Gorgeous day in Seattle…

 It’s so funny how if you give us a little sun and 50 degree weather, we are all happy as clams here in Seattle!  I’ve been dying to shoot down by the water with the Space Needle in the background for a while.  We walk by this spot almost every morning on our walk.  It’s SO pretty…Blog Zara Sweater J Brand Destroyed Jeans Frye Booties-1 Blog Zara Sweater J Brand Destroyed Jeans Frye Booties-2So…I tried something a little new with my hem.  I am 5′ 8″, but have ridiculously short legs.  That means, I usually either need to hem my jeans (will do a post on that at some point, because who wants to pay $20 for that??), let them scrunch up at the bottom, or roll them.  These jeans have a super long inseam (35!), so I double rolled them.  I can’t decide if it looks weird, or I’m onto the next “cool thing”  Let’s just say the latter 😉 Blog Zara Sweater J Brand Destroyed Jeans Frye Booties-3 Blog Zara Sweater J Brand Destroyed Jeans Frye Booties-4I really should do more posts with my bags.  I only have one actual diaper bag (which I posted here), but it doesn’t even look like a diaper bag (I made sure of that!).  I just buy oversized bags, and have a little bag that has a few diapers and wipes that I swap out into each of them 🙂  This particular bag I’m holding here was a major eBay score.  Regularly $446, and I got it for $26!
