There's a sweet spot in the middle of spring when everything in Phoenix goes into full bloom! Those days seem to go by so fast, but this year I was determined to get a few photos in before all the blooms faded away. Down our street, we have the most gorgeous oleanders that bloom bright and full every spring. I'm sure they've been here for years and years, but I like to think that whomever planted them had a sense of humor, and a love for color -- pink, white, red, white, pink, red -- basically any other color combination you can imagine between these rows of florals! 

With the temps continuously rising - 100, 105, 110+ degrees, I've been searching my closet for every piece that would offer some kind of coolness during the day. However, ya'll know that I'm a fan of layers, so I couldn't help layering a few pieces from summer's past -- this denim vest from Madewell and my beloved Phoenix General X Hackwith Design Dress (here's this summer's version)!

While summer is nearly here, I'm still trying to savor these late spring days while we still can! Last night it was 98 degrees outside while we were on our evening walk, and while that may sound super hot -- with a slight breeze it felt just warm and perfect. But seriously, though -- only a true desert rat would say that, haha! Anyways, I am looking forward to the summer months -- all the iced coffee and matcha (Peixoto Coffee seriously makes the best!), lots of light denim + strappy sandals, and a big trip that Scott and I have literally been dreaming of since we were teenagers! Any guesses as to where we're going? xo
