Off to Oregon!

This afternoon my parents and I are heading to Portland for a almost a week, so it will be a while until my next post. My dad got one of his Masters degrees at Portland State University back in the '60s and this trip is basically for him to show off the campus and meet up with his old hippie college buddies. I'm also going to be visiting a friend there myself, which will be nice.

Portland is one of my favorite cities because it is so gorgeous and so green and so modern. Every time I'm out there, I feel motivated to go hiking or mountain climbing or bike-riding. And for a girl who wears dresses and heels just to go the grocery store, that is saying a LOT.

I'm leaving you with a few more outfits I wore this week. I have a really shitty digital camera, so I'm sorry the images came out poorly.

I hope everyone has a fab weekend and I look forward to reading your blogs when I get back!



Dress, Anthropologie; jacket, Ralph Lauren



Dress, Betsey Johnson; shoes, Jessica Simpson






Dress, Forever 21; scarf, no label (purchased at art festival); pin, vintage; purse, Kate Spade; shoes, DKNY

I personally like the purple dress. I can't critique fashion, but I like that dress for all the reasons that make it look hot, sexy, and yet conservatively complicated.
