(I took this photo from my friend’s roof deck. Lucky guy!)
After being away for almost three weeks, I was pretty happy to spend time in my city this weekend. The weather was amazing, I was surrounded by friends and family for two days straight and spent a ton of time outside in the sun. Plus I was able to live in this dress without being cold, while downing iced coffee. Spring is a glorious time of year, even if it can feel fleeting at times.
Wearing Karen Walker “Helter Skelter” Sunglasses, a denim vest from Forever 21, a Zara dress, and a fedora I bought last summer from Target.
On Sunday I ordered an excellent Jambon Beurre baguette sandwich from Lafayette. The bonus? They add mini gherkins!
Blooms are blossoming everywhere!
Obsessed with my new dress from Zara.
More gorgeous skyline views of New York and the Chrysler Building. These images will never get old to me.
This is Frankie, my friend’s dingo. She’s my little East Village love.
This bakery makes me miss Paris.
One gigantic marshmellow!
The very beautiful, yet very exclusive Gramercy Park.
More beautiful blooms!
Happy Monday, my loves. I hope you have a lovely week. xo
Just a fun little roundup for your Friday of some my recent outfits I’ve shared on Instagram. To see more, follow me here!
Spring is finally here, at least I think it is (please stay 60 degree weather!), and that makes me so excited to starting trying out new color combinations. I found this great roundup on Who What Wear thanks to one of my clients and wanted to share it with you guys. Some of these pairings are more expected than others but that’s what makes palette experimenting so fun! So, which one of these color trifectas would you try?
One of my favorite views of Seattle from the overlook at Kerry Park.
Spring is finally here!
Funny puppy. I like how it looks like he is smiling for the camera.
The houses surrounding Volunteer Park on Capitol Hill are so majestic and beautiful. I could stare at them (and cherry blossoms) all day.
We climbed the castle. 100 steps exactly!
Another amazing view at the top of Queen Anne.
While I was in college, my parents sold the house I grew up in and decided it was time for a change. So they left Richmond Beach, which is about 20 minutes north of Seattle, and moved to Lake Union to live on a houseboat for a year. The scenery was amazing from the top deck, which was of a perfect, unobstructed view of the Space Needle and all of downtown Seattle. Unbeatable.
Goofing off at my Godmother’s surprise party on Saturday.
My amazing parents, who celebrated 40 years of marriage last month. Love you both! xo
I fell in love with this skirt from J.Crew and decided to remix it four different ways, creating four different styles. I tried to keep a few of the items consistent throughout a couple of the looks, like my necklace and the bags I used. Now I’d love to know, which look is your favorite? You can check out each look in more detail in the above links. Happy Friday, everyone! xo
Shop all four looks!

There’s nothing like a blindingly bright monochromatic outfit to get you going on Thursday, am I right?! This is my last outfit remixing this skirt and boy did I have fun doing so.

What are you guys eyeing?

Spotted these paint-splattered jeans at Zara a couple weeks ago and finally picked them up during a visit to the Seattle location this past weekend. I love how they seem to mirror the pattern of the fallen cherry blossoms on the ground.
Went for a nice walk around Greenlake on Sunday with my best friend who just had a baby boy. (They named him Wyatt – such a cute name.) It was gorgeous out and I can’t seem to get enough of all the cherry blossom trees. They are everywhere!
Spent part of my Saturday with a bunch of darling women who hired me for a group styling session. We sipped champagne and talked all things clothing. Will be putting together a post on that soon, so stay tuned!
I had a bit of time before my styling session on Saturday afternoon, so I accompanied a close friend to her appointment to look at wedding dresses downtown. So many choices, it’s crazy!
Baby Wyatt’s little feet. Are these not the tiniest socks you’ve ever seen?!
Obsessed with these gorgeous earrings from Bauble Bar x Nordstrom. The collection will be available for eight weeks and launches today. You can shop the collection here!
I finally found a pair of white heels for spring. And they were under $100!
One more cherry blossom shot for good measure. Hope your weekend was lovely! :) xo
