The sun finally came out in Seattle and oh man are we enjoying it! I’ve been suffering through looking at outfit posts from across the country for weeks with girls showing off their bare legs and fun summery frocks only to wallow in our own cloudy darkness. I’ve been lost in winterized clothes for weeks, but today… Today the sun was out and man did I enjoy it. It was a great weekend for sitting in the sun, sitting on patios, generally basking in the glow of the stupendous Seattle sun. Honestly I think we appreciate it more since it eludes us for so many months of the year.

I’ve been loving this dress since I found it buried in the clearance section of Nordstrom Rack a few weeks ago and have worn it with tights and sweaters over top  waiting for the day it could come out in it’s full spring glory. This gorgeous yellow statement necklace was a gift from a truly amazing friend that has helped me survive the last month in ways I can’t fully express. I pulled out my favorite summer wedges and the outfit was made. It felt like those simple summer ensembles that feel done without tons of layers. I find myself dreaming of summer and all of the sun-soaked bliss that’s on the horizon. Hello summer! Come. Soon. Please.
