Perfect Summer Dress

Four day weekend here we come! Who else is excited for the holiday weekend?! Normally we will try to rent a cabin in the mountains somewhere, or get an airbnb outside of the city, but this year we are staying put. I honestly couldn’t be more excited! In my last post, I talked a little about stress and how a busy schedule has been the norm lately. I am very much looking forward to a long, free weekend! I can’t wait to have time to do laundry, go grocery shopping, and start binging on the new season of Orange is the New Black!

I will most likely take some time to throw together my favorite 4th of July dessert – Angel Food Trifle! Every year I look forward to this dessert and I end up eating half of it myself. It is such an easy dessert and is seriously SO delicious! (AND FESTIVE!) I will post the recipe here next week so you can throw it together for your 4th of July celebrations if you feel so inclined 🙂

What are your 4th of July weekend plans?! What do you like to do on weekends where you have NO plans?! I am open for suggestions!! 🙂

Luckily, the Seattle Summer has officially kicked off! Here in Seattle, the 5th of July marks the first day of Summer. It is a funny rule of thumb, but it is seriously the truth! Last weekend it was 95 degrees. I gathered all of my sundresses and moved them right to the front of my closet! This Kittsona dress is perfect for this unusually HOT weather here in Seattle– I will be LIVING in this dress all summer. The material is so light, and the back is giving me all the heart eyes 🙂

    This dress is amazing. It’s just beautiful, elegant yet simple. I think the back is my favorite part.

    I love how flowy and light that dress is. And it can easy be dressed up for date night with a jacket. Love it!
