Sequins & Stripes: A Sunday Adventure Day 29

Early* this morning Sequins, Stripes and our good friend Plaid all piled into the car and headed over to the Skagit Valley Yearly Tulip Festival to look at some flowers, have some lady bonding time, and take a bajillion pictures. Also, side note, Sequins definitely drove us home. Because she’s awesome like that. Check out some of our pictures! The titles, if you hover over them, will tell you which one of us took it. Enjoy!

This is what happens when I don't remember I zoomed my camera in to take the previous shot!

Sequins Outfit:

Shirt: Sojourner/ Vest Scarf & Shoes: Thrifted/ Shoes: H&M/ TIghts: Gift

Stripes’ Outfit:

Shirt: Target/ Jeans: Gap/ Shoes: Toms/ Sweatshirt: Aerie/ Coat: The North Face (seriously awesome raincoat….if you’re in the market for one, this one is great!)


*So only two of us (*cough cough* Stripes and Plaid) thought 8 am was early…Our lovely Sequins is much more adjusted to such grown up hours and was bright eyed and fully awake by that point in the morning. The other two of us needed some more wake up time and coffee.

When everybody else cancels on you at literally the last minute (valid reasons or not), sometimes it’s okay to let them and just take your best friend in the whole world on an adventure to find tulips. We didn’t use a map, or google, or any planning (and believe you and me–I’m definitely a planner). We winged it and followed traffic, which brought us to Tulip Town.

Definitely not the biggest tulip farm or show in the county, but it was one of the campiest. Anywhere I find a faux-Statue of Liberty, I find campy.

Mexican food afterwards, followed by a bottle of wine (or two) with some friends while we catch up on Game of Thrones (anyone else as obsessed? I’ve read the books and I keep getting so shocked when they deviate! I’ll gasp and be all “Well it was implied…..!!”

All in all, good day. Hopefully friends who are sick (nudge nudge Stripes) will actually calm their lives down and devote themselves to healing, instead of daily pushing themselves. And hopefully friends with “mini emergencies” (nudge nudge Plaid) will always remember that treating me to Dairy Queen fries with flamethrower since in a ten minute picnic excursion will actually excuse you from bailing.

And hopefully next week we all get to go! Again! To bigger fields!

Oh also, if you look carefully at the next photo, you’ll see my black dress has undergone a bit of a transformation. It’s old version was already borderlinen too short, so when it shrunk in the wash I made an executive decision that replacing it with one very similar is a-okay. Welcome to the fold, new and appropriately-lengthed dress!

Dress; Thrifted/ Shoes: Soda/ Keffiyeh: Palestine/ Earrings: Sojourner

Take care, my friends! Oh and enjoy this little throwback from last year’s trip, when Stripes was a healthy-goose. Please, feel free to laugh at the horrible hair day I was enjoying (I was growing out a mohawk. It was an awkward phase)
