In Photos: Jodi Sta. Maria's Bucket List-Worthy Trip in Sedona, Arizona
Celebrity holiday photos definitely inspire us to add items to our travel bucket lists time and time again, and with actress Jodi Sta. Maria's recent trip to the United States' rugged south west, we're definitely bumping up sunny Arizona to the top spot this summer!
She's not just in the outdoorsy destination for purely leisure, though; Jodi was handpicked by international clothing label H&M to be part of its S/S 2019 H&M Studio campaign, following the launch of her fellow Kapamilya star Nadine Lustre as the brand's first-ever Filipina endorser earlier this year.
Of course, despite being on a business trip, this Metro.Style cover girl was there to enjoy herself, too! Being an avid traveler herself, Jodi knew exactly how to make the most of the adventure.
On her first day in The Copper State, she concentrated on exploring Phoenix on foot, soaking in urban sights and sounds plus its unique climate that's both cool and dry—perfect for nighttime strolls in her stylish OOTDs.
It was a lovely way to get accustomed to her home away from home for a few days with the morning after bringing her to a much grander destination: Sedona.
Driving for miles and miles to reach the desert town that's known for its Mars-like terrain and unique rock structures and foliage, Jodi couldn't help but admire her surroundings and be in awe of all her new experiences in the unfamiliar setting.
There, she enjoyed everything from dressing herself in H&M Studio's newest collection's pieces to posing for stylish photos, admiring set designs for the day, cheering for female dirt bike riders, and listening to English folk rock trio The Staves who provided live musical entertainment.
"So before I show you what was waiting for us inside this teepee ??, the other glam explorers and I watched these strong and kick ass women hit the dirt road with their bikes—rain or shine! Then, we were serenaded by @thestaves with their folksy and enchanting tunes here in the desert!" she wrote on Instagram.

All in all, her Arizona trip was a living tribute to the H&M collection she was chosen to represent: a glam explorer who's unafraid to get up close and personal with a new and exciting foreign land filled with possibilities, a true traveler to the core whose style blends in seamlessly with where she is at any given time.
Styled by Patricia Coronado and H&M Head of Communications and Press Dan Cartagena Mejia, Jodi enjoyed herself to the highest level in Arizona and has definitely put the state on the map for anyone wishing to explore roads less traveled in their vacation opportunity.
