the perfect 'seasonal' dress

believe it or not, these photos were taken this past
weekend (just outside seattle), and i was warm!
this spring, it is seemingly rare to find a succession of 
warm, dry days -- more often than not, we 
combat the wind, rain, and less than ideal temperatures.

blogging in the pacific northwest is not for the faint
of heart; rain or shine, photos are a requirement.
 it can take a great deal of determination
(and patience) when it comes to scouting locations
to take photos. a clear umbrella is currently on my 
shopping list. additionally, i am trying to curl 
and/or style my hair in a way that can be 
better managed, should it happen to rain on days i am 
taking photos. i have yet to 'master' this, and any tips
are appreciated ;) #bloggerproblems
disclosure: today i'm partnering with endless knot, a local seattle
boutique. they graciously lent me the jumper and t-shirt pictured here.

i have been on a major dress-kick as of late.
i wear dresses most often to work, as they are professional
and convenient. when the alarm goes off at 5:07am, 
putting together an outfit (top, bottom, shoes, and the occasional
accessory) is far too much effort. a dress is an entire
outfit with just one piece. on weekends, i have more time
when it comes to planning what to wear, but to be honest,
i really love dresses! 

this denim jumper is incredibly soft and lightweight.
it will be great transitional piece as the seasons change --
i can pair it with a t-shirt or tank this summer and 
long sleeved tops or blouses in the fall. come autumn, add a 
chunky sweater and tights for a chilly day in the 
office or a weekend brunch with girlfriends. 
i love finding versatile pieces (like this jumper)
when shopping. then i don't have to feel quite
as guilty for spending money, right?
