  • Seven Hair Salon & Giveaway

    seven hair salon seattle blogger style life

    [just here for the giveaway? scroll down to the end of the post!]

    Have you ever been to Seven hair salon in downtown Seattle? I hadn’t either – and before my first visit, I would ask friends that question, and they almost always responded with “oh you mean that place with a DJ and full espresso bar?!” And while it’s true – they have a sweet, non-douchey DJ spinning in the salon as well as a delicious (and complimentary) espresso bar – there was something far, far better at Seven hair salon: excellent service and talent.

    I had the chance to visit Jacob for a cut & color – and not only did he make me feel fabulous from the first seat in his chair, but he gave me a style that passed the air-dried hair test. That’s right. How do you know when a stylist knows what they are doing? You can let your hair air-dry after a shower (with a bit of recommended product worked into wet hair, of course) – and it will still look amazing. As you can see from my air-dried hair test photo above – he did just that. If you are in the market for a cut, color or blow-out, check out Jacob at Seven in Seattle – he’ll give you that perfect, care-free style that every girl loves.

    Now – how about a giveaway?

  • The Most Comfortable Work Outfit Ever

    fall fashion style blog in seattle

    Outfit Details: Pants: GAP (on sale!) | Linen tee: J.Crew | Blazer: Target, old (similar) | Necklace: Madewell | Chelsea Boots: ASOS 

    Here on the good ol’ West Coast – the corporate world is very business-casual. In fact, here in Seattle, we’ve gone beyond biz-caz to tech-casual, which basically means as long as your wearing pants and a clean(ish) shirt, you’re good. Sometimes though, it’s nice to put on a blazer and some black pants. It feels professional. And comfortable – especially when my pants feel like PJs, my t-shirt is linen and my blazer is soft and relaxed.

    I present to you: the most comfortable work outfit ever, complete with slouchy tee, track pants, flat chelsea boots and a Starbucks Red Cup. Now get out there, throw on some PJs and make shit happen.

  • Clogs Clogs Clogs

    seattle fashion blogger

    Outfit Details: Chambray Button Down, GAP | Chunky Knit Sweater, H&M (similar here) | Patched Boyfriend Jeans, GAP (also love these) | Buffalo Leather Clutch, Ampersand As Apostrophe (awesome local Seattle shop) | Clogs, Urban Outfitters  

    CLOGS. I finally got a pair. I’ve been eyeing the grandmas-favorite for a few months now – but couldn’t bring myself to shell out over $200 for a pair – knowing I wouldn’t wear them often enough to make the price worth it. So when a friend forwarded me the link to a pair from Urban Outfitters – that were real leather and wood – and UNDER $40 – I freaked. Then I immediately bought them. Now I’m breaking them in you guys, like Cher.

    Do you have a pair of clogs? Isn’t it surprising how comfortable they are? Beyond the ouchies of breaking the leather in – they are incredibly comfy, though a bit clunky. I really do tromp around my office in them – but I know all the darting eyes are just basic bitches jealous because they didn’t know clogs were on trend, and now they have to spend their PSL budget for the week on a new pair.

    Also – a note about that chambray shirt you wore and wore this summer. It gets to stay around for fall! It’s the perfect under-sweater companion – I even had a blog post last year doing the same thing with a different chambray shirt.

    That’s all for me, today. I hope you’ve been enjoying all my ranting over on Twitter lately – it’s getting real over there.
