HAT: Target| SHIRT: c/o Bijou Vintage Bazaar| SKIRT: H&M| TIGHTS: Forever 21| BOOTIES: Macy's
When roaming the streets of Seattle with best friends, I aim to be comfy and cozy so as not to spend too much time fidgeting with rising hems or scratchy materials (here's looking at you, christmas sweater). So my usual go-to for such an occasion is this plaid Bijou Vintage Bazaar shirt- which is as soft as buttah might I add. But plaid has a tendency of being boring when just paired with jeans, so I aimed to add some flair to it by pairing it with a paper-bag-waist skirt and some booties. And can I mention how much I'm loving beanies this season? I have a really girly style, and I really like the tomboy contrast it gives most of my looks. It was just the right touch to finish off this look :)
And this is my third piece from Bijou Vintage Bazaar, among a Brady Bunch-esque romper (seen in this post and this one), and a bell sleeved 70's daisy dress (seen in this post and this one). To say this is one of my favorite stores is, clearly, an understatement. If you're looking for some pretty, vintage pieces, check out Bijou Vintage Bazaar here!
The flowers Lina bought me- d'aaww
So by now you guys are starting to come under the impression that Pioneer Square is definitely one of my favorite neighborhoods in Seattle. One of my favorite things to do while walking to work in Chicago is craning my neck up at the old buildings and pretend I was back in the 1930's, walking the streets with other city slickers and dames that are off to work. It was so dreamy trying to imagine how those same blocks I was walking on looked eighty years back, and Pioneer Square lets me do that all over again. And while we were roaming around the cobble stoned blocks, Lina caught a restaurant window from the corner of her eye and shuffled us in to try it out. And ya guys, I felt like I was in the pages of a fancy pants magazine while there.
The kitchen was exposed and looked like it belonged inside an Italian country villa, with a fire oven and fresh sprigs of thyme and lavender tacked onto the wall next to the copper pans. We stood at an island and ordered a big loaf of sourdough bread and interesting little cocktails to sip. I got something called elderflower because it sounded like a drink an elf would drink, Tom got a ginger cocktail (delicious), and then poor Lina got some sort of plum vodka drink because the waiter seduced her with his dream boat eyes and said it tasted like Christmas. Friends, it did not. It tasted like Polish medicine and it was hilarious watching her trying to drink the small shot glass for an hour, haha.
And here are some of my favorite picks from Bijou Vintage Bazaar- they have everything from 60's coats to cute housewares!:
