Northwest Tropical

Peaked by my last scarf play, I decided to go through my magic bag [of scarves] and see what else I could do with some of the scarves I haven't been wearing...

A few years ago, a friend gave me a beautiful, hand painted scarf/sarong from Hawaii.  I LOVED it buuuut I had no idea what I would do with it.  The brilliant yellow and frosty pink painted flowers... I wasn't sure where it fit.  Until now that is.
 Thankfully, this scarf is huge so it covered all necessary areas to play the part of a dress that evening.  And while I don't find myself in halters much, I did enjoy showing off the plunging neckline I created with wrapping the scarf.  The yellow goes rather well with my coloring so I'm excited to wear it around my neck come Fall.

The weather was absolutely perfect on Monday and Theo and I loved walking up and down Alki Beach.  A perfect reprieve from a stressful day at work as everyone is now rushing around tying up loose ends before our awards show and industry showcase in Vegas.  I am a last-minute packer and even though I have quite a knack for it, I have never needed so many dresses and shoes for a trip before now.  Vegas for 8 days...yikes!  Talk about overkill.  But I can't wait to wear a couple new dresses I bought just for the occasion aaaand - I'm bringing the camera along to share the experience!
