Midi Skirts

Thursday, September 18, 2014

I've been in somewhat of a funk lately, but instead of completely giving up and wearing yoga pants all day, I'm combining two pieces that reflect comfort and elegance; a darling midi skirt and simple knit top!  The midi skirt forces you to channel your inner Grace Kelly no matter what kind of mood you may be in.  With the simplest of movements it looks like you're floating on a cloud down the street!  A simple knit top (or cropped top, if you're a little more daring) compliment this look nicely while keeping the skirt the main focal point of the outfit!
So skip the yoga pants and try something a little different today, I promise you'll love it!  The perfect blend of comfort, class and elegance.  XXOO

One of my favorite things beside fashion and food is traveling, and when I get to combine all three I'm a very happy girl!!  I've been wanting to visit Seattle for the longest time and I'm so glad I was able to share it with my love, Rick.  Being a Seattle native he got to show me the in's and outs, sprinkled in with a few touristy spots!!  Here are few snapshots from our trip!

I can't get on a plane without first stopping at the store and picking up a few magazines (People StyleWatch is a must) and snacks, whether it's a 45 minute or 10 hour flight those are my must haves.
We arrived in Seattle and stayed at a boutique hotel right in the heart of downtown called The Moore Hotel, perfect walking distance to the Market!  Our first night in Seattle we took the monorail and headed straight to the Space Needle for dinner at the Skycity Restaurant.  I asked for dinner with a view and I sure got one!  I must say this was my favorite meal in Seattle.  I highly recommend the smoked prosciutto and beecher's flagship….delish!
 The next morning I couldn't wait to wake up and walk over to the Market!  I'm a sucker for a Farmer's Market and this one takes the cake!!  Rows and rows of beautiful fresh flowers and the price…I couldn't believe how inexpensive these were $5.00 for a bouquet, say what!!!!  Oh and the seafood oh my goodness, beyond amazing, we had to go back a couple times for the Jumbo Shrimp!  I thought living in San Diego I had access to the best but Seattle is hard to beat.  We stopped at the Athenian for a breathtaking view of the Puget Sound and the coldest beers in the world, no joke, and being that it was in the mid 80's this was quite refreshing.  I'm also a sucker for macarons and Le Panier did not disappoint!
Fruit, crabs, shrimp...oh my!!!
If you're a coffee fan, a trip to Seattle wouldn't be complete without visiting the very first Starbucks.  I had to see it and I didn't care that it took an extra 20 minutes to get my drink, especially since I could have gone one block in any direction to fall right into another Starbucks…nope it had to be the first one!  My drink tasted just as good as I had hoped.  The only difference, their original logo!
Of course we couldn't pass up the famous gumwall!  (It took a few tries for us to get this shot haha I couldn't blow a bubble to save my life!)
Another day another adventure.  We drove up to Queen Anne, a really nice neighborhood about 10 minutes from downtown, to meet some friends for breakfast at an amazing little french cafe, Le Reve.  I've never been so happy to eat pastries before, the Kouign Amann (pronounced "queen-a-mon") is so decadent, warm, buttery and delicious mmm I can't wait to go back again just for this!  We spent most of the day driving around Seattle and stopped by the Ballard Locks to watch the boats, say atop the Fremont Toll and made our way up to Bellingham to visit family.
Our cloudy view of the City from Queen Anne hill.  Our last day in Seattle was the only day where the "Seattle weather" came out to play. Everyone we ran into kept telling us how lucky we were to get such great weather and I'm not complaining!  If you've ever been to Seattle you know just how incredible this city is and I already miss the noise and the Market.  If you haven't been, add it to your list now!!
Until next time Seattle!!
