What to Wear When You Travel: 3 Chic and Comfortable Airport Outfits

Jen Jedda Travel Outfit

Another crossover blog from my shop’s blog that I know you will find equally riveting…well, at least you will find some good tips. *** So you are all packed for your trip, and you even put that extra pair of underwear in your carry on just in case your luggage gets lost in route (smart, btw). But have you thought about what you are wearing on the plane yet? Frankly, my travel outfit typically is a last minute decision, but it is an important one. For both my long haul and domestic flights comfort is key.  BUT I don’t want to look like I went from the bed or the gym to the airport, so choosing…

Fashionable Summer Travel Accessories: My Packing Essentials

Essential Travel Accessories

I wrote this piece for my shop blog for our Summer Travel Series, but definitely thought it applicable and useful over here too!  Plus I wanted to show off the pics I took for it while in San Jose in California for my 103 year old great aunt’s funeral. *** Summer time is travel time! And even if your vacation plans don’t necessarily have you hanging on the beaches of Ibiza with the Euro-chic, packing accessories that are functional and stylish will help dress up and switch up your travel attire.  As I pack for my month long trip to Southeast Asia (Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam), these five accessories will take packing…

Adventures Stuck on an Elevator!

**Warning to reader:  This is not the most remarkable of life events, but I determined it was significant enough to warrant memorialization in a blog post. Warning complete. Onward.  ** One of the many great things about my little business…and about life…is the unexpected happenings that make somedays seem a bit like one of those “jack-in-the-box” toys. It starts out routine enough, like the innocent winding of the toy’s lever. I hypnotize myself with the activities of the day as if focused on a tiny box playing charming carnival-like music..and then *POP*!  A surprise! And like the little colorfully clad man that springs up from his hiding spot, it jolts me back for a moment before delighting me. Such was the case…

Germany Through the Eyes of Favorite Seattle Style Blogger, Brittany from Pumps & Plaid

Brittany in Germany

There are many fun things about my job. Clearly one of them is getting to pursue my passion for travel which also helps me keep up this little travel blog here. Another is meeting creative and inspiring people around the world and, in this case, getting to collaborate with some along the way. Earlier this month one of Seattle’s favorite style and lifestyle bloggers, Brittany Streissguth of Pumps & Plaid, did a post featuring my shop and entrepreneurial story. Prior to the interview I already admired her sense of style and the splash that her one year old blog has quickly created on Seattle’s fashion scene (Seattle Refined named her one of…

Shopping in Paris – My Fave Five

Where to Shop in Paris

When I dream of Paris, my first thoughts are always of fresh, warm baguettes, sitting outside sipping rosé at a charming café, adorable French men in their chic neck scarves and the sparkling Eiffel Tower…and not necessarily in that order. And whenever I arrive in my beloved City of Light, these are the things I first set out to do (you can decide if that is a pun or not). Once satisfied the next important element of my Parisian experience is always hitting the rues with credit cards from companies in hand that have been properly notified of my impending international spending spree. It is time to shop! Having just returned…
