Shades of Turquoise

I wore this outfit for a girls day in Santa Fe with my bestie this weekend. 
When you live in New Mexico, turquoise is a's practically everywhere you look.  I decided to mix different shades of turquoise all into one outfit between my necklace, rings and earrings.  I have always LOVED turquoise on red which is why I chose this red striped top to pair it with.

Sparkle Chambray

This post is titled "Sparkle Chambray" due to my white tank under the chambray being covered in sequins...unfortunately, this detail does not show up on (my) camera. 
I felt this was a fun, casual outfit with a little flair with the sequin tank!

If you follow my Instagram feed (kruttles) then you know I have been all over the place lately.

I've always been a National Park junky...I LOVE the outdoors!  Hiking, camping, backpacking, are some of my favorite things to do.

We recently took a trip out West, hitting up Grand Canyon, Yosemite, San Francisco, the coastal road up to Redwood Forest. It was a blast!  Even though I do not have any great outfits to share with you from my trip due to the fact that we were doing some heavy hiking and camping on and off, I would like to share a few pictures from our adventure! Enjoy!

Grand Canyon

This was on an off-trail hike our ranger friend took us on...

Tons of little pieces of sea glass all over the beach!  

 Gold Bluff Beach Campground, Redwoods
I highly recommend this campground to anyone visiting Northern California.  Very secluded and right on the beach.

I have been all about loose knit sweaters recently with our unseasonably cool summer weather here in New Mexico.  I found an adorable sleeveless knit top at Simons HERE and this longer sleeve option I am wearing at Old Navy HERE. Check them out! :)

 This adorable bear print top is the product of a collaboration with WalkTrendy!  It is soo cute, I love the little bears and the fit is great as well.  I was sold once I saw the tiny black bears on this top.

I'm Lovin' It!

With the seasons changing I had to post a new list of my favorite trends for Summer!

First up on my list is this pair of high waisted shorts from American Eagle (HERE!).
I bought these shorts a while back and I can not wait to wear them!  After falling in love with high waisted jeans I knew I had to give the shorts a try.

Second on my list is this short sleeve crochet top.  I recently came across a fun website called Addition Elle that specializes in plus-size clothing.  I found their pieces to be very trendy and flattering. Here is my favorite! I love the crochet detail on this top! Find this top HERE! 

Third on my list are chambray tops (non button down). 
I found this top at Gap and I fell for it instantly!  I have always been a fan of chambray tops, but this chambray tank takes the cake!  The detail on the back! Find it...(HERE)!

My last pick today is a floppy straw hat from Old Navy.  Nothing better than a cute floppy hat to top of an outfit! Find it HERE!

I hope you enjoy my favorite summer trends! 
What do you have your eye on?
