The other day, my friend Lauren and I were chatting via Instagram about our love for Native American jewelry. I spent several years (6 to be exact) traveling to Arizona with my church youth group for mission trips on the Navajo reservation. Besides the time we spent building relationships with the community, I loved shopping the roadside vendors. The jewelry is so beautiful, full of color and life and the craftsman ship is top notch. When I spotted these mules while out hunting one day, I snapped them up, barely looking at the price or label. The stripes and colors were so reminiscent of my Native American jewelry and those Southwest touches I love so much. As it turns out, the mules are made in Italy and from a pretty prominent and quality brand.

1. Chambray top

2. Skirt – So not a match, but how cute?? Love the graphic stripes. I could see this actually working with the shoes as long as the top was neutral and accessories were kept to a minimum.

3. Shoes – GENESIS CLOTHING COMPANY. Coming soon. ;) How fun is that to say?

4. Squash Blossom Necklace – If you like this style, I would set up an eBay search for “Squash Blossom Necklace.” I did a quick Etsy search and while I found a ton of gorgeous pieces, they were quite pricey (think $300-$2,000!) which I can only imagine is due to their authenticity and the sheer amount of turquoise stones.
