All Tied Up

Now that our days in Phoenix are hitting the 100 degree mark, I've been pulling out my short-sleeve tops, skirts, and dresses, all the while trying to avoid too many layers and heavy fabrics (but really, I still love wearing my cardigans in those chilly shopping centers and movie theaters). At the Arizona Blogger Conference a few weeks back (just a few hours before I got engaged - eck!) I had the pleasure of meeting a lovely lady (Hi Carlyn!) from Minnesota that is working with Lily & Violet, an online shop and brick and mortar store in Minneapolis, Minnesota (wish I could make their grand opening party this weekend!). It was SO neat to meet someone from so far away who came to Phoenix just to check out the city and catch a ballgame. From what I can tell, folks from the Mini-Apple have a ton of pride for their city, just like us Phoenicians do (Phoenix residents if you're getting all J school on me)!

Lily & Violet's All Tied Up Blouse has become a warm weather staple recently. I love the sheer, breathable fabric, the cute bow and dainty ruffles, and the scalloped pattern, of course - perfect for running around town or for time at the office (my new outfit challenge!).

Outfit details:
Jeans: Levi's
Bracelets: Kate Spade, vintage, & Jcrew
Purse: Kate Space
Sandals: Madewell

Today I've spent some time with family, checked out the spring/summer goods at Frances Vintage, and did a little shopping with my fiancĂ© at Madewell and H&M. 

How has your day been? Have you ever checked out the Lily & Violet shop? They have SO many cute pieces for spring and summer!

  1. That's such a great idea/excuse to visit another city! I may have to look into that. Thanks!


  2. Love your blouse, and yes, I just peeked at Lily & Violet and they have the cutest stuff. I'm seriously thinking I need to get that blouse. Adore your entire look here, so pretty! xo
