Weekend Exploring With JORD Watches

It’s hasn’t been the worst of  Mondays, considering I’m still basking in my four day weekend relaxation. My best friend/ extremely talented photographer came to visit me in Phoenix. Being that I’ve only been here for a month and have spent the majority of my time working, it was awesome to have some exploring time. We pretty much ate our way through Phoenix, loving Mellow Mushroom and Humble Pie for super yummy pizza and Dutch Bros. for quick and delicious coffee.I love exploring all the nooks and crannies of the city. It’s amazing what kind of awesome locations you can stumble upon while roaming downtown.

This weekend marked the very beginning of the Phoenix monsoon season, making it bearable to rock these mom jeans in the Arizona heat. Wearing a simple striped tee and classic black denim, I accessorized with a timeless wood watch from JORD watches.This dark sandalwood watch is my new go-to when a classic outfit needs a twist. I love that it’s versatile and simple, yet it makes a statement. JORD watches are a truly unique accessory to add to your everyday wardrobe! I’m so excited to be partnering with JORD Wood Watches to give away a $100 e-gift code! Click HERE to enter.

Dazey Lady

It been WAY too long since I’ve done a blog post! Since moving to Phoenix for the summer, I hadn’t really been getting any cute new pieces to share, nor had I really gotten to shoot with anyone. Instagram is such an awesome platform to find local photographers. I was lucky enough to stumble upon @heidielyse who takes incredible photos and knows her way around the city!

Speaking of discovering on Instagram, awhile ago I found the most adorable clothing brand called Dazey LA. The owner of Dazey creates some amazing tees that are adorable AND empowering!

I’d been eyeing this ‘Love more’ tee for the longest time! I had to snag it on an awesome Memorial Day sale! I’m loving the mustard color, and it even has some distressed detail. 

I paired this tee with some super comfy ruffle shorts! They’re actually part of a matching set! Peep my Instagram to see the top!

 

Keeping a little bit of a 70’s vibe, I added these Lucky Brand suede wedges to complete the look. I got them at Nordstrom Rack last summer, so I was only able to find them in limited sizes from various online shops. Nordstrom Rack is always carrying adorable Lucky Brand shoes that are budget friendly!

Also, can we talk about how perfectly these yellow aviators go with my Dazey tee?! A match made in 70’s heaven.

These MOTO High Waisted Ripped Mom Shorts are everything to me this summer. They fit so well, which is always a struggle for my curvy build. Ever since I purchased my first pair of Dr. Martens, these edgy shorts paired with the patent leather boots have hardly been without eachother. My Docs are so comfortable since they’re not broken in, and they go with just about everything! Head to my Instagram to see them paired with a cute floral summer dress!

It’s safe to say that this Dazey tee has stolen my heart. It’s a really amazing brand. The tees are custom made in Los Angeles! It feels so good to buy a cute tee AND support a small business that stands for something. The owner is extremely transparent her Instagram stories and also makes it a point to connect with her supporters! Head on over to Dazey LA and purchase yourself some Dazey lady goodies! There are so many adorable products to choose from.

I will not be taking any more extensive hiatuses, at least not for a very long time! A month and a half was far too long to go without writing a blog post, but I hope this one made up for it! I’m always sharing on Instagram, so make sure you’re getting The Lindsey Look on there.

Have a great week! ☺️

Denim Skirts

Skirts and denim are two of my favorite things, so when these two come together I am all about it. A denim skirt is the perfect spring/ summer staple. Considering my love for this trend, I’m sharing three adorable denim mini skirts today!This light-wash denim skirt is my favorite! It pairs well with so many different things! I wore it with this adorable one-shoulder top, which is on sale for under $23! This top will be perfect for summer days of cooking out and drinking margaritas! Pair this outfit with some converse for a casual look, or highlight the femininity or this look with some white espadrille wedgesI have been adoring this tank with this warm whether. The back detail is so cute! It’s extremely comfortable and goes well with denim skirts and denim shorties!This button front skirt that I’ve linked is under $20! I’ve had this one for years and it carries over every season. During the warmer months, I love to pair it with a staple tank. Wear this outfit to the next festival and make sure to add some cute black booties!If you’re aiming for the ultimate cool girl vibes, you need this black denim skirt in your closet. Complete this look with a choker neck band tee and come classic black bootiesDon’t forget to add on some adorable mirrored sunnies!

Live Jewelry

Last week, I got to wear some amazing jewelry made from actual live plants. Calhoun Flower Farms created some beautiful pieces including rings, necklaces, a bracelet, and a hair piece! Southwest Creative Company captured the most amazing photos at a gorgeous greenhouse. Live jewelry is just the cutest idea! This is going to look amazing for brides! With all the beautiful greenery around me, I wanted to wear some neutrals while maintaining the vintage vibes. This “top” that I’m wearing is actually an adorable little swing dress that I got at Nordstrom last year. They no longer carry it, so I’ve linked a couple of adorable floral swing dresses for your summer here and here. Both are under $20! I paired it with this timeless midi skirt. The one I linked is under $30! This gorgeous off-the-shoulder maxi dress is a MUST this summer! Graduation festivities, weddings, parties, or whatever the summer fun might be, THIS is your dress. Also, I love how it comes up a little in the front so I can show off these cute little lace-up sandals. I’m a sucker for lace-up shoes, and these babies go well with the majority of my summer wardrobe!

This greenhouse shoot was absolutely gorgeous, and one of my favorite shoots to date! It was an amazing collaboration. Make sure to follow not only me @thelindseylook, but also @calhounflowerfarms and @southwestcreativeco on Instagram! I’m so happy I got to be a part of this beautiful magic!

