I spend a lot of time reminding my clients and writing in this blog that you should be planful with your purchases each season. When I organize other’s closets (including my own); I advise that you should take stock of your wardrobe, and then make thoughtful purchases based on a prepared shopping list. Premeditated shopping trips keep you on budget and help you maintain a curated wardrobe.
However, I also advocate for leaving some room in your shopping budget for those special treasures you may find unexpectedly. A great example of such a find would be this sweater/jacket. When I stumbled upon this jacquard jacket at Nordstrom Rack, I knew that it would be a show-stopping addition to my wardrobe. So easy to wear casually (with jeans and a tee shirt, as I have done here), but also a great piece to dress up over a dress or pair of slacks and a blouse.
I had so much fun exploring Pike Place Market on this rainy morning. I live so close to the market but don’t get down often enough – parking, tourists, the weather all discourage me. However, when I do come down, I am never disappointed. Everything is so fresh; flowers, fish, artisan baked goods, and the best Greek yogurt you’ll find. Since this trip, I am making a more concerted effort to head down when I can (it is literally a 10 minute drive from home). If you are in Seattle and come to the market, be sure to grab a cup of coffee at Storyville Coffee (up above the market on 1st Avenue). The view is phenomenal and the coffee amazing.
