Southwest vibes

Just before I turned 18 I went to visit my aunt and uncle in Arizona, where I hiked in the White Mountains, saw the Grand Canyon and walked in the desert. Since then I've loved the southwestern clothing vibe, especially as its become so recently popular. This isn't an outright copy of the style, but I added elements; a denim shirt, and an owl (My aunt and uncle had owls that would hang out in their hot tub all the time). Also a necklace I picked up in a souvenir shop at the Grand Canyon.
Uniqlo blouse, Paul & Joe Sister tee via Gilt Groupe, H&M skirt, Kork Ease sandals, crystal bullet necklace from a friend, beaded necklace from Arizona

  3. I've been meaning to ask for a while now, are those Kork Ease sandals as comfortable as the UO reviews make them out to be?

  6. I really like that style as well. In Mexico there's a lot of similar beaded jewellery and I stocked up on a few but it never seems to go with my stuff. Grrr. Anyway, I love how you've done Southwestern ballerina here. That is a new look! ; )

    P.S. That riot picture you have on your tumblr? My super-classy hometown! Mwhaha.

  10. I am in love with your t-shirt, it's perfect! I love owls, I have a painting of owls hanging in my room rescued from a thrift shop, they're such beautiful creatures.

    Like this outfit, it has a southwestern/romantic feel to it.
