Sleepless in Seattle

September 6, 2011

Well, we are back from the city that gave us Starbucks, and we certainly enjoyed ourselves! I must say, the people in Seattle are very kind and friendly, it really made the trip. We picked the best weekend to go, the weather was gorgeous and there was a lot going on in the city. I can’t wait to go back again!

I will let my photos speak for themselves, here is a glance at our fabulous long weekend…….

I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend wherever they were. It looks like September is going to be just as nice, so hopefully I can continue to wear dresses and shorts and other cute warm weather outfits 🙂

Around the web

August 15, 2011

Photo via Pinterest

Do you ever find yourself cruising around the web, and all of a sudden you go off on tangents that lead to the most amazing discoveries?

I have to admit, I find most of my inspiration these days on the web. I thought I’d share with you my latest web obsessions, and who knows maybe they will become your as well!

Such as…..

These amazing photo books from Blurb. I’m so tempted to make some as Christmas presents.

Or Missoni’s collection for Target. That bike is seriously calling my name!!

One of my new favorite street style blogs is I Want To Be Her!

As always, Etsy has amazing handmade goods. Like these super cute cards to send out to your friends. I miss getting snail mail!

Finally, along with a Twitter account, Tumblr account, and countless fashion blogs I check, I now have a Pinterst account. It’s a fun and easy way to make an online scrap-book like inspiration board. This way you can organize what inspires you, and find more inspiration from others with similar interests.

What has been inspiring you these days? I hope you enjoy these links, and find your own little gems this week on the web.

Light as air

August 11, 2011

Pink is my favorite color, there’s no doubt. It always looks good! From either extremely hot pink to pale soft pink, it’s always gorgeous. Pink floral prints, pink polka dots, there’s not comparison.  Needless to say, there is a lot of pink in my wardrobe.

I love how these nail strips turned out. They are fun, but easy to pair with outfits. It’s just the right hint of color.

My outfit was comfortable, but cute in its own way. I love this scarf, but sadly don’t wear it that often. The pink flowers are what draws me to it, and paired with a loose top they work perfectly with sleepy mornings. Oh, how I am ready for the weekend!!

And just for fun, here’s an out-take when my cat became interested….

Polkadots

August 9, 2011

Here’s a sneak peek at my upcoming project this week:

I love nail art, and since I don’t have time to do something so intricate myself, I’ve resorted to nail strips! They are easy, and quite fun! They also come in as many colors and patterns as you can imagine. Perfect for the girl that changes her mind all the time.

Now I can match my nails to my outfits! Dorky I know, but it’s such a simple pleasure and a way to treat myself every time I glance at my nails.

Check back soon to see how I styled them!

Beat the heat

August 3, 2011

In high summer, there’s nothing like a long, flowing maxi skirt to keep you cool. I love this patterned skirt not only for its lovely shades of green, but because it has two hidden pockets. Perfect for hiding treasures while you explore, or a pair of sunglasses while wandering in and out of shops.

Head to toe H&M excluding Delux fedora, Fossil watch, Spring ring, and Toms

This little ring is one of my favorites lately. It pairs perfectly with blue or green tones, as well as floral prints. And I just realized now that my nails kind of match the skirt, both are a broken shattered pattern!

I hope you’re having a great week, and going on your own adventures in the sun!

Over the weekend

August 1, 2011

Just a brief post to get back into the swing of blogging again. I have had a very busy summer so far, volunteering at a summer camp, training for a new job, and going on adventures wherever I can. I recently bought a new camera, and I can’t wait to experiment with it and hopefully update this blog more!

Here are a few pictures of my weekend. I hope everyone is enjoying the lovely summer weather, as I sure am!

Summer seems to have only just arrived, so I hope to capture all the summer outfits I have been dieing to wear and will post them here soon. See you soon!
