orca whale lover forever

Years ago, I decided that orca whales were my favorite animal. Thus, when I spotted this mural, it was no question that I had to get a picture with it.

sunflower scarf

I have loved pattern mixing for a while now. And what better patterns to mix than two of my favorites? Polka dots paired with a fun sunflower scarf.

military + floral

[dress: thrift store find; shoes: Target/Mossimo; jacket: Ragstock]

I got this jacket in North Dakota over Thanksgiving break at an adorable store called Ragstock. It's part vintage, part thrift store, and all hipster, haha. I had never heard of it before, and I'm so glad we stumbled upon it! I guess it's kind of a Midwestern chain, with stores in Michigan, North Dakota, and Minnesota. A couple of months ago, I got to go to their store in the Mall of America. 

Loved the pairing of the military jacket and the floral dress---also definitely loving the fact that I can finally wear dresses and bare legs again! It's been a looooong, cold winter in Iowa, but spring is on the way.

polka dots and more polka dots

On Sunday, I just had to wear this new dress I which I had bought on Friday, while in Omaha. It was my birthday and I spent an absolutely lovely day going to the zoo, eating at a cute diner, and discovering an awesome vintage/thrift store that was having a $1 sale! In addition to this dress, I got a comfy sweater and adorable gladiator sandals. A great birthday present to myself!

The polka dots of the dress really wanted to spend some time with the ones on my sweater, so I had to oblige them. I completed the outfit with the flower belt that I inherited last year and my black boots, since it's getting cold this time of year.

summer days

[jacket: hand-me-down from a friend; dress:; shoes: Target; necklace: gift]

These were taken this summer, when I was spending some time in Iowa. There was an utterly lovely period of weather that was so similar to the Seattle area's weather! Upper sixties, slightly cloudy, bits of sunshine, a little rain....yummy. Annnnd then a couple of weeks later it was upper 90s, super humid, and I had to move into an apartment with zero air conditioning. Fun stuff. :P

grey on grey

[shrug: Forever21; shirt/shorts: Old Navy; shoes: Fred Meyer's]

I've had this grey sweatshirt shrug for a couple of years now,  but I haven't worn it very much before. It can be a little hard to wear because of it's unique shape. However, when I saw it lying next to this grey tank, the entire outfit came together quite quickly. :)
