April Blogger of the Month

We are so excited to announce our Blogger of the Month for April. Sydney Ballesteros of Golden Girl of the West is a stylist and blogger with a sense of style deeply connected to her sense of place. We fell in love with her elegant outfits, and the way the pictures on her blog tie her style together perfectly with her Tucson surroundings. 




Sydney: These outfits were styled with the homage to Tucson, my desert hometown. I love pulling inspiration from the elements and culture of the southwest and the desert. I like to refer to this style as "desert chic.” It’s about mixing these large statement pieces with minimal ones, much like the way the southwest is rooted in its natural beauty.




The De Grazia gallery is one of my favorite places to connect with the quietness of the desert, gather my thoughts and find my inspiration. It is such a simple, minimal place, yet filled with so much energy to connect with.

The Chase bank is the perfect architectural setting for desert chic. It’s mid-century modern lines and clean, crisp white backdrop are reminiscent of Palm Springs, and the perfect example of how the desert can fit into this style approach. The cut of the simple green dress blend into the background of native plants and the silver jewelry and accessories bring out the best of the modernists era lines.
