The First Days of Summer

My oh my, does time ever fly by on these sunny summer days! This last week has honestly been a bit of blur. But, a good blur. It was full of dinners with friends, ice cream in the park, strawberries, friends visiting, and a bit of lounging to boot.

My very dear friend Elle, who moved to LA about 10 months ago, came up to Seattle for a very brief visit, and I have to say it was SO good to see her. Elle is one of my best friends and I've been missing her a lot. Even though she was here for just two nights, it was so fun to get to catch up, go out, and bask in some sisterhood! My favorite moment of her visit was sitting around having a drink at a bar with some other lady friends and gabbing about lady stuff (embarrassing middle school period stories, amongst other things!). Once she headed out of town Friday morning, I had every intention of cleaning my house, but decided to give myself a lazy day- it had been a long week!

Saturday, I headed to Puyallup with Katie to go strawberry picking and oh my gosh, it was such a blast! I obviously took a bunch of pictures, so keep your eye out for those later this week. The photos above were taken at a park near the U-Pick farm, and, no surprise here, I wore a somewhat festive outfit for the strawberry picking occasion. 

I picked up this dress at one of my very favorite vintage shops, Trove Vintage, about a week ago and I could not be more in love with it. The color and pattern are too perfect for words and it fits like a dream! It has such a fun, summery feel, and since it's basically the color of strawberries it was perfect for the day. I also wore my new favorite flats, and the pinwheel ring I can't get enough of from Conversation Pieces.

The rest of the weekend involved cooking some food, lying in bed for way too long, and less exciting things like cleaning and doing laundry, BUT all in all, it was a dreamy weekend, perfect for ringing in the first couple days of summer.

What did you guys get up to this weekend?

Follow me on:


  1. It sounds like you had a fantastic time ^_^ I love the colour of your dress, it's so bright and pretty! My weekend was pretty quiet, though we did take the pooch to Liberty State Park for a nice long walk and to look at the flowers :)

  2. That dress is gorgeous! I love the color, the pattern, the hem, the collar...all of it is just really unique and lovely, and it suits you perfectly!

    Your summertime adventures sound lovely. I got to reunite with a faraway friend this past week, too, and it was so fun reminiscing about childhood and adolescent awkwardness, among other things.

    I'm running my very first giveaway on my blog this week, and I'd love for you to check it out :)
