Here in Seattle the weather doesn’t reflect the season until it’s almost over. Although spring is right around the corner it’s still pretty cold and rainy for the most part, with a few nicer days. Thankfully that means I can still wear all of my favorite sweaters for a few more weeks. I paired a pair of oversized trousers, which truly are a bit too oversized for me, with a longer cut turtle neck sweater. I always layer during the colder seasons, so I threw on a white elongated tee underneath. I added my white coat since it was pretty cold the day I shot this set of photos. I recently picked up a new pair of black boots, and they have easily become a frequent go to item of mine.

I’m a big fan of leather… I wear some sort of leather outerwear almost every day. I picked up this lamb leather jacket over the summer, and didn’t think I would get as much use out of it as I do. I can’t express how important it is to invest in quality outerwear pieces, especially for fall and winter. Most of the time I wear a lot of black, so I thought it would be a nice idea to mix it up. I’m really drawn to oversized items and layering them. Denim button ups as well as a few styles of white tee shirts are a good place to start when looking for basic items to build your closet off of. Of course I couldn’t completely exile black out of my outfit, so I chose a pair of black denim pants to add some contrast. I’ve been wearing my wide brimmed hat a lot more lately. Since the weather has taken a turn for the cold I almost never leave the house without a hat. If you’re tired of beanies and hat hair, I suggest you find a hat that you can wear all season. When it’s not raining out here in Seattle, I try and wear these boots… Which surprisingly have spent a lot more time on my feet than in my closet lately.

Winter is approaching… Can you tell by the fur coat I’m wearing? All black seems appropriate for the weather we’ve been having here. I mean, when am I not wearing black anyways. I was recently in Washington DC and took some photos for a project I’m working on. I thought I would share.
I’m so happy it’s finally fall—that means layering, sweaters, and tons of outerwear. Thankfully the black and white trend stuck around another year, it makes getting ready so much easier, and it’s my favorite combination. Lately I’ve been really into light wash distressed denim, and lucky for me, I only paid five dollars for mine. It’s a really simple and easy project to go about. The best part is you can make them look exactly how you want. I’ll be honest; it’s been really hard for me not to wear my leather jacket every day of the week. If you don’t already have one, you need a black leather jacket in your closet this fall/winter. I chose to go with a white collared shirt for a more polished look, if you’re going for a more casual look, you can never go wrong with paring a graphic tee. As for my shoes, I kept it simple with a black bootie essential for fall.

This has been in my drafts for the entire summer, and it’s only right to click publish before the last few hours run out. I’m going to miss the sunny summer days, but who isn’t? I shot a few photos along with my friend, who’s a professional photographer. I learned a lot, and enjoyed beautiful scenery with people I love. It was super hot so I went with a classic white summer dress and floral bralet to add some detail. This summer has been great, but I’m definitely ready for fall.

Back on my vacation in Canada I took a day trip to an island, and a little surf town. The weather was all over the place, starting out sunny quickly turning foggy along with a temperature drop. Typical PNW weather. Needless to say, the day was nice and made for great scenary to shoot.
As for my outfit, I went for layers– as usual. I recently picked up this vest, it’s a great neutral piece for any season, especially fall since the color camel is trending. I styled my outfit around this vest, pairing a black denim jacket underneath for contrast, adding a striped shirt to break up the solid colors. I chose a basic pair of cuffed Levi’s shorts for a casual look, and my cutout boots which are great for summer. To tie the look together I grabbed my black wide brimmed hat while the sun was still shining.

Throwin’ it back to my vacation in Canada, and the summer weather! As summer begins to turn into fall, I realize how many posts from summer I have yet to publish. This outfit was mainly inspired by the environment as well as staying comfortable while still looking nice on vacation. Who says you can’t wear sweaters in the summer… this is one of my favorite pieces to wear in the summer, for those not so hot not so cold days, perfect for the transition in September. I paired a floral bra-let underneath, and grabbed my favorite shorts (mentioned in the last post), always layering I chose my olive green vest to add some color. Since I was staying on the beach I thought it was fully appropriate to slip on a pair of leather boat shoes. The scenery was gorgeous as well, could’t help but to take a few photos.
