My Floral Dress Crush

Beautiful Hood Canal at Port Townsend  Sweet treat down by the Sea in Port Gamble Happy Wednesday almost over the hump again!   Today I wanted to share this gorgeous floral print dress I found at Ross. I am so in love with the bold colors and striking combination of  leopard with the flowers.  This style conforms so well to the curves of your body, and is honestly one of the most comfortable dresses I have ever worn.   The fabric is neoprene, fashion's latest and greatest it! I adore the cute cut outs on the side, they add classy edge without being too revealing.   A great way to add a little air conditioning when it's really hot!  A black bandeau fits perfectly under this dress and offers a striking contrast to the busy print.  The best part of this dress was the amazing price,$12.97 is my kind of deal. The setting for these photos were in two different spots on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula, a few hours west o

Enter at your own risk, not for those who have a weak stomach! Good Friday morning! If you ever make a trip to Seattle, you definitely don't want to miss out on this iconic spot in the heart of the Emerald City.  I have lived in the Puget Sound area for 29 years, and I never get tired of visiting Pike Place Market.  It is rich in history, culture, and has amazing eats! The market was founded in 1907 as a meeting place for farmers and customers.  It is the 33rd most visited tourist attraction in the world, with over 10 million visitors per year. There are an assortment of things to look at and purchase. From hand made accessories, fresh produce and seafood, to the most beautiful flowers you have ever set eyes on!  My favorite thing to do, of course, is to browse the h

6 Must Have Outfits for Spring

Good Morning, how was your weekend?  I hope it was great and filled with all your favorite things, mine definitely was!  I attended Macy's "American Icon " fashion show.  I was so excited to be chosen by the Everywhere Agency as one of the bloggers to cover the event.  It was a great experience and lots of fun!  The host of the show was Courtney Kerr, a style blogger that is traveling the country for Macy's "Got Your Six" Campaign.  Macy's initiated this campaign last year to raise funds to help veterans transition from the military to civilian life. It is a fantastic cause and I was glad to be part of it!  For more information visit . Courtney had a great sense of humor and kept the audience engaged.  She gave away some Macy's gift cards, and believe it or not most of them were won by the males in the audience!  Of course the highlight of the show was seeing all th

  Time to Set Sail!    Photography: Lowell Hansen Ahoy maties!  I thought it would be fun to share some nautical styling since I live in a Navy town. This city is rich in Naval history and has a very strong sense of community.  People here are always ready to help someone in time of need or reach out to newcomers.   It is a great place to raise kids and enjoy fabulous activities such as hiking, boating, fishing, hunting, and scuba diving.  A fun way to travel here is on the ferry from  downtown Seattle.  Watching some of the interesting characters, makes the ride go by real fast! Have you ever been down under on a submarine or for a cruise on a aircraft carrier?  Being cooped up in close quarters like a can of sardines does not sound appealing.  I would love to ride on an aircraft carrier someday, I did get to tour one. I hope spring is all smooth sailing for you! If you have ever lived in a military town , it would be great
