Meet Christina and Robert, a couple whose photos welcome us in to their daily lives of fashionable fun. Since transplanting from New York to Phoenix three years ago, this husband and wife team has garnered a following of 80K Instagram followers (@newdarlings) and honed their website into an adorably engaging stop for lifestyle inspiration.

They were kind enough to take some time from their photo journaling to answer a few questions for us.

What things do you enjoy about fall in Arizona?

These next few months in Arizona are our favorite! The temperatures drop a bit and everyone is outside, bundled up, enjoying the crisp air. We love to just sit outside around a bonfire with friends and play some music. Originally being from the east coast where it can get pretty cold this time of year, we try to soak up as much “fall” as the desert will give us.

What clothing/accessories are you excited to break out for the fall & winter?

The fall and winter seasons are our favorite for fashion—pretty ironic we live in the desert, right? (Haha) The layers, accessories, textures—we love it! We’re looking forward to pulling out some heavy knits and jackets from the back of our closets. We recently picked up these awesome oversized scarves in a plaid pattern that are pretty cozy. It basically feels like you’re stepping outside with your favorite blanket wrapped around you. We’re thinking this style would look great paired with a leather jacket and some denim.

What are you looking forward to in regards to New Darlings?

Our blog is constantly evolving and growing with time. There are so many creative outlets that interest us: fashion, travel, interior design, and it’s exciting to be able to share that with people who share similar passions. We’re looking forward to sharing some upcoming trips and a few home and design features as well in the next few months.
