How has your Memorial Day weekend been? I hope it’s been wonderful.

I escaped the city to a beautiful place a couple hours from Seattle called the Hood Canal. I’ve been sleeping in, cooking, hot tubbing, doing more sleeping in, got a much needed mani/pedi, played fetch with my dog, Amelia and took part in some really awesome board games. I titled this post la dolce vita for a couple reasons, life out here is incredibly sweet and this weekend when the sun came out I wore my new Dolce Vita dress that I scored at their Seattle sample sale.

Beautiful evening on the Hood Canal

 The perfect setting to relax.

Dolce Vita dress and sandals. Perfect summer outfit.

I love relaxing weekends like this one because I can keep things casual and comfortable, and get away with not wearing any makeup! I’m looking forward to the possibilities this dress holds, it’s been great to wear around the house this weekend with flip flops and I can see myself dressing it up with these heels for nights out with friends later on. For these pictures I threw on my denim boyfriend shirt (it’s on sale!) to stay warm as the sun was setting.

Dolce & Gabbana lipstick.

I also can’t stop wearing my Dolce & Gabbana lipstick (Soiree). The color is pretty and lasts all day long!

This was the dinner scene for Saturday night.

If only we could press rewind and have it be the weekend again! Happy Monday.
