It's been a while. Life with a puppy and new sibling for Yorkie Sam is beautifully rich, full and hectic. I wouldn't have it any other way

Seattle has had its fair share of great Spring and Summer weather. It's been hot, warm, mild and cool, which you will see reflected in the layers and fabrics of these outfits. Sunny, cloudy, and wet.

Fully vaccinated, I am cautiously working with clients in-person again, so extra busy. I am not complaining!

I LOVE Spring and Summer dressing and shopping! My favourite.

I LOVE fluidly tailored outfits. Can't handle too much, or too little structure. The balance is deliberate and I am very fussy about it. My outfits must move and flow, but be tailored in all the right places. Waving to Jonesy, Katerina, Slim Cat and Irina, who feel similarly about their own fluidly tailored outfits!

I LOVE to wear modern classics in unexpected colours and combinations, and remix them with fun-to-me trends.

I LOVE to remix my new and old wardrobe items, and create current combinations. Waving to Tanya!

I walk everywhere, and do errands in all sorts of weather - with doggies in tow. Absolutely no heels. No sandals either. Prefer my feet protected for my urban walking lifestyle. Fashion sneakers and crossbody bag most of the time, but boots, ballet flats and loafers are great too.

My soft edge comes from my hair and eyewear. Waving to Suz! I straightened my hair for a change. I prefer it soft and wavy, but like this too. No more lipstick or tinted moisturizer. I am embracing my uneven skin tone, and natural lip colour - and feel great about it.

I saw a client in fashion sneakers last week, and it was okay. I prefer a dressier shoe for client appointments though. I will see how it goes. I really need to save my feet if I want to continue with my walk everywhere lifestyle. Fashion sneakers are best for my feet.

Three new dresses and all on deep discount! *happy dance*

Trendy white relaxed straight jeans, and a scarf that is a twinset match with the roomy linen shirt.

I take pics downstairs in our loft at the end so that you get a better sense of the colours, since the light is gorgeous down there. Sam and Jo joined me

Thanks for looking xo

p.s. VERY into patterns on this leg of my style journey.
