Rompin' Around: Romper + Jacket + Heels

Saturday, October 3, 2015

Hello there!  I.  Am.  So.  Psyched.  As of today, I am officially on vacation for the next 9 days!!!  Matt and I just celebrated our 8 year anniversary on Thursday (HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, MATTY!), so we planned a little getaway!  We are taking the pups and heading on a road trip through Northern Arizona, Utah, and Colorado.  I really can't wait for this rest and relaxation.  We plan to do some camping, rustic cabin-staying, and also visit with my high school best friend.  It's going to be magnificent -- plus, we will get to see all of the leaves changing for fall!!  [Insert "Heart Eyes" and various colored leaves emojis.]

I am so excited to get out of town for a bit.  It's been a steady 100 degrees (yes, still...) up until today.  (I'm hoping that by the time we get back, the temps will be staying down a bit more... #fingerscrossed!)

Also, be sure to follow along on Instagram (@alliegee319), because I'm sure I won't be able to stop myself from over-gramming the postcard-worthy scenery ;D

Read Fall About It: Denim Jacket + Dress + Heels

Sunday, September 20, 2015

Hello!  How is your Sunday Funday going so far?  [Side-note: Is that phrase super annoying - "Sunday Funday?"]  Today, I spent the afternoon with my mom, who is moving back to Ohio next month.  That makes me extremely sad, of course, but I will say this: I am very jealous that she gets to go back there in time for autumn.  Here in Phoenix?  It was 104 degrees today.  Yes.  You read that right - 104 degrees on September 20th.  It is borderline unbearable at this point... especially because I just want to be a basic bitch, who gets to cuddle up in blankets, with a PSL in my hand, and wear boots and scarves everyday.  Therefore, since I am missing out on that coziness for the next few weeks months, I am breaking out dresses like this one from Shabby Apple.  It's light colored, which allows me to wear it in this heat, but it's also a heavier fabric -- that way I can pretend it's not currently in the triple digits.  Honestly though, I'm just trying to hold on to the memory of Phoenix's sweet, sweet 75 degree winter season... but until then, I'll be sweating it out and yearning for knits.

I really love this dress.  I can wear it so many ways throughout the upcoming seasons.  And, let's be honest, isn't that exactly what we want out of our articles of clothing?

Print-cess: Dress + Heels

Saturday, September 5, 2015

Hi there!  Can I just say how grateful I am for this three day weekend?  I am real deal pooped from this past week; therefore, I was more than ready for lots of rest and relaxation for three days straight.  The plan is plenty of time with Matt & the pets, Parks and Rec binges, and sleeping in late.  Ah, yes... That is exactly what three day weekends were made for... amirite?

It's so crazy to think that at this time exactly one year ago, Matt and I were vacationing in Europe.  We were in Santorini at this point, which was my favorite place of all.  I wish we were back there right now!  How are you spending the long weekend?  Traveling anywhere or staying put at home?  Either way, I hope it's peaceful -- because you deserve it!

Down the Line: Striped Tee + Shorts + Wedges

Sunday, August 23, 2015

Hello there!  Did anyone else notice it's already the 23rd of August?  Seriously, when did it get to be late August?  Life is just flyin' by, I swear!  But that just means we're having the time of our lives, right?  (Since ya know, "Time flies when you're having fun" and all that)  And speaking of fun, last weekend Matt and I took a road trip up to Las Vegas with some of our friends.  It was the perfect 36 hour vacation.  It also allowed us to get out of the 117 degree heat (!) of Phoenix... and instead enjoy 109 degrees in Nevada. Hey - when it's this hot, I'll take even a few degrees cooler!

Bear with Me: Baseball Tee + Cutoffs + Sandals

Saturday, August 8, 2015

Did anyone else notice that we are already nearing the end of summertime?  When did that happen?  Most people are probably dreading it, but us Phoenicians count down the days until "winter."  Winter is when our weather finally gets amazing again and reminds those of us who live in Phoenix just why we moved here in the first place.  I'll be awaiting your arrival with open arms, 70 degree weather!

Where are you from?  Are you already experiencing those glorious pre-fall days or is it still soooo hot where you are?  It's still 100+ degrees every single day, here in the desert, and it'll stay that way for at least another solid month or two...... But after that?  Perfection for the next six months.
