Independence Day Ready

4th of July Outift

HAPPY HAPPY MONDAY!!! I love when Sunday nights don't give you that Sunday night feeling: when you know your work week is about to ramp up again and you start thinking about everything you need to tackle for the week. I know you all know what I'm talking about! It's Monday, but it feels like a Saturday and I am pretty darn excited about it:)

So far, this weekend was spent preparing for our move into our new apartment. We are very sad to be leaving our current place given the view of the Space Needle and the city, but we aren't moving far, and we are moving into a bigger place! Our new apartment is an old building with a lot of gorgeous character. We are so excited to furnish it and get settled! Stay tuned for a post on the current state of our new apartment coming this week. Be sure to check in from time to time as we start to update everything.

Most of yesterday consisted of furniture shopping. We are in the market for a credenza! (If you have any recommendations let me know!) Today will be spent making my FAVORITE Independence Day desserts (recipe will be posted soon), brunching, and soaking up this amazing Seattle sun ;) This is the first 4th of July weekend since moving to Seattle where we don't have set plans. It has honestly been so wonderful being able to catch up on life and take each day of the weekend as it comes! Our schedules have been so packed lately, it is great to wake up and be able to decide what you want to do for the day, even if that means sleeping until 10 and watching the entire new season of Orange is the New Black (that happened. Saturday well spent;) Who doesn't love a good netflix binge?!

SO--What are your weekend plans?!

We will end up somewhere with our close friends on the 4th watching the fireworks and this outfit is SO perfect for this weekend's celebrations! This embroidered top from Kittsona makes for the perfect festive look! I had to get the pops of red with my accessories and lip color of course. Don't mind my shoe flying off in my blooper shot at the end;) HAPPY LONG WEEKEND :D
