Spring Terracota Makeup | Tulips in Skagit Valley 2019

Questions I get asked the most are what to pack or wear and where to go in Seattle. If you’re new and here on my blog for a travel guide, then you’re at the right place. I have a Seattle Travel Guide blog post where I share with you all of the must-visit places in Seattle, and if you want my best list, check out my 2018 list, here! If you have a car and love nature, check out my Hike Washington blog post series. I will insert direct links to some of the best hikes I’ve hiked at the end of this post, so make sure to read it to the end!

This week’s video is my first official makeup video where I share with you from start to finish how I achieve this spring terracotta makeup look.  Watch it below:

Since tulips come in all colors of the rainbow, I do suggest you keep things minimal and let the flowers shine. Opt for solid color and long, flowy, and a bit dressy outfits. The most important tip is to check for the weather before heading North since it can get quite chilly there. Here I just wear a midi-length dress, a straw hat, and a pair of white sneakers. You are no longer required to wear rain boots, but feel free to! Avoid florals and high heels!

OUTFIT: URBAN OUTFITTERS dress | SAN DIEGO HAT COMPANY boater hat (bought at a store in Hawaii, similar here) | SUPERGA sneakers


Tulips’ peak bloom lies in the entire month of April. So if you’ve missed it this year, do consider booking a flight to Seattle next year! Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is where you want to head to as it is just about an hour drive North of Seattle. There are Roozengaarde which I’ve been to twice now and Tulip Town, both located in Mt. Vernon. Check out my tulip photos in Roozengaarde last year, here.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the photos! Spring in Washington is so beautiful, from cherry blossoms (the light pink ones – best in at The Quad at UW, and the darker pink ones are seen everywhere in the city), to daffodils, dogwoods,

Before I forget, don’t forget to check out my Flower Guide in Washington, here, so you will be prepared for next year if you do plan to make it to flower fields here in Washington.
