This weekend felt like a complete sunshine filled dream. Jordan and I took a sporadic trip to visit a friend of his in Portland on Friday night and returned late Saturday evening. Though most of Sunday was filled with work and errands I couldn’t help but feel elated in the sunshine. We stopped by Pike Place and Alki Beach for a few treats. I am such a sunshine-lover, my whole life can be falling apart but if the weather is wonderful it really doesn’t phase me (not sure if this is a good thing…). On the flip side, if it’s gray and rainy or worse yet, cold, it doesn’t take much to put me in a funk. Hopefully the Seattle sunshine is here to stay!
Daisies are one of my all time favorite simple pleasures. Store bought daisies aren’t necessarily my flower of choice however when I see daisies growing wild on the side of the highway my heart does cartwheels. Fields of daisies, flower crowns and handpicked daisies will forever pull on my heart strings. I own so many daisy inspired pieces from jewelry to dishes to this cute romper I found at a boutique in Astoria, Oregon a few weeks back. I am just a daisy girl!
Day dreaming in the sunshine is my pastime of choice and a carefree romper is my outfit of choice for whimsical days outdoors. This morning I plan on lounging in the sun (perhaps a field of daisies) and reading a book before really I start my day. I know most people despise waking up earlier than they absolutely have to but I highly recommend making time each morning for a relaxing activity like reading, writing or reflecting. Even just fifteen minutes of a calming, introspective activity helps to set the mood for my entire day. Better yet, set aside fifteen minutes to get some fresh air, a walk outside or eating breakfast on the patio is such a refreshing way to embrace the start of a new day. Hooray for ultimate productivity and positivity!
In other news, Jordan and I just picked up a juicer. After a bit of online research we opted for the a Breville masticating model. Juicing expert I am not, I basically just know that I love pulp…do you have any juicing tips or recipes? I can’t wait to experiment a bit and discover a few fruit and vegetable combinations I love. Fresh squeezed juice is delicious!
I would love to hear about your weekend adventures? What is your go-to outfit for romping around?
