DSC_0505Happy Summer! Well…almost. This weekend felt like summer. It was just perfect out. I was singing “Summer Breeze” by Seals and Crofts all day in my head. It was lovely. On Sunday I went to Brunch Boot Camp, and event put on by Sur la Table and Whole Foods Markets and wore this outfit. It was a blast! It was out at the Sur la Table store out in beautiful Kirkland and we were treated to delectable goodies, cooking tips, Bloody Mary eggs benedict, basil infused mimosas, and even got to arrange flowers. I’ll share the recipes in a future post. Plus, tons of my favorite blogger friends were in attendance. Total bonus, I got to drive my pal Katrina home.

Even well into the evening on Sunday night it was still perfect out. I’m absolutely loving shorts this year, so I couldn’t be happier. This is an old pair from BR that are borderline too big for me now, but I’ve been wearing them like crazy. They’re more of a boyfriend fit these days and so comfy. I love pairing them with dressy blouses and heels for a dressed up yet casual look. I’m also thrilled to share this gorgeous watch with you from Shore Projects. They’re a UK company that’s just gotten picked up by Nordstrom stores across the country. Their beautiful watches are simple and sophisticated and come in a variety of finishes and band styles. I fell in love with the rose gold of the ‘Salcombe’ Project 2 watch with this beautiful cognac suede strap. I also love this polka dotted version, and this mesh version. Plus, it matches my new (to me) PS1 handbag perfectly. All of their watches come in pristine, pretty packaging matching their beach theme. Seriously, it was like Christmas morning when I opened the box. I’ve been wearing this watch non-stop!

Oh, ladies. I’ve been in my apartment 3 years now, which kind of signifies 3 years of living this awesome era in my life. I’m happier than ever and although stressed and busy, I’m so thankful for every little great thing that I have. I guess I ‘m a little mushy this time of year. Blame it on spring. #reflecting
