Forever 21 top, Urban Outfitters cardigan, Crossroads Trading skirt, Target shoes 

I've been waiting and waiting and waiting for the day when I could break this cardigan back out. It's a super light weight cardigan only for the warmest of Spring days.

Thank you to Chelsea for the beautifully edited photos!

Happy Monday!

Food Photos: My Favorite

I've been cooking a lot more as I've been reading some great food blogs. My two favorites for quite some time have been Smitten Kitchen and Edible Perspective.

   I've been enjoying having my sister's camera around so much to expiriment with! Food photography is always fun. 

This grilled pizza recipe was a collaboration of three different recipes. The pizza dough was AMAZING thanks to Smitten Kitchen, the sauce was a very simple recipe with tomato paste, tomato sause, oregano, garlic, and paprika (any pizza sause would work though), and I just threw together some Greek inspired toppings; mozzarella, feta cheese, olives, and diced tomatos. I cooked the pizza on a stove top grill pan as I don't know how to start the actual grill up. This pizza was amazing! I'm so pleased with how it turned out!

I hope you enjoyed this photography/ recipe post!

Joy Jumping

 thrifted top, American Apparel skirt, F21 sweater, Target boots

This outfit is basically all of my favorite pieces of the moment, put together. This skirt is the most recent addition. I wore it three times within the first week I bought it though I only posted it once. I am constantly throwing on this cozy sweater whenever I'm feeling a little chilled. It's a perfect layering piece! ( I also wore it here and here) Surprisingly these boots go with anything. I was a little skeptical of the color when I first purchased them but they have turned into one of my most succesful buys! (here and here) Lastly, the lace top. I love the high neckline of this! It's ideal for layering!

Goodness this post is getting linky! I wish everyone a happy day and hope you enjoy the juming shots Chelsea and I attempted!

Seattle Snapshots

All of these photos were taken from behind car windows. It was a glorious day until we were on our way home. Even still, the rain drops on the space needle photos add an important element of Seattle.  

I always enjoy driving on the floating bridge! I love that you can see the buoys floating in this photo. 

Starbucks Headquarters. YUM!

All the old buildings, the history, and the architecture is AMAZING! I love reading the signs of the stores that used to be there. Ahh glorious, glorious Seattle!

Yellow Light

 American Rag top, Pac Sun jeans, thrifted wedges
Last year, while on a family drive one Sunday afternoon I passed by this daffodil field and said to myself, 'this would be a perfect place for outfit photos.' I never made it back that year so I made a promise to myself to make time for it this year. I love how the sunny yellow brightens up anything. Green and brown farmland, or a dreary room. And surely it brightens up a photoshoot!

When I tried this gold necklace on, something was off. Sometimes things don't turn out the way you pictured and you take it back. However, with this little necklace costing a little over a dollar, I thought maybe I would try and DIY it. I took it off, the chain snapped, and I now had half a necklace. Yup, definitely DIYing it now! (gotta love F21 jewlery quality!) I took the chain from a necklace I don't wear anymore and attatched the new chain and charm using some left over little gold rings. BAM! Completely unique jewlery! I'm looking forward to trying some new techiques and putting my own spin on some other pieces!

 F21 top, American Apparel skirt, Target oxfords

I was so happy to find this adorable skirt at the latest trip to Goodwill! I've been trying to tear myself away from patterned skirts as I have so many already.
Finally the weather has warmed up! The sun has peaked out these past two days and I've been trying to get in as many springy outfits as I can!
