Weekend Outfits - Long Weekend Edition

I'm home! I had a lovely birthday!

I was sung to by the entire staff of my favourite diner (and they brought me a cup of whipped cream with a candle in it), I got a tattoo gift certificate (woo!), and a gift certificate for shoes (oh yeah!). I was spoiled.

We arrived in Seattle on Friday night:
I was in my travelling clothes:
The belt is another Shi Studios item, but I didn't take a close-up of the buckle - it's a damsel with two cowboys facing off over her.

I wore my whackadoo python print leather coat all weekend:
I kind of wish I'd worn tights, but it was pretty lovely and sunny all weekend.

I changed up the top for shopping on Saturday:
Those boots were so comfy! We walked all over Seattle, hunting down vintage and consignment clothing shops. I found a great skirt and a pair of shoes.

We always go out for a nice dinner when we travel, so I brought a pretty dress:
I have already had a few glasses of wine there, so am a bit silly. "Oh, go on!" New shoes (from a few weeks ago).

Then last night we went to see "Zombieland" (loved it!), and it was colder so I did a lot of layers:
My first wear of my dark cotton trench and these cool boots this season.

A long cardi for keeping warm in the theatre:
And I dyed my hair too:
I'm tired! But a great weekend...thank goodness for a short week!
