where the cactus flowers grow

If you haven’t been to Phoenix slash Scottsdale you should definitely go. It was GORGEOUS! Arizona is basically a wonderful hybrid of California and Nevada. So fun like Vegas, but pretty and laid back like Venice Beach. I loved seeing all the different kinds of cactus (cacti?!) and exploring the suburbs. I think we probably had the most fun when we were walking and wandering around and stumbled upon the most chill delicious cafe. And, of course, I made Connor take pictures of me because I was obsessed with my dress. Made by Wylder London, paired with Jimmy Choo’s and accessories by Forever 21, Kendra Scott, and Hemline Rice Village. Enjoy the scenery, because it was legit.
