Mom style: A weekend in Seattle

I’m heading to Seattle this weekend (BY MYSELF! WHAT?) for some serious friend-visiting time and, naturally, that takes a lot of outfit planning. For me, shoe planning comes first, outfit planning follows. Here’s a peek at some of my shoe selections for the weekend away…

For Friday night dinner with friends:
I was looking for something casual that I could wear on the drive down and head straight to dinner in. Pairing these with my favorite jeans and a tee, with a cute little wool tweed blazer on top. Add messy hair (due to road rage during the drive), a long gold necklace and I’m set. (Splendid Cargo Sandals, $70)

For wine tasting on Saturday:
To be paired with a casual jersey dress and a denim jacket on Saturday for an afternoon wine tasting in Woodinville, these sweet little flat espadrilles will do the trick. They’re casual and comfortable, while also giving me a pulled together look that I’m usually lacking thanks to having a 4-year-old often hanging on my hip. (Sperry Top-Sider Hope Sandals, $60)

For Capitol Hill on Saturday night:
I might regret wearing heels to Capitol Hill on Saturday night. Let’s try that again. I will regret wearing heels to Capitol Hill on Saturday night. But, these are too cute to resist. I love that the back of the shoe comes up high on my ankle an that the wedge isn’t too crazy-high. I’m wearing these with a fun pair of patterned cropped pants on Saturday night. (Nicole Marge Wedges, $109)

For the drive home on Sunday morning:
Sunday morning requires all of the comfort I can muster. I know that the drive home to Bellingham is going to feel long, long, long and I want to be as comfy as possible. I’m a sucker for a pair of colorful kicks with a retro vibe, just like these lifesavers. (The North Face Dipsea 78 Trainers, $80)
