1) Amazing dress made locally by Kara from Tumbleweed on Alberta. (I really really love this dress.) I put a white thermal underneath for layering and added texture.
2) Frye boots from Johnny Sole on SW Alder.
3) Old teal tights from somewhere cool and great new grey textured knee-highs from Sock Dreams on SE Powell.
4) Blue righteous record earrings from betsy & iya. (duh).
I had *so* much fun in this outfit.
In the morning, we were on our own. Luckily, Kajsa’s friends, with whom we stayed, wanted to accompany us to an island breakfast and gossip about the small town. It was super delicious, in every way. On our way back to the car, there was a mysterious honk from a wild looking lady. We thought the island was just ridiculously friendly. While we might not have been wrong about Vashon’s welcome, this is what caught up to us seconds before we took off:
If there was ever a perfect OOTD, this is it. I couldn’t tell you where she purchased any of these stunning morning-after pieces, but I can bet it was not at Walmart. Kajsa, stunning in her Swede/American married maid look, made me laugh so hard and admire her even more. I hope this amazing get up is a perfect reflection of how vibrant, big, wild, carefree, uninhibited, and unpretentiously perfect her marriage will be. girls girls girls
We said goodbye and enjoyed our ferry ride back to the homeland.
