Christine-Cameron-My-Style-Pill-Lake-Washington-Madison-Park3

Last Friday, Casey and I ventured over to Captiol Hill where we had lunch at Barrio, then drove over to Madison Park so I could show him Lake Washington. We spent time walking along the water and snapped a few pictures before heading back over to South Lake Union to meet friends for dinner. It was such a beautiful day and Seattle felt pretty magical. Summer here is just my favorite.

I had to drop him off at the airport tonight (there may have been some tears) but I think the city stole his heart just as I was hoping it would. The trip was a great success and we had a blast. I will be in town for another week so stay tuned for more Seattle-centric photos! xo

Hat: Panama Hat (I found mine in a shop in Spain but this version by Anine Bing is pretty spot on) / Sunglasses: Karen Walker / Necklace: Forever 21 / Shirt: Zara / Skirt: Michael Kors (I found mine at a consignment shop, but I love this one by Current/Elliott) / Shoes: UGG (old) / Bag: YSL (on loan from Bella Bag)

Christine-Cameron-Lands-End-Seattle-My-Style-Pill9

Yesterday I took Casey to Kerry Park in Queen Anne. It’s one of my favorite places in the city and I love taking people there when they come to visit because not only is the view breathtaking, I love seeing their initial reaction as we drive up to the overlook. Gorgeous, isn’t it? But on top of wanting to visit Kerry Park for the view, I knew it was the perfect place to shoot this outfit for Lands’ End. I partnered with the brand to try a new pair of their jeans since they recently relaunched their denim line. They are now focusing on achieving a great fit for everyone, offering low, medium and high rises (I’m wearing this style) in soft material and in various washes. The new styles also now come with slightly slanted back pockets and a higher waist in the back that trims your shape immediately. I also really like their chambray shirts, especially the striped one I’m wearing. You can check out more denim styles here!

Christine-Cameron-My-Style-Pill-Forever-21-Styling-CAMO_2

Happy Sunday! So as many of you know, I’ve been working on a styling challenge with Forever 21 and was asked to create three looks to illustrate different parts of my day to day. I decided to share a few aspects of my work life – you can see the other two looks here and here - and for my third and final look, I chose to share what I would when I’m out and about attending evening press events and launch parties.

I like to dress up a bit more when attending these types of events and I loved this dress the minute I spotted it. But the thing is, I’ve never been very comfortable wearing a body con dress without some sort of jacket or blazer over the top, so in an attempt to feel more comfy, I paired it with a more casual camo shirt-jacket to take it down a notch. Plus it gave me a chance to have a little fun with pattern play!

I’ve been a fan of Forever 21 for over ten years now and have watched it grow and change from a place where I only bought my “going out” clothes to now what is a multifaceted store that offers everything from lingerie to pencil skirts and more. I have learned to shop their various stores, no matter how big or small, and spot and pick out really cute things that otherwise might have been overlooked. So when Forever 21 asked me to create three looks that illustrate parts of my everyday life, I was of course up for the challenge. I headed to the gigantic four-level store in Times Square and got to work. I thought about what the main aspects of my work life are and decided to start with what I would wear to a professional meeting in midtown. I knew I wanted to feel polished and put together so I oped for a really great pencil skirt as my starting point and went from there.

I picked a black and gold statement necklace to add a bit of boldness to this basic button down and to draw out the darker details in the skirt.

I kept the bag and shoes a neutral color to bring more attention to the bold, printed skirt.

This classic blue button down is very versatile and I love that I can dress it up for a meeting and then later on in the day, pair it with white jeans and sandals for a more casual look.

Forever 21: Necklace / Shirt / Skirt / Shoes / Bag (old but here is a similar style)

Style Tip: I realize that for those of you who work in a more traditional work environment, a brightly patterned skirt and open toed shoes may not be appropriate. If that is the case, or if this much print feels a little scary, I would suggest simply swapping out the skirt for a deep navy blue pencil skirt, and making your shoes the focal point. Try a pair of pointy-toed bold pumps in a zippy color like citron or coral as your statement piece.

Christine-Cameron-Barney-Dog-Seattle-My-Style-Pill2

Just a little hello from my backyard in Seattle. My Dad snapped these photos of me and Barney last night while we enjoyed the warm weather and some appetizers before dinner. Being here feels so good and spending time with this handsome guy is just the best. He loves to be touched, so whether it’s your feet resting on his back, a big neck hug or him backing up into and leaning his 145-pound body against your legs, it doesn’t matter, if he is being touched in some capacity, he’s all about it. My little cuddle bug, I love him so much. Anyway, I hope you all had a productive Monday and here’s to a great rest of the week! xo

P.S. I thought it would be funny to share what he is doing right this minute. He actually just shifted his body to get even close to me. What a sweet boy.

Tarifa-Spain-beach-Christine-Cameron-My-Style-Pill22

This past Sunday, we took a little day trip to Tarifa, to celebrate our friend Jami’s Birthday. It was about a two hour drive from Malaga, so we got up bright and early to beat the crowds and spent some quiet time on one of the nearby beaches. We soaked up the sun, applied massive amounts of sunscreen, ate more tapas and sipped cold beers. After a few hours, we drove back into the old part of town, which was just beautiful. The streets are narrow and winding and the views surrounding the town are incredible. It’s one of the ports where you can catch a ferry to Africa, which is also pretty neat.

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves…

This whole trip, I let my hair air-dry, constantly wore my sunglasses (but that’s nothing new) and wore no makeup, except for the occasional swipe of mascara and a peachy lip color. I lived in my bathing suit and constantly had sand in my hair, but it felt pretty great to just be au natural and not worry about anything else. Sunday was no different for the most part, but I knew Tarifa was a special place and we were celebrating so I felt like slipping on something a little more dressy than just my usual shorts and tee. I had packed this dress hoping to wear it at least once, and it turned out to be the perfect piece to slip on to enjoy the second half of our day. I definitely had beach hair, which was still drying in these photos, so I wore my new favorite Panama hat and a bright lip for a pop of color.

Thanks for following along over the past week and a half while I’ve been away in Spain – it’s been so fun to share these photos with you on the blog as well as Instagram. I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as I have! xo

Saturday, Andi and I took the train into the city of Malaga and did a little exploring. We visited the big market there, where I bought some great spices, and we sampled some of the local fare at one of the tapas stands. We made the obligatory trip to Zara, where I picked up a few things, and then we sat and chatted over more tapas and wine. Here in Spain, it is expected to sit down every few hours, eat a tapa or two, drink a glass of wine and chat before heading back out again. Oh, and naps. Naps are big here. I’m a big fan of that part – well everything, really. All and all, the day was a success, and I loved having some catch up time with this one. She’s pretty great. :) xo

My dear friend, Andi and I have a girlie moment on the beach. Thank you, Casey, for taking these photos, for having patience and always finding the humor in things. Love you. xo

Hola from Spain! How was everyone’s weekend? Ours was pretty fantastic. We spent time on various beaches in Benalmadena and Tarifa, explored nearby towns, and indulged in more than our fair share of tapas and vino blanco. I can’t believe how fast this trip has flown by and that it’s already Monday. We head out Wednesday morning, so today and tomorrow will be spent reading on our local beach, taking nap breaks and sampling more of the amazing food this country has to offer. I have to say, being from Seattle, where fish is very fresh and abundant, I can be somewhat snobby about my seafood. But the amount of fresh shrimp, prawns, mussels and clams we’ve experienced so far is pretty impressive. I really love it here. xo
