Maxi Dress Love.

My whole life I have had the hardest time finding pants, shorts, skirts, dresses etc. that are long enough for me. So obviously I love the maxi dress; super long and need to worry about it being tooooo short :)
I had been on the hunt for the perfect maxi dress for quite sometime and my search finally 
ended upon finding this gem in Leavenworth while my husband and I
were there for our anniversary weekend.
I found this maxi by Lush, in a cute little boutique called JT Blue (who btw has TONS of other cute stuff). The fabric is super comfy, soft, flowy, drapey and I love the neutral color. That was a big thing for me also, neutral most of the maxi dresses I have seen have been pretty bright/colorful.

I paired it with this statement necklace from Anthropologie that I am absolutely in love with and
a pair of Birkenstocks. I Love Birks and I don't care about the bad wrap they get from
Pacific Northwesters wearing them with socks. haha (I don't do that) lol

Speaking of Birkenstocks, upon arriving to Gas Works Park where these photos were taken... we stumbled upon a random hippie jam fest. It was nice to relax together in the warm summer weather,
while listening to chill tunes.

Cutest.kite.ever. OWL!

Listening to the tunes....

House boats! I have wanted to live in one ever since seeing Sleepless in Seattle, when I was a child...

Have a good rest of your week :)
