Express Yourself: Favorite Finds Around Pacific Place

One of our favorite times to shop is when we don’t have anything in mind to buy. Nothing beats wandering aimlessly around our favorite stores and admiring the beautiful displays and tasteful mannequins. While this does occasionally pose a serious threat to our wallets, some of our favorite pieces were found this way. On a particularly beautiful day last week, we had a craving for something new, so we ventured up and down the Pacific Place escalators to see what we could muster up. Here are some of our favorite finds:

1.)   We absolutely adore this pencil skirt and polo combination from Ann Taylor. The Fringed Tweed Pencil Skirt adds a professional spin on an office staple and we love it paired with the Eyelet Polo Shirt. The collared top makes it a layering essential to pair with a piece of statement jewelry, or even just wear it plain like it was displayed. This is a perfect outfit to wear to a job interview or business casual setting!

2.)   This outfit from Club Monaco is to die for. The white on white is fantastic for the current warm weather. The infinite scarf is the cherry on top of this gorgeous ensemble and would easily convert a summery attire to a more Seattle-weather-friendly outfit. Finish it off with a strappy pair of sandals or some adorable booties like the mannequin has on and go out and strut your stuff!

3.)   Leather is so in right now! We love Club Monaco’s Hayley Linen Bomber because the juxtaposition of the linen with the leather makes this jacket chic and unique. It combines the comfortable familiarity of linen, with the edgy leather sleeves and accents to create a versatile jacket that can be dressed up or worn casually out on the town!

4.)   These Pure Focus Glass Water Bottles from lululemon are the perfect accessory to motivate those early morning runs (or so we’ve convinced ourselves). They come in a cute variety of colors and are fully equipped with a handle on top for easy portable access. Plus, the alternating panels of rubber and glass not only look cool but are practical for no slip-grip purposes as well.

5.)   We really hit the jackpot at Barneys New York when we fell head-over-heels in love with this gorgeous emerald green number. The intricate beading that runs along the length of the dress adds to the elegancy of the outfit. Also, the combination of a high collar and a sleeveless cut not stands out, but it’s also the perfect balance of classy and fun!

6.)   Who doesn’t need a good tote? We loved these vibrant colors from Barney’s New York. The totes are huge and are perfect for carrying all of our necessary little accessories. We think everyone is overdue for a brand new tote this season!

7.)   Now that the sun’s out, who says we can’t be a little southern up here in Seattle? These floppy hats from Barney’s New York are absolutely delightful and are a must-have this year! Nothing beats the wide-brimmed beauty of the Chiffon-Trim Panama Sun Hat you’ll see in this photo hanging in the top-left corner and bottom. It’s an adorable addition to any spring or summer outfit and will help keep the sun out of your eyes during those long sunny walks on the beach.

8.)   Hello BCBGMaxaria and hello gorgeous Soren Printed Long-Sleeve Romper. This beautiful and summery romper totally caught our eye! The stylist at BCBG nailed it with the belt and hat, accessorizing this trendy little piece. Rompers are making a huge comeback this spring (though they never really went out of style) so make sure you grab one quick!

9.)  We are now going to make a bold statement. We LOVE bold statement jewelry. The dark blues and the light aqua featured in the BCBG’s jewelry case are breathtaking. A good statement piece can be worn with pretty much any solid colored top, and will dress up any outfit. You would be hard-pressed to find an outfit that didn’t improve with just a little bling to it.

10.)  We know we said you need a new tote, but we would like to amend our previous statement: You need a new tote and a new clutch. Specifically this new clutch. This J.Crew clutch really caught our eye. The neon yellow is a color that is being featured in a lot of high-fashion pieces. Here, that bright top paired with the neutral beige, tapers the clutch so it still stands out, but doesn’t overwhelm the rest of the outfit. Hold it by your side or wrap the wristband around your arm – either way, you’ll be looking great.
