YAY I’m back with a new outfit! I know that February has been a bit of a fail on the blog, and I apologize as I have been massively busy this month. I promise to make the rest of February and from March on perfection and blogging up a storm :) ps did anyone else think of Rick Ross’ “Snacks on snacks on snacks” when they saw the title of this blog post? Because for some reason that came to my mind when I was creating it. Anyways, moving on…
Do you like this pose? I stole it from one of my blogging girl crushes, Aimee from Song of Style. She always wears jackets and slings them over her shoulders and it just looks so cool and effortless. Thus, I tried. (I saw Kady Herron wearing army pants and flip flops so I bought army pants and flip flops).
I put myself on a ban for January and February not allowing myself to purchase any clothing, makeup, hair products, jewelry, shoes…anything. Well, clearly I failed because I purchased this dress from the new Prabal Gurung for Target collection (along with a pair of shoes…). I saw it, and knew it was the perfect dress to wear this summer on a casual day, to a backyard wedding, to a garden party, to happy hour, or to work. I love all of the bright colors and the way that it fades from opaque floral to minimal flowers around the bottom. You will see my shoes in a post next week.
These photos were taken at the Ballard Locks inside one of the garden areas. I love Ballard (the neighborhood in the city where I was born and raised) because there is so much to do there. You can have lunch or a bonfire at the beach, walk around the locks, check out several boutiques, restaurants, and salons in “downtown ballard”, and there is also the library, movie theatre, and plenty of coffee. You can go rock climbing, thrift shopping, and so much more.
I loved wearing this floral dress with this floral purse. I thought the mixing of prints and colors was a fun contrast, but still went well together. My bracelets were also a fun contrast with the aurora borealis stone side-by-side the railroad nail cuff.
Spending my sunday having brunch, walking around Pike Place Market, picking up my bridesmaid’s dress (I’m in a wedding next weekend!), and watching the Oscars (obvi). Tweet with me if you’re watching too. See you tomorrow for another brand new outfit, have a wonderful Sunday. xo
