Sleepless in [Sunny] Seattle

“What if you someone you never met, someone you never saw, someone you never knew, was the only someone for you?”

Oh the romance that filled the streets of Seattle when “Sleepless in Seattle” first made it’s big debut! And I always watch it and think, perhaps if I move to Baltimore, I’ll finally meet the right man for me in Seattle by hearing him on the radio and writing his weird kid a note that somehow started some awkward romance even though I have a boyfriend and then hang out alone at the top of the Space Needle and then live happily ever after.

…and then I slap myself and say, This is real life. And Tom Hanks really isn’t that cute to be dating all these hot women anyway. Oh but I do love Tom Hanks.

Well, I’m hoping you enjoyed my random ramblings, but there is an actual outfit in this post. My friend and I decided to play tourist for a day – and hung out at Kerry Park (which is THE park to see if you are visiting Seattle, apparently, this was my first time there). When you live in Seattle, you don’t look at tour guides and travel lists when you decide what you want to do for the weekend – but I decided after more than 20 years in the city, it was time to head to the infamous Kerry Park and see what the rage was all about.

And about the clothes….the jean jacket is again – a fabulous J.Crew find (on sale, but similar plus size version here and straight size version here), the neon yellow top is old (but I’m obsessed with this plus size one and this straight size one), the neon clutch is from H&M (recent) and the maxi skirt is from J. Crew (similar here).

  1. Great post -even if I wasn’t from Seattle, I’d love that movie. The soundtrack is super romantic, and how perfect would living on a houseboat on Lake Union be? I serve on a board with someone who does and we sometimes meet on one -super fun!
    I love the photos shot on the deck at Kerry Park -they are stunning -love the view of Mt. Rainer especially, and the yellow simply pops against the skyline.
    I think I’ll grab a glass of wine and stream the movie -for old time’s -and Nora Ephron’s sake.

  2. Isn’t Kerry Park iconic? These shots really do the views justice! Looks like you caught one of our few clear days to do it. Love this maxi skirt on you! I’ve been craving these skirts lately because they are sooo liveable but chic. Loved the timeliness of your homage to “Sleepless”. Nora E would be proud, Natasha!
