My Style: Desert Daze


I
have grown to love the beauty of the desert.  Because of die-hard Coachella fans, I know that Indio and Palm Springs, California, have received much acclaim over the last few years; however, I especially enjoy Tucson and Scottsdale, Arizona, for the amazing fauna, the colorful sunsets, and the quiet, stark hills.  Cue in quiet, calming music and then stop with a screech.  Let's be honest, I do love nature but I also like the luxury resorts, the world class golf courses, the exquisite shopping, the outstanding art museums, the night clubs, etc.  I just had to be real with you, my lovely readers. This particular photo shoot was taken in Tucson where I spent time last month at two great resorts--the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort and the Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa.  For a luncheon with friends, I wore this black lace, maxi skirt that has a beautifully embroidered waistband.  I searched for the perfect top to complement the skirt and found this ideal ivory, textured halter top.  To bring the colors together, I wore an ivory, embroidered, round purse and flat, black sandals.  Highlighting the colors in the waistband, I wore pretty rings in blue and black and nail polish in a light turquoise green.  I'm not usually bold enough to wear a bare-back, halter top but I felt in the heat of the desert and coupled with a delicate lace maxi skirt that the styling was alluring but classy.  I hope you agree :)  Xoxo, Shelly

  21. How gorgeous! The rage about deserts have definitely been burning bright because of Coachella and music festivals. Doing a photoshoot at one is such a great idea! Too bad we don't get any of that here, haha. Anyway, the skirt is incredibly gorgeous and what do you mean not bold enough? You rock the halter top!
