Upon first spotting this dress by Leah Goren at Anthropologie several months back, I knew that one day it had to be mine. But, being the mostly frugal person I am, waited and hoped that it would be on sale, in my size.....someday. Well it was, $40. Which is crazy cheap for an Anthro dress.
If you know me, I am sort of crazy about cats. Anything having to do with cats makes me super happy, so obviously this dress is quickly becoming one of my faves.
Hopefully some more cat print beauties will be gracing my closet in the near future. :)
Anyways, how is your weekend going?!? Mine has been good thus far! Yesterday the hubs and I headed downtown to take in the sights and sounds of everything Christmas. Checked out an ice rink and super adorable mini Christmas Village, stumbled upon a random mob of about 200+ Santas having a dance party in Westlake Center, and of course, saw all the pretty lights and Christmas trees scattered throughout the area and Pike Place Market. It was wonderful.

How was everyones weekend?! Hopefully super amazing!
Mine was filled with Christmas shopping. One of the few shopping centers I ended up going to, unknown to me, was having a tree lighting ceremony/festival. I obviously have impeccable timing, because I can't really think of a better day to try to accomplish finishing a shopping list than while being distracted by food vendors, Santa Clause, Christmas carolers and lots and lots of baby strollers decorated with flashing red and green lights. Although it was a bit distracting while trying to get gifts, it sure put me even more into the Christmas spirit....to the point where all gifts are bought, wrapped and already under the tree and it is only December 2nd. This doesn't happen for us. Ever.
I feel pretty accomplished..... and can't stop listening to the She & Him Christmas album.
Hope everyone has a great week! OH! and if you haven't already, follow me on instagram @lizziepcth :)
I am still pretty new on there, so I would love to follow you lovelies as well!
So I know that Wishful Wednesday hasn't been as regular lately on this ol' blog as it once was, but this week I am wishing for something far better than clothing items (my usual).
I am wishing for more time hanging out with this little dude...
...my nephew Hazen!! He is the sweetest and most adorable little guy and we can't wait to be his coolest Aunt and Uncle. Remember when my mom and I hosted this baby shower over the summer? Well, it was all for him..and his awesome parents.
Hey! Remember me?! That one girl that used to post at least once a week, on a regular basis? Well, I am back again! I took an unintentional blogging hiatus and hope to be back to my old blogging self.
The past weekends have been booked solid with family, friends and being social in real life.....not on the interwebs. Also, the fact that it gets dark at 4pm now and the weather is generally rainy all the time, really puts a damper on my chances of taking some photos for this ol' blog of mine.
Anyways, I am like seriously obsessed with this dress. Like for real. Call me crazy, but Taylor Swift was actually my inspiration for purchasing a bright, vibrant red dress. I saw her doing an interview on t.v. about a month ago and she was wearing a red dress+red lips and I sort of feel in love with the idea of having my very own said dress. Once I laid eyes on this babe, I knew it was it. OH and the peter pan collar kind of made me hyperventilate in excitement.
Also, now that my hair is long enough and I have bangs, I decided to try wearing my hair in a bun! What do you think? Plus, a peter pan collar just screams to be shown off by having your hair pulled up.
Enough about my self, how are you guys doing??? I miss interacting with all of you lovelies!! Hope you are having a great weekend!!
p.s. I am finally living in 2012 and am now on instagram! Follow me @lizziepcth :)
Oh my, the past few weeks have been so crazy busy for me. At work there was a huge deadline, so I was working large amounts of overtime. Then I was sick last week, which put me out for a good four solid days(ickkk), and then this past week after taking senior photos for my cousin, I was a busy little bee editing them every night after work. Phew! Luckily, the last item that kept me busy was quite fun! The photos turned out great and boy have I sure missed working in Photoshop.
Anyways, I am sort of in love with all the above pieces. I definitely need to get my hands on a polka dot sweater this year! Last year I never got around to it on my limited clothing budget. And although I am not much of a heel wearer, those t-straps are too cute.
What are your current fall favorites?!
I hope you all have a great weekend! I will be catching up with two friends that coincidently happen to be in town at the same time. Two friends that I met when living in Texas and we used to all hang out together too. It shall be fun :)
Photo overload, I know....but all the beautiful fall colors left it so hard to pick just a few and the fact that I am sort of obsessed with this outfit didn't help either. In my last post, I had mentioned that I finally purchased the burgundy pants from H&M that I had been lusting over.....well here they are. I have been spotting these pants all over the blogosphere and just had to get my hands on some. I didn't know it was possible to have this much love for a pair of pants. So much in fact, that they didn't even have my correct size, so I opted to buy a size too large, because I wanted them that much. haha
I loved the idea of pairing the burgundy with soft pink and lace, faux leather and of course a little vintage flare with the cameo necklace.
It was my sweet hubs Birthday yesterday!! We started out the day with a yummy birthday breakfast of Spiced Pumpkin Pancakes, then later we hung out with some of his close friends and went to our favorite Thai place in our favorite neighborhood (Capitol Hill). After we ate, we all went for a nice walk around around the neighborhood and popped into a few shops. We then all headed back to our place, where we had mini chocolate cupcakes, the guys played video games and I discovered my love for hard cider! haha
Specifically Samuel Smith's Organice Cider. So delish. I totally have a new favorite drink.
Not sure why I had never tried hard ciders before, boy was I missing out! :)
Also, remember back when I hosted the baby shower a few months ago for my brother and his wife?! Well they had their baby boy today!! So happy for them and can't wait to meet the precious little guy. So excited to be his Aunt Lizzie!!
What did you guys do this weekend?! I hope it was great, whatever it was!
Well, Boho-esque blouse....but that title just didn't sound as good.
This blouse has been one of my go-to tops lately. I sort of love everything about it.
So, how has everybody's weekend been?!? I hope it has been just wonderful. Mine has been pretty low key; I finally got the burgundy pants from H&M I have been lusting over. So. Happy. Can't wait to style those babies.
It has been so unseasonably nice and warm here in the Seattle area lately. Like in the 70s. Which if you have ever been to Seattle in October, you know it's odd, because the standard is 50 degrees with rain. So weird, but obviously super nice. I don't mind having an extended summer at all :)
Despite the summer-ish weather, I have fully submerged myself into all things Fall.
This morning the hubs and I had Pumpkin Spice Pancakes and Apple Cider for breakfast and I made my first soup of the season last week. YUM.
I had an idea for an outfit I was going to to wear today, but upon getting a surprise package in the mail containing this amazingly adorable dress, made by my super sweet sister-in-law(my brother helped a little too, hehe), that idea quickly went out the window. She knows me toooo well, I tell ya! Neutral, Oatmeal colored top, light blue bottom with vintage style flowers which are the perfect color and delicate vintage lace trim. Tank dress perfection.
So, how is everyones weekend so far?! Great, I hope! Mine has been pretty relaxed, which is always nice. The hubs and I went on a nice walk to the location these photos were taken. The early fall air felt sooo good and a few trees leaves were already changing color! And then I picked up a few more pairs of thick, opaque tights....something you can never have enough of :)
