Today is a floral upon floral kind of day friends! Last week, Cortney, from The Grey Edit, and I, ventured an hour outside of Seattle to visit the Skagit Tulip Fields. I mean, why would anyone ever travel to Amsterdam when you have fields of tulips in your backyard! In anticipation of the trip, I headed to Nordstrom to pick up some gorgeous floral pieces to truly captures all things spring and floral. This ASTR the Label puff sleeve top needs to be bumped to the top of your spring must-haves list!
SHOP THE LOOK:
I had to style the casual look with my favorite spring Woven Mules – I cannot say enough good things about these mules. Not only are they super comfortable, but you can wear them anywhere and all day! They also come in white which has been a tempting purchase for me! To finish off the look, I grabbed my favorite neutral Cat Eye Sunglasses and this new Topshop Bag top handle bag! I love Topshop bags – they are so easy and always under $50!! This one styles as a crossbody too!
SKAGIT TULIP FIELDS
If you are in Seattle, or are coming to visit, and want to visit the Skagit Tulip Fields, here are a few things to consider for your trip! Coming from Chicago where flowers don’t bloom until June, this was certainly something to see! If you can make time for it in your schedule, I’d highly recommend it – it’s certainly something to see!
- To avoid lines, traffic and lots of people, try to go during the week. We went on a Tuesday and it was very comfortable and parking was easy.
- The festival will go on from now until April 30 – so plan accordingly!
- Watch the forecast – it was a beautiful day when we went, but the day before it hand rained. All the fields were REALLY muddy. Come prepared with the right shoes 🙂
- Entry costs $7 to get in and you get access to to re-entry if you leave (to change your clothes like we did).
- This website is super helpful and can easily direct you to the fields – there are few different ones that should all be in blooom right now.
- GET the kettle corn! There was a little food station so we picked up some kettle corn and finished it before we got home 🙂
