Classy Pearls

I've come to realize I've become a girl who absolutely loves to dress up! But I'm going to tell you a secret, I used to hate shopping. Shocking I know! Obviously it couldn't be any more different now and I'm so thankful my personal style has evolved to what it is. I think style is all about what you love to wear and what you feel great wearing. I always feel so much more confident in looks I love especially the fancy ones. Formal outfits are my weakness okay :) 

My new favorite dress is this darling one from Shabby Apple called the Nutcracker dress that I got in blue! It is such an elegant and classy dress and I adore the bow details on the sleeves! I think the bows add a fun touch to this dress! The fit is impeccable which is rare for me as I'm very petite (5"1 to be exact). I am very impressed with the material and just love the royal blue color of the dress! Make sure to check out Shabby Apple for more adorable pieces like this one!

Sleepless in Seattle

Today I'm finally sharing the last day from my trip this summer to Victoria and Seattle. It's so surreal to me that the summer is over and I just finished my 1st week of school as a junior. I'm definitely excited to see what this year has in store for me but I still wish I could go back to relaxing summer days. 

Pikes Place Market is an iconic spot in Seattle so during our last day, my family and I stopped by to see what it was all about. It definitely wasn't what I expected but I'm glad we stopped by. I was in love with all the flowers they had for sale and had to pick some up! The prices were amazing only $5, $10, or $15 for giant bouquets with beautiful flowers. I was so excited to see one with a peony in it (they are my favorite flower), and they are out of season. We also went to a gorgeous park and garden later that day in Tacoma that had the biggest flowers I had ever seen! They were literally the size of my head and so pretty!

Empress

During my trip to Victoria, Canada, my family and I stayed in the darling Fairmont Empress Hotel. It was picture perfect with its elegant Victorian style with flowers and vines galore!  

The final day in Victoria my family and I took a Seaplane around Victoria which was amazing! This was my first time on a smaller airplane which was a really cool experience and my sister even got to sit in the copilot seat. It was so surreal to be watching the pilot flying and landing in water. I think this was definitely a must do and I would love to do this type of thing in other places too! 
My sister and I also had to stop by a Lululemon store since it is a Canadian company. My sister finally talked me into my 1st pair of Lululemon leggings and I'm so glad she did! They are amazing and I will definitely be getting a ton of wear out of them! It also was a bonus that they were slightly less expensive because of the exchange rate. Score! 

Check back soon to see the next part of my trip in Seattle!
