Faded Blues and a Leather Vest

Blue Dress and a black Leather Dress with Booties

We can already see the change in trees and the light fading in the evening. The sun doesn't come up as early and even though we have nice hot days, the nights are cooler and the mornings are hazy. We all know what's to come. It's one of the reasons most people decide to move here. FALL.

It's right around the corner, trying to sneak up on all of us but locals know it's coming. We can see it and though we know it's still a good few weeks away, it's there and it's waiting.

Travel Bug: David Hill Vineyard and Winery, Forest Grove, Oregon

Growing up in Oregon, you're surrounded by old country roads. Any way you go, you're 10-20 minutes to farmland. In addition to farmland, you also have peach trees, blueberry farms, marionberry farms... and wineries.

Yellow Elephants and a Black Mini Skirt

Through out the past few year I've weeded out a lot of printed tees and tanks. This one remains though it's only worn on the weekends out of fear it's not professional enough. This past week I broke out of my shell and wore it to work with a black skirt from The Loft and I think it was pulled off rather nicely.

2017 Erin Condren Planner

This is a story about how I broke down and bought an Erin Crondren planner. They're spendy. I researched for a whole month on different types of planners I should consider getting and finally bit the bullet and ordered mine back in June.

Off the Shoulder Sweaters and Skinnies

Pink off the Shoulder sweater with Black Skinny Pants

Happy Labor Day! This outfit was from last week and I was tricked. It started out as a cloudy Summer morning and burned off by 10am! I was so over heated! It's an adorably comfortable off-the-shoulder sweater (details below). I love the color. However, within 2 minutes of wearing it I got jam on it from my toast! So please pardon the wash spot and my dining room table. It quickly turned into a craft table this week.

Sunday Morning Mini Waffles & Birch Sryup

Despite my recent posts, this past month has been really hard for me. You see, I lost my Grandmother. My Memére, as we've always called her. She was a lot of things. Brave, ambitious, an entrepreneur, a socialite. A Queen in our house and hearts. I've cried more times than I can to admit to and the pain comes in waves. Right now, I feel mentally prepared to open up but not go to deep today.
