Morning! This past weekend was such a busy one, but I am happy to be back at the grind of school. In almost a month I graduate with my bachelor's degree in journalism, and in less than a month I turn 23! It's going to be such a busy month, but I'm ready for it (only with Scott by my side, of course-he keeps me grounded during crazy times).

Scott and I took these photos the other day before we left to spend the weekend with my family in Yuma, Ariz. We went to downtown Mesa with plans of just taking photos and heading out for some lunch before class, but right after we parked we noticed the neatest little shop-an antique typewriter sales and repair shop. Scott and I had a great time talking to the owner about vintage typewriters, and geeking out over the amazing pieces he had in his shop. Scott snapped a few photos while we were there, and I will try and share a few of those soon! It was so nice though to find something new and amazing in an area that you thought you knew so well.
Right after we got done chatting at the typewriter store we went over to a local coffee shop to grab some iced coffee. Scott and I have been going to Inside the Bungalow for years and years (more when it was actually Coffee Talk though). The iced coffee that day was fairly good, and I was happy to hear that the beans came from a local AZ roaster!
Not too long ago I received these amazing polka dot tights from We Love Colors. I've been having a hard time figuring out what to style them with, since they are already a statement piece by themselves. I decided to pair them with a neutral dress and colorful cardigan to balance the outfit out. I felt a little bit like Alice from Alice in Wonderful, but in a good way! I also wore this outfit to class and felt really comfy (yet cute) throughout the day.
On another note, can you believe that Phoenix has officially skipped the whole season of spring and has jumped right into summer? Oh my! At least is prepared for all the sandal weather we're going to be having from here until later October!
Lastly, I've been relying on coffee to keep my mind and body going lately (sleep just isn't enough). I pretty much always have an iced coffee in my hand! Even during mini-photoshoots I can't get away, see:
This post seems a little all over the place, but that's just how I've been lately! Spring is such a crazy time of year!
What are you up to today? Do you have any typewriter stores in your town? What's been keeping you going lately?
