I’ve started to develop an obsession for graphic tees and tanks, and I love this one because it totally appeals to my nerdy side.

We’re not quite into full on boots weather, but I did break out my new report booties today (I had the nude ones, and just got the black ones as well).

Mint hues of summer

IMG_5860

It’s still not quite fall, and the Seattle weather seems determined to hold onto summer as long as possible. Another day in the 80s today!

I decided to wear my mint green Rag and Bone dress with my report booties and a grey cardigan. Accessorized with a bold gold necklace

Day dresses

I love day dresses. They’re the perfect outfit to throw on when you really don’t want to think about putting together an outfit. First up is my tried and true Bailey44 dress (which started my Bailey44 obsession). I paired it with nude booties and a gold necklace.

We had a pretty fabulous weekend. On Sunday, my little sister Brigitte turned 21!!!! She’s 5 years younger than me, so it was definitely ABOUT DAMN TIME! We had a pretty incredible weekend. Girls dinner and bar hopping starting at midnight on Saturday.

Party on Sunday night. I wore my new Velvet jersey dress. I love this dress, it’s super comfortable, and very easy to dress up and down. I paired it with my Cole Haan heels.

So much fun!

Keeping it Simple…

Some days it’s fun to dress it up…other days a tee and booties is just as satisfying. Plus, it is always fun to wear your new purchases!

Valentine’s Date Night at the Book Bindery

IMG_2477

Last night we both got dressed up for our Valentine’s Date Night at a new restaurant we’ve been wanting to try, Book Bindery.

IMG_2474  IMG_2469

I wore my Herve Leger v-neck bandage dress (here in black), black tights, black patent booties, and a silver multi-chain necklace. I threw on a tuxedo blazer since it was quite chilly last night.

The food was excellent. We both started with cocktails, mine was St. Germaine, grapefruit, and sparkling wine, and Nick’s was called the Islay Roy, and was scotch based.

The chef was super sweet, and made me a mini starter since I couldn’t partake in the amazing bread.

IMG_2481

For a starter, I had the arborio risotto with castelmagno cheese and winter truffles, and Nick had the slow poached hen egg with hand cut tagliatelle, parmesan broth, and herbs.

To pair with the main course, we tried out one of the Almquist wines, the 2009 Cab Franc. It was quite delicious, and had a spicy/fruity taste and aroma.

For the main course, Nick had the herb roasted sturgeon, with potato gnocchi, bacon marmalade, and lobster sauce. I had the lamb rack, with crispy panisse, braised chard, merguez sausage, and Niçoise olive lamb sauce.

For dessert, I had the cinnamon semifreddo with local apples, bourbon caramel, and a cider reduction. Nick had the s’mores, with warm chocolate cake, house made graham cracker, and smoked marshmallow.
