Above It All | Hollister


Remember how in one of my recent posts I said I couldn't get enough of the mountains near my house these days? Well here I am cruising up and over the San Gabriel mountains, through the clouds, creating imagery brought to you by Hollister! What I love about this drive is that it's never the same - the sky always looks different, creating a totally new atmosphere every time. All I knew at this point is that once we got to the top, we'd either be in the clouds creating with a spooky vibe, or we'd rise above them.


It turns out we rose above them! Once we made it to the top, the clouds covered Los Angeles and all you could see were those cotton candy textures and a heavenly sunset. I felt like I was floating!


The clouds were so mesmerizing, and made for the best backdrop to showcase one of my favorite looks and some last minute holiday gift ideas from Hollister! This entire look I'm wearing is under $80 (except for the shoes) - so if you're looking for something that's adorable and affordable, you know where to shop! I mean, who doesn't love a cozy matching beanie + scarf combo (costing a total of $23)? Now, I hope you enjoy some more of the magic we created while *above it all*!


This backpack would also make the perfect gift and it's only $20! I've been bringing it on all of our adventures lately.


I absolutely loved teaming up with Hollister on this post and I linked up everything I wore (+ a few more goodies) below! Happy Thursday, everyone!

Fire Princess | Valley of Fire


This was the very first photo we shot on our road trip through the Southwest in Valley of Fire. You know, it's funny to think that before a year ago I had never been to this fiery location, but since then we have been 4 times. It's such a special location that we obviously can't seem to get enough of. So here's the magic we created in order to start off the adventure just right.


When you're wearing a gorgeously crocheted white dress such as that, and surrounded by this surreal landscape, it's hard not to feel like a princess. 


So I added some gold details to add to the summer princess vibe! Including that amazing leaf halo.


The light was perfect.


And the warm, evening air in the desert was just right. I just loved the way the golden light reflected off that ring and cuff from Hollister!


I chose this as my song of the day because it was playing over my speaker as we shot some of this series! Fyfe has been a favorite of mine ever since I discovered them many years ago.


The tunes were just right, and so were the colors, so I put my feet in the air and enjoyed every moment! How dreamy are those sandals, by the way?


As the night continued, the colors in the sky kept becoming more vibrant and the clouds began to look like cotton candy!


It was so magical.


So here's day 1 of 7 from our Sothwest Road Trip - stay tuned for day 2! Check out what I'm wearing and my song of the day below! ::)

I have finally returned from the most magical road trip I have EVER experienced in my life ((and there's been quite a few!)). The views, the adventures, the people along the way, all made for a journey I will never forget! I am so excited to share the imagery we created, and thought I would start off with my adventure through Arches National Park wearing the most perfect summer get up brought to you by Hollister.

This here is the 'North Window' - but doesn't it look a bit like an eye? So I decided to add an iris, of course.

The rock formations and patterns were so beautiful, and made for the best backdrops to showcase this rad lil' summer ensemble!

That whole collection of arm candy above is under $20 and are my new go-to pieces this summer. Hollister has a great selection of other jewelry pieces as well, but since I'm a sucker for cuffs, I decided to stack them up! You can never wear too many bracelets, right?!

Once we saw all of the arches on the Windows Arch Trail ((South Window pictured above)), it was time to head back to the car to catch the sunset at another location. While walking back, we stumbled upon the most stunning light and had to take in those golden views of Arches ((of course!)).

Arches was even more extraordinary than I had imagined - I recommend that all of you add it to your bucket list! I couldn't have matched those hues any better than with that summer silhouette from Hollister. I can't wait to show you more of what we created, but for now, enjoy your weekend y'all!
