What I Wore | The Hangout: 4.28.13

The Hangout Slingshot S.E. Portland


When I’m in town, the place you’ll most commonly find me hanging out at after a long day of work is Slingshot Lounge. The food is good, the service is great, the music is awesome and did I mention that there’s an old school photo booth?! Everyone has a neighborhood hangout and this is mine.

Over the weekend I realized that it’s been a long time since I did a straight up “this is what I wore” post that wasn’t shot by a professional photographer and featured something I wore out and about on an average day. While I love working with new photographers and engaging in a game of dress-up is one of my favorite outlets, I also believe in balance. So while I’m thankful to have had the opportunity to get photographed dancing through the Louvre, visiting Disneyland and chillin’ in the in the English countryside this year, I also love just hanging out in my neighborhood in S.E. Portland.

While visiting LA earlier this month, I popped into a vintage store and spotted this very 90s white leather DKNY skirt — it’s a little much for Portland style so I dressed it down with my Y-3 sneaker wedges (from 2010). Unlike me, Rocky shops a lot less. He’s had that same striped sweater since he was a baby…and he’s 6 now!
