I'm so thankful that my boyfriend's family has welcomed me with open arms since the beginning of our relationship and it's so fun celebrating holidays and events together. We went to his aunt and uncle's house in Kirkland, WA this year to celebrate Thanksgiving and it was a great time. (Don't mind the awkward photo of my boyfriend and I, but it was the only one we took together the whole weekend.)


Outfit Crush

One of the advantages of working across the street from the mall is that I'm also across the street from JCrew.  I love walking by the mannequins and seeing how each of them is styled and generally gain some sort of outfit inspiration. That's how I felt when I saw this look online, it immediately made me start thinking of ways I could pull the look together. (It also ties in one of my latest obsessions!)




I've never been much of a hat person, let alone beanie person.  But I wore a hat a few weeks ago, and have lately been drawn to beanies. I think there is a way to wear them in a way that's less "grunge" and more chic-trying-to-stay-warm plus they help keep you warm.  These are a couple of my favorite ways I've seen them worn.


Trials and Tribulations of Curly Hair

Would you believe me if I told you that in middle school I styled my hair with a bucket o' gel from the good old dollar store? Thankfully I've come a long way from those awesome middle school years filled with braces and "barrel bangs,"but I still haven't found the perfect hair product combination.

I currently use Dove shampoo and conditioner and also styling cream but I'm not 100% happy with the look still. I have naturally curly hair, but like to use a curling iron to define the curls. Please feel free to share any advice you have for fine curly air products or tools!

Outfit Crush

Happy Wednesday everyone! I've started thinking about what I want to wear for Thanksgiving. I'll be with my boyfriend's family and we all like to keep it somewhat casual, because no one likes to feel as stuffed as the turkey after dinner.  I'm considering wearing a pair of super comfortable black skinny jeans from Old Navy with an oversized sweater.  I am loving this black on black outfit with a statement necklace that is a great balance of comfort and style.


Remember when?

Remember when I went to Florence with some awesome pals? Well it was a fun and great weekend filled with a walk along the coast, salt water taffy, Oregon football, girl talk, and much more. I wanted to share some pictures from the weekend. Love these girls and can't wait to make it an annual weekend trip!


Outfit Crush

Last fall I remember pining over a faux fur vest for virtually the entire season and beyond, but just couldn't decide if I would wear it that often.  After seeing several people wearing them not only in downtown Portland, but also bloggers sporting them again I think I may need to buy one this year!  Once I find one that I like, I think the first time I wear it will be very similar to this look ... classy but updated.



This weekend I'm going to Florence, OR along with eight of my pals.  We're staying at my friend Nicole's house and I couldn't be happier to get in some quality G-Time that will include cheering on the Ducks, making cards, hiking, beach yoga, and of course eating.  I hope you all have a safe and wonderful weekend!
