A Quick Coffee Date Outfit

I doubt there will ever be a time where I know how to dress for the baffling weather that happens right before summer. So far this week we have experienced rain, wind and even a clear 80 degree day. The weather changes not only day to day, but hour to hour. When the weather is this unpredictable, I usually end up wearing the same combination...

Goodbye Summer

And just like that, we said goodbye to summer. We are only a few days into September and I've already had to wear a sweater and turn on the kitchen light during the day due to dark cloud coverage. I couldn't be happier. There are a few things I'll remember from this summer: the Rhubarb and Saffron in Champagne ice cream from Salt & Straw, reading way too...

A Morning Stroll Through Paris

I'd be remiss if I didn't say a special thank you to Xtabay Vintage for lending me the most incredible little, black dress to traipse around the streets of Paris in....

Poppy Barley Ambassador

A short time ago I had the opportunity to meet with Kendall Barber, co-founder of Poppy Barley, a custom footwear company based in Alberta, Canada. We had initially become familiar with each other through the wonderous world that is instagram. We organized a meeting at one of my favorite local bakeries while she and her husband were in Portland. He was going to a class reunion, and...

Madewell Comes to Portland

A few weeks ago, I was walking around the Brewery Blocks when I saw it: MADEWELL! Cory pretended not to know me while I did a happy dance and snapped a few instagrams. Madewell has always seemed so perfect for Portland so I found it baffling that there wasn't one in our city. Of course I had planned to go as soon as they opened, but...

A Morning Stroll to Buckingham Palace

While we hadn't planned to go to Buckingham Palace (crowds aren't really our thing), but it seemed silly not to when we noticed on a map that we were in walking distance to it from where we were staying. We figured we would fit in a morning stroll over to it early in the morning. The air was cold so we bundled up and headed...

Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens

How beautiful it was to look out the window of our suite and gaze upon the gated entrance to Hyde Park. We had spent a few moments walking around Hyde Park Corner before tea a day or two before, but we really hadn't had the time to go deep into the park itself. Buttoning up our coats and slinging our cameras on, we started into the park...

Barons Court

We spent a lot of the time our first few days in and around our hotel while in London. Between the ridiculously lovely suite we were staying in and the crippling jet lag, it was difficult to leave. We finally had recovered enough by day four to wander beyond the realms of our hotel's district to outlying neighborhoods. We hopped on the tube and explored...
