friday's fancies #64


white out

This week's Friday's Fancies is all about embracing the color white. I rarely, if ever, 
wear white, but I'm getting it all out of my system creating these outfits. 
I'm definitely in need of some blue polish and this one, in a cornflower blue, is so pretty!

This look includes:
Boxy V-Neck Tee from La Garconne
Baja Stripe Skirt from Madewell

Have a wonderful weekend!

friday's fancies #63


memorial day weekend!

I am loving white jeans lately. I probably would never wear them in real life, but here in 
blog world I can pretend. We are having some seriously gloomy weather here in Portland, 
so it looks like my dreams of wearing sandals again have been crushed...for now anyway.

the brave enough tour


Almost a week and a half ago, I finally went to a Sara Bareilles concert (I've been wanting to 
see her in concert since high school).  To say it was amazing is an understatement. I loved it 
and love her even more! Seriously, she needs to be my new best friend.

The picture on the right, that's when she sang a song from The Little Mermaid. Awesome right?!

I pre-ordered her new album today, which comes out July 16th. I definitely think you should too.
You can pre-order on itunes or here to also receive an exclusive song with the album!

stripe my fancy

This week's Friday's Fancies is all about stripes, and who doesn't love stripes!
Let's be honest, I mainly planned this entire outfit around the shoes. 
I need a pair of those in my closet right now. The only question though, what color?

This outfit includes:
Striped Sweater from Zara
Bucket Bag from J.Crew
Franco Sarto Venezia from Piperlime

Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

wishing wednesday #16


This week, I'm wishing for and loving tropical leaf prints!

loving palm print

I don't know if it's because I'm wanting summer weather or because my hometown has palm trees 
or what, but I am loving this print. It's kind of like a prettier, tropical version of camo where 
we should all have drinks with umbrellas in hand.

What do you think of this print? Loving it or would rather pass on this trend?

Picture includes:
Joie Gaelle Top from Piperlime

weekend wear
After creating this outfit, all I want is for it to be a warm weekend and to have one of those red, white, 
and blue popsicles. Doesn't this outfit remind you of one of those? I may just have to go and 
find myself one. Here's to having a fabulous weekend! 

This outfit includes:
Hepcat Shades in Blue from Madewell
Smocked Top from J.Crew

weekend fun


This past weekend was a really great one. Saturday, I spent the day at the beach and on Sunday, 
I went to the farmer's market, had brunch with a friend, saw Iron Man 3, and then did a 
little shopping.  It was quite a full weekend, but perfect with some truly fantastic weather. 
So for those who don't follow me on instagram, just thought I'd share my awesome day at the beach.

Cannon Beach is definitely my favorite!

If you ever go to the coast and take Highway 26, stop at Camp 18. Home of the best pancakes
with marionberry syrup (in picture) and giant cinnamon rolls.

It's been a year since my favorite coffee shop opened up a location at Cannon Beach, and I
finally got my chai at the beach! Made it that much better. Stop by Insomnia if you get a chance!
(you can even buy their chai online, which I highly recommend.)

Mirror lens sunnies are definitely becoming a big trend. Honestly, my feelings for these
sunglasses went from love to finding them obnoxious and back again. So, I decided to buy a
cheap pair at Target. I think they're really fun to wear! Maybe I love them after all.
And who doesn't love having dinner outside with a piña colada. Perfect ending to a perfect day.

Hope all of you had a wonderful weekend too!
