This is the first year in my lifetime that I’m not going to be home for the most patriotic holiday there is (at least to me)… the 4th of July. We’re going to be in Paris this year for the 4th. While I couldn’t be more excited to be traveling in Europe, it does make me a bit sad to miss a holiday I always celebrate with my family.
What I’m Wearing
Top: James Perse Sheer Slub Panel Shirt, thrifted
Jeans: Levi’s 501 CT in Cottontail
Shoes: SJP Lady Pumps in Geranium
Necklace: BaubleBar x Anthropologie (similar colors)
I began to realize this week that we’re going to have to make the most of Memorial Day this year in terms of getting our patriotism on. Even though that’s not until the end of the month, this holiday is one that always sneaks up on me.

Am I the only one that procrastinates on purchasing gifts for their parents? Because the older I’ve gotten, the harder it has been to shop for them. (Sorry, Mom!) Really though, they have everything they need, and for the most part just buy things when they want to. Puts a lot of pressure on me to find just the right gift, so lately I’ve gone the boring route and suggested a dinner or lunch out.
That only can happen so often, so I set off to the Seattle Premium Outlets this weekend to check out the Indulge Event and see what the outlets had to offer. I was pleasantly surprised; there were a lot of the stereotypical sets of lotions and skin care (which yes, I do like, but often is one of those gifts that my Mom doesn’t always) but a lot of unique ideas too.
I’ve had so much fun thrift shopping the past few months with Seattle Goodwill. I’ve found some really great pieces (enough to make two oversized sweater outfits… my favorite fall staple!) that have incorporated well into my wardrobe, and I’ve rekindled my love of the thrift. Now, as much as I love a good thrift find… I’m sure you’ve been burned before. I know I have. And I almost got burned with something in this very outfit. Have you ever found the perfect vintage item only to get it home and realized… it’s not so perfect? Like maybe you get a certain pair of boots home and a certain liner falls out? Yeah that would never happen…
Last week I shared the first few fashion shows and events I went to in September, which was basically my whirlwind month. It was fun, but I’ve been so happy to have my nights and weekends back!
Bellevue Fashion Week Seven Salon Illuminssence Show
Wrapping up my fashion week experience was the Seven Salon Illuminessence Show. This show was absolutely amazing – I would say this is much more creative than any of the other shows, with intricate hair styles, unique and beautifully crafted outfits, and fast paced music. Continue reading
Last week, I had the privilege of being sent to Urban Campfire in Seattle by Luna with my friend Sarah. I hadn’t heard of Urban Campfire before, but after reading a bit about it, it sounded right up my alley. Inspiring women, check. S’mores, check. Held in an airplane hangar, check. Sounded pretty sweet to me.
