While Ben and I were vacationing in Pasadena we stumbled across the local Madewell and I gotta be honest, it's one of my favorite stores, so you know I couldn't resist popping in for a look around. I scored this effortless stripe jumpsuit and I love how easy it is to just throw on and look good. That's definitely my kind of outfit.

I love that it cinches at the waist with a sleek tie belt and the railroad stripes give it a cool vibe. But it also comes in chambray (which is currently 20% off)!

The comfortable wide legs are cropped to an ankle-length that is perfect for showing off your fabulous footwear. Pair them with a peep toe bootie or a killer heeled sandal.

I love rompers... I do. But I am 5'11" so they can be tricky for me to pull off. I like to look for ones that are adjustable, like this blue floral romper by Yumi Kim. When I saw these long straps that can be tied and worn in ten different ways, I knew it was a match. Not to mention how gorgeous this royal blue carnation floral print is.

It's really been heating up here in Arizona lately and has already been feeling like Summer. It's crazy and I am totally not ready for it. Arizona summers are brutal, my friends. Plus, I feel like the rest of the states are still in chilly winter and meanwhile I am pulling out my tanks and shorts already. Not gonna lie, I am kind of jealous of you all haha. But at least I get to wear pretty numbers like this romper, which definitely makes up for it.

DRESS: FOR LOVE & LEMONS CECELIA DRESS (I ALSO ADORE THIS WHITE PANELED DRESS)  |  SUNGLASSES: KAREN WALKER PINK SUNGLASSES  |  BAG: CHLOE CROSS BODY BAG  |  SHOES: MADEWELL (SIMILAR TAN SANDALS FRYE + JOIE)  |  BRACELETS: ALEX & ANI BANGLES  |  RING: TURQUOISE RING

Essense Bakery is one of my favorite local spots here in Phoenix. We absolutely love their breakfast, coffee and macarons. Their vanilla latte is literally the best one I have ever had (and I ordered them often and everywhere we go). Their macarons are also pretty much to-die-for. Get the espresso, vanilla bean and caramel. So good.

As for food, 'The Big Breakfast' and the 'Huevos Frencheros' are our go-to's. But everything is so light and fresh so I never leave there feeling too over the top full.

Last time we visited, I wore this amazing embroidered lace dress by For Love and Lemons and I am obsessed. It's so incredibly flattering on. It's one of those dresses I will definitely always gravitate towards when I need a 'feel good' outfit. You know, the outfit you always wear to an important meeting or first date. Yeah, it's one of those.

I also love this mesh paneled white midi dress that is kind of the new version of this dress. I think I may have to get it too haha. So good.

What do you guys think?

A few weekends ago Ben and I headed down to Scottsdale for an afternoon of fun in the sun. We started out with breakfast at one of our favorite spots, The Herb Box. You can order from their delicious menu either seated at the restaurant (I love their patio) or down below at their coffee and pastry joint, which is where we sat. I couldn't resist their whoopie pie, fruit tarte and a good old soy chai latte. But if you get a full breakfast, definitely try their red velvet pancakes and/or chilaquiles!

Afterwards we wandered around Old Town, shopping and exploring before heading to lunch at The Montauk. You may remember when I last blogged about them here. It's a super cute restaurant with a beachy vibe and the food is insane. This time, we got the creamy baked lobster roll and their coconut lemongrass ceviche. And ok, I have to say, I am not a big seafood eater... like, at all. But they came highly recommended and I just had to try - and I am still dreaming of them and can't wait to go back. I especially loved the ceviche as an app with some yummy cocktails.

Anyway, for exploring in the sunshine and sitting on the patio, I wore this cute off-shoulder denim chambray top and it's a definite favorite. I Instagrammed about it here and here and it sold out really fast. But they are currently restocking so you can pre-order your size, or it's also availble in select sizes here. But hurry because it's such a good top that it's bound to sell out again quickly.
