I gotta tell ya, these Carda blush sneakers from Creative Recreation weren't actually my first choice when perusing the site. But I'm so happy that I got them because how can you say no to blush toned shoes? And once I realized I had the perfect outfit to complement the sneakers, I knew I had to rock this look while exploring Seattle. And yes, it rained, so I was very happy that I had opted for sneakers and not sandals or heels.
The sneakers come from the new Creative Recreation spring line for women that I totally love. Plus, they gave me another reason to rock my overalls, which I haven't worn on the blog in a year. This post also shows that I do wear my outfits more than once! The overalls I wore back in April 2016, and you guys might remember when I wore this ribbed choker tee just a few months ago.
Lastly, we had an issue when we booked our hotel for this Seattle trip. We thought we had a room but apparently, we didn't, so we had to make a last-minute Airbnb push. At first, I was wary. I've stayed in many home stays all over, but for this time, I wanted to stay in a hotel. I'm one of those people who really loves staying in hotels. But I was pleasantly surprised by the photos of the Airbnb apartment, so we went ahead and booked. Unfortunately, when we arrived at the Airbnb, the apartment was not the apartment in the photos. We called up the listing contact and they said that indeed it was not the apartment in the photos, but that they were not going to give us a partial refund. Who does that? After explaining how misleading their posting was, they decided that they didn't want to deal with us, so they said we should leave the apartment and they'd give us a full refund.
I was taken aback that they'd rather give a full refund (and get a bad review) than give us a partial refund and be accommodating. But people do a lot of things in this world that I don't understand. Anyway, after trying desperately to find a new place last minute (and amid a coffee convention), we were finally able to get a beautiful room with a view of the Space Needle at the Crowne Plaza hotel.
But, all in all, these blush shoes though...😍
