Guys, it’s finally Friday! I can’t wait for the weekend because Casey and I have some fun plans ahead of us, including Oktoberfest! I am hoping the weather will hold out and not be too rainy, because the temperatures sure have shifted pretty drastically in New York over the past few days. All of a sudden it’s trench coat weather just like that, which I admittedly love. I also love that Saturday is October 1st and that Halloween and Thanksgiving will be here before we know it, but back to trench coats. I put together a handful of my favorite styles at the moment, ranging in price point too, so take a peek after the jump and let me know which one is your favorite! xo
Whenever I come home to Seattle I always head down to where I grew up, which is an area called Richmond Beach. I love walking all the way down to the beach, sitting on the sand and taking in the expansive view. But I also love standing at the top on the bluff, which is so breathtaking.
The thing about Seattle is, it can be stunning with its surroundings, but it can also be gray, rainy and kinda gloomy, which can make it very hard to take outfit photos! It can be drizzling (or pouring) one minute and then all of a sudden there will be a sun break.
So when I got up the other morning and put this outfit together, I wasn’t quite sure if my new suede boots would get ruined (seeing that we had a torrential downpour the day before) or if I would luck out and hit a sweet spot. Luckily, by the time we arrived at the overlook, the clouds had started to part, the sun began to shine through, and the different contrasts and dimensions of the sky were silvery and calm.
My Dad getting the perfect detail shot. :) He’s the best.
Anyway, we snapped a few photos of me for old times sake in front of my favorite backdrop and I was so taken with how my outfit blended perfectly with the sky! I kid you not, it started sprinkling shortly after we finished. Oh, Seattle.
