dress season.

Hello friends!

With spring quickly creeping up on us, we are finally experiencing all the blooms and…allergies! πŸ™‚ Summer is almost around the corner, but with this season brings so many occasions (whether it be a wedding, prom, formal, etc.. the list goes on and on) to put on that fancy schmancy dress and feel like a Disney princess (Did I mention that Belle was always my favorite? I have yet to see the new movie though).

I don’t know about you, but IΒ always seem to procrastinate ’til the last minute and go crazy trying to find a dress the week before a big occasion.

I was sent a few dresses fromΒ Ever PrettyΒ to try and omg (it is acceptable to talk in acronyms on a blog?).. I fell madly in love!

The prices are all very affordable (all under $100), and they fit so nicely! It’s safe to say..details are definitely on point with these.

Yes, I felt like Cinderella in this dress. It must have been that perfect-pastel-royal shade of blue.

I also felt like I embodied “Spring” in the two pieces. The ironic thing? This is the first year in like 5 years that I do not have a wedding to go to! Someone find me an event to wear these to..and quick!

If you’re looking for me, I’ll be over here playing dress-up by my lonesome… I mean how could you resist?

Hello lovelies,

Another month and another trip! This summer has truly been wedding season for me, which I have thoroughly enjoyed. This time it brought me to the city of Seattle which was my first time EVER there. I have really been wanting to go and visit for quite some time.

Thankfully, the skies were clear the whole time I was there. I’m not a huge rain person so I was crossing my fingers the weeks before hoping that no raindrops would fall. Although the weekend was filled with wedding fun, I was able to visit a few spots that I had been wanting to see.

1. Downtown Seattle/ Pike’s Place. I spent a majority of my time here, and I completely recommend it! It’s filled with the hustle and bustle of shops, businesses, and corporations, but it is also filled with culture and for such a large city I really did not feel too overwhelmed. Pike’s Place is a very well-known spot which definitely reminded me of a larger Fisherman’s Wharf San Francisco. Be sure not to miss the fish throw, which I had only seen on a hometown date from the Bachelor prior to this. No shame guysssss.

2.  Moore’s Coffee. This has got to be my FAVORITE coffee joint in the whole city. Their latte art is phenomenal and the lattes do not cease to amaze. Horchata? Nutella? Mexican Mocha? They got you covered.

3. Of course, the famous gum wall! I have always had a fascination with this place and have been dying to go forever. Apparently when I went they had just cleaned up the walls so I could actually see the brick. What what! Located below Pike’s Place, the famous Post Alley sign is right there as well. 

My friend’s wedding was absolutely gorgeous overlooking the water in downtown Seattle. It was such a beautiful time spent and I’m missing this city already!

Until next time…
