Capitol Hill Block Party 2017 Lineup

This is a great lineup, but secondly – how great are the colors being used for this year’s festival?! Designgasm… I just made that word up. I hope that’s okay. As most of you know, Capitol Hill Block Party has always been very near and dear to my heart and this lineup looks SO good. Should we fly home for it? Answer y/n.

A Chambray Deep-V

Choker – Gift / Top – Aritzia / Pants – Uniqlo / Sneakers – Nike Flyknit / Sunglasses – Kate Space

Well! We got a little ambitious with our deep-v over the summer! In a previous post, we wore this with a beige tank top from Aritzia and while we were in Seattle decided to opt for without. We were fortunate that everything ended up being okay, but I did realize I felt a little bit more exposed than I usually do and no matter how hot the temperatures are and how badly you may want to pull off a deep-v, it’s certainly not for everyone! I did, however, like pulling off this athleisure look – these Uniqlo jeggings work with just about everything. For this day that I was in Seattle, this outfit was perfect for all of the activities we did and all the places we went.

Out on the Town: 8/25

Does this feel like sort of a blast from the past? We used to write Out on the Town posts all the time when we were living in Seattle and we kind of miss it sometimes. To be honest, on most weekdays, I’m completely exhausted from the work day and I can barely muster up the energy to sit through traffic and drive an hour up to the city for dinner or drinks – but that’s when things are most happenin’! The event we’re sharing today is actually…not in San Francisco and back in Seattle! This showed up on my Facebook feed because one of my friends was attending and I thought it was such a great idea that I would share it with all of my Seattle readers in case you, too, wanted to attend. If I were still back home, you know I totally would!

This coming Thursday, Capitol Cider is hosting a “Drink and Draw Night” which apparently happens on the 4th Thursday of every month! You’ll join others in sketching a live model while using art supplies provided by Artist & Craftsman. For all of the details, click here for the Facebook event and join! because what else are you going to do on a Thursday night?

The Real World Back in Seattle

The Real World is bringing things back to Seattle for Season 32 and more specifically to my old neighborhood of Capitol Hill. They are going to be right on the street that I lived on and it’s actually the prime place to be. Capitol Hill has changed a lot since I last called it home, but it’s the perfect environment for any young 20-something that doesn’t know what they’re doing in their life and needs to be on a reality show. What exactly is the recipe for that? Hip bars within walking distance, trendy restaurants, and a bunch of bros that have invaded my favorite neighborhood. Oh sorry, does this sound negative? I’m not even going to be there, but I am very much looking forward to this season as long as it pays homage to the original Seattle season. Janet was always my spirit animal – we were so much alike except for the smoking.

The Real World used to be such an iconic show and one that I have watched through the years, but as of late – things have gotten a little weird. They bring in the exes of all of the housemates to live. with them. and they all hook up with each other and it’s crazy. Also, they don’t seem to have jobs anymore, which is something that I really appreciated because that seems pretty realistic doesn’t it? To have a job in your 20’s? Here’s hoping that Season 32 goes back to their roots! (though I’m not holding my breath)

Capitol Hill Block Party 2016

The initial lineup was just released yesterday, but as we all know – it only gets better as time goes on when it comes to CHBP. As always, I’m especially proud of the Pacific Northwest presence – Odesza, STRFKR, The Cave Singers. Capitol Hill Block Party is a festival that means so much to me and was a huge part of my upbringing in music. It’s hard to believe how many years I’ve been away from it now – just doesn’t seem normal, you know? And it’s not like I have a festival here in the Bay Area that I can call home quite yet. 🙁

Aw sad feels.

Home for the Holidays

Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 preset

There’s nothing worse than being sick during your vacation and of course the holidays! In the month of December, my company gives us a generous amount of time off so that we can get away from work, unwind and actually relax, and spend time with friends and families. A lot of my coworkers actually go on elaborate trips during this time and I always get so jealous, but it’s also the perfect time for me to just return home to Seattle too. The first day of break, I came down with the flu. Hard. And it was absolutely miserable – so bad that I didn’t even get to go visit all of my favorite places and eat at all of my favorite restaurants! Despite the flu though, I’m surprised at how many photos we were able to capture from the trip. Above is a snapshot of Oddfellows’ outdoor holiday decorations that I took when I met up with Max, Veronica, and her boyfriend Alex over brunch.

Back in Seattle…

Striped dress – Aritzia / Birkenstocks / Sunglasses – Marc by Marc Jacobs

I had the best time returning home and visiting Seattle last month. These crosswalks in Capitol Hill were freshly painted that morning and I knew I couldn’t leave without getting a picture with them. We did our best! These crosswalks are typically so busy in the Pike/Pine corridor so it’s tough to get a photo without another stranger in them. These were mainly done just in time for Pride, but I had heard that they were going to be sticking around for much longer. As they should! They totally bring a little something to the neighborhood, plus they are super fun. I really love dresses like this for the summer where you can just pull it on over your head and have it be a no-fuss type of an outfit that is ready to go.

The Best Time to Visit Seattle

It’s actually been a few weeks since I returned from my trip back home! It almost feels a bit outdated to write this post now, but then I remembered that I couldn’t not share all of the photos of everything that I ate while I was in Seattle. It just seemed like the wrong thing to do. Even though I’m calling the Bay Area home now, Seattle is never that far away and I don’t take advantage of the short flight as much as I should. It can be challenging because I have times at work where I should be in the office and not on vacation, but luckily for me the summertime is not that time. And that time also happens to me when Seattle is the hottest and the brightest! I decided to go back for Father’s Day and a few days extra which ended up being the right amount.

Before I even landed in Seattle, I had one request and that was for Kevin to pick me up at the airport (okay a 2nd request) and take me straight to Wasabi Bistro. I didn’t get to go here when I was in town during the holidays and it was the only thing that I wanted because no offense – California can’t even match up to Seattle when it comes to sushi and seafood. We were all thinking it. Also, I had sushi three times when I was home, so there.

I looked at this and all I could get excited about what Jamie xx! AMAZING!

Also, I think I had the opportunity to see TV On The Radio and The Kills at CHBP a couple years ago, but great to hear that they’ll be back again.
