Seattle's Best


Seattle is the perfect city. A couple weeks ago I was staying at the Sheraton Hotel right by the Convention Center for the PNW Key Club Convention. Our room was on the twenty-second floor and I couldn't even handle the view! On our last morning the lighting was just too perfect not to do a shoot with this beautiful city in the background. My lovely friends Esther, Sarah, and Hailey (left to right in the third picture) were flawless models! 

Going to bed and waking up to this view outside my window made me realize how much I want to live there! So I promise to myself that after college and living abroad I will come back to my city!

Perfection

H&M top and jeans, thrifted bag, Sonoma Lifestyle jacket, TOMS shoes

This jacket and bag is thee most dynamic duo for me right now. As you may have noticed I wore both in my last post. They're just so perfect for everything! The jacket works with just about any outfit your heart could possibly desire to wear and the bag fits my camera, wallet, and phone perfectly! 

These photos were shot downtown Seattle near the Washington State Convention Center. I was recently there for the PNW Key Club Convention and it was amazing! Key Club is a high school community service club that I'm involved in and it was just incredible to be in Seattle with 2,000 other Key Clubbers and meet the wonderful people there! Also, I got to pretend I lived in Seattle all weekend so... it was perfect.

Adventure's Out There!

 Sonoma Lifestyle jacket, thrifted skirt and bag, target tights, Madden Girl boots

My spring break has finally come to an end! I had my first day of spring quarter yesterday and though I'm excited for my classes this quarter, it's always so hard for me to give up the freedom of break! 

If you follow me on Instagram you'll know I've been on a few wonderful day trips/ adventures over the past few weeks. Last week Brooke and I took a little adventure to Port Townsend. And yes, I'd much rather spend my day taking a ferry to a gorgeous little town in the San Juan Islands to have tea at Pippa's than "partying it up" (Ha!) or whatever people do! 

Also, yes, Brooke and I are wearing the same jacket! One lady came up to ask us if we were twins making us realize that we're the same height, have the same hair color, and were wearing the same jacket, virtually making us look identical from the back...

Seattle Lover


Whenever I visit Seattle I never want to leave. There's so much to do and see and so much wonderful coffee! A few weeks ago my friends Abbi, Kristina, and I went downtown to get coffee and shop around downtown. Later we went to the cutest vintage shop called Atlas in Fremont. I found some great pieces that I can't wait to share on here so keep checking back this week for more posts!

Seaside


Living on the coast of Washington has spoiled me. I can't imagine living anywhere that's not a half hour away from the ocean. There are a million gorgeous parks in Washington to choose from but a few weeks ago my friends and I took a little day trip to my favorite of them all: Washington Park in Anacortes. Brooke and Rose agreed to model for me and these pictures are the result! Although it's very cold during the winter, which is when these were shot, walking a long the beach and staring out at the ocean is still gives me the most amazing feeling.

Always Sweater Weather

 Macy's sweater, thrifted dress worn as skirt, Fred Meyer tights, Converse sneakers

It's looking wonderfully green here in the Northwest as you can see! And remember in my last post when I said when spring rolls around I might wear color? Well I think I have found with today's outfit that that was a lie. Ah well, neutrals are forever classy and in Washington it's always acceptable to wear sweaters and the color black.

Neutrals for Life

All photos via Pinterest 

I thought since I haven't posted in a while I'd put up this collage I made of just amazing neutral and black and white outfits. AKA the only colors I've been reaching for lately. Is it okay that I don't feel the need to wear color ever again? Maybe as spring starts showing itself my all neutral mindset will be a little more welcoming. Just maybe...
