One of my favorite ways to explore a city (or to get to know your own) is by trying out new coffee shops.  If you follow me on Instagram (@caitlinclairexo) or snapchat (@dashofdarling), then you know I am kind of a coffee freak… and why not pick something you love, and make a vow to try a new spot every weekend?  For example, after I got back from hawaii and I had my first acai bowl (pure heaven), Ben and I made it a point to try every (well-known) acai bowl when we got back to Arizona.  It really helped us get to know Arizona and the different neighborhoods better while forcing us out of comfort zones… and we were pretty successful until the brain freeze permanently set in haha.

Anyway, we’ve been doing the same with coffee – and one of our favorite ‘tried-and-true’ spots that I wanted to share with you is Cartel Coffee Lab.  Their coffee is insanely delicious (I love their vanilla latte and you should also try their chai tea latte (I like them ‘dirty’ with almond milk))!  They have several locations, from downtown to Scottsdale and Tempe… so you can get your fix anywhere (even online)!

On weekends I love to be comfortable, so I threw on this awesome stripe jersey dress from No Rest for Bridget last weekend and we hit the road (early before the temps reached triple-digits).  I love it because it’s stretchy and just so easy!  I hate having to overthink things on weekends and like feeling relaxed, so this dress was a no-brainer.  I had fun roaming around Phoenix (despite the blistering heat), drinking my coffee in this cute dress.

Anyway, what’s your favorite way to spend your weekends?
