One of the things I have been focusing on during my one week social media break (which quickly turned into two weeks 😉 is being more intentional with my content. This has lead me to also focus on being more intentional with my words and actions outside of my blog. With a more intentional approach to life, I would like to reduce the amount of times I utter the word “Sorry”.
Gift Guide – Seattle Shops
Shopping small is SO important and so fun! I love supporting local businesses and brands and building relationships with local shop owners. I decided to create a gift guide that highlighted some of my favorite goodies from some of my favorite Seattle shops. All of these items are available online so anyone, anywhere can buy them and still shop small 🙂
Self Love with a side of Azul
I hope, through my words and images, I can inspire at least one person to love theirself a little more and take a chance on their dreams.
Transitioning to Fall with Zappos
Fall is almost here! As the temperature starts so cool, I find myself already missing the warm weather. There is just something so satisfying about the ease of throwing on your outfit and not having to worry about grabbing a jacket for the day. However, as I walk around Seattle, and see the leaves begin to change and fall, and as I start to hear them crunch under my loafers, I can’t help but get antsy for the upcoming season. Pumpkin patches, apple picking, corn mazes, pies, chai lattes, and the chunkiest sweaters you’ve ever seen – I will miss the warm weather, but I am all too eager to wave goodbye to Summer and jump into Fall!
I LOVE THE 90’s. I was born in 1990 and still haven’t left. It will be tough to find someone who rivals my obsession with everything 90’s! I am so happy that fashion from the decade is making a full comeback, but this time it seems to be bigger and better than ever! (WHERE’S MY LISA FRANK TRAPPER KEEPER?!)
I used to be a big fan of black wardrobe pieces. My whole closet used to be primarily black sweaters, pants, and blouses. Since graduating college, I tried to expand my wardrobe into color, and quickly became obsessed with navy, tan, and oranges / yellows. No matter how many colors I introduce into my closet, my heart will always lean back to my monochromatic wardrobe.
Nordstrom Sale: My Picks
One of the best sales of the year is finally upon us – The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! As a Nordstrom card holder you can access the sale right now! The rest of the public can access the sale starting on the 21st. I have picked out my favorites from the sale this year, including the Blank NYC leather jacket above! Shop all of my favorites below and let you know what you think. I would love to know what you buy!
I have become a big fan of layering since it is rarely warm enough in Seattle at this time of year to wear a dress without SOMETHING under it. I stocked up on these plain bodysuits from Gap to wear under tanks and dresses and wear with maxi skirts. This became the perfect base for my new fav jumper! This Topshop jumper is so soft and lightweight, but the velvety material also make it perfect for cooler weather. I am looking forward to pairing this with a long sleeve tee as soon as Seattle gets cooler again!
