Moorten Botanical Garden

Moorten Botanical Garden's had been on my list of places I had been dying to go for many years. I don't remember when or where I first saw a picture of it but I know that I was in love right then and there. It's so funny seeing photos of things and then experiencing it for yourself. The actual greenhouse was a lot smaller than I had imagined but it definitely did not disappoint. The place was overflowing with lots of prickly cacti and SO hot. It was already around 120 in Palm Springs so it had to be at least 125 inside the greenhouse. We tried to stay and soak in as much as we could before darting outside to try and find some cooler shade.
All in all, this place was just as beautiful and magical as I hoped it wold be. I can't wait to go back someday.

Just wearing another sandal, dress, and basket bag combo. Once I find an outfit I like, I just stick with it for awhile. And this one was the perfect summer uniform.

Fall is right around the corner and so is pumpkin spiced flavor everything! One of my favorites is a pumpkin spiced latte and so many times I just want to share one with my fuzzy best friend!

BioClarity Clear Skin System!

IMG_4026 (1) IMG_4025 (1) FullSizeRender (5)
Ever since the end of my high school years, I have struggled with acne. Even to this day, I often struggle with hormonal acne which can be so frustrating. I’m really excited to be trying BioClarity, a three step process including Cleanse, Treatment, and Restoring Gel that is suitable for all skin types and helps battle against acne. Their products are cruelty free, vegan, paraben free and clinically proven....something I can really stand confidently behind!

Some of the active ingredients in BioClarity include chamomile flower extract, green tea extract, cucumber extract, and Floralux™ which is an innovative, new plant-based ingredient derived from chlorophyll. What could be better for your skin than natural products?!
I can honestly say that my skin was glowing right after using, so I am really looking forward to the results after using for a week and more. The first step of the face wash, which is the Cleanser, comes to a nice lather so that you really feel like you're cleaning your skin. Step Three with the Floralux™is probably my favorite step of the process. It's green which instantly makes me think of plants! Then the feeling of it on the skin is nice and refreshing, definitely the perfect last step of the BioClarity Clear Skin System.

Do you want to try BioClarity for yourself?? Good, because they have me a code for you to get 50% off!! Use code “MOPTOP” to get the BioClarity Clear Skin System for under $15! So worth it!!

#ModernTrail with Timberland

This week already is starting to feel like fall! The rainy clouds are starting to drift in as well as the colored leaves which means it's time to switch over to some of my fall favorites. Floral dresses are a favorite of mine for summer and I love transitioning them into fall as well. These Timberland lace up boots are absolutely perfect for helping me get into the fall season. They remind me of something I loved when I first started my blog years ago. Something about them drew me to them and they're going to fit perfectly into my fall wardrobe. I was also surprised by all of the different styles of boots Timberland has for fall! I love their classic 6" boot but they also have some other great lace up boots like these as well as Chelsea boots....and bags too! This bag is going to be great for lugging my laptop, planner and other work things around.

Something I really love about boots like these is that the more you wear them, the more character they get. They start to get beautiful creases and nicks that really make them your own. Plus they're going to be perfect for the rainy fall weather. I might be using them to jump in a puddle or two!

Who What Wear Roadtrip!

tonyaWWW-45 tonyaWWW-42 tonyaWWW-40 tonyaWWW-39 tonyaWWW-33 tonyaWWW-11 tonyaWWW-2 tonyaWWW-14

Last month, I was lucky enough to collaborate with Who What Wear and show them around my city of Portland, OR. This was such an incredible honor and I am still pinching myself to believe it actually happened. I took them to some of my favorite local spots around the city and of course took some outfit shots along the way. All of the outfits pictured above can be shopped on their ShopWhoWhatWear app! The app is so much fun to shop on because you can shop all of your favorite stores in one place. Rather than jumping from site to site, the app makes it easy for instance if you're searching for "black boots", you can look for them at once from all of the easy!

We ended the day with happy hour and a little get together at Clyde Common. My mom drove 3 hours just to make it to the happy hour to help celebrate! All in all, it was such an amazing experience that I won't ever forget. Thanks so much to the Who What Wear team for making it so great! 

To check out all of the places we went, make sure and see the full article on Who What Wear here as well as on MyDomaine here! Hope you guys like it!

Our Second Nature Jumpsuit and Maru Coffee

dawnphotography-86 dawnphotography-85 dawnphotography-81 dawnphotography-77 dawnphotography-69 dawnphotography-65
Can I just be transported back to LA real quick? I instantly fell in love with Maru Coffee. I had been stalking this place on instagram for so long, planning a visit when I made it back to LA. The place was just as I had imagined. I loved the gorgeous ceramic cups the lattes came it, the subtle dried flowers and the beautiful light that shined through out the shop. There's just something special about having a cup of coffee in a place that sets the mood.

Ok, I have a brand you guys NEED to check out. Our Second Nature is a hidden gem that I happened to stumble across over the summer and they're a new favorite of mine. They make the perfect minimal, unique pieces that I am sure you guys will love as well. When I wear this jumpsuit, I feel like I am wearing a piece of art. It's comfortable too and the belt gives it the perfect feminine touch. But honestly, I would probably rock it with out a belt too. Anyways, go check out Our Second Nature!! You won't be disappointed.

Stepping into Fall with Famous Footwear

tonya-2 tonya-1 tonya-5 tonya-4
Mules are a staple for my wardrobe! And I love ones that work for different seasons as well. Mules were a big trend for summer and they are definitely going to be going into fall as well! The thing I like best about these particular mules from Famous Footwear is how easily they slide on and off my foot! Perfect for an outfit change whether I want to pair them with simple jeans and a tee for the morning when I am on my way to get my daily iced latte. And then for later paired with a little black dress for the night. It's important for me to have a shoe that fits all of the different things I do throughout the day and week! They have a subtle mix of both casual and still dressy that gives them so much potential for many different looks and outfits.

Make sure and check out the shoes Famous Foorwear has right now! They have a great variety of styles that should fit your style or outfit choice! Are mules a part of your everyday style as well?


Thank you Famous Footwear for kindly sponsoring this blog post!

Last Bit of Summer in Faithfull the Brand

dawnphotography-109 dawnphotography-108 dawnphotography-102 dawnphotography-92 dawnphotography-106 dawnphotography-104 dawnphotography-91
Have you guys heard of Faithfull the Brand yet? I'm pretty sure most of you have but if you haven't, they're definitely a brand to know! They embody everything summer and effortless, cool style. Their pieces are so easy to wear and comfortable, perfect for days at the beach or lounging around with friends. Every piece I've ever had from Faithfull has been amazing. This romper was great for roaming around Los Angeles and the desert when I was there.

This weekend feels like the last little bit of summer. I went camping with some friends on Friday, then we went on a 7.5 mile hike the next day. Then I went to the river with my bf yesterday and today I'm going to go float the river! Obviously trying to pack as much summer as I can into this weekend mostly because I am in denial that it's almost coming to an end. As a kid, for some reason I wasn't a big summer person but it's without a doubt my favorite season now and this year was a good one.
