Summer Nights in Stripes

Top: Gifted; Shorts: J. Crew; Sandals: Dolce Vita;
Sunnies: Karen Walker; Bag: LV; Bangles: Ocean Leather, F21, Nordstrom

On Wednesday night, N and I met up with some new friends for sushi at Umi. These were people that we met on the boat at Seafair a few weeks ago. And above is what I wore. In three words: i. am. obsessed. Like, I want to wear this outfit everyday for the rest of summer. These shorts were a surprise find at J. Crew online during their summer sale. I just had to have them. Turns out they pretty much go with everything and can be dressed up or down. WIN. 

Anyway, dinner was a real blast and both N and I walked away from Umi feeling like lucky kids who just scored lollipops for free. Reason being: as you get older, you realize that some friends that you may have made back in college aren't really "friends" anymore and have become more like acquaintances. This is totally acceptable and natural in life, however it's always a nice surprise when you meet people that you really connect with and then both work to foster that friendship to see where it leads. The best part is when it actually works out and you discover that you like being with them just as much sober as you did when you were both drunk and raving about how much you like Umi sushi (long story). So- N and I are on the way to making new friends :) We discussed this on our walk home from dinner while taking in the setting sun and the peek-a-boo Space Needle:
