My favorite season in Seattle is hands down summer. 

There is
so much to do in the city especially with our incredibly long summer days. I
love being a tourist in my own city. And I love recommending new places and
sights to experience in Seattle. So my friend Ribicca and I decided to team up to bring you a few things to see in the city.

If you’re coming to Seattle soon 

and looking for where the
best views are of the city, this post is for you. Whether you’re coming for a
weekend getaway or a longer vacation, here are some sights and views that you
have to see.

Argosy Cruise

One of the best ways to see the Seattle city skyline is on
the water. 

Take a one hour cruise around Elliot Bay with Argosy Cruises. You’ll
see the complete skyline and you’ll even cruise next to the 5th
largest port in the US.

Tickets: $27

I’m heading to Italy and London for the first time in my life this Friday!
I’m beyond excited to finally see Europe and I wanted to give you guys some insight of what I’m packing for my trip.

So if you’re heading on any vacations this summer and you need some ideas of what to pack or buy to update your summer wardrobe, this post is for you.



I’m sharing 2 day looks and 2 night looks in this travel look book. And most importantly I’m sharing: 10 wearable trends to pack on your next trip this summer:

Day Look: Printed Romper 

#1: Printed Rompers

Rompers are such an easy choice for summer. I feel like I can always breathe and look stylish in a romper. The key to finding the right romper is finding one that cinches your waist correctly and shows off your shape.

#2: Platform Sandals

I love platform shoes because they give me some height!
These sandals can be worn comfortably everyday or even for dinner.

These shoes were gifted by Gee WaWa Footwear. You
can get 15% off any full priced pair of shoes with Gee WaWa Footwear with promo
code: emma15. 

Night Look: Little Black Dress



#3: One Shoulder Neckline + Ruffles


One of my favorite trends this season are the fun necklines. Whether you love a good one shoulder or off the shoulder top, these trends are flattering for every body type. I especially love this little black dress because it’s flowy and perfect for a nice dinner in Florence!

#4: Block Heels

I’m only packing one pair of heels and it’s this
pair of block heels! These are a neutral pair of heels that go with any of my
day or night outfits!

Day Look: Wearable Everyday Trends

#5 Fringe
Shorts

I’m obsessed with fringe hemlines! I was absolutely
ecstatic when I found fringe shorts. The long fringe detailing is such a fun
way to play up the traditional pair of jean shorts.

#6 Blush Purse

Blush has been a hot color all year long. I
especially love this neutral purse because it goes with casual and dressier
looks.

#7 Classic
Sneakers

The comeback of the classic sneaker has also been
strong this year. I needed a comfortable pair of walking shoes to sight see and
explore London. I was ecstatic to get my first pair of Adidas in a long time! 

Night Look: Floral Romper



#8 Floral Printed
Rompers

I’m packing two different rompers – one for an
everyday look to explore Florence or London and the other romper for either a
nice dinner or if I’m just feeling fancy!

This gorgeous floral romper was gifted by Roe Boulevard. You can directly buy this romper here.

I love this romper but I didn’t realize that the neckline opened up pretty easily. I’d recommend styling this romper with a bandeau.



#9 Block Heels

I’m only packing one pair of heels and it’s this
pair of block heels! These are a neutral pair of heels that go with any of my
day or night outfits!



#10 Bold Lips
An easy way to elevate any day or night look is to add a bold lip color. My favorite bold lip color this season is Audacious Kate by NARS.
