When you think of the ol' American West, you imagine a kind of rugged glamour: the open desert, the mountains, and the outlaws and cowboys and cattle ranchers who made up its colorful history. Although much of the landscape is now as urban as NYC, there are still places where hip coffee shops and buzzy restaurants are interspersed with horseback riding trails and cowboy bars. Places like Phoenix.
To get a tour of the city by a true local, we tapped Caitlin Lindquist, whose blog, A Little Dash of Darling
, showcases not only her killer outfits but also her city's charm. A recent transplant herself (she moved from San Diego a year ago), Lindquist lets us tag along as she visits the city's most scenic spots — all while sporting her favorite sweats by Old Navy
. She dishes on how she styles her sweats, reveals her favorite stops for coffee and macarons, and even tells us where we can find real cowboys in Phoenix, ahead.
