Spring Break..? (See Jane Off)

sandals (no explanation required)

dress (a cool-mom kaftan)
jean jacket (for cool desert nights)
sunglasses (because you need to lighten up on spring break)
bag (carrying baby stuff)
swim (the mesh says, ‘I’m ready to party’ but the one-piece says, ‘not too hard, though’)
tunic (pants optional)
tee (anywhere but Chicago)
shorts (I wore the dress version here!)

What is “adult spring break,’ you ask?  Going somewhere warm.  For half a week.  With a child.  Close enough but not too far that you regret flying with said child.  Going to bed at 8:30 (an hour after the child goes to bed).  Waking up at 6:30.  Ordering room service.  Maybe catching a TV movie.

I’m pretty excited!  I’m headed to Scottsdale at the end of the month with Eric and Harry and I’ve actually never been; it’s one of those places I think I’ve visited but haven’t.  An recommendations?  Let me know!

Also, Shopbop’s spring sale is underway!  I’ll share more favorites on instagram, but I’m personally adding the following to my cart:

Will buying spring clothes make warm weather come faster?  Probably not but it makes me feel better.


  1. We just got back from Scottsdale and it was the perfect place to escape the cold. Some places we ate and loved were La Grande Orange (we went a few times and since I've been dreaming about their avocado pizza, French pancakes and egg sandwich), St. Francis and The Henry. Have a great trip!

  2. Go to for kids – McCormick Stillman Railroad park. It has a nice playground, train, carrousel, and indoor miniature train village.

  3. The weather here in Scottsdale should be great for your visit! For casual restaurants, I'd recommend Flower Child, True Food, La Grande Orange and Chelsea's Kitchen. For a fancier dinner out, The Mission and Drinkwater's Steakhouse are my favorite. For activities, there are lots of hiking options, I haven't been but heard the Musical Instrument Museum is great, and the Desert Botanical Gardens are really pretty. I also love the Phoenix Art Museum (if you go downtown, I'd add Matt's Big Breakfast and Cibo to the restaurant list) and Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions! My email address is erica@luvinthebubble.com.

  4. Old Town Scottsdale – recommend FnB, Virtu, AZ88, Super Chunk Sweets & Treats, and Cartel Coffee Lab. Central/Downtown Phoenix – try Federal Pizza, Windsor, Churn (for ice cream & retro sweets), Nobuo at Teeter House, Pizzeria Bianco. Arcadia area – The Henry, Crudo, Postino, La Grande Orange. Things to do – Desert Botanical Garden/Papago Park, Musical Instrument Museum, Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West, McCormick-Stillman Train Park. Have fine!

  5. Most people just simply got in out of Tempe but it appeared to be the most perfect method to get away from a freezing. Quite a few destinations most people got plus treasured ended up being La Grande Citrus (most people moved a few times plus considering I have already been musing pertaining to its avocado nachos,
