Took some photos in some of my current favorite pieces from Whimsy & Row. I've been really getting into decorated the apartment and making it really cozy and overflowing with plants. It makes it the perfect place to work from home and obviously take photos for the blog as well!

This first look is TOTALLY the "I live in Portland" look. Classic button up, denim, and a chunky beanie...pretty much the Portland uniform and I actually really love it. It's not typically something I wear often but when I do I realize why so many people go to this type of outfit. Also, beanies are sooo perfect for lazy hair days. I love them for that. 

I hope you guys like these photos! I highly recommend you guys checking out Whimsy & Row! They have so many great pieces, not only just clothing but also home decor and bath/beauty products (more on that coming soon!) Support local and small businesses!

Top Best Mini-Suede Bags

6L0A3296 6L0A3305 6L0A3324
It's getting easier and easier to find great products literally everywhere. I was so surprised when I was browsing Amazon and actually seeing some really great brands. When I stumbled upon this Loeffler Randall bag, I knew it had to be mind. I seem to have a bit of an obsession with anything suede, whether it's shoes or bags...I just love suede. Plus a tassel and a cool shape, this bags a winner. AND ON SALE
So since I seem to wear little suede bags like they're going out of style, I thought I would do a little round up of some of my current favorites. Shop them below and let me know which one is your favorite!

Denim Days

Denim is such a staple for me. While most people might be lounging around the house in sweats, many times, I go for denim instead. Often times the denim I wear is that comfortable.

6L0A3375 6L0A3357
These jeans from Dear John denim is one of those pairs. They're perfect for lounging around the house, sipping my morning coffee and then perfect to throw on a cute top when I have to run errands and get out of the house. This boot cut is perfect for me too, especially when I don't want to wear my skinny jeans. These look so good with boots or even a short heel. 
Don't settle for anything less than great denim.

At Home with Helix Sleep

6L0A3275 6L0A3289 6L0A3284
Your home is where you should feel most inspired and comfortable! I truly believe this. You need to be able to relax and recharge. So having a good mattress is essential for comfort and being able to recharge. When I first moved back to Portland, I was sleeping on an air mattress for a couple of months. The mattress ended up busting on one side too, so it was lop sided and EXTRA uncomfortable. Then, this Helix mattress came into my life and changed everything. It's the first mattress that is actually my own and memory foam! I was able to customize it to how I wanted as well. I tend to like to be kind of cold when I sleep so I can snuggle in my blankets and Helix has an option to make the mattress cool!
It's been a few months sleeping on my Helix mattress and I high recommend getting one if you've been thinking about it!

*This mattress was gifted to me but all opinions are my own. It's amazing!!

Plant Shopping

6L0A2220 6L0A2202 6L0A2203 6L0A2201
I'm sure by now, you guys are fully aware of my plant obsession. I love adding them to my place and getting new ones for my collection. They really are the perfect way to instantly decorate a space and I am slowly trying to make my apartment look like the inside of Pistils Nursery (seen here in the photos).  And since it's been snowing, raining, freezing rain, all of the above here in Portland, I want nothing more to stay inside with all of the plants.

My favorite places in Portland to shop for plants:
1. Pistils Nursery
2. Solabee's
3. Portland Nursey (Division and Stark locations)

Petits Bonheurs

6L0A2531 6L0A2505 6L0A2555 6L0A2536
I'm a sucker for a good graphic tee. They're great for putting together last minute outfits and can be dressed up or down. The problem is, most of the time when I'm browsing Pinterest or Tumblr and I see a tee I love, it ends up being sold out. Which is why I ended up making my own! I made this tee and it was only $20! (No this is not a sponsored post!) I was just browsing online and came across Zazzle where you can design your own tees. When I was browsing Tumblr, I also came across a cute graphic that said, "Le vie est faite en petits bonheurs" which translates from French to English to "Life is full of small pleasures." Just the words and the way it looked instantly inspired me to make it into a tee. Which makes this tee even more special every time I wear it!


What I'm Wearing: Tee: Made by me at Zazzle, Jeans: Vintage Levi's, Coat: Vintage, Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell. And Coava coffee in hand!

Gold Hoops

6L0A3128 6L0A3158 6L0A3142 6L0A3151
When I was in high school, I dated a guy who I thought I was madly in love with. I'm pretty sure we all think this with our first love. But looking back now, I realize it wasn't the picture perfect "love" I thought it was. Of course we had some really good times together and at the time, he was my best friend. But for some reason, after all of these years, I still remember him telling me he didn't like earrings on me.  So, young me, in love with this boy and wanting nothing but him to think the world of me, I let my ears close up because he didn't like them. Now looking back at that, I can't believe how ridiculous I was to do something because of what a guy said or liked or didn't like about me. To this day, I continue to second guess and always ask for other's opinions and approvals. But why? 
I know this is kind of a lot for just a simple blog post about earrings but for some reason, every time I put these earrings on I feel reassurance in myself and as though I'm pushing away those doubts. 
I'm working on being a stronger version of myself and it's all starts with baby steps, even if it's just a simple pair of gold hoops. And I think they look damn good on me!


Also these are clip on earrings because I'm too big of a baby to get them pierced again! lol

The Camel Coat

If you've been following my blog from the beginning, you may know how long I have love thrifting and vintage hunting. There' s just nothing like finding that hidden treasure after digging and searching through dozens of racks. Well this camel coat is probably my most prized vintage find yet. I found this Christian Dior camel coat during last summer while sifting through a local thrift store. The moment I saw it I knew it was a gem! The sleeves were HUGE and the entire thing just took over my entire body lol but I still bought it! I ended up getting it and got it tailored a couple months ago. IT'S MY FAVORITE PIECE IN MY CLOSET! The color is so rich and it keeps me so warm. And I always drool over designer pieces so it's nice to finally have found something in my price range AND vintage. SCORE. 
This entire look is pretty much my uniform these days. Camel coat, tee, levi's and boots. Done.

Winter Florals in Christy Dawn

I've been saving this post and I figured it would be the perfect first post of the year. 
This is one of my all time favorite outfits. There's just something about it that makes me feel so special and beautiful. I love how delicate the floral print is and the wrap fit. It's so feminine which is usually something I don't always describe as my style. Every little detail about this dress I love and I know that the designer, Christy Dawn, really thought about every little detail as well. Her dresses are so romantic and timeless. I love the vintage flair they all have while still being so modern and fresh. I could wear this with vintage clogs from the 70s or dress it down with a pair of converse. It's the perfect piece for any girl, any style. 
Everyone needs a dress like this in their wardrobe. Something that really makes them feel special when they have it on. Plus all of their pieces are designed and made in LA. Need I say more??
