Hotter than hell

Hi cutie patooties,

I am back in Reno and am happy to announce that I survived the Arizona heat. Let me tell ya, it wasn’t easy, but I managed to make it through the trip while only making a few complaints that ‘I was melting’ or ‘dying of heat exhaustion’.. never ever am I dramatic. 😉 But for real it was pretty dang hot (like 105ish) and so so dry. I mean we all know Arizona has a dry heat brought to us only by Hades himself, but when your skin suddenly feels “moisturized” when back in Reno, you know Arizona truly is drier than your mouth after eating saltines.

Even in the heat it is not socially acceptable to strip completely and walk around unclothed (even though it would be much colder that way), so I wore some clothes while I was there. Shocking I know, but yes I was indeed wearing garments the whole time. So of course I planned these outfits prior to the trip because for some reason when you throw 6 shirts and 5 bottoms in a suitcase and hope for the best.. it really doesn’t work out. We really tried our best (by we I mean my mom, Hanna and I.. thanks for being my vacay photogs! Your check is in the mail :)) to get pictures of all of my outfits. Buuuuut that didn’t quite happen, so I have a couple to show ya and then the others you will just have to believe me that I wore them and maybe I will get a picture some other time!

Here is my unofficial official Scottsdale style guide!

Of course Justin loves a good blog pic and seems to include himself whenever he sees the opportunity. I wore this comfy combo on the plane headed to Phoenix and a quick breakfast after. I had to remove the sweatshirt for fear of sweating through the pepto bismol pink.

This outfit was night number 1 for the Barrio Queen. They didn’t give me the crown, but I am not sure if that is a good or bad thing?? Mixing patterns is most definitely where its at.

This bad boy was a dinner night outfit and most definitely my best rendition of Tupac. I think I need a little more of a gangster vibe, but I’ll get it someday. Also you need this top more than anything else you’ve ever needed before.


Obviously I wore this number out to a fancy dinner with a strict dress code.. or maybe just the pool one day since being half naked is still only allowed when near the water. This ribbed swimsuit is super cute and flattering. I love it so much <3

I’m like 90% sure this bungee jumpsuit is a clothing malfunction waiting to happen, but I still love it so much. I was really feelin this cotton candy color scheme vibe, even brought me back to my 3rd grade days.. in the best way. ‘Twas the perfect outfit for a full day of shopping!

So that’s about all I’ve got for you for now and tomorrow I am comin at ya with my Scottsdale favorites and next week I will have a full roundup of everything I bought while out on my shopping spree. 🙂

Xo, Ciera
