There's only about 2 weeks of summer left until it is officially fall. However, Seattle has already begun to embrace the fall weather but I don't mind it. I'm excited for this next season. I have a big post coming up next with some fall goodies I found on my thrifting adventure this past Monday. But before I jump ahead of myself I wanted to do one last farewell post to summer. These are photo's I've collected over the past month and I've finally come around to posting them. The outfit above was one of my favorite summer choices this year. The jacket, hat and shoes are all thrifted while the blouse and shirt are items I scored in the sale section at Urban Outfitters for $10! The kitty brooch is a gem I found at the Fremont Flea Market in Seattle. It even has a little bell that rings when I walk. Even though summer seemed to come and go within seconds I really enjoyed myself and feel satisfied enough to welcome in the next season.












Day trip to Olympia, WA:






We were amused by their 'produce happy hour' special. I wish more grocery stores would catch on to this idea!






One of my favorite pass times this summer (actually all the time)-eating cheese!
My mom and I have been spoiling ourselves with yummy cheese and champagne all summer. In the picture above starting from the left in the back is a goat gouda, to the right is San Andreas Bellwether and the middle one is a Valezan Beaufort

My friend, one set-back that Canada has is our 200% liquor tax. I nearly lost my mind when I was in Oregon and bought peach champagne at a convenience store for $6. Almost went looloo.

That's so exciting about you moving, though!!! I actually just moved to Vancouver Island because I go to the University of Victoria but I am back on the mainland and in Vancouver as much as possible.

E-mail me so we can exchange numbers when you get here - or even before! :]

P.S. That peach blazer is exquisite. Not unlike $6 peach champagne.

Oh man! Such an amazing post! The palette is so pretty, I'm very jealous of that blazer! Same goes for the bathing suit.

As for all the lovely furry friends, also very jealous. I love a cute kitty! Oh and yum yum yum cheese. Basically I like everything about this! I have been reading your blog, but don't think I commented until today. I look forward to more posts!

These are such wonderful and nostalgic photographs. The tones are so soft and make me want to curl up in bed for days on end, just remembering of lovely times. But I am also left with this distinct craving for fresh bread.
Love, Athena. xxx
