Instagram Round-up & Mini AZ Recap

Happy Wednesday from Scottsdale!! My husband, two of our best friends, and I got here last Friday to do a little mini ‘baby moon’ trip for them since they are expecting in May (SO EXCITING) and this is our last sunny hoorah before baby boy comes!!

Our agenda for this trip basically consisted of pool time, going to our favorite restaurants, and doing little shopping – nothing more, nothing less. That is just how I like it!! Some of the restaurants we made sure to go to were Isabella’s Kitchen, Sumomaya, and The Mission. I will say these are maybe our top 3 overall picks for the Scottsdale area – every single time we come down here we make sure to hit all three!! Overall, this trip came at a perfect time because not only had it been snowing in Seattle when we were home the past week, but Al and I needed a little R&R away from work and our daily routines so I am just so thankful for this timing. We are headed back to Washington today and this trip just didn’t seem long enough! I just love it down here I’m already trying to plan out when we can come back next 🙂 (and actually am coming down in May for a bachelorette party!) A lot of you were asking via Instagram DM’s about where we stay when we come down and if we rent a house and both my in laws and parents actually own second homes in Arizona, so luckily we are able to stay at their homes free of charge when we come down. This makes coming here a regular occurrence for us & is usually our go to place since we save so much money. So that is what we do! I will say that the Fairmont in Scottsdale would maybe be my resort of choice if we were to ever book a hotel 🙂 Or if you are looking for a less expensive option, The Saguaro is darling! I’ve been there once for a photoshoot and it was such a cute hotel!

Now I’m gonna wrap this up & show you guys all my insta-looks from the past week with links to everything! In case you missed it, this is my new routine for Saturday posts, (although this one is coming delayed due to vacation), so make sure to check back every weekend for easy shopping and sale alerts 🙂

You may also realize that I didn’t include any of the Instas from when we were in AZ, I am going to do a separate IG round up this weekend that will include all of those outfits & swim suits 🙂

These overall dresses are everywhere this year and to me it is so clear why! They are the cutest statement and can be worn in so many ways. I’ve posted this one styled other ways with a long sleeve and ankle booties HERE but loved this styling with the OTK boots!

Dress | Top ($10) | Boots | Similar Less Spendy Boots

This was my little #selfie of the week haha! I actually was chatting about some of my favorite NYX cosmetics including THIS mascara and THESE matte lip creams!

Top ($10) | Bedding | Similar Bed Frame | Similar Faux Plant

I wore this casual look to a lunch date this week and you guys seemed to love seeing more casual looks from me so this is a goal of mine – to bring more casual or athletic looks to my Insta and blog!

Top | Similar Denim (same place, almost identical) | Handbag | Similar Sneakers

This outfit is what I wore to our Galentine’s Day brunch a couple weekends ago but these pieces are darling for any occasion – not just Valentine’s Day! Wearing a size 4 in both the top & skirt!

Top | Skirt | Booties | Necklace | Glasses 

It has been a moment since I have posted ‘home’ content! I don’t do it too often but I really think that I am going to start. I feel like having my husband and his family building homes for a living and us living in a house that we completely custom remodeled – it’s such a huge part of my life that I really want to expand on and bring here! So be on the lookout for more home posts and I’d also love your ideas for this type of content 🙂

Shop our kitchen & some similar items (click arrows to scroll):


I will be bringing this full look to the blog within the next couple days or so but I really do think this cardigan might be one of the ‘it’ items this Spring. I found it in store, bought it, and within a couple of days started seeing it ALL over Instagram! The quality is amazing and it is SO incredibly soft. I just love it.

Hope you guys are having a great week so far!
