:: South Meets West ::

Two years ago, I spent a summer in the southwest. Phoenix to be exact. And yes – I said summer. Between learning how to be a teacher (that was a process that definitely took more than the six weeks I spent there), the 120 degree heat (very real), and walking through a haboob – it was definitely memorable. The drive down Route 66 is fascinating, particularly the trading posts and travel stops. I have always been drawn to turquoise, but something in the unique southwestern prints piques my interest. ┬áIs it how it is woven? Somewhat abstract? The tradition in the culture? The number of arrows to appease my Pi Phi loving soul? No idea. But when I spotted this beautiful jacket, especially with the arrow, I had to take it home. No doubt, you will be seeing it a lot!

Do you see the arrow on the back? Clearly, I had to have it after discovering that.
