Rose Garden in Winter

Near the zoo in Seattle we have a rose garden. In the summer months it is of course, filled with all types of roses in full bloom. On the occasional weekend there might also even be a wedding ceremony being held there as well. I’d never been there before in the winter but we decided to go take a peek last weekend to see what the landscaping looked like. To my surprise, there were still a few rose blooms left on some of the bushes. Things for the most part were dormant but the garden provided a different type of beauty, one that you see when the changing leaves have almost all fallen off the trees. It’s that moment were you can clearly see the seasons changing and winter starting to set in.

Winter Trench

Cuyana Trench Coat // With Love, Amanda

Hello! Gosh I feel like I need to reintroduce myself after taking a 3+ month hiatus from the blog. Since I last posted a lot has happened… Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years… and you know, life. It felt great to get back out shooting again this weekend with a token sunny, yet frigid, day in Seattle. I thought my Cuyana trench coat would be enough for warmth… but I was gravely mistaken. Nevertheless, it is still one of the most flattering, classic trench coats out there and a staple in my closet. Read More

Cuyana Spring Trench Coat

Cuyana Trench Coat // With Love, Amanda

Wow, can you believe we are at the end of April already? It’s definitely been a full month as well as my birthday month. For my birthday this year my hubby bought me a trench coat that I’ve been eyeing for a while now. It’s a trench from Cuyana, I’m so in love with the minimalistic look the craftsmanship of the jacket too. It is handcrafted in Italy and of a water-resistant cotton fabric – perfect for a stormy Seattle day. Also, the price tag just below $400 is not too bad either especially when you look at trenches from Burberry and similar brands easily run $1,000. Moving on from the trench I also recently purchased these high-waisted pants by Wilfred from Aritzia. I’ve said this before and I’ll keep saying it I love that high-waisted pants have made their way back to be a chic look again in women’s fashion. There’s nothing quite like a great cut high-waisted pair of pants that can elevate an outfit to next-level chic. Keep reading on to see more of this trench. xoxo loves!
