It's nearly impossible to get away with any form of sleeves during the AZ summers. But ladies, we have found a winner! The dress is so lightweight, features an open back and even has pockets. The subtle bell sleeves are a fun addition to give it a little more movement. Just take us back to the 70's, we wouldn't mind one bit.
This floral tunic is perfect for layering over skinny jeans, or over a lace edged layering tank like we did. We love our long legs, but oh man... dresses can be a challenge. These lace extenders have become our #1 closet essential. With adjustable straps, it can add some length to just about anything, or pull the straps shorter to give a deep neckline a bit more modesty.

Summertime brings out all the nautical themes. Ash was a navy kid... and oh dear, so many stripes in that closet. How do you wear your stripes? Simple and classic? Or do you dare to mix and match? A stripe pairs surprisingly well with florals. Play around with it! You may surprise your fabulous self! Remember, you really are fabulous.
We just celebrated Independence Day, one of my favorite holidays.
It is so great to see families and friends all celebrating and enjoying life.
Casual and comfy is one of my favorite styles. I wear my Vans with everything. Those white shorts have the cutest subtle spikes on the left back pocket, so cute. & Hello! Did you see those sunnies?! Straight America right there.

You just can't beat a great jumper. All one piece, it doesn't get easier. Done right, you have an effortless and chic look. Here you'll see a couple of our favorite ways to style them. Further below you'll find more that are currently available for purchase!
A simple wrap neckline allows you to express yourself in any way you desire. Perhaps add some lace for date night with your special someone. Keep it appropriate and simple for a classy look you can rock anywhere. These clean black jumpers really make your look utterly versatile. From nights out with the girls, to church on Sundays, these jumpers will take you anywhere. Dress them up or dress them down. You are sure to make a statement.
Black and white never goes out of style!
Open toed is a must for these Arizona summers. One of our favorite looks for the season is a little strappy with just enough of a heel. We both have long legs, thank you good genes. Its hard to wear heels that pair appropriately with shorter pieces. Thankfully, the shorter chunker heel is back with a vengeance!
Neutral colors will guarantee to match any outfit! Find the one that works best for you!
Some of these pairs have been in our closests for quite some time.
You can shop the some of the same and similar styles below!
I don't know about you, but when I think of summer, I think of fruit! It's that time of year where you just want something cool and refreshing. Especially here in the desert! Over time we have collected these adorable fruit themed purses that are just too cute! They may be small but they're the perfect accessory for any outfit. Plus of course I added the daisy, it just screams summer to me as well!
I am a sucker for a great floral dress, almost as much as I'm a sucker for a dress with pockets. Both need to be done right. Large all-over prints can be overdone on the wrong type of piece. Poorly placed pockets can leave you looking bulky. Nobody wants any of that.
Thankfully, there are design and style experts that are just that... experts! They know just the right prints and pattern placements that leave us swooning. Next thing you know, you've added yet another fabulous piece to your wardrobe. Oops. But it wasn't our fault they make it all utterly irresistible! At least that's what I keep telling myself(& my husband, hehehe)!
The older I get, the more I realize that most dresses are too short or too tight, oh man did I just age in that sentence! Obviously I've shifted to shop at different stores, but there are still some super cute items in my closet that I just can't let go of! Instead of tossing them (or donating like I probably should....) I keep them around so I can mix them up. This dress is adorable, but my main issue is that it is so sheer! Here's how I switched it up!
