Athleisure for the Win

I’ve always been on board with the athleisure trend and lucky for me it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere any time soon! Being a mom of a very active one year old, it’s important to throw on things that are comfy, stylish, and easy to run in when my child escapes me! HA. I’ve linked my outfit along with a bunch more athleisure gear I’m loving right now!


Keyhole Dress

Someone went to Nordstrom (per usual) and found a stunning summer/date night/vacation dress. It’s the perfect combo of classy with a little sexy. The longer hemline and faux wrap style make it sweet while the keyhole neck line and low back lend a little edge. I wore it in Chelan (since I don’t have a tropical vacation coming up) but I think it would be stunning on the beach during sunset. Swoon. When fall approaches, you don’t have to stash it away in your closet, instead pair it with a black leather jacket.

Weekend in Chelan

You know it’s a good weekend when your hardest decision is deciding whether you should go to the pool or the beach! We traveled over to Chelan to enjoy some quality family time. For those of you who aren’t from Washington, Chelan is a lake town in eastern Washington with stunning views, abundant sunshine, and vineyards around every corner. We spent the weekend swimming in the pool, playing water volleyball at the beach, paddle boarding, getting frozen yogurt, and watching the Seahawks game with the family. A perfect weekend soaking in the last bits of summer.


Je t’aime

I love you. Just like my shirt says. I love each and every one of you. I love you for supporting me. I love you for giving me strength, and reminding me that I can be as successful as I want to be in this business. Life as a blogger can be challenging. A lot more than people may realize. For those of you who have never met me, I am not just a blogger. I am also a wife, a mom, and work a full time job. My husband takes pictures of me after we get off work or during the weekend. Not because he enjoys it, in fact a lot of times it causes arguments because I have a vision and try directing too much. But he does it. He does it because he supports and believes in me. Because he loves me. Like I love all of you.

Weekend Round-Up 8.11.17

Hi friends! I hope everyone had a great weekend!
{SATURDAY} My girlfriend and I ventured downtown to play tourist and check out the new Pike Place Market expansion. I had been wanting to check it out for a while now, but hadn’t gotten around to it. Lame excuse, since it’s only a 4 minute walk from my office downtown, but lets be honest. I usually spend my lunch shopping and eating instead of going down to the market and squeezing my way through tourist. Heck, if it weren’t for a new pink wall mural and the thought of a fresh, warm piroshky I probably wouldn’t have gone this weekend either. None the less, we went, we saw, we found the coveted mural, we ate piroshkies, and most importantly we enjoyed some girl time laughing and catching up.

{SUNDAY} One of many baby milestones took place. I put feelers out on Facebook a while back to see if any of my mama friends had recommendations on where to take Coco for her first haircut. She’s needed one for months now but I kept putting it off. This mama wasn’t ready. I knew it would instantly transform my baby into a little girl, and I wasn’t quite prepared for that. Are we ever? The second the scissors cut those pesky hairs that constantly fell in front of her eyes she became a toddler. Thankfully, she did well and I didn’t cry! I was preparing myself for a possible melt down since she’s in the middle of getting her last few teeth in and (to top it off) had been fighting a nap all afternoon. Bella and Max hair studio are obviously pros though because they sat her in a little pink car and played Moana to distract her and keep her entertained.
