Floral in the City

On Monday Scott came down to my school in Phoenix, and after grabbing a quick lunch at Subway we snapped a few photos of my outfit in the park across the street.

Cardigan: Halogen
Shirt: Target
Skirt: Nordstroms
Booties: Jeffrey Campbell

I really loved the colors of this outfit, and also the fact that I was able to wear the cardigan without sweating to death. That afternoon a storm had rolled into downtown Phoenix, and there was a slight chill in the air.

The park was designed as a place for students to go to on cool days (who would really want to sit in that direct sunlight in 105 degree weather). It has bits of modern architecture in it, as well as a historical building that holds an art gallery. There is also a below ground coffee shop that serves the best vegan brownies I've ever had.

I really feel like this city is truly my home, and I'm thrilled to be able to come here every day. I am so thankful that ASU decided to move the journalism school downtown. We not only got a brand new building, complete with state of the art Mac computers and other great features, but also a chance to live and work in a new, and exciting scenery.

The Jeffrey Campbell shoes are a recent purchase, found at Last Chance for a mere $30, compared to their regular $170 price tag. I was super excited to find them, and can't wait to wear them this fall/winter.

I also want to give a big thanks today to my boyfriend Scott who is always so great about taking pictures for me, and is always thinking of new locations to take them in. He is a huge encouragement in my life, and I'm so thankful for him.

What are you doing today?


  1. that last photo of you is absolutely gorgeous!! i can never get over your hair, it's so pretty! your outfit is great! what i wouldn't give to own a pair of jeffrey campbells...one day...one day. i also find it funny that you are able to wear those shoes for fall/winter, at first i was like "what about the snow??!" then i remembered where you are and realized that it's super freaking hot all the time.

  2. I love the shoes! Scott reminds me a lot of my boyfriend, David! Today I am working on some new dresses. Hopefully this weekend I will open up my Etsy store.

  4. I love your Jeffrey Campbell shoes!....I saw Jeffrey Campbell platforms at Last Chance for only $10! and I have been eying them online for ages so I was so excited when I found them...but they were size 11.5! and I'm a 9..I need to get back to Last Chance like once a week to see if I can find my size.
