These days our adventures are a bit limited because of my leg, but there’s one outdoor activity that I can still do: sailing! We especially love to go out on the boat with the dogs during the summer to catch the sunset over the Olympics. When Stella & Chewy’s reached out to share how we go above and beyond for our pups, I knew exactly the stories I wanted to share with you guys.

Recipe // coconut lemonade with lavender simple syrup

It’s been really hot in Seattle. Well, ‘hot’ in PNW terms… Ha. Most homes here don’t have air conditioning here, so I’ve been getting creative with ways to keep cool even when it’s really hot in the house. Frozen drinks have been at the top of the list, especially refreshing lemonade. Recently, I whipped up a really delicious combination of coconut, lemonade, and lavender and I totally had to share it with you guys. Meet your new favorite mid-summer drink!

recipe // minty hibiscus blackberry popsicles for #popsicleweek

Happy #popsicleweek, aka the perfect excuse to share a recipe for one of my favorite summery sweet treats. This popsicle is inspired by a really delicious cocktail we had during our trip to Palm Springs at the Ace Hotel pool. It was hibiscus with a hint of citrus and tequila, garnished with mint and I loved it. We joked that it was like adult Kool-aid. The vibrant magenta color was pretty fun, too. So this Minty Hibiscus Blackberry Popsicle is my answer to that drink, but with the addition of my favorite berry flavor, blackberries!

I’m not gonna lie, having a broken leg and wearing an unsightly air boot is really cramping my sartorial senses. This summer has found me living in t-shirt dresses, with the occasional pair of cut offs thrown into the mix. The look is pretty basic and I’m very over it, especially after discovering these gorgeous pieces from DÔEN. This is the vibe that I want to be my everyday style: vintage, chic, babelicious, and reminiscent of the western prairie.

If your bathroom is anything like mine, it’s pretty small and lacking any real form of storage. Having a small bathroom can inspire you to get creative though — and it’s all about figuring out which tools are best to help you get organized. I’ve tried countless different configurations and methods for squeezing out every last bit of storage in my small bathroom and wanted to share a ton of amazing pieces I’ve found in the process.

the friday edit

Happy summer, you guys! I’ve heard in other parts of the country it is actually summer… but in Seattle warm days are sort of new to us this week. They’ve finally arrived and I couldn’t be happier about absorbing some extra rays and working on my freckle collection. This week brought about a few updates with my broken leg situation, specifically that I can finally start bearing some weight on the leg and can begin physical therapy. I’ve heard that this will be the hardest part, but honestly I’m just glad to finally feel like I have some control over the matter. I still have a lot of healing ahead of me, but it feels good to know I’m on track.

Here’s some stuff that is inspiring me lately…
