Ya'll, summer is officially here and yesterday was the fourth hottest day on record in Phoenix! Say WHAT! It's crazy to believe, but the temps have officially hit 119 degrees and there is no cool down in sight (well, not yet at least -- but thankfully monsoon season is on its way). Hot temps aside, the past few days have been a bit of a whirlwind with the pop-up shop we had Saturday, the start of a few home updates and Scott being in a major crunch period to finish a big project for a major retail store (promise to share more soon - eck!). All in all, good things have been coming our way lately and we couldn't feel more blessed! Summer is known as the slow season for many, but I truly don't see this summer going by slowly at all! 

Lately, this look has been my go-to (even in these hot summer temps) - high-waisted skinnies, a sleeveless top, comfy booties and my new favorite rattan bag that has been coming everywhere with me lately! It may not feel like a super summery outfit, but I sure feel good in an outfit like this! I guess that's what style is all about, though, right? Wearing what makes you feel best and weaving in trends and popular styles as you see fit! Or, at least that's what I've been telling myself lately! ;) Can anyone else relate? Raise your hands, friends if you hear me!

Do ya'll have any plans for the rest of the week? Scott and I will be chugging along with our home projects + getting his big project finished up by the end of the week! We don't really have any other plans yet, but I'm looking forward to just relaxing after a few busy weeks! We do have a few really neat things in the works, though, and I can't wait to share all that with ya'll here soon! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have already heard about a recent collab we're working on with an amazing local brand! If not, take a peek at yesterday's Insta post here to get a sneak peek! // Be back soon, friends!
