How To Spend A Day In Portland

Portland! The city of roses, trees, and hipsters. Kirill and I went last month for our anniversary (after a quick stop at Cannon Beach). It’s got an interesting vibe and it’s cute. It has great street art and nice architecture. It’s almost New York-y with the fire escape buildings, but smaller. And it’s super green – I swear there was a tree every few metres. …

Blue Monochrome: Bomber Jacket & Printed Slip Dress

Monochrome dressing is fun. Black and/or white is what usually comes to mind but today I tried a blue monochrome look with a bomber jacket & printed slip dress. It’s something I’ve been wanting to try for a while now. Blue is my happy colour. It reminds me of the ocean, clear skies, summer.

Sporty Chic: Mint Crop Top & Chiffon Joggers

I don’t love the term sporty chic, but I don’t know how else to describe today’s look. A mint crop top & chiffon joggers paired with my biggest heels. That’s right, chiffon joggers.

The gold makes the grey much more interesting, don’t you think? Also the the bustier tee & pleated skirt combo is pretty cute IMHO. Lately I’ve been a lot more deliberate and careful …

How To Buy Jeans Online (That Actually Look Good)

You read that right. How to buy jeans online. It sounds crazy – even though online shopping is getting more and more popular most people still wouldn’t consider getting jeans without physically seeing them first. It’s hard enough to find jeans that fit in brick & mortar stores, especially for us shorties, but I’ve discovered it is possible to find jeans that fit well online! …
