The Mr and I recently traveled up to Monument Valley. We met with our officiant, and also stayed in a traditional Navajo Hogan. Ever since I started traveling throughout this region, I’ve always been inspired by the vast landscape, and the culture of the Navajo people.

Cloudy skies and cooler temperatures put somewhat of a damper on the trip, however, it wasn’t hard to take in the beauty of the mesas, buttes and Mittens. I LIVE for styling “themed” outfits that go along with events, or in this case, the environment to which I’m in. This trip- lots of color, and turquoise were clearly appropriate. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.

(Chanel Dress, Zara Heels, Vintage Karl Lagerfeld Handbag, Toucan Collections Derby Hat (sold), Chanel Sunglasses are available at My Sister’s Closet – North Scottsdale/Pinnacle Peak location.)

So this shoot was originally done for work, as part of their social media. But due to the photos turning out so spectacular, I had to share them on the blog. I also felt pretty darn amazing in this (not vintage- gasp!) Chanel dress, large derby hat by Toucan Collections, Zara heels, and vintage Karl Lagerfeld handbag.

If you are interested in any of the featured products, give the My Sister’s Closet– North Scottsdale/Pinnacle Peak location at: (480)419-6242, to see if they are still available (though I do know the hat has since sold).

There’s a keyhole door that I drive by quite a lot these days. This door reminds me of an entranceway to an ancient souk or temple in Marrakesh or Casablanca (minus the opulence). My creative brain started turning its’ gears, and I immediately thought of something with crazy prints and COLOR.  Once I had the outfit together, I had found some really good, chunky jewelry to pair with it as well. I found that gold accents were also key to perfecting this outfit.

In the comments, I’d love to hear what usually inspires your daily wardrobe!
