Good morning friends, family, internet strangers! How was your weekend? My Monday is starting off with a bang - I missed my regular bus, and everyone on this bus has the sniffles. I want to hand them all Kleenex and send them home, but sadly, I'm not in charge of team health. I should be, right? (Says the girl who only got 8+ hours of sleep a night last week because she was sick.)
The next few posts might slightly bend the time-space continuum, since today's outfit post is from my trip to Seattle (and I have tons of great pictures and restaurants to share from that trip), but I still have another post or two coming from my past trip to New York. You guys are smart though, you'll figure it out! Just a heads up.
First, let's just stop and marvel at these gorgeous cherry blossoms for a minute. These were in late February! Spring has truly sprung in Seattle. Sorry, everywhere else.
Our foliage doesn't even look like that in San Francisco.
You know what else we don't have in SF? The Space Needle! Built in 1962 for the World's Fair, it was once the tallest structure west of the Mississippi (a title that now goes to the Wilshire Grand in downtown Los Angeles once its construction is complete in 2017), and can withstand winds up to 200mph and up to a 9.1 magnitude earthquake. That puppy ain't goin nowhere.
See if you can spot it in some of these shots! This is like the easiest "Where's Waldo?" you'll ever play.
We started taking shots at an adorable park near Carly's apartment (all of the parks are adorable, let's get real) and then moved to another outlook spot overlooking the entire sound (I think) and letting us see as far as Mt. Rainier in the distance! We could see almost all the way to Canada!
I'm going to be honest, sometimes Carly tells me which mountains are which and I just can't keep them straight. I barely have the neighborhoods in San Francisco down pat. So, hopefully, this post is geographically accurate; apologies if it's not.
(That's not Canada, Canada is to the left a little more, eh?)
This is when the outtakes started happening.
Have I mentioned how obsessed I am with these boots? These Corso Como boots are a dream - so comfortable to walk around in, they hug my calves perfectly, and they can dress up or down any outfit. I am a huge, huge fan of Corso Como as a brand, so if you're looking for new boots I couldn't recommend them more highly. They're also usually on sale on Gilt so check there first!
After this little detour, we went to Pike Place Market and grabbed brunch at a restaurant overlooking the water that had bloody mary's with oysters in them. Trés Seattle.
