My husband and I moved at the end of May. We are still in Seattle but closer to downtown. The neighborhood is stunning and very walkable. We even have a farmers market outside our door!
In Other News:
I went to Seattle Fashion Week at the Emerald City Trapeze Arts. I never do anything fun in the city so this was a bit outside of my comfort zone. I was surprised to see so many fashion obsessed folks in one space.
Before the show I met up with Kelly from Sweet Kelly Anne. She invited me to the show. It was our first time meeting. We were introduced to each other by a mutual friend. We had dinner at Fonda La Catrina and hit it off immediately. I can’t wait for our next meet up.
Last week I had dinner with Camilla from Avenue Camilla. She isn’t blogging anymore, but do check out her amazing Instagram account (updated daily). Camilla is so personable and fun. I felt inspired after meeting with her.
I wore this dress to Seattle Fashion Week. It’s an oldie but goodie. I love the silk fabric and the polka dot print. The cinch waist is much needed and provides a flattering silhouette. The shoes are my go-to for weddings and events and are perfect for a night out on the town.
It’s good to back. See you Thursday!
Of course it’s from J Crew. Haha! Looking adorable!
love love love! Hope your move wasn’t too stressful! 🙂
Thanks Dee. It went pretty smooth.

This is such a darling dress Asa, love the polka dotted print! Ah when I was in Seattle I didn’t blog so now I’m sad I missed out on Fashion Week, did you have a good time? I miss downtown Seattle a lot, used to hang out a lot in Belltown and Queen Anne, the majestic view is what I miss the most! 🙂 xo~ Lena
Did you live in Seattle or just visit? Seattle Fashion week was just ok, I hope that next year will be better. Belltown and Queen Anne are both fun.
Happy Wednesday, lovely! YOU look incredible! Seriously love stopping by your blog!
I truly hope this day is as beautiful as you are, stunning lady!
Sending you much love!!!
Aww, thanks Vanessa. You always leave such nice comments. Thank you!
Asa, you are too cute! I love this dress on you. The polka dots are perfection and the necklace is such a great touch!
Thank you for the kind words Alecz! They mean so much. 🙂
You look great Asa! I’m glad that the move went well!
Thanks MaRae! I appreciate the kind words.
How’s everything going with you? Will you be blogging anytime soon? Hope all is well.
I am so glad all went well! 😀 xx

I love your dress, it’s very girly it’s something that I would wear. 🙂
New Follower over here,
Thanks Sophie. You’re so sweet. I appreciate the comment and follow. 🙂
No worries. You’re so thoughtful. Sounds like a fun weekend. What color did you paint your mom’s living room?
That makes sense. It’s a bummer that you felt that that way with instagram. Your blog and photography is stunning. The true followers will come organically. Good for you though, for overcoming the likes/follower thing. I find that the wordpress platform can be challenging in that way too. It’s easy to get caught up. With instagram I just feel bored and have trouble staying engaged. I recently did a clean out of who I followed and that has helped a little. I am now thinking about creating a separate account for my blog because I haven’t told many people about it. It would be nice if I could post blog related stuff on instagram. Happy Monday. Have a good week! 🙂
