Dry Dry Heat

Lately I've been missing the dry dessert heat and ever-so-spicy Mexican food that Arizona graciously offered me on a visit last year.  The rolling foresty (could be a word, you don't know) scenery in Prescott and the most gorgeous sunsets over mountains that I have ever seen in my life have been consuming my thoughts of late, making me literally ache to go back asap.  That being said, I can't help but be a little excited about some of the Native American influences on fashion this spring.  Here are some items that offer a little dry heat & spice to any girls' wardrobe:

Free People - Watercolor Tube Dress
All I'm gonna say is you NEED this.  The style and cut works for just about everyone, and its a dress you can wear a million times in a million different ways.  Belt it, throw a longer crocheted cover-up over it (hey, you could throw a belt over that too), pair it with ankle boots, below-the knee distressed boots and some sheer leg warmers..you just need this dress.  Plus, it comes in light blue, light pink, or the black!  (Although, I'm partial to the black.)

Lulu's - High Frequency Fringe Tunic/Tank
I want to wear this with some long feather earrings and a ton of wrap bracelets, and go to Coachella.  I mean, this tank is just cool.  You'll look like a BAMF wearing it...and lets be honest, who doesn't want to send off that vibe every once and a while?  Thats what I thought.  

Forever 21 - Rainbow Knit Poncho
I know poncho's are oftentimes associated with fat days (yes, it is a coincidence that Fat Tuesday is tomorrow, and I'm posting this today).  Just trust me, this is one sweet poncho.  It's great to throw on over a tank on a cool summer night rather than your old college hoodie (you're not making any statement with that other than the fact that you've done a few keg stands and pulled some all-nighters).  Moral of this story, those kangaroo pockets on your sweatshirt aren't making you look any thinner, so maybe you should rethink what articles of clothing you give a bad rep.

Ikat printed scarf - Charlotte Russe
I always try to throw in something for you late adapters who aren't as likely to hop on the new trends full-throttle.  Thats ok, when the water is chilly I only put my toes in at first too.  Here's a scarf that allows you to warm up to the trend before fully committing and sticking your head under.  It can be worn with just about anything that matches it color-wise.  Chicka chicka yeaa.
