|Seattle Fashion Blogger: Trying my Hand at the Official Fashion Color of Seattle: Olive Green.
Put this in YOUR diary: this was the outfit that I finally felt like a real Seattle style blogger. Why? The elements are pure Pac-Northwest. No shocking sun-drenched brights, no short shorts or skirts, just a bit of punch to what seems to be the official color of Seattle, olive green. You will see loads of army green, olive drab, whatever you call it, but that color of green on twill that one associates with the military, you will see it all over the fine denizens of this fair city. Usually paired with fleece, and some running shoes.
Well, here, I am wearing it. Only no fleece, and definitely NO trainers.
|Meeow! A Lightweight Cashmere Scarf Adds Animal Appeal to a Spring Ensemble
Everything that I'm wearing today was gifted or thrifted. This army jacket with a flattering (to me) empire waist was something I jumped on when I saw it as a consignment shop. The shirt was given to me by the handsome boyfriend, it's true TRUE vintage, and now one of my favorite T-shirts ever. The skirt is new to me, a Goodwill find, but you're probably too busy checking out the AH-MAZING giraffe print pony-hair boots to be reading this paragraph. Thank goodness, they are from Goodwill too. I paid a pretty penny for them too, but I still think they were worth it!
I'm all-over mixing animal prints for Spring, and one animal print that I'll be wearing all season is the new and gorgeous cashmere scarf from L'affaire Cashmere. I've long admired Pseu in hers, so when I had a chance to order one, I jumped at it. This scarf was beyond my expectations. I've worn cashmere scarves before, but this one is tissue thin, super soft and lightweight, so that it flows like a liquid. No bulk, and while it keeps the neck warm, it is lightweight enough not to overheat you on a sunny day. So, a PURR-FECT layering garment for Spring.
I love how leopard and other animal prints can be so versatile- you can play pin-up va-va-voom, rockabilly, red carpet starlet, glammy rock-n-roller, punk rocker or sophisticated world traveler, and still feel yourself in these fun, nature inspired patterns. Expect to see more of us playing with animal instincts this spring. We'll be a veritable and fashionable zoo!
