Brighter than a hundred thousand suns

Forever 21 blazer, Kain stripe inset shirt, bow paper bag shorts from Hong Kong boutique, Gap bow flats, Banana Republic suede fringe bag, Chanel ring, Hermès bracelet

Finally broke 80 degrees today! It's been a very late start to summer this year, so we took full advantage of the weather, got coffee and macarons after church at Honore Artisan Bakery, strolled around the Ballard farmers' market nearby, and went to a BBQ for dinner. We also decided it was necessary to visit Full Tilt ice cream not once but twice in one day.. salted caramel on my first visit and then Thai iced tea. Ended the night on a bench by the water feeling happy in the simple warm night breeze, days should really be like this more often, easy.
