Weekend Wardrobe- Discovery Park

Top: Thrifted/Similar; Belt: Anthropologie/Similar; Skirt: Vintage/Similar; Shoes: ModCloth

Late in the afternoon on Sunday, Katie Marie V and I decided to take a little trip to Discovery Park! Discovery Park is actually a super cool spot. It's the largest park in Seattle, clocking in at 534 acres, and has everything from beaches, to gorgeous old buildings built as part of Fort Lawton in the early 1900s, to sprawling forests, meadows, and everything in between.

I was particularly thrilled to come across this meadow because you don't come across settings like this every day in Seattle. The meadow was hopping with crickets, so we carefully made our way through to this spot, which had the most gorgeous lighting I've seen in a while.

The skirt I'm wearing is one of the most ridiculous pieces of clothing I own, and thus one of my favorites. Seriously, can we talk about the trim for a minute? There's ric-rac in 3 sizes and 4 colors, loop-de-loops, ribbon, piping, and wool fringe. Wool fringe! It's like someone went shopping for trim and liked too many kinds, but instead of choosing a couple decided to choose all of them. And that's why I love it!

I decided to pair the skirt with this top I thrifted when Katie and I went shopping a few weeks ago, a simple white belt to bring the pieces together, and my current living-in-them flats. It was a pretty perfect outfit for a nice stroll through the park.

I had an amazing time at the park with Katie, strolling around, chatting, and having some photo shoot time. We finished off our day with some frozen yogurt, which really put the cherry on top of the sundae(sorry. So much pun).

How was your weekend? Did you have any fun adventures?

Til next time!

  3. I didn't know you live in Seattle - very cool to find another Seattle fashion blogger. Yes, Discovery Park is a cool spot. I like that it's a mixture of trails, grass and beach. I especially like the beach. However, it's not as toddler-friendly as other parks.

  10. I LOVE that skirt! And these pictures! The lighting is perfect, and field pictures are my favorite. Especially with swirly vintage skirts (that have awesome trimmings), and stripes. This whole outfit is just perfect.
    This weekend I made more jam. And I think I love canning, despite being terrified that the boiling water, the hot jars, or the boiling jam will burn me. I make my husband put the jars in and out of the canning pot. I'm such a chicken, ha! But oh, the kitchen smelled so good when we were done, and we got five jars of Raspberry Lavender Jam out of it. Delicious!

    1. Lady, you're the best! I'm glad to hear you love canning! I started doing it because I was curious and got super hooked. The first year I did it, I tried to make at least 1 recipe each weekend because I was so hooked!

    I've been looking for a nice circle skirt like that for some time now. Yours is so pretty!
