Saturday Sunday

April 21, 2014

DSC_1211 DSC_1221 DSC_1213 DSC_1224 DSC_1232 DSC_1239 2 I’ve decided something important. I need another day between Sunday and Monday. I’ve thought long and hard about this and I think it will do wonders for society. Friday nights are for gettin’ down, Saturdays are for day trips, Sundays are for brunch, lazily reading The Stranger in the sunlight, petting the cat, and going for a run, but we need just one more day for all that other stuff. Like sleeping most of the day, watching your Hulu cue, laundry, and cleaning your apartment. Those things really need their own separate day. Say aye if you agree with me.

End of My Rope

DSC_1185 DSC_1190 DSC_1172 DSC_1182 Lately I’ve been putting a lot of space between haircuts, chopping away at my own bangs (although I think I’m getting pretty good) and letting my hair grow super long. On top of that I’ve really been feeling my natural curl and have gotten quite a response about it from everyone in my life. My friend B. says it’s my sexy bed head, my boss S. said it looked like big ol’ 80s hair, and my students have said just about everything from, “You look like Katy Perry,” (huh?!) to “Curls make you look happy,” (hmmmm…). Regardless of all the commentary, I’m really enjoying it. Last year I let my dyed hair fade from nearly black to my natural color and I’ve been so completely happy with it, so it only seems fitting that I’m digging my natural curl now, too. Gotta love what Mama gave me.

The shot above is the view from my amazing apartment, and I wasn’t lying about those lingering purple sunsets in yesterday’s post. Honestly nothing makes me happier than coming home early from work, making up my favorite chicken salad and basking in the orange glow of my sun-soaked apartment. I love this time of year.

OUTFIT DETAILS  sweater, Banana Republic (also cute) | green jeans, Flying Monkey via Aprie | leopard wedges, Banana Republic (similar) | handbag, Madewell Transport Tote | nails, OPI Red | headphones, Urbanears “Platon” in black (…although I’m thinking of switching them for a more colorful pair. Thoughts?)

Bloom

April 15, 2014

DSC_1144 DSC_1139 DSC_1134 DSC_1135 DSC_1124 DSC_1168 Spring in Seattle is my happy place. It’s cherry blossoms and long walks through the park, afternoon lattes and flirty dresses, back yard barbecues and lingering purple sunsets. Those beautiful evenings out that seem to last forever and you’d really, really like them to. I love this city.

I’ve been waiting to enjoy this dress sans tights and today was the day. Throw in some nude heels and you’ve got the look. Each year my spring and summer outfits seem so simple after all the layering of fall and winter, but right now I’m relishing the ease of getting dressed when a coat is largely optional.

OUTFIT DETAILS  dress, LOFT | necklace, J.Crew | heels, Cole Haan (similar) | handbag, Madewell Transport Tote | sweater (last photo) Banana Republic
