Tucked away, just off the main street of the historic Georgetown neighborhood in Seattle, is a little known haven for unique and one of a kind goods from collectors, independent artists, designers and makers. The Georgetown Trailer Park Mall is one of my favorite spots in Seattle for a weekend shopping trip.

Each trailer houses a permanent, independently run shop. With a mission of the promotion and advancement of sustainable, locally-sourced, up-cycled, reused and handmade products, the Georgetown Trailer Park Mall is well worth a stop for some treasure hunting.

Combine a shopping trip to Georgetown Trailer Park Mall with brunch at the Hangar Cafe, record browsing at Georgetown records, a visit to an art gallery and a stop at Fran's Chocolates, and you've got yourself the perfect Georgetown Saturday Bohème!

Georgetown Bohème

I recently met up with my friend Jenn of HelloRigby in Georgetown on a weekday (which I don't recommend, since the Georgetown Trailer Park Mall is only open weekends - whoops!) . We meandered around the the Georgetown Trailer Park Mall, made plans to come back when it was open (Saturdays 12-7, Sundays 11-4) and enjoyed conversation over coffee at All City Coffee.

For our visit to Georgetown, I decided on a recently thrifted dress from Value Village. A Calypso St. Barth silk bohème dress (similar), that has me dreaming of our upcoming honeymoon to the Greek Islands, was decidedly perfect for the occasion.

Calypso St. Barth's mission was to provide the Calypso St. Barth woman with a bohemian chic wardrobe that captured her "joie de vivre" spirit and met her travel needs. If you haven't heard, Calypso St. Barth recently went out of business (tear!) and this day seemed the perfect day to pay homage to one of my favorite summer and vacation holiday brands. You can bet I will be searching thrift stores for Calypso St. Barth for years to come! I will miss you immensely Calypso St. Barth!

I styled my Calypso St. Barth dress with a standby-favorite pair of Nine West pumps (similar) that have that perfect low, chunky heel for making a statement, pure delightful comfort and are also quite on trend. A new-favorite bag, a Want Les Essentials Shoulder Bag (similar), held all my necessities (keys, wallet, phone, lip balm) for the day.

Since it is still a bit chilly on most days in Seattle, I grabbed my favorite Aritzia cardigan sweater (similar). However, the sun decided to make an appearance and I didn't even need it, so around the waist it went. Sorry sweaters, but I'm happy to see you packed away until Autumn!

My With 212 Bleeker Satchel Bag, sent to me by Ivory Clasp, was what I used to put all my day's shopping finds in. An oh-so-chic bag perfect for travel, commuting or on the go, it has quickly become one of my go-to bags.

Ivory Clasp is a handbag subscription program that delivers stylish handbags to you monthly or quarterly. With a super busy schedule, it's a great option. After taking a quick style quiz, a stylist selects an in-season handbag, based on your results, to send to you. Every month or quarter a new handbag arrives on your doorstep (and you get to keep the bag!)

I chose to wear a stack of The Shine Project Bracelets c/o. A cause driven business, dedicated to changing the future of inner-city American youth, The Shine Project helps students pay their way through college and pursue a brighter future, while employing them to hand make jewelry.

When purchasing from The Shine Project, you are wearing more than just a new piece of jewelry, you are wearing change and igniting hope. Yay fashion for good!

For earrings, I chose a pair of Nickel & Suede Champagne Shimmer Leather Earrings c/o. These earrings are so beautiful! With lots of shimmer, the super lightweight and soft, creamy metallic champagne colored leather looks good with anything and everything. They are also nickel-free, which is a must for me.

Nickel & Suede is known for their lightweight leather accessories and unique pieces that are perfect for everyday. Redefining the statement earring, Nickel & Suede leather earrings are made from high quality materials. The design, assembly and shipping are all done in their Kansas City headquarters.

AND the Nickel & Suede Champagne Shimmer Leather Earrings that I'm wearing are the current seasonal favorite, aka the earring of the month for May 2018! Which means they're on sale! Normally $25, they are currently on sale for only $18, but only through the end of the month!

My final accessory for the day was a Target Rancher Hat (similar) for an #OOTD a la bohème. Are you as much a fan of wearing a hat these days as I am? From summer hats to fedoras to boat hats, I want all the hats please and a different one for each style and day.

Happy almost Summer! See you in Georgetown!
