Wet & Wild Dressing

No Comments   Posted by gretchen |  Category:Fashion

The weather around Seattle has been wet, windy, and cold- par for the course this time of year, I know. But would you believe as a native Washingtonian I’m often stumped as to how to dress myself in the months between November and March? Rain boots are cute, but I don’t want to wear them all day long (and they aren’t very workplace appropriate). My trusty black North Face hooded shell keeps me dry, but we all know it isn’t very cute. I’ve put together an outfit that should keep anyone venturing outdoors warm and dry.

1. Pendleton Chief Joseph Cherry Wood Sunglasses (when it’s cold AND sunny) 2. RawEarth Studio Southwest Porcupine Quill Necklace 3. The North Face Baker Delux Jacket (I love the pockets, I avoid taking a purse when it’s raining) 4. Madewell Winter Stripe Henley 5. J Brand Fuchsia Skinny Jeans (you need some color when the weather is gloomy) 6. Steve Madden Lindley Boots (I was at a meeting with a girl wearing last year’s version and I couldn’t take my eyes off the bright zipper!)


Mate Picnic

No Comments   Posted by gretchen |  Category:Home Decor, Inspiration

One of my favorite memories of Argentina is wandering through the park watching people picnic.  It seems everyone in Argentina heads outside on the weekends to enjoy the weather and drink mate (ma-tey).  The picnics go on for hours, with everyone enjoying a sip of mate.

Now that the weather is getting better, I’d love to have my own mate picnic in the park.

This Cath Kidston picnic basket comes with all the accessories, just add the snacks.

Pendleton provides the perfect picnic blanket.

You don’t even want to know how long I’ve been wanting this radio!  Perfect for a picnic.

Mate cup and slotted straw for drinking the loose tea.

Hoorah for a cute Thermos!
