THE PERFECT NEUTRAL OUTFIT

BLOUSE: KRISA | DENIM: CITIZENS OF HUMANITY | MULES: SEYCHELLES | BAG: SKAGEN

Happy Friday, friends! I'm keeping today's post short and sweet because I have a lot of packing to do before I head out for a little sunshine. Make sure you are following along on Instagram to see all of my adventures.

How fun is this Krisa blouse? Krisa a new brand that I recently discovered and am completely obsessed with. All of their pieces are neutral classics in luxurious fabrics. This top is especially fun with the flutter sleeves and cut-out shoulders.

THE EDGEWATER HOTEL: SEATTLE, WA

From the moment we walked into the lobby at The Edgewater Hotel for our quick staycation, we were greeted with smiling faces and exceptional service, and it lasted until we stepped out the door the next day. I was initially attracted to The Edgewater for its incredible views, but I will return for the overall amazing experience.

We were lucky enough to enjoy a room overlooking Elliott Bay with a view of Mount Rainier. We live just a few blocks from the hotel, but it felt like we were miles away. Being on the water was so relaxing and peaceful, and I loved watching the boats pass by our window. Our room had a cozy fireplace that I took full advantage of lounging beside it after a hot bath in the CLAWFOOT TUB. The fact that our room had a clawfoot tub took it to a whole other level. The room was so cozy and had a lodge feeling about it that I loved.

After a few hours relaxing in our room we headed down to the hotel's restaurant Six Seven for a delicious dinner. On our first ever trip to Seattle, our friends took us to The Edgewater to show us one of their favorite brunch spots, Six Seven Restaurant. I had been dying to try it out since then and was really excited for dinner. We were so excited to be seated right by the window for the main attraction: the sunset. The sunset was seriously breathtaking! I don't know about y'all, but I just have this thing for sitting by the water, I love it. The ambiance of the restaurant was outstanding and the food and drinks were incredible. I had the filet and ben had the Salmon and both were delicious. My mouth is watering just remembering that delicious cheesecake we shared for dessert! I will be back sometime soon to give their famous brunch a try.

With extremely full bellies, we retreated to our room for the evening and slept soundly in the comfy bed. We were rested, rejuvenated and ready to tackle the week. My vote is that everyone needs a staycation every now and again and The Edgewater Hotel is the perfect place for it.

If you are visiting Seattle for the first time, a stay at The Edgewater Hotel would be the perfect choice. It is the only hotel built right on the water and will give you the true Seattle experience with its convenience to all the major attractions. I couldn't recommend it more.

SPRING TREND: COLD SHOULDER BLOUSES

COLD SHOULDER BLOUSE: WAYF | DENIM: NORDSTROM (ON SALE) | BOOTIES: JACK ROGERS (C/O) | BAG: CHLOE

Now that it is officially Spring, I have begun to pack away the heavy coats and pull out the lighter piece. Being that I live in Seattle and it isn't quite sunshine and 80 degree weather, I have to get creative with the ways I embrace Spring dressing.

I love the cold shoulder trend because it allows me to dress in a fun silhouette while still providing me with some coverage and warmth. This fun and affordable blouse from WAYF was the perfect piece to add to my Spring wardrobe. I love the paisley print and light crepe fabric. The high-neck and cold shoulder detail make it super flattering and a fun way to show off your shoulders.

A blouse like this is such a statement piece that the rest of the outfit can be left simple. These peep-toe booties from Jack Rogers have the cutest scallop trim and are a great neutral color. I know I will be getting tons of use out of them this season.

FLYING OVER SEATTLE

Ben and I had one of the coolest experiences of our lives to date this past weekend! We flew over Seattle in a single engine, 4 seat plane with Cloud 9 Living

A few months back when we celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary, I surprised Ben with the "Learn To Fly" experience. Ben has always had a thing for planes and had been talking about giving flight school a shot. I knew this 45 minute flight where he could get a feel for flying would be a nice alternative to jumping right into getting his pilot's license.

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day in typically rainy Seattle. Clear skies, light wind and lots of sunshine made for optimal conditions for our flight. Ben, along with the help of the FAA Certified instructor flew us over Lake Washington, Bellevue, Seattle and Elliott Bay before landing with Mt. Ranier in the distance. It was AMAZING!

If you live in the Seattle area, I couldn't recommend this fun experience more! If you decide to book this experience or any of the other awesome experience through Cloud 9 Living, make sure and use code MOLLY15 for 15% off your total purchase until June 30th.
