My hand-me-up sweater

Pass it on, sisters!

One of my favorite things about being one of five sisters is having the opportunity to get so many hand-me-downs/ups. I say "ups" because I'm the second oldest so my younger sisters hand their unwanted clothes up to me. :-) There have actually been times I've given a younger sister hand-me-downs then had it handed back up to me and I get to fall in love with the piece all over again. Sweet sisterhood.

Some fabulous hand-me-ups

My youngest sister cleaned out her closet before going back to college this fall and I jumped at the opportunity to see what she had ready to go to Goodwill. I probably took half of it. She has such classy taste in clothes I ended up loving way too much of what she was tossing out! Among the treasures: A comfy knit sweater (featured below), a white hobo bag, a blue striped tank with floral lace detail on the front and a really cool off-the-shoulder top with a woman's face on it. You'll see that one featured in a post eventually. :-)

My boyfriend took the picture above when we were at Gasworks park the other day. We were driving around and I mentioned I had never been there before. He immediately switched lanes, took a right and drove me straight there! If you haven't been, GO. It has one of the most incredible views of the city.

One of the most beautiful cities ever. I love Seattle
The sweater is comfy and with the half-sleeves it isn't too warm for the beginning of fall

What other parks should I check out in Seattle? I swung by Alki once but would love to go back and spend some time there. Do you have any favorites?


  1. Love Gasworks Park! Kerry Park up in Queen Anne has a gorgeous view of the Space Needle granted it's a really small park. I convinced my guy friend to propose there to his girlfriend because it's just so pretty. haha.. And I love going to Discovery Park (Magnolia) and Volunteer Park (Cap Hill) as well. :)

  2. Sharing clothes with sisters is the best! I have one older sister and we do hand me ups and hand me downs as well. =)


    I hope you have a great week!
