This weekend, the weather cleared up and Joey and I headed over to my favorite neighborhood in Portland, Ladd’s Addition. The majority of the houses feel like they’re out of classic fairytales with peaked roofs, overgrown shrubbery and stone walkways leading to oversized front porches. There are roses in circular gardens throughout the neighborhood which is the perfect place to have a picnic in the spring and summer. If you’re visiting Portland over the next few months, add this neighborhood to your must-see places. There’s a ton of fun stuff (restaurants, food carts and shops) to walk to from this area.
My friends at Pinkyotto just sent me the gorgeous Rachel dress which is a welcome addition to my overly dark wardrobe. To add my own spin, I mixed in a black leather peter pan collar and a vintage black patent belt. This dress rolls up neatly and doesn’t wrinkle so I see myself packing it for many upcoming trips.

This is going to be one completely crazy week. My favorite llama is coming to town (!), a campaign I’ve been working on for the last few months is due and my dear friend Star is having her first-ever Portland solo art show!
