Relaxed weekend


The heat this past weekend was ridiculous. Portland finally broke not only 90 degrees, but 100 degrees as well. Thankfully my parents have a pool, so we headed over there on Saturday with Onyx to have a BBQ and go swimming. (There are some photos of that at the bottom of this post.) We also got to watch Portlander Galen Rupp win the silver medal in the men's 10,000 meter race, which was very exciting! We don't have a TV, so the only chances we've had to watch the Olympics are at other people's houses, or while in the fitness center of our building.

This outfit was actually from Sunday, but it was still crazy hot then, too. The jacket was purely for air-conditioned buildings; I only wore it for about a minute for these photos.




Floral shirt: Marshall's
Pink shorts: Loft
Jean jacket: thrifted from Rerun
Gold sandals: Asos
Sunglasses: Oscar de la Renta from TJ Maxx
Blue earrings and bracelet: B. Lee Designs, gift from my aunt
Gold necklace: Evidence Jewelry, won in a giveaway

Here was my church outfit from Sunday. Our pictures were turning out horribly (that's what you get when you try to take photos at noon on a sunny day, and are forced to take them in the underbrush just so you get some shade), so we gave up, but I salvaged one halfway decent photo to show you guys:


Here are a few fun photos from our Saturday! Onyx had a blast jumping in the pool about a hundred times, eating blueberries off the bush, and harassing my parents' dog Lucy (fourth photo down):

  1. Seems like an excellent weekend. While our temps have been reasonably, even remarkably low (70!) the humidity has been unrelenting. like camera lens fogging the second you walk outside humid.

    I love the floral and striped dress, it's such a unique piece.

  2. Oh that sounds awesome! I can totally relate to the heat too. Yuck! Usually I am all about the summer, but its always around this time that I am all "ALL RIIIIIIIIGHT! That's enough!"

    I love your church dress--so pretty!

  3. What a perfect way to stay cool. We've been spending a ton of time at the lake trying to be the heat but a pool would be so much more convenient (not to mention fun!) I really like the bright colors of your casual floral outfit but they green dress is magic on you. I can't wait to see it in better light! Stay Cool!
