Electric Desert at Phoenix Botanical Garden

Electric Desert at Phoenix Botanical Garden

Just when I thought Arizona couldn’t be cooler, I discovered the Electric Desert at Phoenix Botanical Garden. It was an immersive sound and light show experience put on by Klip Collective. I didn’t realize it at the time but this was a limited time installation which makes me super sad that I’ll never see it again. For those who missed out, there is a collection of video and incredible night photography of the whole event on the Klip Collective website. I urge you to go take a look at that for some truly trippy visuals. I never thought cactus could look so much like coral with the right lighting and muzak. Anyway, keep scrolling for my Electric Desert experience.

Desert Electric

It’s pretty crazy to think that a place like the desert could be habitable to anything. The Phoenix Botanical Garden really blew my mind… but so did the Picacho Super Bloom too. Oh the verdant desert! TAKE ME BACK! 🌵

Yellowstone Fall Road Trip Part 2

Yellowstone Fall Road Trip Part 2

Yellowstone Fall Road Trip

Part two has arrived! This is the Yellowstone Fall Road Trip portion but of course, if you happened to miss the title of the blog. Let’s be real, SEO forces me to repeat myself over and over until I die. You may recall previously, Part One was of Bozeman Montana a cute stop along the way. Oh dear sweet Jellystone; one of my all time favourite national parks. It’s home to 500 geysers and 10,000 thermal features. WOWZERS. Here’s a few of my favourites. If I could go back and do it all over again, I would bring mittens. And if you want towatch part one, do that HERE. As always, I implore you to check out the rest of my YouTube Channel…. and subscribe if you’d like to see more! Or don’t, you know, whatever feels right, man. 

Vests as Shirts

Vests as Shirts

Vests as Shirts

There are very few style tips that I adhere to. However, there are a few that have rung true year after year. Adding a belt to something can completely change the structure of a garment. That’s where vests as shirts come in. Vests are just one belt away from becoming a shirt. Much like a blazer is one belt away from becoming a dress. The trick is to find a vest large enough that you can belt it and still have some wiggle room to create drape & volume. I chose this striped woven vest that gave me big bathmat energy. As the armholes were a little bit larger, the outfit had two sides of sideboob but I was into it.

How to Wear Neon

How to Wear Neon

How to Wear Neon

First of all, the only way thing you need to know about how to wear neon is that you should wear it however you want. Now that we’ve gotten that to the forefront, here is how *I* wear neon and you can too. Take inspiration from this or not. It’s a free world man, and you can *mostly* do what you want. Except leave your house right now. No exceptions to that. I digress, here are some of the ways I like to incorporate neon into my wardrobe without looking like I time travelled from the 1980s. With that said, I am totally into the idea of looking like I’m a time traveller from the 80s so this isn’t a blog post against that. Ugh… okay, let me rephrase. Here’s some subtle ways to dip your toe into neon. Yes, that’s what this is! Keep scrolling my dudes.

ACCESSORIZE

Yesssss sir. This may seem obvious and that’s because it is. Some of the best advice is the most obvious! Accessories are for anyone who doesn’t want to fully commit to the neon look… (or rather ~lifestyle~ depending on who you’re talking to.) Whether that be a neon nail polish, phone case, or an eye-popping bag, incorporating a small piece of neon is the simplest way. Also, picking a monochromatic outfit with a neon accessory is a great way to do it. Or you can be like me and go full electroclash with a loud printed vintage dress paired with neon. Honestly, I do not believe there is a  “wrong way” when it comes to styling. 

POPS OF NEON

Feeling a little “riskier”? Incorporate neon into the bulk of your outfit by finding a dress, shirt, pants, biker shorts, or whatever hero piece you like and just WEAR IT. This 90s dress with pops of neon and the weird print reminded me of the movie Hackers. It’s kind of ugly but that’s precisely what I love about it. It’s the type of dress that stops people and makes them wonder…. “what is she wearing?” And not necessarily in a good way either. I strive to make my outfits conversations, good or bad. Perhaps I am not the person you should be seeking fashion advice from. I’ll leave that up to you to decide. 😜
