Crochet Summer

I may or may not have an obsession with breakfast dates, especially ones at Liberty Market. A few days ago Scott and I went on a little breakfast date so that I could get my favorite yogurt + granola + dried fruit dish, and so we could share cortaditos (more on that later).

Crochet top: Levi's; Grey shirt: Gap; Quartz ring: Stone & Honey; Jeans: Levi's; Sandals: Saltwater Sandals

So before our breakfast came Scott and I drank mini cortaditos, which are mini lattes plus loads of raw sugar. They are a little intense (super sweet, and the espresso is strong), but they are so worth it.

Can you believe you can get a whole bowl of this drink? WOW! It must be SOO sweet!

On this particular morning I had this boho/hippie state-of-mind thing going on. Since we're on the verge of summer (it has been in the 90's all week), I'm going to attribute it to that. I just wanted (and still do) to wear braids in my hair and have it be wavy all the time (something that seems to be very hard for this naturally bone-straight hair girl).

Anyways, while waiting for our food we found out there was a bit of a mix-up and someone else got Scott's blueberry pancakes (woops!), but the restaurant was kind enough to offer us breakfast on them.

Best breakfast, ever!

When it comes to pancakes, I'm hard to impress (my grandma make the best), but Scott's blue berry pancakes were definitely impressive.

After finishing our delicious breakfast we headed outside to enjoy the sun and snap a couple of photos.

I'm still obsessed with this huge quartz ring I bought from Stone and Honey. When I'm in Colorado I'm hoping to find some unique jewelry. Every summer I seem to find something neat up there, so I'm hoping this summer isn't an exception.

Today is my last full day in Arizona before I head out for the summer. I have so many little errands to run, and I'm going to try and avoid as many melt-downs as possible (leaving is a very hard thing to do, and the last day always seems to bring on the tears). I am looking forwarding to spending all day with Scott and just enjoying each other's company. He keeps me grounded, and always knows the right things to say.

Have you ever tried a cortadito before? What's your favorite coffee drink?


  1. i would be obsessed with that ring still (& forever!) too, if it were mine. it's absolutely stunning and probably one of the prettiest rings i've seen. ever.

    your hair is perfect for that wavy-boho look. just add some curls, tease the ends a little and i'm sure you'd achieve it!!

  2. This is outfit is perfect! I especially love that top. Have a great time on your trip! I totally get the melt-down thing. I was in a long distance relationship with my hubs for the first year and it sucked everytime we said goodbye...even if we would see each other soon after!!

  3. I've never heard of a cortadito before. Sounds pretty intense :) That was nice of them to give you breakfast after the mixup! Not many places would do that.

    Also, I LOVE those sandals. I've been looking for some like that!

  4. Loving crochet tops, definitly on my lust list...I love yours!

  10. Yum breakfast dates are the best. I have never had a cortadito but it sounds interesting. I am now thinking I must find a place that serves them and drag my boyfriend out for a breakfast date :)

  11. I've never had a cortadito, but now I'm so interested in trying one!!

    Your outfit + hair + face are gorgeousness, lady!

  12. That coffee sounds delightful! I love your crochet top and wavy's style I favor often myself ;)

  13. That OUTFIT.
    That COFFEE.

    Holy wow! I love all of it!!! Your top especially is awesome. ^_^ Also, that was SO nice of the restaurant! And your ring is so cool! And I really wanna try that coffee!!!

    I love coffee and caffeine and sweet stuff. My favorite coffee is probably the chocolate ice cream and banana frappe I make. ^_^ Jen also makes amazing cappuccinos with the foam on top and it's so good!

  14. I've never had a cortadito but I'm currently loving skinny flat whites. It's a Melbourne thing that is simply scalding hot milk, espresso, and some sugar.

    Love the sandals!
