Guest Post: Blue Paper Lanterns

While I am off on vacation this week, I asked a couple of my favorite bloggers from around the country to share how where they live might affect what they wear. Mostly because I want to know, and this was the easiest way to get them to tell me...

Today, it's Kimmie from the Seattle area, who is often accompanied by one of the cutest little guys I've ever seen in her daily photos. Seriously, the kid definitely inherited his mom's fantastic style! Make sure you check her out over at Blue Paper Lanterns!


Hi This Life Redefined readers! I'm Kimmie from Blue Paper Lanterns.

Tara asked me to share some "Northwest style" with you.. and you may look at these picture and scratch your head. It's probably not the most stylish outfit you've seen, but it's casual and comfortable and very fitting for the Pacific Northwest's laid back culture.

Most people will stereotype us PNW folk to be very green and eco-conscious, which translates into our clothes. Lots of REI, Birkenstocks and zip-off cargo pants. We're not the most fashion-forward bunch, but there's still lots of know, like organic cotton vs. non-organic cotton. Haha, just kidding. We dress just like you...except maybe warmer. We had the hottest day of the summer over the weekend when we finally hit 80 degrees, but not before going back down to the 60s and rain on Monday. Shorts are really a waste of money here.

Thank you so much for sharing, Kimmie! And this is where I admit to you all that I used to live in the land of flannel, too, but my flannel was less Pacific Northwest, and more farmer chic. Minus the chic part of things.
I'm pretty sure I've burned any photographic evidence of that time in my life, but if I come across any pictures that survived, I may consider sharing them with you somewhere down the road.
