Desert rocks, woven frocks

By dusanabotswana On December 9th, 2011

I really love this silly pink hat of mine that I bought in a women’s cooperative in Oaxaca (I completely copied my friend, who’d bought a salmon-colored one the day before). However, I always struggle to find something that matches since it’s so pink (I guess I don’t really wear much pink). The other day though, I felt determined to wear it, and paired it my Mitla top, folded in this jumper to wear as a skirt, threw on some leggings for the cold, thrifted booties, and my thrifted sailor jacket to add a vintage touch to the ensemble.




Jonny has become a much better photographer than he used to be, huge props to him; for this and for putting up with taking pictures of me all this time!


South Mountain is one of my favorite hiking areas in the Phoenix area, mostly because it’s the closest hiking area, and therefore the one I’ve been to most, but I also love the trail variety- ranging from short to advanced, all-day hikes. Needless to say, I didn’t wear this for our actual hike, but I thought it’d be fun to photograph in my native desert some of the outfits I’ve been wearing lately (and having a hard time photographing myself- see the rest here, here, & here).

(Sure I could have hiked in this, these shoes are super comfy, but it would’ve just slowed me down worrying I might mess something up I love, I don’t even wear “good” clothes around the house for this reason!).



Outfit details: hat- handmade, women’s cooperative in Oaxaca; jacket- thrifted ($4); skirt- jumper folded in- thrifted ($1); leggings- thrifted ($1); booties- thrifted, gift from dad; top- hand woven in Oaxaca.

Are there any good hiking trails near where you live? I’ve come to realize we’re extremely fortunate in Phoenix to have trails so near our homes (depending on where you live of course). Also I guess it might be funny to some of you in colder areas that we’re going hiking right now, but fall/winter (minus this freezing week!) is our great hiking (non-100+ degree) weather!

final thx

    Rocks are an awesome background. Pink hat–cute touch. Adds color to the blues. Nice poses. I can definitely see the improvement in the photography–thx to your sweetheart.

    You always look cute in that hat; I think it’s a really cool color too and a nice contrast w/ those rocks. My hometown has an amazing mountain for hiking that I used to always hike with my brother. Cool top too.
