Spring Vibes

Hello World!

While house sitting for a friend this week, I happened to notice that there was a giant rhododendron bush in glorious bloom right outside the front of their house. 
I was just a little ecstatic when my photographer said she would be willing to take this week's fashion pictures in front of it.   
I may or may not have packed a bin full of clothes and shoes to take with me.
And I may or may not have asked her take a ton of pictures of me in different outfits with the amazing rhododendron bush.
Just like I may or may not have Sarah Bareille's song Little Black Dress
playing on repeat while I write up this post.
Who can say? :)

Last year I volunteered to do the face painting at our church's 4th of July party, and I was searching for a sunhat to wear for the hot day, when on a very random visit to the dollar store there was the perfect sunhat.
It has lasted me well, and I still wear it when the sun comes out.

Hello World!

 We went to a museum!
But not just any museum...
 an art museum!
The Frye Art Museum to be exact.
It was inspiring, and beautiful.
Spectacular, and luminous.
This girl is one of my favorites!
She was also awesome, as she was so willing to act as my model for whenever I would randomly want to take a picture of something, but wanted a picturesque face to add to the scenery of a spot.
We decided with my Seattle Grunge and '80's style, and her Folk style we could pass for older Bob Dylan.
Art by Noah Davis and Kahlil Joseph:
Abby's Favorite:
One of my many favorites. 
The galleria where you saw the Frye's original collection of art that they used to display in their house
After the museum we hit it up the road to Gas Works Park to eat lunch and run around.
It was such a beautiful cloudy and windy day, and it felt so good to just run around and fall down in the daisy covered grass completely out of breath
The view from atop a hill.

There was this big cement circle in the middle of the hill that had the position of the sun for the different months of the year.

It also acted like a compass.
Making the descent:
After visiting Gas Works park, we made our way to Theo's Chocolate.
I was turned onto Roald Dahl long ago, and he, still to this day, is one of my all time favorite authors!
He has so much of my love.

Abbie's Souvenir was one of their shirts...
And mine was their very own amazing chocolate.  
After that it was time to go home.
But as we were leaving we made a quick detour...
And said "Hello" to the Troll under the Fremont Bridge.
Abby actually snapped some great shots of me, so I thought I'd share them at the end of this post along with my outfit details.

I'll have to do another fashion post on my dress soon, where it shows more detail. It was actually an old maternity dress of my mom's I chopped. :)
