Opting Outside in Arcopedico
Finding Balance and Color in the Mojave Desert

Opting Outside in Arcopedico

The Arcopedico team recently reached out and asked if I wanted to try a pair of their shoes. I chose the ‘LS‘ from their Classic Knit Collection because I wanted a shoe that could be comfortable for being on my feet all day at work, as well as something to wear if I wanted to go on a spontaneous walk in the desert. I also chose them because they are vegan. After wearing the shoe for a week, I realized that I chose the right style for my needs. According to Arcopedico, the popular style is known as “Shocks” because they’re practical like shoes, yet comfortable like socks. I couldn’t agree with them more. The nylon knit upper is breathable (which is great for those upcoming Arizona summer months), and the metal-free twin-arch support really lessens the load on my back, as it helps to evenly distribute my body weight via the foot’s plantar system. I also don’t have to worry about then I take walks in the dusty desert, as the shoes are machine-washable, and then I just have to air-dry them.

Arcopedico offers an assortment of styles that suit a variety of needs and occasions. Check them out HERE.

Finding Balance and Color in the Mojave Desert

It was freezing and incredibly windy when Taylor and I shot at Ugo Rondinone’s Seven Magic Mountains– a colorful art installation in the middle of the Mojave Desert, near Las Vegas, that features several columns of balanced rocks. I must give the wind credit though, as it did justice for my vintage marshmallow blouse and its’ billowy sleeves. I tied my black and white marbled clay tube necklace by Phoenix-based Sonia Gracia Handmade closer to my neck, so it can show-off next to the incredibly chic wingtip collar of the blouse. Overall, I wanted my black and white outfit to nicely contrast with the art installation, instead of wearing clashy colors. It was a fun day, especially when you have an excuse to go play in the desert.

Love my black ‘Arch’ earrings by Tucson-based Sigfus Designs? Lauren makes them in numerous colorways. Shop them HERE, and be sure to enter the code: HEATHERG at checkout.
