Decorating My Dwelling

I moved into my first "adult" apartment about 7 months ago.  Previous to this I had always had roommates and never had a full place to decorate to my liking. It has slowly but surely been coming together and starting to look like my home. Maybe I'll be finished by the time I move out.

Yesterday this beautiful new addition was waiting for me at my door step.

I have a "slight" obsession with everything West Elm... I actually don't allow myself to walk into their store alone. Luckily they pretty regularly have spectacular sales and I picked this up for 20% off.  I had been searching hard for the past 7 months for a rug that wasn't plain and boring but a pattern was proving to be so difficult with my bold, colorful ottoman.  This small natural/ivory pattern was the perfect solution!

How do you feel about pattern on pattern?  I'm still getting used to it.

Weekend Wrap Up

Weekends are definitely when my good eating habits go out the door. This happens for 2 main reasons. 

1. Sheer laziness

2. What I was busy doing (read:drinking) the night before.  

This weekend I took it easy and it showed. 

A relaxing Saturday morning start

Juicing up during a Sunday stroll
shoes: Sperry's - here pants: Gap - here 
watch: Michael Kors - here

New favorite treat: Juicebox Seattle. If you haven't heard about it, read about it here, here, and here. Then do yourself a favor & go check it out! I got to enjoy the Tropical Green and added a shot of Ginger.

1st Time For Everything

I daily look at fashion lifestyle blogs from all over but have struggled to find one that completely relates to the Seattle Life.

 This is going to be my attempt at showing my personal style and things I love about life.