Spirit Winds Cafe

It’s that time of year when I become somewhat of a nomad. School is out, and I’ve got a few weeks before I move out to Scottsdale for the summer. A whirlwind of weddings and celebrations and moving is what my life consists of until Arizona. I’m trying to soak up the excitement as much as I can!Spirit Winds Cafe is probably my favorite place in Las Cruces. It’s locally owned, and has the most delicious coffee. If you go, I highly recommend a spirit latte with almond milk!

Aside from the coffee, it has amazing food! Attached to the cafe is a little shop, full of gifts, jewelry, apparel, bags, mugs, cards, and just a ton of little treasures. I love picking out pretty-smelling incense there. I’ll miss this little gem of a cafe over the next 7 months. I’m beyond excited to discover new cafes in the places that I go, but this place will always be extra special! If you’re in Las Cruces, this is a MUST.Spirit Winds truly has a unique aesthetic. Side note: this top is 60% off! It also comes in multiple colors, but I love this light purple color! I paired it with a classic black maxi skirt

Later this week I’ll share the gorgeous I was a part of with a local florist. Stay tuned! 🤗

Layering with a Tee

As 90’s as it is, I’m really a fan of layering a tee underneath a tank top. I purchased a two piece set that I featured in my blog post, A Match Made in Heaven. I’ve been using both of those pieces to layer different looks, and incorporating older pieces in my closet. A good striped mock neck tee can be so versalite. To achieve this layering trend in a more unique way, I paired to it with this comfy rust swing dress (which is on major sale right now!). These casual cutout booties complete this on-trend look.

The tank I’m wearing here is from American Eagle last year, so here is an adorable blush satin camisole that would be perfect with a similar white tee. Give this look some edge with some destroyed light wash denim. The pair that I’m wearing are linked, and they’re more than 50% off!I’m always really into layering, just to give my outfit something extra. This will be especially useful during my hot summer coming up in Arizona! Now I’ll be able to layer even more lightly. 

Thanks for catching up with me. I’ll be posting some new content early next week!

Summer Uniform

Summer is upon us, especially here in the southwest! I’m already getting tired of this spring wind. Hopefully it lets up soon so we can enjoy gorgeous days outside without being blinded by dirt! Although spring can be an awful time of year around here, it still gives a little taste of summer.I’m always a sucker for a good striped tee, and this one gives me all kinds of retro vibes. It’s super soft and light, making it perfect to throw on for a hot summer day.Everyone needs a good pair of white cutoffs for their summer wardrobe! Levi’s is currently having a sale on these babies!Finish this look with some breathable booties! Mine are currently sold out, but here are some more adorable ones for under $40. I just wanted to share this as some inspiration to a easy summer look! Make sure you’re getting updates, as more content will be coming this week!

Where’s the Beach?

So maybe there’s no beach in sight, but I’m still going to rock an adorable one piece! I told myself that would try to refrain from buying yet another swimsuit that I wouldn’t wear very often, unless I could find the perfect one piece. Behold, that missing piece of swimwear.Some babes and I took a mini trip out to White Sands to take in a gorgeous New Mexico sunset and show just how magical this swimsuit is. Trust me when I say it looks good on all body types! Bonus: it comes a ton of colors! Check out my fellow blogger beauty Val and her amazing blog post on this perfect one piece. As usual, I had to go with black, but there are so many choices! Whether you’re on the super curvy side or the more slim side, or anywhere in between, this one piece is very flattering! Another reason that this was a must for summer was that I pictured pairing it with some shorts as a bodysuit. I will likely do so with this black one, but Aerie came out with an actual bodysuit! I ordered the olive green color and I cannot wait for it to come in this week!The cutout side give this swimsuit some fun side boob. 😝I’m obsessed with the back details it has! The scoop in the back is the cherry on top, and it’s a little cheeky. 🙈That’s a wrap on this must-have swimsuit! Stay tuned while I adventure around the next few weeks before my next move. Follow along on Instagram @thelindseylook for more updates!

Just Romping Around

Happy hump day! I just wanted to pop in and share a timeless spring piece! For some reason, I’ve really been into polka dots lately. It’s such a cute and classic print! When I laid eyes on this piece, I knew I had to have it!How cute is this polka dot romper?! The best part is that it has POCKETS! It also has a super flattering silhouette that I’m just in love with. FYI, I’ve linked some oxfords like mine below that are under $50!This romper buttons down the front and is complete with a little bow tied around the waist. I’m just smitten over the classic navy and white on this adorable thing! Style this piece casual with go-to (Converse) or some oxfords. Dress it up a bit with these simple red sandals, these red wedges, or some red lace-up flats! Don’t forgot to add my favorite red lip!

That’s all I’ve got for my sudden obsession with polka dots, but trust me, there’s more to come! ✨

One Cute Top, Two Cute Outfits

Is anyone else feeling this retrograde like I am? I’ve been in a bit of a lull this past week, and I am breaking out of it now! I have to share a cute off-the-shoulder top that’s perfect for spring time, styled two ways! This is such an ideal go-to outfit for spring and summer. My OTS top is available for just $29 and it comes in four colors! Ninety-nine percent of my outfits involve tucking my top into some high-waisted bottoms. As if I haven’t talked up these Levi’s Wedgie Fit cutoffs enough, they’re really treating me well so far this season. Pair this look with some strappy sandals, or some comfy and adorable peep-toe booties.Add on a cute bandana for something extra!

One of the best trends this season involves two of my favorite things: denim and skirts. Bonus points for black denim!Love love LOVE this high-rise denim mini skirt. It’s definitely my new staple. Wearing it with this OTS top adds a little bit of femininity with the ruffle and the springy color. As usual, pairing outfits with classic high-top Converse

It’s the weekend! So let’s all do ourselves a favor and by something pretty because we deserve it! More looks coming to the blog soon!
