A few weeks ago, Mr Jean of all Trades and I took advantage of the last of the warm weather and strolled through Cal Anderson Park in the heart of Capitol Hill. The Hill is a vibrant neighborhood, and is the place where we both lived when we started dating. Our first shared apartment was here. I still miss having nightlife and restaurants in my backyard, but we traded it in for an actual backyard. Fortunately we’re only 15 minutes away.

I liked how cool and casual my husband was on this sunny afternoon. He wears a lot of suits so seeing him in jeans is unusual. He seems comfortable in them. I especially like his choice of shirt: pink plaid.
Usually he’s decked out in black and I’m colorful. Today, I was in deep purple and black. But true to my style, I added a pop of color. My apple green purse.

I love supporting local. My skirt is a design by UNA, which is a Seattle-based company. I’ve worn this before, on a cooler day. I also have a striped skirt by UNA and a black dress.

Nice! Looks like it was a lovely day to be out. Great casual outfits – for the look and for the deals!
Thanks! It was great. I’m afraid I won’t be seeing a lot of sunny days like that for a while. We got some great deals. And even UNA is well-priced. The skirt was $80. More than I usually pay, but it’s made right here in Seattle!
Your casual look is so pretty, Jean – and your husband is very handsome! I like to shop at local stores too. Thanks for sharing your look with Visible Monday!
Thanks Patti! It’s a comfy look! I agree with you–my husband is handsome. Of course, I’m biased 🙂
What a fun day! Don’t you just love Capitol Hill? Sounds like you guys have so many fun memories there. You’re such a gorgeous couple!!! ~Sarah
Thanks Sarah! I do love Capitol Hill. Lots of things to do and unique style inspiration everywhere I turn.
You know, it’s so nice that your hubby will let you post pics of him. Handsome fella! Sounds like a nice day. Hope you’re having fun with your mom!
Well, he’s shy, but I can sometimes convince him. I promise not to use his name so hiw coworkers can’t find him and tease him about it 🙂 I’m picking my parents up from the airport tomorrow! Can’t wait.
Enjoy the visit with your Mom and Dad…..I hear they are holding a workshop…..your Dad will work while your Mom will shop (or should that “read” dance).
How did you know about the workshop? 😉 It’s true. Lots of working (on my dad’s part) and shopping (on my mom’s). We’re having fun and my place is taking shape. I’ll do a “before and after” blog post. Full wallet before. Empty wallet after 😉
More compliments on a Huz who will dress for the day! Almost as cute as you … what a couple. Our last home was in Seattle before we had to move south for the parents … I miss EVERYTHING there. Thanks for dressing and posting!
Yes, I’m proud of him and his style! Seattle is a fun city, isn’t it. I hope you get to visit now and then and enjoy it. Thanks for commenting!
