Good Morning and Happy Summer! I know it has been a few months since I last posted, BUT I’m BACK and have some great inspirational pieces to share with you in the weeks to come! In the last month, I have moved from the beautiful San San Francisco area to the beautiful Evergreen Seattle, Washington. This particular piece was taken before I left, as I looked out, taking in the last moments  I had in the Bay Area. 

Since being in Seattle, I have came across numerous coffee shops [ & Yummy Cappuccinos} that I am stoked to be able to share with you! 

The past few months I have been all about spicing up my wardrobe with prints and patterns! Whether its a causal t-shirt/tank day or a fun Friday night out, you’ll always see me with some sort of interesting pattern. I love pairing my patterns with a soft color, to make the outfit not too overbearing but still popping! If you wondering where to find some great patterns, my favorite store, ZARA, has some fabulous finds! In fact this whole outfit is a ZARA find! So, as you enjoy the rest of your glorious Saturday Summer afternoon, you can be on the look out for some fun prints and patterns! Keep checking back in, as I will be posting some of my favorite coffee shops in the Seattle area 🙂

Peace & Bessings

Sideboard Is Open! Hooray!!!

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

So… if you haven’t heard yet, my favorite local coffee shop is open! SIDEBOARD. Todays shoot took place inside the walls of this casual, comfy atmosphere. As I sipped on a nice glass of Blue Bottle Coffee, my photographer, Harry Glazier did an iphone only shoot of me.

As Spring kicks into full gear and with Summer around the corner, dresses and cool clothes are being pulled into the wardrobe of mine. This outfit piece, is perfect for a comfy day at your local coffee shop! Whether your meeting a friend for coffee/ lunch, working on homework, or having quiet time (BIble and journal on hand), a cotton dress is a must! It is just so COMFY. Having a light wash cotton dress is great for all seasons! During winter time, I throw on with this dress some tights, boots, and a burnt orange scarf. And now that its spring time, I just throw on about any light color or patterned scarf, with some long necklaces stacked underneath, and sandals. If you want to accessorize even more (which I often do) rings are the perfect touch!

Make sure to check out the new Sideboard location!

Woohoo! I am so happy its Friday! AND its Spring!!! Suns out, Colors Out! Feeling pretty matchy matchy with my shoes and top, but luckily my favorite pair of jeans ( my lovely cords) bring it all together! It was a bit windier today, so ponytail it was. Whenever I throw my hair up though I always have to top it off with some kind of FUN hair headband.  As you step into this new Spring season, I challenge you todo something FUN! Whether its this weekend or the upcoming week, have some fun and go to the beach, soak up those rays, and be in awe of how magnificent God’s creations are!

Love Ya!

I like Unicorns.

So for all you who didn’t know I am a BIG fan of Unicorns. They are just so fun and spunky! If I could be any animal it would definitely be a Unicorn. When I got this shirt over summer I knew it was pretty ridiculous yet I LOVED IT. The funny thing is, the other day when I walked into Forever 21 I saw that they had Unicorn apparel! I was a little stoked…Maybe A LOT. I know it may be a little crazy, but BE the FIRST to rep Unicorns in your neighborhood, school, or local coffee shop. I dare you:)

“Spring” Into Your Weekend

ImageImageImageImageIMG_8584

Hope you guys have enjoyed the past couple of sunny days! I know I have for sure! Stoked to be able to pull out one of my favorite colors. Coral. I love being able to pair it with this army green vest as we are in this transitional season.  But to be personally honest I wear army green in all seasons. Im fine and dandy with doing so, as long as I pair it with a bit of brighter colors in the Spring and darker colors in the Fall! We might be having some raining/ cloudy days in the near future… But before that comes, “Spring” into this nice sunny weekend with some of your favorite Fall and Spring colors!

Happy Friday Everyone! Goodness, I’m still loving this foggy weather! Todays outfit had a lot going on but its always fun to throw some spunk on at the end of your week! Sometimes you just have to throw on zig-zags, plaid, stars, stripes, a smiley face, and while your at it, bring a horse along with you! Just kidding the horse just wanted to have his picture taken too:) I encourage you to go into this weekend and CLASH something! It can be as small as clashing your gold and silver jewelry or as crazy as me, with all my funky patterns! 

Have Fun This Weekend and CLASH~

The “Swoosh” Up.

Happy Friday Everyone! Sorry it’s been a few weeks but I have been “Swooshing” it up with my style lately. I think I have caught a NIKE FEVER or something. When I was in Miami a few weeks ago I came across these amazing Tiffany Blue Nike Wedges or what I’d like to call my Disco Shoes. I found them at a store called “UNKNWN”, which you all need to check out online. This whole look is based on my time walking through this modern lifestyle store. It’s always fun for me to brighten or pop my outfit with a fun article of clothing and/or accessory. So this time I chose to be BOLD and go with my funky Disco Shoes. I encourage you to BE BOLD not only with your outfits but with YOU! Walk The Walk In Boldness.
