Happy New Year! Any fun plans for tonight? I am heading to dinner, then off to a little get together at a friend’s house. Even though the evening will be fairly low key, I always love to dress up and will use any excuse to do so. But, to be perfectly honest, I always kind of dread having to look for dresses for these occasions because most of the options are either sleeveless or strapless. Both of which I cringe at, especially during the winter when I am pale and my arms always feel out of shape. I feel like everyone has something about themselves that they are critical of, whether it’s rational or not, and mine are my arms, but with that said, this year I am working hard at accepting how I look when baring my arms and shoulders in strapless and sleeveless pieces. And now after teaming up with Dove (read my previous post here) and using their go sleeveless Soothing Chamomile Deodorant, I am slowly but surely changing my attitude and embracing revealing my arms in sleeveless styles.

I hope you all had a relaxing and happy holiday. I spent mine surrounded by friends and family, eating lots of yummy food, playing games and catching up with loved ones. It’s always hard once Christmas is over, but I still have a bit of time left in Seattle to relax, enjoy my time here, and soak up the beautiful scenery. I’m also really looking forward to my New Year’s Eve plans…but more to come on that soon! Hope your Monday is a happy one! xoxo

I hope your holiday was filled with lots of family, food and fun. xoxo

I hope you all had a lovely Fourth of July! My plans changed at the last minute and I ended up staying in town, but still had a great time. It was low key with no traffic, drama or stress, and consisted of eating and lounging on the couch with my best friend and her husband. We ate tasty polish sausages, corn on the cob and munched on homemade oatmeal cookies. When it came time to watch the fireworks, we grabbed blankets and foldable chairs and headed across the street to Greenlake where we had a prime view of the fireworks show going on downtown. It was an excellent time.

As far as this outfit goes, it was something that I just slipped on over the weekend to go grab happy hour drinks down in Ballard with a good friend. I’ve realized that I need to get these wedges in black, because as much as I love the cognac color, I think having them in two colors would be a good wardrobe investment.

Do you guys have a favorite pair of shoes that you wish you had in more than one color? xoxo

Happy Thanksgiving, lovelies! What are your holiday plans? This will be the first Thanksgiving ever that I won’t be with my family in Seattle, but luckily my best friend and her boyfriend are hosting a lovely meal at their apartment this year. So, tomorrow I will be hanging out with friends, sipping wine, munching on olives and cheese and taking lots of photos of all the yummy dishes Allie prepared. Check back on Friday to see all the fun photos!

I hope you all had a lovely holiday weekend. I spent mine at a family clam boil and it was so much fun! This was my fourth of July outfit, which is a dress that didn’t fit correctly in the top, so I turned it into a skirt by tucking the top part underneath. I love it when you can transform an item of clothing into something unexpected! Anyway, I wanted to incorporate the traditional red, white and blue, so I opted for a navy blue tank-slip and a crisp white blazer. What did you wear for the 4th?
