Striped Day

I adore this dress.  I picked it up  last month and have worn it quite a few times.  It is terribly comfy and so easy to wear.  I think the pattern of the stripes  makes the dress interesting and flattering.  I initially went into the store to get the white and black version, but when I saw that the navy version had mint stripes, I quickly changed my mind.

I hope you guys are having a great weekend!  Today was a little hectic, but I got a lot of things checked off the list.  I am planning a very quiet, relaxing day for tomorrow (starting with a massage:).  

Dress:  Anthropologie Striped Day Dress

Lazy day at the beach

I hope you guys are having a great week!  Did you find anything good at the Anthropologie tag sale?  Unfortunately, I couldn't make it to the store because of my crazy work schedule and by the time I got online, everything I was interested in had sold out.  Oh well, I don't usually find much during the summer tag sale anyways (winter is a different story!).

Ben and I went to the beach last weekend.  We took Kya along because she LOVES going to the beach.  It's one of her most favorite things:)  She runs, chases birds, plays in the water, and then relaxes on the sand.  Last summer, we stumbled upon a beach on the Oregon coast that is 1) absolutely gorgeous and 2) never crowded  (some days there is not another person in sight).  It has fast become a favorite spot.  We had such a nice day!  If you follow me on instagram, you have already seen these photos.

Hello!  Sorry to be away for so long.  It's been a busy month:)  I have lots to update you on, but let's start with a recent outfit.  I'm so happy it's time to bring out the summer dresses!

Dress:  Anthropologie
Cardigan:  J. Crew Jackie
Shoes:   Chaco
Necklace:  Etsy

I will save some of the bigger updates for later, but here are a few highlights from the past month or so:

I had the pleasure of  seeing the Dalai Lama in person.  He spoke at the Environmental Summit here in Portland.  It has always been a dream of mine to see him in person and it made my heart so happy!  I took the day off work and enjoyed every minute of it.  

I won a $50 gift card to Shabby Apple over at The Dea Diaries.  I never win stuff like this.  So exciting!  I'm thinking of getting one of these dresses (the one on the left is "Eye Candy" and the one on the right is "Papaya Perfection").  Thoughts?

Summer is here!!!!  What more can I say? 

What have you guys been up to?  I can't wait to catch up on blog reading!
