If there’s one thing you should know about Seattle in the springtime, it’s the cherry blossoms. After months of dark and dreary overcast days, flowers finally transition willowy branches all over the city into cotton candy flurries of pure joy. As any other self-respecting Seattle blogger, I had to pay homage to my newly thrifted spring dress by positioning it in front of this loveliness. Thankfully it was a sunny day and not too chilly while I snapped these photos on my friend K.’s beautiful Phinney Ridge street.

I wore this little outfit for a Sunday afternoon outing that included a coffee date at Victrola, feeding my friend’s cats, then off to run a few errands. I’ve been living in my favorite vintage trench this spring. It’s light, yet warm, and fits comfortably over any outfit. Plus, it has deep pockets, a hood just in case, and a darling tie detail on the front that’s a little more feminine than most of the modern styles I’ve seen in stores.

I thrifted this darling free people dress a few days ago at Value Village and I knew it was coming home with me the moment I saw it. It’s more of a swing shape, but today I decided to belt it to better emphasize my waist. I’m dying to layer a white tee underneath to give it a totally different look the next time I wear it.

Ballet flats are having a major moment right now, so it’s been fun pairing these comfy flats with new outfits, especially on a casual Sunday like today. It was also the first day I pulled out my summer go-to cross-body, this blush number from Rebecca Minkoff.
