Hello from Phoenix! Even though the heat is crazy here, I still love the desert. I have always felt very connected to and energized by it. I like the stillness and observing the plants and animals that are so different from what I am used to in New York.
I’m so happy to have a new outfit post to share with you today. This outfit seemed like a natural fit for the desert landscape. Something about the embroidered flowers on the shirt reminds me of the cactus flowers I have been seeing. The denim and the boots give it a slight cowgirl look, which I am not mad about. I got this shirt in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico a few years ago. It has surprised me how functional it has been. It was one of those items of clothing that just feels like home, or the clothing equivalent of home. The Goodwill here in Mesa, Arizona has been very good to me 🙂 I found this skirt there. It was weirdly long until I cut it down to midi length, and I plan to let the hem fray naturally. The boots were another Goodwill find. I think they will be just as good for New York winters as they are for desert walks. I made a few other fun finds which I will be sharing with you soon. For all these pieces, I have offered ethical alternatives from around the web. How about you? Do you have any favorite clothing items you have bought on your travels?
