TRAVEL || TAKE A HIKE.. IN SEDONA

Sedona is a great place to visit in Arizona, because..
A) It’s a cute town to explore
B) The location is prime

We stayed in Sedona for three nights and visited a different city each day. Our first day was exploring Sedona itself. The whole town is surrounded by incredible views of mountains and red rock. The street signs are even painted a dusty red, which really adds to the natural beauty. We stayed at the Sedona Rouge. The rooms were very nice and the staff was so accommodating. They even surprised us with chocolate covered strawberries and a sweet note on our anniversary!

Scott and I are not big hikers, (which is unfortunate for us because Sedona has amazing hiking trails) so we asked the concierge what he recommended for smaller hikes. He suggested Sugarloaf. Sugarloaf is a short trail with an incredible 360 view at the top! It is one of those secret spots not covered with tourists, but is growing in popularity thanks to its view. There are no parking/hiking fees and you get to drive through a residential neighborhood on the way. I loved that! It was cool getting to see how locals live as the architecture is completely different in Alabama.

This hike is still an hour round trip, so bring a water and wear comfy shoes! Pictures speak for themselves, but even photos can’t do it justice. This trail was my favorite on our Sedona adventures! PS: You can bring your dog!

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!
