I recently traveled to Seattle for a conference - I wasn't presenting and my industry is not particularly formal so I just stuck to business casual looks that could double up for exploring the city, and that would be comfortable for sitting in cold rooms!

Conference was lovely, and a highlight was getting to hear a Nordstrom executive talk about their loyalty program - it was great to hear the many ways they're working to keep customers happy and make shopping fun!

These are a few of my outfits, from when I remembered to take photos.

1) The CK burgundy rain jacket has been GREAT and is in heavy rotation for my chilly Northeastern US weather - it's easy to layer pieces under it since it's not super fitted. I paired it with my faux fur infinity scarf and cerulean beret and am reminded how much I like adding a bit of frivolity to my outer wear to make cold weather dressing FUN Can't see my gray Michael Kors crossbody in this pic, but it's there too and gets a lot of mileage.

2) Old Navy dress/tunic over black Uniqlo jeans with my new burgundy ankle booties. I wish I'd brought my black gilet to layer over it... next time!

3) Piling on the J Crew to stay warm in frigid conference rooms with a wrap, turtleneck and black leggings with silver mules.

4) The view from Kerry Park. Striped Loft mock neck, maybe my favorite fall purchase! I later took a ferry to Bainbridge Island and added a cream beanie. Put a lot of miles on my Vince Camuto boots and my feet felt great (just bought a duplicate pair for when they start to show their age).

Thanks for reading and for all the outfit inspiration, Fabbers! I had such fun planning these outfits, incorporating Angie's tips and browsing the forum's WIWs!
