Seattle Weekend Getaway

I absolutely love Seattle. It's by far one of my favorite places for a weekend getaway. The first time I went to Seattle was for our first wedding anniversary. I fell in love with the place. So sophisticated, clean with the perfect blend of local & department stores...did I mention SUNNY? It has never rained in Seattle for me. Of course, we only go in the summer, but I am convinced...it's the sunniest place on Earth!!!


We went to Seattle 2 weekends ago for a friend's wedding. Check out the details of the event here

BOI to SEA Airport outfit (the Converse totally ruin the look, but I insist on wearing shoes and socks in the airport...weird I know).

Sweater: Urban Outfitters, Tank: Old Navy, Necklace: DownEast Basics, Jeans: Buffalo by David Bitton via Dillard's

Arriving in the big city and look how sunny it is :-)
 


Hiking Puget Sound, yes I hike in pearls. People looked at me crazy for wearing a sweater (and probably for wearing pearls), but when you're coming from 100* in Boise, 75* feels freezing.
Hat & T-shirt: Target, Short: Ann Taylor, Sweater: Urban Outfitters

For some reason, anytime we're in Seattle I have a major blood sugar crash (maybe it's all the walking)??? For some other unknown reason, Corey always takes a picture of me at this time haha
Epic blood sugar crash of 2014
Epic blood sugar crash of 2011 (after walking forever to the REI Headquarters)

One of my favorite places in Seattle? Pike's Public Market!!! So much to see, do, touch, smell. It's quite the sensory experience.









Only in Seattle - Ostrich & Emu eggs
 


We opted to visit the Seattle Aquarium on Saturday. I left inspired by all the colors and textures. It made me want to run to the fabric store and buy all things resembling these underwater beauties. 


Aren't these feather pens amazing?!?
 



I also love Waterfront Street. Good views, good people watching and really good ice-cream!




Returning from Seattle I stuck to comfy airport clothes, again with the Converse. 
Jean Jacket: DownEast Basics, T-shirt: Piperlime, Pants: hand-me-down, Shoes: Converse
Headband: Francesca's, Sunglasses: JcPenney

Already missing Seattle!!!


Ps- I am so excited for the upcoming Emmy's, Monday August 25th!!! Get ready for a ready carpet review. Read past red carpet reviews here.
