  • Valentine’s Day for All

    Valentine’s Day is almost here, once again. And I have to admit – I’m really not a huge fan of this mushy, Hallmark holiday – but not for the reason you may think. The idea of having a day where you treat the one you love with intent and sweetness is wonderful. The part I don’t like is the pressure – OH SO MUCH PRESSURE. Whether you’re getting your loved one a gift, trying to pick out what to wear, trying to ask out a potential Valentine, or trying to avoid questions about your (night-in) plans on Valentine’s Day – it’s all so much build up of expectations that so often comes crashing down.

    So this Valentine’s Day, let up on that pressure valve a bit. Having a romantic night in with your sweetheart? Have a first date that happens to fall on V-day? Going out with the girls? Staying in alone for the night? Have fun with it! Relax. And don’t expect perfection from the night – you do not live in a romantic-comedy. You’ll have a better Valentine’s Day if you appreciate your current situation and whatever plans you may have for the night.

    And if you need some help getting inspired for the event – no matter what your relationship status may be – check out the inspiration boards below for Valentine’s Day night 2014.

    Texture ASOS coat seattle fashion

    Outfit Details: Long Coat: ASOS | Scarf: Nordstrom | Top: Macys | Shoes: Zara (similar) | Bag: Zara (similar) | Wallet: Bought in Thailand | Lipstick: NARS Cruella

    Confession: I’m completely obsessed with my new ASOS jacket. It started off as one of those online orders that I knew I would either love or loathe – but after a few wears I realized that not only did I love it – it had become my go-to cold weather piece. The play on texture (see the image of the back of the coat below for details), the rose gold zippers, the dark blue (p)leather accents…it’s design perfection.

    Enough about my outerwear obsession. How about them HAWKS! Seattle, my wonderful city, is having it’s year in 2014. Macklemore won a few Grammys, the Seahawks just won the Superbowl (it feels surreal to say that out loud)…anyone who didn’t know about the greatness within this little-big city is now discovering it.

    Also…quick side note on my hair. I updated my color to the so-trendy ombré color late last year, but haven’t posted many pics of it since then. I got my color done at Gene Juarez – Patrice at the downtown Seattle location is a hair magician. For someone like me, who is always wearing my hair messy and accentuating my natural wavy texture, ombré color is the perfect easy-going addition. I think I’ll keep it this way for a while (or until I get bored and make an irrational decision, of course).

    And that’s about it folks, enjoy more outfit pics below!

  • The Black Cat Clutch

    seattle fashion blogger fall stylist 1

     We are deep into autumn now – pumpkin patching, squash recipes and faux fur shopping are in full swing. If you are from Seattle – you understand the glory of October: the golden sun, the clear but cold skies, the rainbow of red, orange and yellow everywhere you look. What you may not know is the hidden glory of October – my birthday. Why so glorious you ask? Because my friends are the best gift givers in the world – and this year, a good friend surprised me with the cutest of cute black cat clutches.

    If you follow me on Instagram – you already know – I have a black cat (and yes she is the cutest and yes I am a crazy cat lady). And now…I have a matching clutch. That’s right ladies – matching your shoes and purse is so throw back Thursday. This season it’s all about matching your accessories to your pets! With shoes that look like paws, furry accessories to match your furry friend’s coat and animal-shaped clutches, being one with your mini-BFF has never been easier.

    On a more serious note – I’ll be doing a lot of traveling over the next month and a half. First for work, I’ll be heading to Baltimore for my company’s annual meeting. Then, for fun, I’ll be heading to Thailand for a whopping three weeks. My best friend and I have been planning this trip for about a year – so we are so incredibly pumped to jet off to foreign territory. I just have to remember my own packing advice from a couple years back…*leave all the shoes!*

    And finally…Have you gotten into the Halloween spirit yet? The crazy day is just around the corner! BONUS OUTFIT: Me in a dinosaur costume.

  • Pumpkin Patching

    seattle fashion blogger goes pumpkin patch hunting fall 2012 1

    As you know…it’s October and fall is truly starting to show it’s orange and red colors here in the Pacific Northwest. And that means only one thing in October…PUMPKIN PATCH TIME! I headed out to a lovely pumpkin patch in the greater-Seattle area and ended up finding the perfect little pumpkin to hang out near my doorstep until I decide to gut the thing for all it’s seeds…and bake them into deliciousness.

    Oh, what’s that? You want to know what I’m wearing? Sure, sure. I’ll tell you. My little coat is from GAP (it’s old, but I love this one), striped shirt is from H&M (similar here), scarf is from Forever21 (old, similar here), boots I’ve had forever (but these and these are amazing).

    And if you can’t tell, I’m really into statement-socks sticking out of booties for this season. In fact I bought the most adorable pair of hen-socks from J.Crew this past weekend that I plan to flaunt near my ankles very soon!
