Exploring Utah: The Salt Flats

Can you even believe it’s the middle of August? I’m ready for the end of the 90-100 degree weather we’ve been enduring! We’ve been on a few fun trips to get out of the desert heat here…so helpful! Our favorite so far? San Francisco! We’re a little bit weird and we love the drive through Tahoe. It makes the boring Nevada part worthwhile! Plus, there’s a Grimaldi’s in Reno and you know how we feel about our pepperoni and mushroom.

We made a pit stop at the Salt Flats to take a few pictures and it was so much fun! We tried to do our best to not look like we were melting…it was so hot! If you’ve never been out there, make sure you go sometime soon. It’s the absolute best for photo ops. The lighting was so fun and made that lip color really stand out. Two thumbs up for orange lips!

Rebecca Minkoff Crossbody (new fave color)

So, we’ve recently become obsessed with Deer Valley and all the fun activities that are available—especially the music festival! But really, can you blame us? The drive is amazing and it’s the perfect setting for a concert. Our fun friends were able to join us over the weekend to listen to the Utah Symphony perform Disney songs! There were so many kids, but it made it even more enjoyable…so many mini Elsas and other princesses singing at the top of their lungs. It was so adorable!

Near the end of the concert, we were completely bundled in our blankets because it got so chilly! Who knew that we’d be shivering when it hit 70 degrees? The summer definitely spoils us. If you get a chance to check out one of the Deer Valley concerts, we recommend it!

We’re exactly one week away from my favorite holiday! I absolutely love the 4th of July and I wait patiently all year long for a fun-filled day with friends and family. I think I love it mostly because of all the memories it recalls, but there’s something wonderful about being so unabashedly patriotic. You can’t help but feeling so grateful all day long and it’s a wonderful reminder of the sacrifices that so many men and women make every day. Basically, it’s the best day ever. Aside from the food and fun, I love planning my outfits for the various activities throughout the day. I usually have a parade outfit, change for a family barbecue, then I have my final outfit for the Stadium of Fire. Food, fun and fashion? That’s a recipe for success if I’ve ever heard one. Here are some of my newest inspirational pieces—I hope you enjoy!



Inspired: Eddie Redmayne & Yves Klein

So we’re all aware of my admiration for the work and style of Eddie Redmayne, but I was recently reminded of why I enjoy reading his interviews as well. Instead of being filled with poorly veiled self-promotion, Eddie’s interviews often detail his sources of inspiration and recent learnings. I recently read this enlightening interview, which was insightful and highlighted Eddie’s well-known eloquence. Near the end, he discusses his Cambridge dissertation, which must have been an overwhelming undertaking (obviously). He mentions the subject of his dissertation, artist Yves Klein, and his creation of International Klein Blue. If you’re familiar with this deep blue hue, you know it’s effect on all those who view it. It’s intensely captivating. While it’s difficult to find products that boast the true hue, I was so pleased to find this dress that is an acceptable mimic! The color is oddly versatile and this is probably the 5th (starkly) different look I’ve styled using it as a base.
