i've had a love/hate relationship with this blog for a long time.  after a long internal debate i've decided to put this blog officially on the back burner.  maybe i'll feel less guilt and laziness if its not something lingering in the back of my mind.  it is just a blog after all.  haha.  for the few of you that have regularly stopped by and said hello you can still find me over on my tumblr.  

tata for now....

this or that: lace cage gown


or that.....

 i came across this lovely dress by en creme whilst shopping for something to wear to my boyf's little sis' wedding.  so glad i bought it.  super comfy and i felt quite fancy in a gown.  can't wait to wear it with a chunky sweater and boots.  but then cruising runway looks from fashion week i found this number by bcbg max azria.  strking resembalence, no?

outfits: a day at the races

a while back me, the boyf and the fath went to the vintage car races.  i grew up around classic cars and always look forward to a trip to the race track.  in typical seattle fashion, it rained that day.  half the time we had to seek refuge under the vendor tents because a downpour would come out of nowhere.  made for some less than fast racing but an enjoyable time regardless.  however i did bring a jacket with a hood so i was in luck.  

later we had some pints and pizza at airways brewing then stopped at my favorite mexican store for snacks.  they started selling fresh coconut water and it was delicious.  

and yup, this black sweater is in heavy rotation.  boring i know.  but!  i didn't have to wear it this past weekend because it was 90 degrees two whole days in a row.  how spoiled are we.  

sweater ~ zara {similar}

lusting: jenni kayne pre-fall 2012

old habits die hard.  i know i was just saying i'm ready for a wardrobe change then i come across jenni kayne's pre-fall line.  all i have to say is dayum.  any and all are welcome to join my closet.  and yes i'd even wear her infamous flats with socks just like in photo 2.

i don't want summer to end, but i'm starting to get real excited for fall.

shop the collection now.


outfits: walking the dag

i'm a creature of habit.  i like my routines and i get anxious when things don't go according to plan.  fortunately this works out for george since he (and most dogs i assume) like routines.  one thing that george and i do every day after work is go for a long walk.  rain or shine.  doesn't matter we have to do it.  since the sun decides to finally come out around the time we go for walks i've been living in these aerie shorts.  they're so comfy and the more i wear them the more they stretch to that perfect amount of bagginess.  and they have spacious pockets!  key for caring all those puppy treats and poop bags.  nothing worse than getting caught not picking up your pup's poo.  fact's of life people.  life can't be glamorous all the time.  

lets say my rainy day walking gear isn't as fashionable.  i look more like your typical seattleite.  :)

tee ~ vintage via dad
shorts ~ aerie
