Southwest Casual

Recently Scott and I have been spending a lot of time in Scottsdale. Although the area is known for its million dollar houses, high-end stores, and old west themed downtown area - hidden in between all of this lies a few unique gems that really bring color and life to the area. Lately we've been enjoying exploring the area a little more, discovering dive(ish) bars that have great happy hours, and other little spots along the way. I've always been a Phoenix kind of gal, but Scottsdale sure has its perks too!

I've been wearing this black and while polka-dotted top on the regular lately (doubling up during the week and weekend for maximum wear - it's my current fave), and I really wanted to share how pretty the back is. However, because of the color and the pattern, it's hard to see its true beauty, but I love how the layered fabric creates the illusion of an open back, and adds an extra element to what could be considered a basic blouse. I'm all about the simple and subtle details, and this blouse sure delivers both.

Outfit details:
Top: Nordstroms
Bag: Madewell
Bracelets: Kate Spade
Leopard Kilty Mocs: c/o Minnetonka Moccasins

My work day has so far consisted of a meeting, lots of coffee, and my regular daily jam. This evening Scott and I are headed to Phoenix to meet our sweet friends, Sarah and Josh, and to celebrate their sweet baby girl that is due in November! We're meeting for happy hour and I couldn't be more excited to see them - its been too long!

What have you been up to today? Where's your favorite spot to go for happy hour?

  1. It is impossible to get through a day without lots of coffee! That is why working at a coffee shop trumps all jobs (not really:))
    I love the butterfly back shirt!
