In The Desert

Free People Dress (on sale), Sweet & Spark Vintage NecklaceChloe Bag, Dolce Vita Sandals (on sale), Ray Ban Sunglasses

We spent this past weekend in Moab and it was my first time to Utah. I knew it was going to be beautiful and so scenic, but it’s absolutely breathtaking in person. Driving to our hotel we were in awe of the huge red rocks and mountains all around us in every direction. On our first day, we explored the property around our hotel and headed to the pool for a dip to beat the hot weather. We had a lot of outdoor activities planned for the weekend (hiking in Arches National Park and Canyonlands, floating the Colorado River and more), but we also wanted some quiet time to take in the serene surroundings.

I brought a lot of breezy boho tops and dresses for the trip knowing I’d want something simple to slip into after our long days spent outside. I’m just in love with this Free People dress I bought on sale right before our trip. It’s so beautiful in person with its muted colors, cut-out back and gauzy fabric. I paired it with my favorite gladiator sandals (now on sale as well) and Chloe cross body bag that I usually bring with me on trips (it’s the perfect size and doesn’t take up too much room in my bag).

Neutral Territory

Free People Coat, Ella Moss Top, Free People Faux Leather Pants, Vince Loafers, Givenchy Bag c/o Luisaviaroma, All The Wire Ring

When it doubt about what to wear, always lean back on your neutrals. A classic combination of black and camel will be forever chic and timeless. Since we pretty much wear coats and jackets year round in SF, I picked up this Free People one knowing how much use I’d get out of it. It’s more like a heavy sweater than coat and is so cozy that I keep reaching for it when I get cold in our apartment. I am also obsessed with my new Givenchy bag thanks to Luisaviaroma- it’s the perfect shape, color, style, everything for fall! I’ve always loved the Givenchy Antigona bag and this three-toned version is extra special. You can shop more of my favorite black and camel pieces here…

Embroidered Topshop Dress

Topshop Dress (on sale, top version here), Hat, Booties (on sale) & Belt c/o

I’m bummed we’re missing Outside Lands this year, but still excited about this weekend because we’re in beautiful Moab, Utah (you can follow along on my insta @juliahengel) with our family. If I was in town, I’d definitely wear this exact outfit to the shows- big hat, comfy booties, boho dress…check, check, and check. I could easily live in loose, breezy dresses like this Topshop one, especially with its sequin and embroidered details. This one is almost sold out, but I also really love the top version, this embroidered mini and this other aztec print dress (also on sale). Happy Friday!

A big thank you to Topshop for sponsoring this post.
