Hui Travels: Seattle

Hello! You may or may not know that my BFF of a sister and her husband live over on the West Coast in Seattle. They’ve lived there for a few years now so we always make a point to visit as many times a year as possible. Last year I visited when I was pregnant with Madeline so she’s TECHNICALLY already been once, but this was her first official trip as a baby living on the outside world. My parents also joined us so it was an amazing and memory filled trip. Here are a few highlights from our trip. I’ve also linked ALL outfit details at the bottom if you…

Leading up to the trip, I experienced all the emotions possible. I was excited, scared, anxious, and…

Euro-Vacay Packing List

  I am deep into packing for our upcoming Euro trip (we are going to London & Ireland) and wanted to share whats in my bag! We are not checking bags so packing for 9 days abroad in only a carry on has taken some planning and a lot of coordination. Of course I have a spreadsheet. I have all the pieces of clothing in one tab and then in another have a variety of outfits I can put together with those pieces. I’m packing a ton of neutrals that I can mix & match and a few bright dresses for some color. Luckily the weather in London & Ireland is…
