Vintage Feels

Hey everyone! It's been a while since I've wrote a blog post. Cory and I have been traveling a bit, and have been getting ready for the holidays. Anyone have any fun holiday plans this year? I'm just so happy to be back in the PNW this time of year. I also can't believe that it's almost Christmas and 2018... where did this past year go? I can't even believe it. A year ago this time I would have never thought we'd move back. But let's just say we're so happy to be back. 

A few days ago, Cory and I were driving around our neighborhood and couldn't resist the sunshine and this amazing VW bug we passed by! I love vintage cars and I will own one someday. And we had a two week streak of sunshine, and it was beautiful. I could actually walk outside and not have to worry about the rain ruining my clothes! See everyone, it doesn't rain all the time in Washington. :)

For this look, I'm wearing my new red Coat from dRA, my Made In 90's tee from Sézane (yay for 1991 babies!), a basic beanie from Urban Outfitters, a pretty new bag by Isabel Marant, some high wasted Levi's (similar ones), and an embellished pair of heels by Sézane. Make sure to shop the look below! All of these pieces would be great holiday gifts!

A CUP OF COFFEE AND POLÈNE

Happy Wednesday! Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and how many of you are excited?! I'm also excited because Black Friday is officially Christmas season. I'm trying to get double the workouts in since I know I'm going to be eating a lot. Do any of you have any family traditions on that day? My family loves traditions, and we they have been doing this one for years. Like, probably 20+ years... my family members (including aunts, uncles, and cousins) ride this 9 mile bike loop. For part of the bike ride, there's a lake we ride around. This year, I'm running just the 2.8 mile loop around the lake, and then meeting some of the fam at Starbucks and walk around again. My family might think I'm lazy, but I don't care, haha. Definitely not going to feel as bad eating all the food! And who doesn't love a Starbucks Holiday drink on one of my favorite holidays of the year?! 

Anyways, today I'm sharing with you my new favorite bag from Polène, a brand based out of Paris. This leather bag is my daily go-to, not kidding. Ever since I got this Numéro Trois, it's been a daily essential. It's big enough to fit a 13 inch laptop in it (slanted but it works), and all my daily essentials. I can't even begin to explain how happy I am to have this bag in my collection. I highly recommend checking out their whole collection! They're pieces would also be really good holiday gifts.

If you're looking for a really good coffee shop in Seattle, I highly recommend Elm Coffee Roaster. They're one of my favorites because they have the best hazelnut milk latte! They're locating in Pioneer Square. Map for a referecnce.

My Teddy Coat

I've been shopping around for the perfect Teddy Jacket, and I found it...

Recently I went into Free People, and found this amazing one. There are a lot of coats out there like this one, but this one seemed more fluffy and oversized than most of them. In Free People, I'm normally a Small or Medium, and I got in an XS. It's the perfect oversized fit and I've been wearing it non stop. I could have gotten a Small, but decided to get the XS. It's extremely warm and surprisingly wasn't as expensive as I thought it was going to be. Make sure to shop the look below or check out the coat here! It would be a perfect gift for someone, or a gift for yourself for the colder months ahead.

Sneaker Love

Happy Friday! Hope you all have had a good week! 

Today I'm sharing with you a new favorite pair of sneakers by Shoes of Prey. If you're particular with your sneakers, and can't find the style you want, I highly recommend checking out Shoes of Prey. Shoes of Prey has been a go-to-place for shopping because you can design your own pair of shoes. Also, their shoes are comfortable. I wore a pair of red pumps 15 hours during New York Fashion Week, and I didn't get blisters! I've gotten blisters from flats that I wore for two hours.

These sneakers are a newer design for the brand, and I can't get enough of them. They're leather so they're super easy to clean, and my favorite part is my name engraved on the inside. They're my most comfortable pair of casual sneakers. They would be the perfect gift for someone for the holidays! I mean, who doesn't like wearing sneakers. Especially when you can design your own pair.

Make sure to check out their collection here!

Favorite Fall Booties from Shoes of Prey

Happy Fall! It's been a while since I've written a blog post. So here I am, and I want to share with you a new favorite pair of fall booties... I know I'm going to be wearing them throughout the year. These are the Halsey boots by Shoes of Prey. If you don't know the brand, I highly recommend looking over their collection. You can design your own custom shoes, and they're a reasonable price. 

I've been wanting a pair of lace up booties for a while, but it's so hard to find a pair that I love at a reasonable price (I mean, under $200). These boots caught my eye and I'm so happy that I now have my dream pair of lace up booties. 

For this boot, I used a croc embossed black nappa leather, black laces, matte gold eyelets, and a black leather lining. I love how the croc embossed gives the perfect texture. Black and gold is my go to.

Make sure to check out Shoes of Prey's website! I promise you won't be disappointed in the shoes you order. It would be a perfect gift to someone for the holidays, or even treat yourself.
