It’s starting to become that “in between” weather in Seattle. It’s not cold enough for a winter coat anymore, but it’s still too cool to go jacket-less. It’s the type of weather that makes spring style inspiration hard to come by.
Luckily when this weather comes rolling in, I turn to one of my trusted fashion uniforms. I grab some of my favorite PNW made and vintage finds and style it into this “borrowed from the boys” look.
Do you ever catch yourself wearing the same thing all the time?
That’s me pretty much daily. I’ve paired down my wardrobe so that I can easily grab and mix up a few key pieces. One of my go-to casual weekend styles includes fitted sweats, a slouchy t-shirt, my pleather bomber, red Converse-like sneakers, and sometimes a beanie and/or scarf if the whether permits. However, that’s not always appropriate for every occasion you might find yourself in over the weekend.
So I had to come up with another weekend uniform option. This look is one that I rely on again and again for a still casual, but can-go-to-pretty-much-any-type-of-activity outfit for the weekend. Brunch? You got it. Shopping? Definitely. Straight to happy hour drinks? Oh yeah.
Read on to find out what I’m wearing and to learn which items you can use in your own closet to create your own casual weekend style.
I’m not sure I ever felt as glamorous as I did this past Friday at the Bellevue Fashion Week Posh Party Trend Show. There were black lights. Front-row viewing access. Amazing beats. Chocolate paired with wine and cheese (which was revelatory). The nicest hotel room I’ve ever stayed at. And brunch, mmmmm.
This past weekend was Seattle and Bellevue’s Fashion Week festivities. Travis and I were invited to the Posh Party Trend Show at The Bellevue Collection on Friday, September 28, 2015. The event was hosted by no-other than Rachel Zoe and all proceeds benefit Bellevue LifeSpring, a program that helps feed, clothe, and educate those in need and living in Bellevue, WA.
We also got to attend a chocolate tasting at jcoco chocolate’s popup store in Bellevue Square Mall alongside Brittany Streissguth of Pumps & Plaid, Jenn Haskins of Hello Rigby, and Mollie Ruiz-Hopper of Mollie in Seattle. And when our heads grew heavy, we stayed at the Hyatt Regency in Bellevue and ate a scrumptious brunch at its restaurant, Esques, the following morning. Follow along as we take you through a very exciting 24 hours.
I traveled to Nashville last week and was excited for the opportunity to explore the local scene for good shopping and eats. However, since my trip ended up being a foodie’s disappointment, I’ll focus mostly on shopping in Nashville vs. eating out. Luckily, this guide will be continually updated as I visit this client again in the future — so stay tuned!
Read on for my guide to shopping in Nashville that includes bad ass vintage shops, a Google Map, and one awesome hipster coffee shop.
