grey skies are gonna clear up, put on a happy face...

Blah. Meh. Ugh. Woof.

I mean, am I right, Seattle? Has this spring not just been completely underwhelming? And grey? And sort of cold? I would say so. I've spent many a rainy afternoon lamenting the hot, sun-drenched days of Spring 2009. I can't even comprehend that here we are at Memorial Day weekend - the official kick-off of Summer - and it's gloomy. Fortunately, the forecast is looking slightly optimistic for Sunday and Monday, so here are a few sunny tidbits to put you in the mood...

1. Pick up a copy of the June J. Crew catalog. As usual, it's amazing and inspiring and full of perfectly-paired outfits in perfectly summer-y settings.

2. This Jak & Jil post is just gorgeous.

3. This Shopbop Lookbook of 'Insider Favorites' from stylist Nicole Chavez is the perfect mix of pieces to covet for when the sun actually decides to shine.

4. HG Lodge roof deck. DJs, happy hour, sunsets, socializing.

5. Oddfellows outdoor drinking. I hear rumors its happening. This excites me.

6. Tequila & grapefruit juice over ice. I call it the Mexican Greyhound. It's like sunshine in a tumbler. It was the B2B opening drink, and it made that first be-costumed sip at 6:45 a.m. rather pleasant.

7. It's the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale!

8. Folklife Festival is also this weekend!

  1. I object to number 4. As you already know, on Friday HG Lodge swallowed up my wallet, my voice, and my...well that's all. HG Lodge is in the doghouse.
