I think the thing I'll miss most about Portland while I'm away this summer is that in every direction you turn there is a new, wonderful place to explore. These beautiful rose gardens are just a five minute drive from my apartment and are part of the reason why Portland has been nicknamed "Rose City." For living so close, I definitely don't come here enough. Theres such a calming feeling that comes with walking down rows and rows of freshly bloomed roses. When I saw this romper I knew the rose gardens would be the perfect place to showcase it. I actually bought this romper to be my birthday outfit (Just one more week until I'm 22!) but it's too beautiful and I couldn't wait to share it.
The second this skirt was posted on the Waiste Vintage Instagram, I knew I had to have it. Since it's vintage and there was only one I knew I had to act fast so I waited all day for it to get posted online and then snatched it up before anyone else had a chance. It's no secret that my biggest weakness in fashion is a little bit of fringe but put it on a suede skirt and you can render me helpless. With all the high waisted bottoms that have been added to my wardrobe I've also developed quite the collection of crop tops. This one from Tobi ended up being the perfect addition and I'm loving this combo.
Just two more weeks until I'm off to Philly! Man, am I going to miss Portland days like these!
I can't even express to you how happy I am that it's finally warming up around here. There is nothing I love more than running around the city in a good dress and soaking up the sunshine. It's safe to say that I am not a winter girl and I feel so free when I can leave the house without a jacket in tow. With the warmer weather also comes some very exciting life happenings, in just 20 more days it'll be my birthday and in just 23 days I'll be boarding plane off to start my dream internship in Philly! I can't believe how fast time has flown by!
You may remember a this blog post a couple month ago when I introduced you all to my beautiful Minnie & George calf-hair clutch and you've probably seen the countless appearances it has made on my Instagram. Well, I'm so excited to be able to be a part of the incredible team of bloggers who are making up Minnie + George's Spring Lookbook. Hand stitched with a whole lot of love it's apparent that the talented Lori Caldwell behind Minnie + George pours her passion into each and every bag she creates. I fell in love with the deep rich of this beautiful little clutch and the nice little detail of berry calf hair peaking out from the envelope tucked corners. This clutch has accompanied me on some beautiful spring days and into the night.
