Breathing underwater

Yesterday felt like summer in Seattle! It was almost 30°C (still working on imperial conversions…) which meant an obligatory trip to the beach! There’s nothing quite like sitting on the giant rocks, listening to the water, while enjoying the biggest cup of bubble tea on a sunny day.

The discovery of the in-box Cinemagraph app on my phone (Nokia Lumia 920) was pretty awesome too.


Ending an errand-filled afternoon with a trip to the beach was exactly the thing that I needed to unwind after a long day of scouring the shelves of Hallmark and Target for the perfect Mother’s Day card. Speaking of Mother’s Day (don’t forget, it’s next week!), I’m teaming up with Sperry Top-Sider to style the blue Seersucker leather strap with Crab dial watch, which is part of their new line of women’s accessories that I think would be perfect for gifting on Mother’s Day. You can check out the whole collection on Sperry Top-Sider, Macy’s, or Dillard’s.

outfit details:
dress: eBay
belt & purse: Forever 21
boat shoe flats: Docker’s
watch: c/o Sperry Top-Sider (exact)

While playing around on the driftwood, I somehow managed to get a splinter (don’t click if you’re squirmish!). It’s so easy to forget what it’s like to be a kid again, climbing on rocks and jumping from log to log. ;)


What did you get up to this weekend? Did you get a chance to soak up some sun too?
