Look of the Day: Olive Silk Skirt & Polka Dot Blouse

 OMG, tomorrow is my birthday!! I usually throw a relaxed, but large get together down at the beach, but it seemed like too much work. I'll probably regret not getting all my friends together, but sometimes you just don't feel like being the center of attention. Instead, I'm going to have lunch in Ballard, with my mom and sister, then wander wherever I feel like wandering. After all, that's my favorite activity.

Look of the Day: Plaid Shirt Dress & Coach Bucket Bag

By far one of my favorite Value Village finds, this dress makes me feel cool enough to be in Ferris Bueller. I'm now always on the look out for 80s-era plaids similar to this one.

 The Coach was in immaculate condition when I found it at Crossroads Trading but of course I've put a few miles on it. It's rare and the cognac leather just a shade darker than the classic English Tan. The minute I saw it on the wall behind the cash register, I knew it was going in the collection. It was a steal at $35!

Look of the Day: Striped Linen Dress & Rust Cardigan

One of my best friends from high school was in town this week, so I took some days off from work and enjoyed a staycation. We went to Golden Gardens on Thursday and, yesterday, had a small potluck with our friends down in Tacoma. Tiana's summer visits are about the only thing I ever plan for during the summer, and they're always special. We've known each other since 3rd grade! It goes without saying, we're pretty comfortable talking about anything. On Thursday, she let me know she wasn't happy with my lack of blog content. I've missed blogging regularly, and I'm happy to have the encouragement. 

Tiana, I know you're reading this. I just spent like 3 hours photographing things I've worn over the past couple weeks, so keep an eye out for more posts!

 This linen-blend dress is on clearance at Old Navy right now!
