Look of the Day: Cool Enough for Jeans

Oh, thank goodness. It was cloudy all day and didn't get any hotter than 72. Only Seattlites miss the clouds, right?

I got to wear long sleeves and pants all day! These Levi's are my current favorite. I wear them pretty much whenever I'm not at work. The glasses are vintage Liz Claiborne and are up for grabs in my Etsy shop!

 Oh! And the bag! It's the Coach I've been wanting for forever. I found it at Value Village a couple weeks ago. It's in beautiful condition. I couldn't be happier with it! I found the Via Spiga sandals at the same time. They were a steal.

Three Summer Looks

 I took tons of photos the other day, but the lighting just wasn't right. The photos for these 3 outfits were all pretty ho-hum, and two photos just doesn't seem like enough for a post, so I decided to combine them!

This chambray skirt was thrifted in Palm Springs and just sold on Etsy.

I had this dress hemmed to a shorter length and is still available in my Etsy shop! I love the rainbow pattern!

 I've been eyeing this Baggu bag at work for, like, the whole time I've worked there and decided to buy it for Palm Springs. The combinations of short and long handles made it great for travelling! My only complaint is that the blue rubbed off on my white romper -_-

The marbled shorts are just $10 (in-store) at Gap right now!

One final note, I'm having a mid-summer sale in my Etsy shop. Gotta make room in my apartment for Fall stuff! Use coupon code MIDSUMMER20 to get 20% off anything, even sale items! Ends 8/2

Look of the Day: Daisy Mini Dress



This dress is a little shorter than I usually wear, but it's been so unusually hot here that I've stopped caring. I wore it a lot in Palm Springs, too. I love it paired with the other yellows and patterns. It's pretty stretchy, so it fits like a glove. You want it? Well, you can buy it in my Etsy shop!

Look of the Day: Summer Blues


 Always in search of the perfect baby doll dress. This is may be it. I love the color, the simpleness; and it's the nicest lightweight chambray.

Long Weekend: Palm Springs

 If you follow my Instagram, you're probably sick of hearing about Palm Springs by now. If you don't, well, get ready for the onslaught of cactus pictures! I've got another blog post planned featuring just photos from our outing to Moorten Botanical Gardens.

This was, like, our first real vacation. You know, the kind where it's really hot and you wear sunhats and sit by the pool and can start drinking whenever you feel like it? Now I know why people go on these things.

 We stayed at Alcazar Palm Springs. It's a lovely, little boutique hotel in the Design District. Our room had its own private patio, which I enjoyed in 10-15 minute intervals. As expected, it was very hot, but the humidity was a surprise (61% the day I flew in). It's the middle of the desert and we managed to arrive right in the middle of a weird weather pattern!

Luck and the wrong bus stop led us to Ernest Coffee. They serve Stumptown, which is always delicious, and both our baristas had connections to the Northwest. It was like being home.



Palm Springs is so beautiful and the grounds at Alcazar were no exception; shady and green.

Look of the Day: Blue Hawaii

I wish I was in Hawaii, but no. As you read this, I'm probably dead in the middle of the desert. My husband and I got talked into going to Palm Springs. It's supposed to be 109º when I fly in on Friday and will cool off 4º on Saturday. At least, by the time I fly home to Seattle, our predicted ninety-degree weather will seem downright pleasant.

I'm actually pretty excited, though. I will take lots of photos of all the cool desert stuff and the mid-century architecture!
