When we began planning our trip to Seattle we knew we wanted to visit one of the nearby islands while we were there. We’ve been to Whidbey Island on a previous trip a few years ago and loved it. We considered heading even further out to Victoria, but we decided on Bainbridge Island because it was a much shorter ferry that allowed us to get back to Seattle mid-afternoon and still have some day left to spend in the city.
Once we arrived we made our way up main street and did a bit of quick shopping. We planned to head straight to find food but couldn’t pass up stopping in Salt House Mercantile as we walked past, which had a gorgeous white-washed wood interior and some really awesome home decor and gifts. We purchased a few mementos and continued on in the hunt for food, which we found at The Harbour Public House down by the water with a spectacular view of all the sailboats tied up in Eagle Harbor. Every ingredient in the food was locally sourced and delicious and gave us the energy we needed for more walking around the town.
After lunch we followed the walking trail along the water’s edge and admired the view and the beautiful day; the morning had started out cloudy but the sun had broken through by the afternoon and you could faintly see the Seattle skyline off in the distance. We walked off our lunch and then found ourselves outside The Harbour Pub’s sister establishment, Pegasus Coffee, so we stopped in for a pick-me-up before heading back to main street for a bit more shopping, and hopped back on the ferry to Seattle.
The weather was mild, cool in the morning and warm in the afternoon, so I wore this burgundy sleeveless coat over this navy poplin shirt with my matching navy and rose gold watch and these black boots. The colors had a nautical vibe that was just right for the setting and the temperature was perfect for wearing some of my new fall items that it’s still too hot to wear in Texas. The shirt and boots are both 50% off right now so it’s a great time to get some pieces for the upcoming season!
