Fall Style Guide

Top 5 Picks: Fall Style Guide

Not only do new seasons bring a change of weather, but also a change in outfits! Here is our top 5 style guide picks for women this fall:

Fall Style Guide

Casual. Calm. Collected. The three C’s that describe the Seattle fashion scene. We love any excuse to throw on our favorite pair of jeans and a cozy sweater. As for the boots, the red laces make a bold statement, while the cozy ankle cuff keeps you warm and adds a rustic touch.

Fall Style Guide

 Fringe is always in.  And whether you want to dress it up or down, these trendy boots will complete any look… Especially when paired with these hyperstretch jeggings (available in 6 colors).

Shop this look: Windowpane Edison Shirt | Karma Jegging | Bloomy Fringe Suede Boot

Fall Style Guide

Mad for plaid.  The long length of this tunic-like number is perfect for fall layering. Plus, these jeggings paired with the zip-up bootie will likely become your closet staple.

Shop this look: Plaid Kelsey Shirt | Karma Jegging | Holly Ankle Bootie

Fall Style Guide

The sweater vest is back and with a vengeance. This crew-neck number is offered in a burnt cinnamon hue with a hi-low hem and rib knit. Pair it with these boyfriend-style skinny jeans and they will be in constant rotation this fall and winter.

Shop this look: Marsha Sweater Vest | Desiree Skinny Ankle Jean | Hippie Patchwork Mule

Fall Style Guide

When tucked in, this fitted sweater will have you reminiscing of the ’90s (in a good way). Pair this with our corduroy ankle pants for the perfect fall ensemble.

Weekend Adventure | Mammoth Lakes, CA

Mammoth Lakes, CA

by Alivia Latimer

The great escape. There is something so magical and blissful about escaping your every day reality and immersing yourself deep into nature. Getting lost on a hike, stumbling upon a waterfall, eating way too many s’mores, and bonding whilst building a campfire—those are the memories in life that we will never forget.

Mammoth Lakes

This weekend spent camping in Mammoth Lakes, CA with eleven friends, both new & old, was exactly what I needed. Being that we are all photographers or models, it is needless say that we spent the entire weekend exploring and creating. Going outdoors, and getting a breath of fresh air, is quite rejuvenating for the creative mind and soul, and quite necessary in my opinion. Thanks to UNIONBAY, we had a ton of really awesome clothing products to shoot with, which definitely helped us in terms of creativity—and warmth. It was a really cold weekend! Some of our favorite items were the Cecelia Vest, the Larissa Sweater Boot, and the Sherwood Flannel Hoodie. They were so on point with the outdoorsy camping vibes we wanted to capture! Below are some images, as well as a video that truly displays the essence of what we experienced on this adventure.

Feature Friday | Becca Tapert

This week, we are featuring a Pacific Northwest native & adventurous photographer, Becca Tapert! [PSA: Becca's Instagram will make you want to plan your next weekend trip...ASAP].

Meet Becca Tapert.

Becca Tapert X UNIONBAY

Who is Becca Tapert? Can you share a quick bio with us — where you’re from, what you do, and how you got where you are 

Hey there, I’m Becca! I was born and raised in a small town about an hour north of Seattle, WA and still reside in Washington. As a young kid I was always playing around with whatever cameras there were: disposable, film camera, VHS camera, floppy disk digital cameras, nikon powershots, you name it. I always had my hands to something whether it be painting, drawing, graphic design, or photography. As I struggled to decide what to study in college, (if you’re currently in this place, it’s totally normal!!), I steered away from anything creative because I thought there was no way to make a living off of it and that art should stay as just a hobby in my life. After my first semester of college, I had a breakdown moment when my parents asked how school was going. I loved the school but was bored and uninspired with what I was studying. My parents were not surprised, to say the least, as my mom always claimed that I would be an artist someday. I quickly switched schools to study Business + Graphic Design and by the age of twenty, I had both my Associate’s and Bachelor’s Degree. Ever since graduating high school I have done freelance work in addition to my other jobs + school. About a year and a half ago, I purchased my first DSLR and started to take photos every chance I could. Today, I have been doing full-time freelance graphic design and photography for four months with no other supplementary income. I am the happiest as I ever have been because I have the opportunity to do what I love every single day.

Describe your personal style in three words.

Clean, Modern, Simple.

Becca Tapert x UNIONBAY

How did you start your career as a photographer/graphic designer?

I already shared a bit about my journey as a creative, but it became a career when I started to treat design and photography more like a job and less like a hobby. Hustling hard everyday, harder than I would at a normal job. Taking pictures every chance I could and designing as many things as possible. Putting my work out to the public via social media, specifically Instagram, was a huge tool in the beginning of my photography career. I don’t share my work on social media to gain fame or popularity or to get cool stuff, but to leverage the opportunities and exposure so that I can work with people and brands in the future. Making your hobby your profession is serious hard work. It comes with a lot of sacrifice and discipline. Saying ‘no’ to less important things so you can make room for the most important things. A lot of people have the impression that if you are a freelancer then you have tons of free time. Well, that can be true in the case of people who are comfortable and not eager to grow. But in my case, I am busier than I have ever been before, working long days, but it’s all things I am happy to be busy with.

Where do you get inspiration?

I draw a lot of my inspiration from my peers and other artists. Social media a large way I follow other artists work and stay inspired.

What are your top three favorite Instagram accounts to follow and why?

Hard question for me since I have the worst time picking favorites!


Becca Tapert x Jared Chambers

 I love his perspective on things and the simplicity yet brilliance behind his photos.


Becca Tapert x India Earl

I love the colors in her photos, they almost look like film + just the intimacy she captures between the couples in her shots.


Becca Tapert X Dan Tom

 Okay, his work speaks for itself. This dude is a wizard. Every shot is incredible, there is not one I can pick out as “less than.”

What is your favorite picture you’ve ever taken? 

 I joke around with my friend Sam that I always have the worst luck with weather conditions, lighting or whatever it may be when I have a photo shoot. Well, a few months ago Sam and I were on a road trip and one of our stops was at Monument Valley (on the UT/AZ border). As we were leaving I pulled off on the side of the road to take a picture of the road leading into the backside of the valley, a picture I had seen posted before by a friend. Well, much to my surprise, right as I positioned myself for the shot, two wild horses came out of nowhere and started walking across the road, I quickly cranked my shutter speed up and fired away. The result was this picture. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect. I was so stunned thinking to myself, “this never happens to me!”.

Becca Tapert X UNIONBAY

What piece of advice would you give someone trying to break into the world of photography?

Shoot every chance you get. Don’t make excuses about not having a subject to shoot or ‘nice’ camera. Start with the little things around your house, walking around your neighborhood, start with your smartphone. Get as many reps in as you can and the quality will come over time. Make sure you are doing photography for the right reasons. If you’re in it to gain fame or money, then you’re doing it for all the wrong reasons. Whatever your reason is, it should be strong enough to make photography never feel like work. I believe if you do what you’re truly passionate about and hustle hard, you’ll eventually get the opportunity to be compensated for doing what you love, and it will never feel like a job.

A quote to live by…

Comparing yourself to others will always cause you to regret what you aren’t, rather than allow you to enjoy who you are.
