I rag on Seattle sometimes -- for the traffic, the gray days, the crowds (I don't love crowds)-- but sometimes I forget that it really is an awesome place to live.
I was reminded of it this weekend when I got to play tour guide to Caroline. Caroline came to the Pacific Northwest for an audition for the Sew It All TV show. We made plans to meet for breakfast and then we wandered over to Pike Place Market, a few blocks away.
It just happened to be a gorgeous day and Caroline and I, turns out, have a lot in common. I really enjoyed the hour or so we had to chat sewing, blogging and for me to show off my city. She is incredibly sweet and genuine in person-- and I loved her accent. (And secretly wish I had one, too... or at least had an excuse for saying y'all.)
Yes, the wall behind us is covered with chewing gum. I really have no idea why-- it's been like that for years and now is a weird attraction right by Pike Place.
Also, it was nice to have someone who was just as excited to take outfit photos as I was.
jacket: hinge via nordstrom // dress: anthro // scarf: france // booties: wanted shoes (last year)
Caroline, come back real soon and visit.
p.s. if anyone ever considers visiting Seattle, I'm no expert but I have been living in city since 2005, and I love to share my favorite places-- touristy and not. :)
