Sundresses & Sunshine

Who am I to kid anyone, one of my top 5 favorite things about summer is being able to put on a simple sundress and magically look put together. Don’t get me wrong, I adore fashion, but I love the effortless look of a sundress. One of my favorite websites to buy simple sundresses is Tobi. Everything is super affordable, and new items are always 30% off! Any basically everything on their site comes in mint or teal (my favorite colors), so they have officially stolen my heart.

With summer winding down, I am feeling the sudden urge to adventure and explore in my own city. I look back at my planner and realize I spent very few weekends here in Seattle. In the spirit of spontaneity, a few girlfriends and I decided to hop on the water taxi downtown and spend the day on Alki. I haven’t spent a lot of time on Alki, but I am hooked! The boardwalk, skaters, sand, and amount of ice cream being consumed truly made me feel like I was in a little beach town. It is amazing to me that you can escape the hustle bustle of the city in just 15 minutes and find yourself in a place with a completely different vibe. I don’t know if it was the mimosas on the deck at Christo’s On Alki, or the sunburn I was acquiring, but for the first time in a long time I felt like Seattle was where I wanted to be.

As summer winds down, I am going to enjoy the best that Seattle has to offer. Please let me know of any secret rooftop happy hours that are going on behind my back. Until next time… Salutations, Sunburns & Seahawks.

A Seattle Summer to Remember

I think we can all agree, this summer has been phenomenal. With what seems like endless sunny days, I can’t even begin to fathom the idea that summer may actually end. At the beginning of summer I promised myself that I would go on as many adventures as possible, do what I want to do, see what I wanted to see. All in all, I am happy. Countless weekends spent at the Gorge, staying out too late on weeknights for sunset cruises on the lake, and countless evenings on the roof giggling and drinking wine. All in all, I don’t think I can beat this summer. And to top it all off, there is still so much summer to enjoy. Football, bbqs, birthdays, trip planning & many more memories to be made. Time to start planning my next adventure. I am no good at Seattle’s rainy season. Peace, love & popsicle’s. Image
