What to Wear

End-of-Summer OOTD

Just because the season is coming to an end doesn’t mean you have to stop wearing all your favorite summer clothes at once. In fact, I’d say you should wear them as long as you can—soon enough it will be time to start layering for the cold.

HERO

Tees | Shorts | Platform sandals

Clare (pictured here) and I are all about sticking to a neutral aesthetic when it comes to a go-to outfit. The weather this day was just warm enough for shorts but not too hot for a comfy tee. Plus, her chunky sandals are both fashionable and comfortable for walking around town.

Back-to-School Outfit Ideas

One of the things, actually the only thing, that helps me get excited for going back to school is picking out outfits to work while strutting down the halls.

I know that picking out what to wear in the morning can be a bit stressful and sometimes downright impossible. Hopefully I can inspire y’all with these back-to-school outfit ideas!

OOTD: Transition Wear

As the school year slowly approaching us, so is cooler weather. For some of you, this might include more layers; for others, you might have sun all year round. Either way, I hope this look gives you guys some inspiration for the cooler weather that’s to come!

HERO

Baseball Hat | TankJeans | Flannel | Vans

In this look, I decided to tie my flannel around my waist since it was pretty warm out, with a lightweight tank and comfy jeans. I wore a baseball hat for both style and sun protection, and added Vans—a nice shoe to walk around in.

Living in Portland, I have the luxury of growing up in a city that was built around a river—hence the name “port” “land”. Portland’s skyline is always changing, but no matter where you are along the river, you will always have bridges in the background.

One of my favorite places for photo shoots is the Eastbank Esplanade on the east side of Portland. It’s along the river on the opposite side of downtown. Will and I decided it would be fun to take some photos there and share a little bit more of Portland with you guys.

Back-to-School Inspiration

As much as we hate to admit it, back-to-school season is upon us. But with it comes cute new supplies and my personal fave…outfits! So today I figured I’d show y’all some quick BTS outfit inspo!

My friend Sam (pictured below) and I are both pretty girly with a flair of bohemian fierceness—is that even a thing? Haha. So we decided to showcase that in our outfits.

OOTD: Little Sister Edition

In a not-so-surprising twist, it turns out my sister has amazing style—just like her older sister! She came with me to run errands recently and I just loved the outfit she chose.

HERO

She wore a loose, lightweight, oversized tee with ripped, light-wash jeans and Timberland-inspired boots and carried a nude bucket bag—so of-the-moment right now. Love.

My Favorite Fall Booties

We may still be taking beach trips and soaking up the sun, but believe it or not, fall is right around the corner. What better way to get ready for autumn than by shopping for some new fall shoes? Here are three of my favorite booties for the upcoming season.

#1. BP. ‘Daphne’ Bootie

To me, this first pair just screams fall. They seem like a simple and durable pair of boots, but there’s still character with their earthy brown hues and that cute front strap. The chocolate color is my personal favorite, but they also come in black and navy.

#2. Steve Madden ‘Grroupie’ Gore Bootie

I’ve been dying to get a pair of Chelsea boots and fell in love with these! In fact, they’re currently in my shopping cart. I love the classic, all-black look, and I know they’ll match absolutely everything.

#3. BP. ‘Trott’ Bootie

Writing this post is dangerous: I just added these booties to my cart as well … oops! The red color is just too good, and the heel is perfect for anyone looking for a bit of extra height.

It’s summer: it’s hot outside, and nothing feels better than a loose, breezy romper on my sweaty bod. By now you all know that I’m obsessed with Free People, and this white crochet romper by them is one of my faves!

One of the reasons I love this romper so much is because of the open back and ribbon detailing. Unfortunately, this baby is sold out but there tons of other cute dresses and rompers from Free People. You can find similar styles herehere, and here.

Hot-Weather Leather

I don’t know about you guys, but the weather has been ridiculously hot lately, especially for us Oregonians who are used to rain and temps varying from 50 to 70 degrees in the summer! Lately we’ve had a hot streak of 80- to 100-degree temperatures, but after 39 days with no rain, Portland finally got some summer showers that lowered things down to between 70 and 80.

So after I’d finally gotten used to the hot weather … I got cold and ended up wearing a leather jacket at night.

I think everyone can agree that in the midst of summer, we tend to spend more time outdoors. While I definitely enjoy typical outdoor summer activities like swimming and hiking, one of my favorite pastimes is spending time in the garden.

Garden

Inspired by just that, today’s outfit is perfect for sipping tea in the garden or attending a daytime soiree. The boots add just a touch of edge.
