Last weekend was one for the ages. We called it the #nojudgmentzona! Perfect little mix of outdoorsy adventures, city nightlife, and chill moments by the pool at the resort with 3 of my closest lifelong friends, roots tracing back to middle school for some. We stayed at the Four Seasons Scottsdale. From beginning to end it was pretty magical. One of the highlights was dinner on the terrace at Talavera Restaurant overlooking the beautiful elevated view of Scottsdale miles away. We arrived just before sunset, and spent a serene few hours reminiscing about the trip, years past, and enjoying incredible food and drinks. We were soaking up our last moments together before spreading out back to our homes all over the country the next morning.
A few style notes:
-The gold swimsuit is from Altar’d State (and FYI is $20). Bottoms to match!
-Tan dress is via Roe Wolfe, a local Minnesota boutique.
-Rose gold tennies (my spike stand-ins til I find some I like haha) via Ted Baker, a couple seasons ago.
-My little linen pantalones! Also from Altar’d State.
-Black maxi & floral backless top via Beehive Boutique in Manhattan Beach, I was so excited to finally give this look a spin! I also love their insta.
-healthy natural tan via The Glow Lounge
-Sequin dress via Free People
Must do’s & sees:
–Troon North Golf Club: Apparently one of the best in Scottsdale. I practiced my swing at the driving range and they were kind enough to give me a tour of the grounds. Beautiful homes surrounding the course and some incredible views! Would be a fun one to play on another visit.
-Tonto Natural Bridge: A bit of a trek, nothing to be underestimated haha. This was our second hike and not gonna lie I was ready for the chill poolside moments of the trip but I absolutely couldn’t get enough of the views. It was gorgeous. And an entirely different kind of nature than I’m used to.
-Mogollan Rim Overlook: A valley of evergreens that’s like so so vast and breathtaking. And a very mild hike which could maybe have been done in sandals so that’s not the worst 😉
–Whiskey Row: Great bar in Scottsdale. We ended our night out here and had so many good laughs. Also it’s Dierks Bentley’s place! We didn’t see him there- I don’t think, not that we were looking around much haha too much fun with each other dancin like fools and singing to every song. One of those nights that you knew while you were living it it would be one you’d remember forever.
-Acai bowl at Proof for brunch. Ask for honey to go with it. So amazing.
