Ladylike Summer

Flats-Steve Madden

So, if this dress looks familiar, you got a sneak peek of it here. I love it too much not to let it have its time to shine in a proper outfit post. From the light pretty colors, ladylike length and cap sleeves, adorable little lacy/sheer cutouts on the shoulder and upper back....it is perfect in my book!

How was everyones weekend?! Well, I guess it's Tuesday now...but I have a 4 day weekend this time around...so I am still in weekend mode. We in the Seattle area have had some of the hottest weather all year! It got up in the high 90's, low 100's in some places. Considering people don't really have air conditioning around here, it can get kinda toasty and uncomfy. But, since this girl did live in South Texas for a few years, it wasn't too bad!

We spent Saturday meeting up with my parents in Olympia for lunch and fun times. Sunday the hubs and I went to Seafair and watched the Blue Angels fly above Lake Washington. Soooo cool! If you live in the area or are visiting during Seafair, you have to watch this impressive show! Yesterday and today we have been catching up on some chores, organizing one of our hellish closets and relaxing before I start my new job on Wednesday. Eeeeep! So excited!

Hope you all have a great week!

  13. Anthropologie has some amazing finds!! Wow!

    Loving your blog,

  14. Those cap sleeves are too cute! It's been super hot here in Indiana, too. Thankfully, a storm rolled in yesterday & cooled it down to the 70s (perfect weather in my mind!). I don't mind the rain, but I can say that since we don't get too much here. You, in Seattle, may think differently of it ;)

  15. wow you look lovely here! I especially like the photo with sun exposed next to you (2nd to last) You look so pretty!
