Spring Neutrals in Rainy Portland

As many of you know, I am a full time blogger here in Portland, OR! I love this city so much, it's constantly inspiring me and I feel really lucky to be so close to incredible outdoor locations and adorable local shops. But Portland rains SO much this time of year which can be really frustrating when you have lots of outfits you want to photograph. Last week, Leo (my boyfriend, who takes a lot of my photos) had a day off so we were planning on shooting a few looks. I was really feeling motivated and excited to get some outfits done. I got ready, had my outfits planned out and then of course it started to pour. 
I know this sounds like such a small and dumb problem, compared to so many other issues currently going on it the world. But it really deflated my spirit and mood, and of course I started to cry.
We decided to try and take some images anyway and I was so happy we took a chance. These images turned out better than I imagined and you can hardly tell it was raining (luckily this adorable car was parked under a few trees!).
Basically, this little bump and change in plans made me realize that sometimes you can't force things and you just have to go with the flow! Things will most likely work itself out. Learning to brush small things off is so important and I'm really starting to learn that. Also, being self employed, I rarely ever just take a real break. I am constantly planning or shooting outfits or photos or posting something. Learning to step away just for a bit to recharge is really important for self health and care.

These pieces have been on repeat within the past year or so. I love wearing pieces different ways and then showing you all how I wear them! These Mari Giudicelli mules have been my go to since the minute I got them. They go with so many different outfits and seasons! Seriously my dream shoes.
I'm really looking forward to carrying this color palette through the rest of the season!

What I'm Wearing: Coat: Max Mara (Similar here), Tee: Rag & Bone, Necklace: Lucy Williams X Missoma London, Pants: Rachel Comey, Shoes: Mari Giudicelli, Bag: Clare V.
