Seattle Photo Diary

Because I have a handful of new posts to share with you guys, I figure my best bet is to start out chronologically with a photo diary of my recent trip to Seattle. We made the trip a couple weeks ago for my 23rd birthday & had a fantastic time. We did all the touristy stuff we could possibly cram in, & ate an appalling amount of food. The trip was definitely a success & made me even more excited (if that's possible) to return to Europe & be a shameless tourist there.

Seattle's iconic Pike Place Market
Giant vegan cinnamon roll - birthday breakfast of champions
Doing my touristy thing with Pike Place Market's unofficial mascot (In retrospect this doesn't seem like a very vegan-friendly photo-op...)


The Great Wheel - Because it was my birthday, we waited in line for 50 minutes & paid an exorbitant price to ride this thing. The view was pretty spectacular, I'll give it that.  

Scrumptious mushroom spinach (vegan) quiche + spicy lentil soup from Chaco Canyon Cafe
Most amazing sandwich I have ever eaten in my life... so I obviously had to photo-document it. Artichoke pate + cashew cheese topped with cucumber & sprouts on molasses wheat bread... I commend the genius who created this.
And of course it wouldn't be Seattle without the Space Needle

I was wearing:
Asymmetrical dress - Nameless (from Jennyfleur Loves)
"Paradox" Pistol boots - Steve Madden (here)
Chronograph Watch - Michael Kors (here)
Vanilla Hamilton Tote - Michael Kors (here)
Teal belt - Vintage
Sunnies - Ray Ban

My coverage of Fashion's Night Out Vancouver coming up next post so stay tuned :)


  1. Awesome pictures! The foods looks yummy, although it's not usually what I'm used to (especially the sandwich- the combination sounds most unusual, but I'd be more than willing to try it). Sounds like you had a great birthday! I love the color/style of your dress :)
