Cat-eye & Sailor Shorts || Hiking & Cigars

IMG_0154

Today will be finally the last of my Seattle/San Juan Islands trip from last month, and I can't believe it's already almost September!  Exploring led us to Lime Kiln - a park with wild animals, rocky cliffs, whale watching, and a beautiful lighthouse.  We climbed down through the trails to find birds, deer, and breathtaking views.  For this kind of trek through nature I wore retro sneakers, cardigan, and striped sailor pinup shorts.  After a peaceful evening outdoors, we enjoyed cigars back at our cabin on our private deck.  San Juan is the perfect place for a relaxing getaway and I already can't wait to go back.  Last night I hosted an event at Agent Provocateur in honor of their new A/W collection, and I'll be sharing with you next week!

Fall Florals || Pollypop & Suicide Roll

IMG_1923

This dark toned floral dress immediately made me think of everything Fall... I can imagine wearing it for dinner parties, evening strolls with hot cider, and picnics among falling gold and orange-colored leaves.  I love the deeper hues for a floral pattern, and the fabric is such a high quality, and medium to thick weight... perfect for transitioning to the cozier season ahead.  For now I'll just enjoy wearing this dress to roll in green grass and sip white wine outdoors.  I'm amazed by Pollypop Boutique and the gorgeous high quality dresses they have to offer.  I know this dress from their beautiful shop definitely won't be my last!

High Society Kittens || Leopard Accents for Date Night

IMG_1738_2

This is my go-to date night dress.  It reminds me of Elizabeth Taylor with it's off-shouler neckline and the dashes of leopard give even more of a nod to old hollywood which I love.  Here I played off the leopard accents with this leopard clutch from 9th & Elm.  9th and Elm has an amazing selection of handmade and independent designs with everything from hand soap to handbags.  The leopard touches make me even more excited for my favorite season approaching!  I have already begun gearing toward Fall by organizing my closet, and I'm starting to select clothes and accessories with Autumn prints and colors.  You'll be seeing them all here very soon!
