Generally I'm not one for patterns (although my tastes have seem to be shifting a little lately), but I always love a good stripe. Awhile ago I found this awesome striped dress at Levi's on a killer sale. Once I saw it, I knew it had to be mine.

Growing up Scott always had this love for stripes. When Scott and I first started dating (way back in 2006) he could almost always be found wearing a striped shirt. Stripes were kind of his trademark, and could be found in almost everything that he painted around that time.
While in downtown enjoying a nice coffee date at Lola Coffee, Scott and I took a stroll by a few historic buildings in downtown Phoenix. Among my favorites is two story brick building that these photos were taken in front of. I'm not quite sure what the building used to hold, more than likely someone's home, but today it is a law firm and they have some of the prettiest green grass in town.
The Coach bag that I'm carrying was a present from my parents on my 20th birthday. I just love a good leather cross-body bag, and having something that signifies an exciting time in my life.
The shirt Scott is wearing is one of his favorite, and was in retirement for quite some time because of the blown-out elbows it has. He just couldn't stay away from it though, and had to bring it back out for one last hooray (although I have a feeling it might be out for longer).
Being in downtown Phoenix always makes me yearn for a beautiful historic home where Scott and I can paint, decorate, and enjoy it the fullest. I honestly can't wait to own such a pretty home! Scott and I already have a few neighborhoods in mind, and I just know it's going to be amazing when the time comes.
If you could live anywhere, where would you live? Would it be in a historic home, or a recently built one?
