Have you been to Westlake & seen The Blue Trees? They're fantastic. The project is an international art installation meant to draw attention to deforestation. We first saw them last summer & stopped by to take pics again recently.
Had I been planning a little better, I'd have coordinated with some blue of my own! Details. Instead, I'm wearing my favorite top from the Neiman Marcus+Target collaboration. It's Lela Rose & I got it at 70% off! I actually bought it full price when Emily & I went to the launch but didn't wear it & by the time I was about to, it was on sale for so.very.cheap! So I re-bought it. No harm, no foul, right?
Back to the trees...in case you're concerned about the "paint", the artist, Konstantin Dimopoulos, used a colorant made from azurite (a vibrant blue rock) & water. It's designed to wash off with the Seattle drizzle over time. The blue color is so bright it stops you in your tracks (that's the point!) I freaking love public art!
The Blue Tree installation is a must-see in Seattle. Plus, it's in the center of all downtown shopping, so you won't have far to go if you're like me.
