We just returned from a trip to Seattle, so I feel like I have a little more insight for this Travel Light post than usual since I’m not just dreaming about a trip. It was sunny for a couple of days while we were there, but also rained a little too. It was actually more like a heavy mist, and was a little windy down by the water sometimes. We did a lot of walking and stayed plenty warm enough. I wore a light jacket and scarf everyday, and sometimes a hat for sake of not wanting to mess much with my hair.

  1. You packed really well and I love the different outfit combinations you were able to put together. I’ve never been to Seattle but I’d really like to visit one day!

    1. Thanks! I find that if you stay within a small color palette it’s easier to mix-and-match items. You should visit Seattle, it reminded me so much of San Francisco (weather aside) except much less crowded and chaotic.

  2. I love this post! I really need to visit Seattle some day!

    1. Thanks! You should, it’s beautiful!

  3. Those are great combinations, perfect for traveling and so confortable I bet. Beautiful sunrise pictures!

    1. Thanks! While this column is generally a fantasy packing list for me, I do own a few of these items and can vouch for their awesomeness. 😀

  4. Sounds like a great itinerary! What was your favorite part? Also, great outfit choices! As a former and will-be-again Seattleite, I really need to get me a pair of those ankle boots. Love them!

    1. I don’t know that I have a favorite part yet, I really enjoyed all of it. I wish we could have gone to see more nature type stuff, just didn’t want to do it on the wetter days.

    I live in Seattle and this is the perfect gear for any day during fall /winter. Great post!!

    this is the perfect balance. I love the jumper and those boots.. where are they from?

  7. Hi! I was just wondering where the black jumper is from? I’ve been looking for one for a while.

    1. Ooops, nevermind, just saw the link!! Love every piece you put on here!

    Me encanto la seleccion de ropa, es muy practico ☺️. Podrian ayudarme con ideas para 6 dias en chicago, viajare en septiembre y desconozco el clima ????, gracias .

    1. Thank you! I think it might be hot and humid in Chicago in September. We visited in November and it was very cold and windy. I’ll add Chicago to my list of requests. 🙂

    Hey Jess! I love your blog! I was just reading about what to take to New York and you’ve given me some great ideas! As a born and raised Seattleite, I have to say I love all these outfits, your take on Seattle style is spot on! EXCEPT, real Seattleites don’t even own umbrellas, so if you take a cutesy see-through umbrella, everyone will instantly know you’re a tourist. Instead, make sure you’ve got a cute windbreaker with a hood. We don’t usually use the hood, but at least it makes you look prepared. 😛

      Hey Courtney!

      Thanks for the feedback, and your kind words. 🙂 My little one’s had windbreakers in Seattle and you’re right, they don’t really keep you dry, hahaha. We walked across the city and were soaked by the time we reached our destination, even with an umbrella!

    I love your website. My husband and I love to travel and I’m working on our site. What program did you use to create your site and how did you get the “Travel Map” on your sidebar?

    1. Hi Brittany, thanks for reading! My site is based on wordpress, and the plugin is called “Map My Posts”. Happy travels!

    Can’t find the weekender bag on the link.

    1. Thanks for letting me know, I’ll update the link. This list is almost 2 years old, so I’m sure it’s sold out. It was by Kate Spade Saturday brand (which is no longer produced). A similar shape and color is made by Lo & Sons:
