good LOOK for less: Jackie of SPPN!

Many of you know the fabulous Jackie of Sweetie Pie Pumpkin Noodle. I consider her to be a close friend of mine, you know in that crazy blog/internet/i've never met her kind of way. She's one cool chic, she has a great eye for style and she also has a fun trip coming up! This California girl is heading North - to rainy Seattle!

Seattle is one of my favorite places to visit it has an outdoorsy yet sophisticated feel and tons of great sights and shopping!

Here I put together a shopping list and outfit ideas for Jackie for her upcoming trip!

Jackie filled me in on several wardrobe pieces that had "made the cut" for the trip, then I simply filled in the blanks and whipped up some outfits! The shopping list looks like this (keep in mind, many items are from Jackie's existing wardrobe):

Let's take a look at some outfits...

I like to take accessories like necklaces, earrings and bracelets with me when I travel. But let's face it... all of that can be hard to keep track of out of a suitcase. I included bold accessories like this necklace that will travel well and can be worn multiple times in one trip. A large handbag can accommodate kids "stuff", a camera and a map or two. Flats are great for walking!

Layering is key with the unpredictable Seattle weather! A gloomy morning could turn into a glorious afternoon! In this case just tie the sweater around your neck and you are set to go! I love packing dark bottoms like these skinny jeans... they resist stains and can be worn multiple times on a trip without laundering. Again a large handbag for the necessities and some bold jewelry pull the look together!

If layers is rule number one to comfortable and sophisticated travel wear, then "neutrals" is rule number two. Finding items that can mix and match on a whim is great for packing lite but still looking great!

Have a great trip Jackie, I can't wait to hear all about it!

Yay! I loved it all-so much fun! Can't wait for our trip. I did some shopping over the weekend and picked up a few pieces-actually I need to email you about something fun I did! You will either like it or think I am a complete dork.

Layering is DEFINITELY key here. For instance, this morning I left my house and needed a sweater (it felt like tights weather too, but I knew it would be hot later so I skipped them). Now it's in the 80s and supposed to hit 90! Chances are it will be just tee and shorts later today.

And by the time she gets here, it could be rainy and drippy all weekend! Hmm, I'm that nubby cardigan for just that occasion!
