then you know I recently got back from a fabulous Arizona getaway! I've been to Scottsdale before, but this was my first time in Sedona, and holy smokes it is absolutely GORGEOUS
(I've never been good with maps. Thank God for Siri. Ha!)
On this particular day we were supposed to go the Grand Canyon, but the forecast called for snow and thunderstorms. Can you believe that? So we stayed put and I am so glad we did, because I can't imagine a day at the Grand Canyon would have been more beautiful than a day amongst the red rocks.

I was not expecting temperatures in the 40's on a late April trip to Arizona, and I refused to bring a coat, so I just layered up and tried to be simply chic, simply comfortable, and simply warm. I think I nailed everything except the latter :(

**Simply Chic Travel Tip: Sedona**
Sedona is a pretty large city and it's divided into 3 very distinct areas; Uptown Sedona, West Sedona, and Oak Creek. Stay in West Sedona if you want to be close but not right in all the action. Uptown is nice with swank hotels and shops, but beware it's a bit touristy. Oak Creek is further out and I would probably not stay out there but you must take the drive up Hwy 179 (preferably in a Jeep...when in Rome, right) that leads to Oak Creek. It's breathtaking!
