It’s Monday

….and I think we’d all rather be somewhere that resembles something more like this:


but we will survive [with plenty of coffee]… and it’s a short week so keep your head up!

Seattle Recap

Seattle was a relaxful dream, such a cool city!  It was a great mini vacation to spend with my mom and her friend before starting a new job this week.

We walked everywhere and I got to see everything on my list.  Of course we went and checked out the Space Needle, and explored the EMP music museum which was super cool, we obviously made the trip the OG Starbucks and got some lattes, and did lots of shopping and eating at some really great places in the city.  My favorite was Pike Place Market and looking at the incredible selection of flowers and produce.  Everyone was carrying around beautiful bouquets of Dalias and Peonies I wanted to buy some to bring back to our hotel!  We decided that Seattle has the best flowers to brighten up their days when it’s constantly raining.

Here’s some memories from the trip (links below for my favorite spots)


We were constantly asking for recommendations for places to eat and we never got a bad one, which I’m assuming means there’s no bad food in Seattle.

1. Pink Door was the coolest Italian restaurant that has different types of entertainment going on each night. When we went, there was a trapeze artist swinging from the ceiling above everyone’s tables

2. Knee High Stocking Co. was a cute prohibition style restaurant where you had to ring the doorbell to get inside.  Lots of cool cocktails and delicious food… and right across the street was……

3. Pie Bar… yes a bar that serves amazing pie. Need I say more?

4. Smith was also delicious I got a burger that did not disappoint

4. For shopping we went to Capitol Hill and Pioneer Square and looked at all the vintage/thrift shops and got my brother a Hawaiian shirt in the pictures above and bought some records from an antique store

5. Glasswing was a boutique with awesome interiors and great clothes  (you can see it in some of the pictures above as well)


Seattle Style

 I’m pretty excited for this weekend because I’m going to Seattle with my mom and her friend.  I’ve never been before so I can’t wait to explore around and eat a bunch of delicious food.  Of course it looks like nothin’ but rain for the duration of our stay, but I’m really not that surprised considering it seems to rain there everyday.  I put together a little outfit inspiration that’s perfect for walking around all day, lookin’ chic, and staying somewhat dry. Have a looksie:

the great debate

So it’s wedding season and my friend and I were having a deep, intellectual debate about the number one fashion faux pas at weddings: don’t wear white. She was sending me potential options to wear to her cousin’s wedding and I told her the white one she found was off limits. But after much discussion I started to wonder if that rule was a thing of the past.  And after some research I found some pretty cute white dresses that I might consider wearing to a wedding. What do you think… are you brave enough to wear one of these to a wedding?  Would you care if someone showed up in a white dress to yours? I don’t think I would… with the right accessories and shoes I feel like you could get away with it.
