Finally was a 70-degree day this weekend, first time I bared bare legs probably all year. Something about sun makes the day completely perfect. Boyfriend and I strolled around Pike Place Market (thank God for comfortable 5-inch cork heels.. seemingly contradicting but yeah I said it. Though probably still relatively low on the scale of comfortability if you throw, let’s say, UGGs in the picture) and picked up fresh flowers, local chocolates, and a box of my favorite macarons from Le Panier for his mom’s birthday later. Can’t think of a better ending to that than with an evening celebration of steak dinner, wine and time with his family.

First of many posts of tail skirts/dresses (when the back is longer than the front). Obsessed with that silhouette lately so I picked up a bunch, they’re fun in the wind and flow so beautifully.. but beware of unanticipated Marilyn Monroe moments when sudden gusts swoop under. That’s when my ninja reflexes saved my butt (from overexposure), literally.

    I'm in LOVE with your skirt! That asymmetrical hem is amazing.

    Lovely photos as well. I haven't been to Pike Place in forever.
    Anyway, you're gorgeous, dear!
