TRAVEL || OLD TOWN SCOTTSDALE

Scottsdale, Arizona has an adorable western-themed Old Town! A few streets all intersect together ¬†with tons of shops, art galleries, restaurants, and street performers. Spending an afternoon walking around, getting some souvenirs, and admiring local talents was so pleasant. Now, I know this is a very touristy thing to do, but sometimes it’s fun being a tourist! We went in late March/early April, so the weather was great (at a dry 75F during the day). Plus, it wasn’t swarmed with crowds. Score!

If you like fudge (or olive oils), you have to stop by Outrageous Olive Oils & Vinegars. It’s basically two different shops in one, but naturally I went straight for the fudge. Their cookies’n’cream flavor was divine!

FASHION || BACK TO THE BASICS

Friends,

I am here to tell you about an awesome clothing company called basic. I recently met the owner, who is so sweet and passionate. All of the designers she carries produce ethically made clothes, and some of the designers are even from Alabama. I love supporting local talent and fellow girl bosses!

“Neutral clothing for colorful personalities” is my favorite way to describe basic’s vibe! Every item of clothing is a perfect staple piece for your wardrobe. I’ll show you a few of my favorites that you can shop online or in store!

I was immediately drawn to this top because of the color. Turns out, the designer grew up down the street from a blue painted house. She loved it so much, she matched the paint color to create this top. What a cool, personal touch to add to a design!

The wide legged trousers have such a classic look. Not to mention, they are high waisted AND have pockets! Please and thank you.

Everyone needs this flowy tank. It goes with everything and is great for layering pieces. You’ll be seeing this tank pop up a lot on my feed!
