I like you, Portland

You know that feeling you get when you realize you’ve eaten far too much food in one sitting but there’s still a few bites left so you might as well finish your plate but, oh my, now I’m feeling sort of faint but oh heck the waiter is bringing out the dessert menu now and “carpe diem” let’s order the peach-huckleberry cobbler because it sounds fun and delicious?  Familiar with that feeling at all?  Well, that perfectly describes my trip to Portland.

Every day we overate, but I wouldn’t change a thing.  It was wonderful in every way possible.  I’m still sorting through all my photos but will post a little photo diary very soon.  A HUGE thanks to the 3 LOVELY ladies who did guest blogs.  LOVE YOU.

Oh and that photo up there?  Had to wear loose clothing to meals…pants wouldn’t button.  You know the deal.  Wearing an Alexa Chung for Madewell dress, J. Crew blouse, J. Crew sweater, Jeffrey Campbell boots, and an Alexa Chung for Madewell clutch (similar here).

Attempting Geek Chic

Yesterday, I borrowed my friend’s Nikon dslr.  What a treat!  I use the term “borrowed” very loosely because I still have it and don’t plan on returning it anytime soon.  Kidding (kind of).  So what was the first thing I decided to do with it?  Take photos of m’self obviously.  Cue: ego inflation.

Just kidding, I mostly took photos of my dog but since this is not a dog blog, I’ll stick with some outfit shots.  I’m really into collared shirts and feel extra sophisticated when they’re buttoned all the way to the top.  If you didn’t know any better, you’d think I was on my way to calculus class or a very important business meeting.  But no!  That’s the power of a collared shirt, my friend.

Next time I plan on adding thick-rimmed glasses, a pleated skirt, and argyle socks.  Then my geek chic look would be totally complete.
