Scarf and Leggings – Aritzia / Vest – Uniqlo / Mittens – Urban Outfitters / Boots – Hunter
Well what do you know, a Christmas time post in the month of May! We’re behind on outfit posts as usual, but it has always been a tradition to share my moments at the Christmas Tree Farm and this year is no different. I think these outfit posts are always a little bit funny because I end up bringing out the pieces that I rarely wear on the daily – like these BEAR mittens for example. Also, matching my outfit is not a priority hence this get up. It’s not about being stylish (well, it’s a little bit about being stylish) but it’s about being comfortable and having the appropriate attire to
cut down a tree watch Eric cut down the tree.

The last time I went to the Treasure Island Music Festival was back in 2014 and while I had a pretty decent time, I actually didn’t know if there would be an artist that I would go back for. Lo’ and behold – that group was Honne. Because seeing them once in a year isn’t enough, you have to see them twice. Treasure Island MF fell smack dab in the middle of my busy traveling season and to be honest, I could have used a weekend off, but the tickets were bought and I was committed. To make things even worse, the weather was supposed to be terrible. Now, I’ve endured a little bit of rain at Bumbershoot and at Capitol Hill Block Party even, but I have never experienced music festival rain quite like this. Honne’s set was earlier in the day right around lunch time and it was actually quite warm. This photo was taken right after their set and as you can see, I’m without jacket layer. Shortly after this, the clouds came in, the rain started pouring, and things didn’t get better from there. Artists and bands were canceling for the day because of the weather and/or being delayed despite the music festival telling attendees that the festival would continue onwards in rain or shine. I had a couple of qualms with the way the festival was organized slash how things were communicated, but I also have been there so I can cut them a little bit of slack too. For the most part, I felt like I was pretty prepared with the outfit I had on, but the thing that saved me the most were of course, the Hunters. To this day, they are one of the best purchases I have ever made. Every time I know I’m about to go through a really difficult event with finicky weather, these are my go-to’s and I would strongly recommend them to just about anyone.

Remember the days when I was just too self-conscious to be posting photos of my outfit that we used a space helmet to make things a little bit easier? I’ve learned that when you’re traveling for work, it’s importnat to set aside time for yourself on your trips where you do things that are just for you. Taking advantage of being home in Seattle very recently, I decided to take a trip with my family up to Vancouver so that we could do a little eating and a whole lot of shopping. This was something that Kevin and I used to do when we were younger – taking day trips up to visit our favorite boutiques. Naturally, it was pouring and made for the most unpleasant experience. Shopping in the rain is the worst, but I’m glad I was able to return home with a few new pieces that I love.

I love seeing the difference in A Collection posts between seasons. With summer, there is so much light in these photos, the idea that we have the capacity to do anything, and some weight lifted off our shoulders. I have so much hope for the rest of 2013 and my hope is that it will be better! I hope you all have a lovely weekend and that these photos can do their best to inspire beauty and life into you!

Veronica told me just the other day that I was overdue for A Collection post. In looking through my archives, I see that it has only been TWO months. This is actually probably a new record for us. Like many “A Collection” posts, there is no theme. I wish I had something to say about how I’m feeling or why I chose the photographs that I did, but I choose them because at the time it is what is most pleasing to me!

I can easily say that purchasing my Hunter rain boots earlier this year was the best purchase of 2012. Why it took me so long to buy myself a pair of Hunters after growing up in Seattle all my life, I couldn’t tell you. Now the brand is becoming even more impressive by releasing the fold-able “Tour Boot.” One of my biggest problems with Hunters was that it was very difficult to travel with them. Putting them in a bag or a suitcase takes up so much room and at times they can be a little bit heavy, but let’s be real – no other boot can do the same job that they can. Now with the “Tour Boot” everything is possible.

Favorite Event of the Year: Capitol Hill Block Party 2011
Two out of three days was just enough to make this festival not only the highlight of my summer, but the most memorable moment of the year. Who can turn down a weekend of great company, amazing live performances, free goodies, front row at Cults, stellar weather and meal breaks at all of my favorite restaurants just outside of the gates? You can’t.

Is it acceptable to wear my Hunter boots two days in a row? Can I wear it every day that it rains? Can I wear it everyday?
I don’t know how I endured every rainy day in Seattle without them.
