Fake That Lauren Look at Boot Barn

Embed from Getty Images

If you say you’ve never wanted to dress like a Ralph Lauren model, I will call you a liar to your face. Something about his aesthetic fits so well in this city with our rugged landscapes, stunning sunsets and abundance of ranches and western feels. I can easily see my beautiful friend Sara wrapping up in a blanket poncho waiting for her equestrian daughter to finish her lesson at the barn. Or my friend Sasha, who can rock a blanket wrap like no one else. So, if you’re looking to recreate this look, an amazing place to start is Boot Barn, which carries a huge selection of blanket ponchos as we speak, as well as, boots, belts, hats, etc. Honestly, this store is kind of a hidden treasure for western gear. If you want the real Ralph Lauren, online is likely the best option.

Fantasy White Out

We just finished an epic White Out for the Arizona-Texas Tech game this weekend–which actually worked out well for us Wildcat fans as we notched up a W! But, it got me fantasizing about other stylish white outfits you could wear for such a theme!

Sunscreen Created in the Desert, Like it Should Be!

IMG_5725

Though Sun Bum, Blue Lizard, Supergoop and other trendy sun protection brands often steal the spotlight, one Arizona sunscreen has been sold all over the world for almost 40 years.

Arizona Sun Products Inc. has produced its signature sunscreens, moisturizers, lip balms, bath products and sport sprays since it was founded in 1982 by Bob and Ellen Wallace–who’ve received numerous awards through the years. The couple even accepted one honor in the White House Rose Garden from President George H.W. Bush.

Though the company is based in Scottsdale, Arizona Sun products can be found locally at AJ’s, as well as, resorts and boutiques around Tucson.

Arizona Sun heralds its use of soothing and fragrant desert ingredients such as aloe vera, wild rose, jojoba and cactus in its formulations and truly, the heavenly smell of its ‘World Famous” moisturizer makes it perhaps one of the line’s most coveted products. Arizona Sun also prides itself on being the perfect “swag” for weddings, parties and events. A definite product to keep in mind for your next event. www.arizonasun.com

 

A Little Southern Comfort

This post is a specific shout-out to my Texas girl, E.King! I hope you are reading this! But also, to all my Southern, sweet-tea loving friends–is this not THE. CUTEST. SHIRT. you have ever seen? I want to buy every single one of these long-sleeve plaid tops with every Southern saying that they make. I found this “Bless Your Heart” version for $40 at a booth during CMA Fest in Nashville, and fan-girled all over the shop owner – one Casey Burcalow of Gemini Gypsy.ย While Burcalow is working on her website, you can follow her “happy boho hippie wear” on Instagram – @geminigypsytx, and DM her an order.ย  I certainly plan to, y’all!

Cash Cow

Since the day Meghan Markle wore cow print heels on an official royal visit, this trend is on! Amal Clooney followed up with a cow print clutch, Kylie Jenner posed in a cow print maillot and now, cow print is an official thing. Iโ€™m finding a lot of items on Etsy, including vintage Just Cavalli heels, a bikini, leggings, workout tops and numerous clutches. And also a little search on Shopstyle shows some very cute blouse and skirt options. The Texas girl in me loves how fun this print is, especially in the midst of planning a cowgirl-themed party next week, Iโ€™ve become a little obsessed. Enjoy your own little online searches for this pastoral print!

Oscar’s Best Looks 2019

I was kinda disappointed with the Oscar dresses last night! The ones the celebs wore to the Vanity Fair party were SO much better! Maybe it was because the entire night just seemed a little, blah. Can Jimmy Kimmel come back, please?

I did like the Lady Gaga-Bradley Cooper duet, although it was a tad scandalous in front of his model girlfriend? Here are my fave looks of the night. By the way, is it not annoying how perfect JLo is? She doesn’t drink, she doesn’t eat sugar, she always has one of the best looks of the night. She must have some vice!
