Red Rocks!

yeah for jumping shots!

aw, barf.

after seeing vampire weekend at Red Rocks last friday, john and i decided to go back and check out the hiking at Red Rocks. it was so beautiful, lots of desert plants, wild flowers and the huge red rocks of course! we did the 1.5 mi hike but there is also a 6 mile hike. we will definitely be going back to explore some more!

South West!

the fabric for the front of this tunic shirt is from Alexander Henry (one of my faves!) called arrow and Kona cottons for the yoke and back. i used new look 6775 pattern. it was super easy and only took a couple of hours. everyone thought i was nutty when they saw the print, i loved it from the get go and loved how this tunic turned out! *i am also wearing jean leggings from the Gap, loves!
