Outfit Crush



When I pinned this outfit, I knew that it was one that I would wear and rewear and I have done just that.  Yesterday I wore a variation of these pieces, and it was perfectly effortless feeling.  The most effort that I put into it was ironing my shirt!

Help Wanted



At the end of last summer, I scored two pairs of Steve Madden sandals for a great price.  Since I've started to wear the gold pair this summer, I noticed a design flaw nuance about them which causes the straps to fall down when you walk.  Has anyone else had this problem? Anyone have an idea on how to fix it?

Obsessed

{H&M}

Although it's not even September, and by no means am I trying to rush the colder weather, but I am obsessed with this outfit.  It's really no surprise since it has two of my favorite elements: boots and stripes.  I will most definitely be looking forward to finding these pieces at H&M!

Weekend Plans



I couldn't be happier for it to be Friday, and sunny at that.  Since this week has had some highs and lows, I'm looking forward to relaxing with friends and family.  My parents are coming up so that my dad can replace my brakes in my car (thank you dad!), then Sunday I'm going to the Oregon International Air Show and Creative Connection PDX and you can come too, it's not too late to RSVP! Since I missed the last Creative Connection event, I couldn't be more excited to meet some lovely creative ladies.

Happy Friday!!

Outfit Crush


Although my boyfriend thinks they're weird, I keep being drawn to trench/military vests.  Jane's outfit is the perfect way to pull this look off as well, and I have to stay on the look out for a military vest! Any leads that you might have would be much appreciated.

Pan-Am


I'm loving this vintage nested luggage set that I brought up from my grandpa's house last weekend.  It has two smaller bags in it, and a train bag.  My favorite part are the closures, that toggle between keeping the bag closed and letting it open.  I'm looking forward to using it on a weekend trip!

One Year


It's hard to believe that it's already been a year since I started my blog.  I initially started it as some sort of creative outlet, and it has fulfilled that for me.  Over the past year, I have participated in three 30 for 30 Challenges, had several Outfit Crushes, tried out some recipes, and also crushed on a lot of other things!  It has been a great year, and I can't wait to see what's in store for the next year!

Fill in the Blank Friday


{My 22nd Birthday}

1.   My most favorite birthday was my 17th birthday.  In typical teenager fashion, I thought that everyone had forgotten my birthday, but it turned out that my parents and friends planned a surprise party for me which ended up being a lot of fun. 

2.  My worst birthday was this one is tough, for awhile it seemed like every "even" birthday (18, 20) sucked, but my 22nd and 24th birthdays broke that streak. yay!

3.  My favorite birthday memory is I don't have one that really stands out, maybe just all of the ruckus that happened on my 21st birthday?

4.  The best birthday present I've ever received was a digital camera that my parents bought me or my boyfriend's surprise limo that he rented for all of my friends and I for my 22nd birthday.

5.  The  best birthday present I've ever given was probably the Oregon Duck vs. Stanford football tickets that I bought my boyfriend, and I was so happy that we won the game too!

6.  Birthdays are a great excuse to get together with all of your friends and have a great time together!

7.  My favorite age so far has been 23.  It was a year of a lot of positive change in my life, and a year of a lot of "firsts" as well.

I hope that you all have a fantastic weekend! xoxo

Outfit Crush


Blogger was being a pest on me yesterday, so hence my delayed "outfit crush."  This outfit is brought to you by the lovely Lauren Conrad who always seems to look effortless.  Her shirt is also perfectly in line with my new obsession of oversize silk shirts that are always comfortable to wear!

Everybody Everywear - Pattern Mixing



{Top: Old Navy, Skirt: Forever 21, Boots: Steve Madden}

I was so excited that this month's EBEW was pattern mixing, since I've been waiting for an excuse to wear this shirt and skirt together.  The cognac boots also had to make an early appearance on my blog again, because it was a little too cold and breezy to have completely bare legs.  I'm really ready for the high temperature to be in the 80s at least!  Don't forget to check out everyone else's outfits at EBEW.

Trusty Gingham Shirt


{Button-Up & Shorts: Forever 21, Sandals: Steve Madden}

I'm finally getting around to posting my take on this week's outfit crush.  It's become evident to me that I need another pair of white shorts or my first pair of white pants since I've been gravitating toward them this summer.  Since it's August, have you found yourself gravitating toward any pieces in your closet?  Have a safe and wonderful weekend!

Outfit Crush


I was instantly inspired by this outfit that I found on Pinterest, and actually recreated it with some similar pieces.  Check back tomorrow to see my take on this outfit.  Happy Wednesday!

Newly Acquired



I recently acquired a few new things for my apartment due to some sad circumstances, but I'm happy to give them a happy home.  This vintage poster of an old Portland is probably my favorite thing that I got, and I can't wait to frame it.  I also got six of these crates, and am using the other four for storage around my apartment, and love these two for an end table.

Wishlist: Forever 21




Although Forever 21 is inexpensive, I've been trying to not spend money lately, so these are the pieces that I'm currently lusting after.  I especially love the black and white striped shirt since it reminds me of an Equipment shirt that I've also been wanting.  I will most likely have to bite the bullet and buy it!
