Summer Brights


I’m back to blogging! I’ve been super busy lately, but finally finding the time. We’ve been having some incredible summer weather here in Seattle. It was 90 degrees and perfectly sunny today! Nick was complaining about the heat (we, like most Seattlites don’t have AC), but I absolutely loved it.


Our friends had an apartment-warming party on Saturday night, so I decided to dress up a pair of shorts for the warm weather.

I paired white shorts and a coral tee with a gold statement necklace and bright green wedges. The wedges are a new “purchase” from one of my coworkers (they were sadly too small for her, so she passed them on to me with quite the discount!). I love the combo cork and rope bottom!

Coordinated Coral and Weekend Adventures


Having my sister up in Seattle this summer has been a total blast (she’s working up here for an internship). We’re five years apart, but ridiculously close, and she’s truly my best friend. We always had similar style (and many of the same clothing pieces), but it has just gotten ridiculous on how much we’ve been non-intentionally coordinating!


I decided to take Friday off since my parents were in town. We started with a delicious breakfast at Café Presse. I enjoyed a cappuccino, a comté omelet, and yogurt with honey and walnuts. My mom and sister shared a Croque Madame!

Throughout the weekend, we enjoyed lots of grilling and time on the roof!

Saturday, we did a great hike to Heather Lake. My sister and I even jumped in!


Finally, on Sunday, errands around town. I had to return my pink skirt from this post Sad smile. The skirt ripped! Luckily, J Crew customer service was fantastic, and returned it without any issues even though it was final sale.

The jewelry is from my first BaubleBar purchase (here is my referral link). There was a sale, so the earrings were free, and I was also able to apply my $10 off initial credit. For the price I paid, I was quite happy with the quality (however, I don’t think I would have paid full price).
