This skirt -- which was once a much more flapper-esque drop-waist dress -- is lovely, but difficult to style with other items in my wardrobe. It's so pale, delicate, ethereal. I love the way the breton-stripe top grounds it a bit, referencing the historical feeling while also being sharply modern. I do love to pair this skirt with these great mary jane shoes, too; they're just the perfect color combination.
For our final day of vacation, Erin and I spent a very enjoyable and interesting time on the USS Turner Joy, a former Vietnam War battleship that is now a museum. Paddington had a grand time, I assure you.
On our second vacation day, Erin and I took the ferry from the peninsula over to Seattle, and did a bit of touristing. Hilariously, we both dressed in our country finest for the adventure -- there were plaid and boots and suspenders galore.
Erin, Mom, and I went on a minibreak last weekend to Seattle and the Olympic Peninsula, where it was a gorgeous, breezy, sunny 80 degrees and perfect weather for some bright summer clothes to go with my new bright summer hair.
I actually wore this weeks ago, before it became a consistent 90-100 degrees every day. It feels quite classy and fun at the same time; a classic combo of cigarette pants + flats + sweater made spunky by the hot pink and dolmen sleeve.
