Now that we are already almost a month into 2015, I wanted to take a minute and look back to last year around this time and see what I was wearing, what I was thinking and where I was at the time. Last January I was finishing up my time in Seattle and about to head back to New York to brave the snow and chilly temps. Maybe someday I will do a roundup of all the various outfits I’ve worn on the blog over the past six years but for now, here are four different outfits I wore plus some links to a handful of other fun posts I wrote during that month: 30 Things About Me, three mini remix videos, favorite detail shots, and six love versus cringe outfits. xo
My apologies for not posting the past couple days! I always get so jet lagged coming back from Seattle, especially in the mornings since my body still feels three hours behind, so the past few days since I got back on Saturday night, have felt like a blur. It also takes me a bit of time to reenter back into New York after being away during the holidays, so that’s a part of it too. I feel like all I have done lately is sleep, clean, unpack and sleep some more. But, I think I am finally back on track, so I appreciate you bearing with me! :)
Now onto the outfit. These are probably the baggiest jeans I own but I absolutely adore them. I love the wash, the rips, the slouch and how comfortable they are. Who knows if they are even that flattering on me, but Casey claims to think they are spunky and cute, so that’s good enough for me!
I’ve been loving my little routine with my Dad and Barney lately. We grab coffee, take a nice long walk somewhere (yesterday it was up on Queen Anne) and then afterwards stop for lunch. I really cherish the quality time I get to spend with him while I’m home and feel lucky that he carves out time to be with me (and doesn’t mind taking photos for the blog:).
I love this photo. I was goofing off with Barney while my Dad was still snapping away, and he captured this gem of a moment. Love that puppy.
Barney LOVES his pretty suede collar from Yark. His neck is so big that most collars don’t fit him, but this one is perfect!

With only a week left in Seattle, I have been trying to fit in as many snuggles and walks with Barney as possible. Yesterday, my Dad and I took him to Woodland Park to run round a bit and burn off some energy. It’s amazing to watch him fly by you at record speed, all the while hoping he won’t barrel into you at the same time. But luckily his depth perception and agility never fails and he whizzes past like a lightening bolt just missing you by mere inches! I’m going to miss him so much after I leave. :/
But on a lighter note, I still have four full days with him, my family and friends, and I intend on taking full advantage of my time left!
Yesterday was Casey’s last day in Seattle so I wanted to make sure we had a fun Seattle-centric day. After breakfast, we drove over to Gas Works Park and took in the skyline, which was pretty incredible. The sun was shining and it was chilly out but overall pretty perfect weather considering that it’s freezing and snowing in other parts of the country right now. After that, we headed to University Village for lunch, then came home for a bit of work time, and then eventually back out for a little family dinner before heading to the airport (tear). I hate goodbyes, and even though I will see him next weekend, it doesn’t seem to make it any easier at the time of the actual goodbye. Does anyone else feel like that? It’s been so much fun having him over the past week and a half, I just didn’t want our mini vacation to end. Sigh.
On another note, I think I’m seeing a theme here with all my monochromatic outfits I’ve been wearing as of late. :) Today’s look started with these blue suede pumps from Nine West. I have been holding onto them for a while now but always struggled with how I wanted to style them. Finally, I just picked them up and started pulling together other blue items I had with me on this trip, and voila! This is what came out of it. I grabbed my beloved Mariners hat on the way out the door to add a playful yet casual touch to the overall look.

I hope getting back into the swing of things this week hasn’t been too rough on you and that you all have super fun weekend plans. I will be watching the Seahawks play tomorrow and then hopefully just having a relaxing Sunday at home with Barney, my parents and the Hallmark Channel. (No judgement!)
Sending love and good energy to you guys – thanks for being there. xo
