BBQ’s and Mondays

Back in the office today, but had a great weekend enjoying the beautiful Seattle weather! Apparently we broke the record for having 9 days in a row above 80 degrees. It has cooled off today, but I am kind of relieved because our condo gets very hot when it is over 80 here. Most homes in Seattle do not have air conditioning!

Saturday I ran some errands and then had a great time at my friend’s boyfriend’s BBQ. He has been fixing up his new house and it was great to finally see! And my friend Kenzie, (Doug’s girlfriend) kindly made some delicious coconut chicken bites for appetizers because she knows I don’t eat bread – I have some great friends! : )

Here is what I wore – my favorite shorts from Express that I have had for 3 years now, new Old Navy blouse that I got with a coupon (I want this in every color!) and my Target wedges.























And now it is Monday too soon, the weather has cooled off and here is what I wore. I like the contrast of the casual pant with the silky blouse. I picked this blouse up at NY&Co for 40% Labor Day weekend and I love it – so glad I got it in grey too : )

Blouse – NY&Co, Pants – Hudson (similar), Shoes – Payless, Jewelry – Premier Designs

Yep, you were right…I love the blouse from Old Navy AND I REALLY like the one you have on today too! Great catching up with you yesterday. 🙂 Hope you have a great week!


    Yes, lots of fun! Glad you like the blouse!


Looking gorgeous!


Why oh WHY didn’t I buy those wedges when I saw them at Target. Seriously. Kicking myself because they look so awesome on you. Gorgeous as usual, lady! Glad you had a fun (and sunny) weekend!


    I am kicking myself for not getting them in the tan color too! Maybe they will have them again next year… Thanks!

Oh, that’s much better 😉


I really like both blouses and may have to go check them out! I’ll bet the NY&Co. one in grey is gorgeous!


Love the entire outfit but especially the top! You always look so nice and I am a huge fan of your blog!
I recently bought the Loft white/navy dress from Ebay because it looked so good on you.

quick question – is the top navy blue or black? (looks navy on your photo but the black one is online). I have not had any luck with ON tops in a long time but am wiling to try again.


    Thank you! Hope you get as much use out of it as I do! The top in the first picture is black, but there is a navy one available as well. Just to note here, I did have to pin the button hole that is across my bust closed, but that is something I am used to doing – will get a hook put in when I can.


I really enjoy your BBQ outfit. The top has a pretty print and I really like the shape of it. I’m a big fan of tops with curved hems on the bottom, it’s very flattering.
